All That Glitters

Who doesn’t love a little bit of sparkle? The shimmer of a sequin or two, or a hundred, has glistened into a fabulous trend. There are a million ways to incorporate these beauties into different elements of your wedding. Whether the glitter details are in the table settings, buntings, wedding stationary, the floral arrangements, the aisle throw, your dress, your bridesmaid’s dresses – the list is endless and weddings are sure to be glittering the night away.

What I love about it is that the sparkles and shimmers can be suited to just about any style of wedding. Whether it be a glamorous affair or an intimate vintage inspired theme, sequins could be your go-to for that ‘wow’ factor.

To help create a statement I recommend paring the beautiful tones of metallic like bronze or gold with rich hues of reds, mauves and pinks. These colours will complement each other and the sparkling textures, creating depth and warmth.

If you’ve opted for a dazzling sequin gown and sparkling jewellery, incorporating some glitter detail into other elements of your big day will tie it all together nicely. Imagine a subtle sequined ribbon, tied around your bouquet or candles dipped in glitter, teed with beautiful ornate cutlery and vintage mismatched place settings!!

Other fun ways to add that extra sparkle is to play with the lighting. Fairy lights, lanterns, disco balls… There are many ways to make light bounce around the room. Draping a beautiful piece of sequin fabric can also help create this effect and make a glamorous backdrop for a photo both at the same time.
