Venue Decorations

If you want to add just a touch of sparkle to your reception, you can dress up your wedding chair with shiny fabrics. Keep the shimmering theme going with sequin table cloths, they’re a great way to fill your venue with sparkle! Or opt for glittery table runners, you don’t really need one for each table, just stagger them around the room as gilded accents.

Bridesmaid dresses

Let your girls shine in full-length gowns with a little shimmer. The reflection will make them look like they’re glowing all night long! If you want something less flashy, you can always opt for a little sparkle here and there with subtle touches of glitter into their dresses.

Bridal Look

Let’s start with the obvious – a sparkling wedding dress is a great way to include more shine into your day. If a glittery gown isn’t enough you can always finish off your bridal look with a pair of shoes that put Cinderella’s glass slippers to shame.

Why shouldn’t your cake sparkle too? Metallic shimmering cakes are so romantic and on trend right now! There are so many ways to personalise this trend to your own style – Make a sweet statement by going all out with a painted gold design, tone it down with just a foiled tier or use fine edible glitter (think: pixie dust) to give a decorative sheen to your cake without overpowering the whole design. You can add some personality to your wedding cake also with a simple glittery cake topper.
