All That Glitters!
A bride can never have too much sparkle – so we’ve put together some of our favourite glittery wedding ideas to help you get inspired. From cakes and cocktails, to invitations and dresses, here is all the inspo you need to make your big day sparkle and shine!
1). Table Decor
Add a touch of glitter to your wedding breakfast with a shimmery tablecloth and some glittery cutlery. We love metallic shades like silver and rose-gold for an elegant, chic touch.
2). Hair Accessories
Add some bling to your bridal hairstyle with a sparkly hair accessory. Whether you want to keep it simple with silver hair clips, or go all out with a princess-style tiara, make sure you have serious sparkle in your hair.
3). Cake Pop Canapés
Cake pops have quickly become the go-to canapé for brides who want to add some fun to their wedding day. We love these pastel coloured cake pops with edible glitter- absolutely perfect for a spring or summer wedding!
4). Name Cards
This is a great opportunity for some wedding DIY. All you’ll need is cardboard, a pen, glue and glitter. This is such a simple yet effective way to instantly add a sparkly touch to your big day.
5). Glitter Writing
Ideal for your head table, glitter writing is a popular wedding idea for couples who want to add some sparkles to their wedding breakfast. If you like this idea, then you can buy or hire one from your venue decorations supplier, or even try making one yourself!
6). Your Bridesmaids!
Make sure your girls shine as bright as you in stunning, sparkly dresses. For something a little different, why not opt for a stylish shade of copper, or feminine rose-gold?
Your guests will be so excited to receive their super sparkly invitations! Make sure that your wedding stationery matches your theme by talking to your stationery supplier about what you’d like so they can design your dream invitations.
8). Glitter Cocktails
No sparkle themed wedding is complete without some glittery reception drinks. Your guests will have so much fun sipping on these pretty cocktails – but make sure you use edible glitter!
9). Your Dress!
What better way to make a statement as you walk down the aisle than wearing a gown covered in beautiful sparkles? We absolutely love these sequin-covered bridal gowns. A must for a bride who wants to bring the ‘wow factor’.
When it comes to confetti, make sure you choose some with a good deal of shimmer. This is a wonderful way to add a sparkly detail to your wedding photos. If you still want more, you could try some silver streamers or glittery party poppers to fill the air with sparkles as you leave your ceremony.
11). Glittery Cakes
Don’t forget to bring the sparkle-factor to your wedding cake! Whether you go for edible golden paint, or 3D glittery details, make sure your cake looks absolutely beautiful.
12). Sequin-studded Shoes
Complete your bridal look with a pair of killer sparkly heels. Lots of footwear brands stock designs like this, but if you can’t find a pair with enough bling, you could always get creative with a glue-gun and some diamantes?
13). Nailed it!
Make sure your wedding manicure matches your glittery theme by adding a subtle splash of sparkles to your nails. This will help to coordinate your blingy bridal look, and will look so pretty with your ring!
As such versatile wedding canapés, macaroons can match any wedding theme. For a glittery wedding, either use edible paint to colour them so that they look shimmery and silver, or decorate them with a little bit of golden glitter.
15) Table Cloths
Transform your wedding venue into glittery wonderland with some pretty glittery table cloths. This simple yet beautiful idea is a great way to instantly make your venue look more glamorous!
16) Cake Topper
Match your sparkly wedding cake with some pretty, glittery cake toppers. We love these simple DIY hearts – they’re a great way to bring your wedding theme to your cake!
17) The Ultimate Bling
No bride is complete without her fabulously shimmery ring. Remember that it’s your wedding day, so don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!
