23 Ways to Add Sparkling Glitter & Sequins to Wedding Décor

Brides love bling, so it's no wonder that many couples incorporate shimmering details into their wedding décor. Whether in the form of sparkling sequins or glimmering glitter, shiny accents are an impeccable way to make your wedding unforgettable. If glitter and sequins don't quite go with your theme, but you still want to incorporate some shimmer on your wedding day, wear a sequin dress for your engagement party or don a pair of glistening heels or flats beneath your wedding dress.

For brides that do desire a wedding filled with radiant décor, there are countless ways to incorporate glistening details into your ceremony and reception. Flower girls look lovely when dressed in sequined silver or gold frocks, and paper goods – such as invitations, ceremony programs, menus, and straw decals – are great places to feature glittering elements. Sequin linens offer a wonderful way to highlight a sweetheart or head table, and they especially stand out when a transluscent charger is used at each place setting. Some couples also add glitter and sequins to table numbers, chair covers, and even the wedding cake!
