How to Incorporate Glitter Into Your Wedding

Some brides want their entire day to sparkle.

While some brides prefer a more neutral and natural look for their wedding day, many want their celebration to incorporate plenty of glitz and glam. Since a wedding is such a special event, it's important for many couples to feel as though the décor complements the occasion – and what better way to epitomize celebration than with glitter? From opulent, sparkling decorations to minimal glitz that only makes its debut in the small details, there are a number of ways to feature this trend in your nuptials.

For a subtle way to incorporate glitter, try finding a pair of heels with a glittery look or a style with a glittered sole for an even more subdued option. Ceremony choices include wrapping your bouquet or your bridesmaids' nosegays with glitter ribbon or showcasing a sparkling sign or monogram at the entrance of your venue. Have some fun at cocktail hour with straw ornaments featuring some sparkle or dip vases into glitter and place them on your high-top cocktail tables or in lounge areas. At the reception, incorporate some glitz with your table numbers, wrap glitter ribbon around candles, and even provide glittery favors to your guests!
