When Christmas arrives it is hard to escape a bit of glitter, whether it is on all the fabulous party dresses shops are inevitably crammed with or the decorations adorning a tree.
Either way, anyone tying the knot in a winter wonderland-themed ceremony may be keen to embrace the sparkling accessory on their big day and it can be easy to bring a bit of shimmer and shine to the occasion.
While some of you may want to dust your wedding flowers with a shower of sequins or even scatter them over the reception tables, other may want to incorporate it into their outfits.
Makeup is an easy way in which to do this and brides might want to follow the advice of one expert if they are keen to sparkle in their wedding photography without going over the top.
Celebrity makeup artist Ariane Poole said the best course of action is to choose two key areas of your face to apply the glitter and no more. This is because it should be used as an accent to highlight other features rather than being smeared all over.
She recommended "a glitter liner run along the base of the lashes" and this could be the perfect way to dazzle friends and family without going over the top.
Ms Poole continued: "If you have shimmer on your eyes then you can either leave it at that or you can choose to accent either the cheeks or the lips but not both. Too much glitter just makes you look a mess!"
It is not just the expert who likes to embrace a bit of shimmer, as Vogue reported at the end of September that the likes of Sass & Bride, Mark Fast and House of Holland all celebrated the trend on the catwalk with their spring/summer 2011 collections.
They may have been looking forward to next year, but we think a touch of glitter is the perfect choice to light up a winter wedding now.
Of course, not all of you will be keen to embrace a sparkly look with your make-up and if this is the case, why not try introducing it to your nails instead?
Ms Poole said there are a huge range of choices available so you can really take your pick when it comes to colours. While some of you may prefer a subtle, pastel tone with a hint of silver dust shining through, others may prefer to go for a quirky look and complement the shades of your wedding flowers with brighter alternatives.
For another idea why not got for a low-key body shimmer? This may be ideal for those of you who do not want to make a grand statement but are keen to add something special to your appearance.
"If there isn't one that you like you can make your own by mixing a little loose shimmer with your favourite body lotion," Ms Poole advised.
It can be as easy as that to really sparkle on your big day.
