Sparkly Nail Varnish

Your nails will be in a lot of your wedding pictures – displaying your ring, holding your bouquet and more. Get creative with your wedding nail art and pick something super sparkly!

Glitter Eye Shadow

Whether you’re doing your own wedding makeup or you’re hiring a makeup artist, introduce some subtle sparkle to your look with a glitter eye shadow. Choose silvery tones for blue eyes and gold/copper tones for brown or green eyes.

Brooch Bouquet

Swap the traditional wedding bouquet for a glittering brooch bouquet! Make your own from vintage brooches and trinkets you’ve collected, or buy one ready-made like the gorgeous creation below from Brooch Bride.

Gold Bow Tie

If you’re looking your glitteriest (yes, that is a word), don’t leave the groom out! What about a glittery bow tie, like this one from SunKissedByElle on Etsy.

Rose Gold Buttonhole

The groom can also glam up his look with an alternative buttonhole – we love this rose gold one from PointlessPrettyEtsy on Etsy.

Sparkly Ballet Flats

If the pictures of the glittery heels at the start of your article made your feet hurt just by looking at them, then get some sparkly ballet flats to change into! We love these Anabel shoes from Charlotte Mills. There’s no shame in having flat wedding shoes when they’re as pretty as this.

Glamorous Wedding Cake

Your wedding cake is the prettiest and tastiest way to add glitter to your wedding! And if you don’t fancy a super creative wedding cake, why not just glam up your wedding cake stand instead?

Sequin Table Cloths

We are obsessed with sequin table cloths (in fact we’re wondering if we can just put them on our desks at work…). They’re a great way to fill your venue with glitter – or opt for glittery table runners or a single sparkly table (for the top table or the cake table) for impact.

Sparkly Photo Booth Props

Make your wedding photo booth even more glamorous by only allowing your guests to pose with glittery props. It’s a totally reasonable wedding rule.

A table plan displayed on a gold or silver frame, or adorned with lots of glitter, is a stylish and sparkly way to show your guests where they’re sitting.
