Sparkle/Glitter Wedding Ideas?
hi everyone,
I'm looking to have my wedding theme/ colors be plain and simple with lots of sparkle! I think I'm going to either have white or ivory with maybe some silver and lots of sparkles and glitter ..... Just to give it a little flavor and color I plan on hiring a lighting reception person to give the reception room a hint of purple or pink. I don't want it to look cheesy or like a 15-year-old girls dream bedroom... lol... I'm looking for elegant... Any ideas on how to decorate the chapel, reception area, center pieces, cake....etc.??? Thanks for the help!

Maybe a lot of silk/shimmer tablecloths, really good lighting, small twinkly LED lights?
If you're thinking of adding any actual glitter/confetti. I would check with your venue first. Most venues don't allow anything tiny, ESPECIALLY glitter. But I'm sure you can get the same effect without the mess...
For the cake you can probably do some small beading on it, so when the light catches it, it will look like it's sparkling.

I think using glittery paper to cut out shapes to assemble around tables, isles, wherever would be a good way to get your sparkle w ithout the mess. Also, crystal bead strings hanging from some ivory branches would be really pretty in soft lighting for centerpieces.

IMO I would lean more towards crystal beading/garland and such than the glitter aspect. Still do glitter, but just not too much that it seems princess-y.

I am having a difficult time envisioning it because I am going in a totally different direction. (Retro Garden Party) BUT! I have seen a lot of David Tutera (?) shows and he has done some beautiful things.

You could use led lights or fiberoptic lighting.

be careful with ANY use of glitter because that stuff spreads around so easily and sticks to everything! Once it's on you it's so hard to get off....you'll end up with pictures of your guests on the dance floor with little sparkles on their face because it was on the table, they touched that then their faces...KWIM?

Crystal curtains are great behind the bridal and cake tables and even the entrance. A crystal chandelier in the center of your dance floor. Diamond confetti on the tables. Edible glitter or crystals on your cake and a crystal cake topper. Silver ting-ting or silver glittered fern leaves in your centerpieces. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination and your budget!

Make sure your venue allows glitter...before you purchase your decoration. We do not allow glitter or confetti it DOES NOT bio-degrade and is IMPOSSIBLE to get out of the grout and rock landscape and tiny cracks of our 60 year old hard wood floors it also ends up on your face and on your guests when you hug them. I am all about the BLING...BLING but not with glitter. Crystals, clear and pink glass beeds
would be an elegant way to give the bling without looking like a little kids art project : )
