Metallic + sparkle wedding decor ideas

Categories   Wedding Inspiration

Yep, nothing like a little metallic fabric confetti to get your Monday off to a sweet start. Whether you’re planning a bachelorette party with a touch of sparkle, your wedding needs an additional boost of pizazz, or you’re planning way too far in advance for New Year’s (anyone?), this shoot, styled by “prop mistress”, Ginny Branch will color you shiny!

Fab idea #1: Use glitter tape or just plain old glue and glitter to create mini frames around thick card stock escort cards with each of your guests’ names.

Fab idea #2: Can we get excited about the idea of a glittery cake? Yes, please. Bands of edible silver and gold make for a lively bite of shininess. And the cake stand? Make one yourself using a candlestick, a fancy plate, and some spray glue and glitter.

Fab idea #3: A pretty alternative to a traditional floral bouquet. Why not choose vintage millinery flowers and leaves for a shimmery stunner?! Then skip the bubble, rice, rose petal send-off for shredded metallic fabric confetti. In a word-magical. This is also a fun prop for guests to toss in a photobooth over and over.

We’re convinced these ideas are all easy enough to do on your own. Are you in?

I am in love with the glitter dress in this shoot but have looked at Fabulous Frocks of Atlanta, Ivy and Aster, & Neiman Marcus and can't find it anywhere... can someone let me know where to find it? thank you, any help is appreciated :)

Krista Dial on Apr 16, 2012

Okay...this is GORGEOUS! :) And yes, can't help but think of New Year's, but it's all so sparkly and fun! Would be perfect for a winter wedding too...just stunning! :)

Deanna on Apr 16, 2012

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! the sparkly dress! Must have for one of my bridesmaids but I can't find it!

Charin and Deanna, we can't find it either and would love to know if it's still for sale. I hope someone pipes in with some info on if it's available anywhere else!

Hi Ladies! I will be getting back to you all shortly with the dressd details.

Thank y'all so much for sharing this shoot! We all had the best time dreaming this story up together and I am just obsessed with Erica's backdrops and papergoods! That dress came from Neiman Marcus in their contemporary section... maybe Alice & Olivia, but it was from last fall. Thank you again 100 Layer Cake, we're all huge fans!

Mrs Average Bride on Apr 16, 2012

I love EVERYTHING about this shoot. Glitter is my new favorite thing in the world. What was used to make the background frames on the wall? It looks like washi tape??

Charin Kent on Apr 16, 2012

Thanks Ginny for the dress details, I will now scour the internet to see if I can find one remaining somewhere out there so I can give it a loving home ;)

Samantha Wang on Apr 16, 2012

The dress is beautiful! Can someone send me the details of the sparkle dress as well??

Wende on Apr 16, 2012

Wow! Gorgeousness. I've actually been married 22 years this June (um, child bride? Hee) and THIS is exactly what I would want if I could have a do-over. That cake, in fact, is in my pin-list of ideas for our 25th. SO gorgeous. I even tweeted it, I was just blown away with how lovely these ideas are!

Elizabeth on Apr 16, 2012

Hi ladies, you can find details about the dress on the free online edition of Atlanta Weddings' Spring/Summer issue, on atlantamagazineweddings.com. It is the Tallulah dress by Alice & Olivia, and it's actually on sale for a great deal at Neimans right now! http://www.neimanmarcus.com/p/Alice-Olivia-Tallulah-Sequined-Party-Dress-Contemporary/prod134880017/

This one is similar to the sold out Alice & Olivia Dress http://www.bcbg.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12564691&cp=2769162.4370075&clickid=cat_leftnav_txt&parentPage=family

I am in love with all of the sparkle!

Betty on Apr 19, 2012

Those glittery cakes can shine up the whole place! Beautiful wedding no doubt. I want to try this glittery technique on my cupcake wedding cakes.

Hi! I love this glittery idea! I have entered this post in a gallery page called "Ways to Deck the Halls with Glitter", linking full credit back to your blog, of course. I would love for you to review it and please let me know that I have your approval. Otherwise I will take it off of the page immediately. Thanks, Tami @ Curb Alert! http://tamicurbalert.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html
