Close your eyes and envision your wedding day. What do you see? Sparkles? Shimmer? Maybe glitter? If you want glam wedding-day style on a dime, we have some sparkling suggestions to get you there.

Choose your accents
You know you want gold glitter to be the shining star on your wedding day but first, let’s talk accent colors. For a classic look, go with white and black. You’ll be able to look at your wedding photos in 20 years and not wonder “what were we thinking?!”. The bonus is that these colors are common enough that you’ll be able to score a deal on details like linens, centerpieces and even bridesmaid dresses. Plus, you don’t have to stress about color-matching a particular shade of purple or blue. Win-win.

Don’t be subtle
If you’re choosing to use gold glitter in your wedding-day look, then go big. Let us say that another way: shower (nearly) everything in glitter! Do not hold back! Okay, okay, maaaaaybe hold back a teeny, tiny bit. Keep your key pieces classic then add some sparkle. A gorgeous white dress with a shimmery gold sash. White or black draped tables with gold sequin runners. A traditional white cake with edible gold glitter cascading down its tiers. Get affordable gold foil napkins that take your bar from blah to beautiful. And shoes – don’t forget about the shoes! Gold glitter heels for all the ladies!

Set the tone
Your invitation is your guests’ first peek at your personal wedding style. From the moment they take this Glitter Illusion wedding invitation out of the envelope, they’ll know they’re in for an epic event. Our favorite thing about this invitation is obviously all that glittery goodness (sans the mess, thanks to vibrant printing!) but our second favorite thing is the price. Just 99¢ for the invitation AND respond postcard. Now take that cash you’re saving on invitations and invest it in a hot glue gun and all the jars of glitter you can handle.
