We’ve surveyed our 2017 brides and one of their favorite wedding themes for Spring is a ceremony and a reception that is a no-holds barred, all-out GLAM affair! Yay! It’s our favorite too!! After all, haven’t we all dreamed of a fairy-tale wedding since we were little girls?
We are happy to see the return of old school glamour in the bridal gown designs we’ve spotted at the apparel markets lately. Heavy satin dresses with major embellishments and beading! And, it is so refreshing to see the theme reflected in the style brides are deciding on for their special day too. This spring will witness lots of weddings filled with glitz, bling and foof.
A Glam Wedding is the chance to go ALL OUT. A Glam Wedding means that the answer to the question , “Is this TOO much?” is ALWAYS “of course not!” The kind of wedding where the perfect shoes are these by Jimmy Choo:
Perhaps your wedding won’t include a giant white tent filled with twinkle lights, glittering chandeliers and the captivating hues of blush and gold, but you can certainly take inspiration from this glamorous image, ne c’est pas? And you can incorporate the ideas on a smaller scale for your event.
Opulent floral arrangements, ornate candelabras and luxe linens are always a ritzy choice.
For you All Out Glam Wedding Reception make sure you have lots of metallics, beads, pearls, floral arrangements and chandeliers! Think “More is MORE!” And then add a little bit extra. Layers of opulence equals an over the top glamour!
For this extravagant theme, please consider a white tuxedo jacket and classic black bow tie for your groom. It is so old-school and handsome!
We love the vintage vibe and great glamorous inspiration below, courtesy of Ashley Elizabeth Designs.
Glam teardrop earrings and a beaded hair clip are the perfect accessories for this style. [We have this Mariell hair clip at The Gilded Gown.]
