You’ve always had a penchant for all things glamorous, and for that reason, you want your wedding dress, and not just your jewelry, to dazzle. Let’s face it, we girls just like shiny, sparkly things!

The spotlight’s on you, so it’s your time to shine with gorgeous wedding dresses that feature mouthwatering embellishments that complement or replace traditional bling. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets-step aside because the dress can also contribute to wedding day glam.

Fabric
Want glamor? Then choose a wedding dress that’s in a metallic shade, like a lighter gold or silver. Light gold is more preferable to darker shades because it’s less harsh and tacky. There’s not much selection in the type of fabric if it’s metallic colored; you’ll find that most are in some form of satin since it’s already got that appreciable sheen and texture.

Embellishments

Now here’s where you’ve got to take heed. The embellishments of a wedding dress is where designers can really work the bling factor. While pearls, sequins, beads and metallic embroidery are all great details, if you want bling, only crystals and rhinestones are de rigeur and will do it right for the glamorous bride.

When done properly, crystals and rhinestones make a wedding dress absolutely fabulous. They can appear on the bodice and/or the skirt, adding the vital wow factor you’re looking for. While these embellishments do tend to bring up the price of the dress, there’s nothing else other than jewelry that is sufficient, so isn’t it worth it? Especially when some dresses offer crystals by world renown manufacturer, Swarovski!

We know you like the bling, but remember not to go overboard with it. After all, you still want to look like a bride and not a chandelier!
