Holiday Sparkle and Cheer – All Year Round

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Ok, yes, it’s the holidays and all, but I’m referring to the winter sparkle season! This time of year we get the glitter and the glitz out to play but why not celebrate with shimmer whatever the season? I’ve rounded up my favorite sparkly, sparkly ideas to help keep you in the holiday spirit all year long!

If your big gift is a sparkling ring, then the best advice I can give you is to relax and enjoy this time! There’s plenty of time to dive into wedding planning once the frenzy of the holiday season is over, so for now breathe, cozy up with your fiancé, and have an extra glass of champagne.

Erickson Beamon White Wedding Necklace

Winter is be the best time for picking out your wedding accessories, especially when it comes to your jewelry! If you’re opting for a gown that’s light on sparkle, add a little flash with this year’s signature accessory, a statement necklace. Exercise restraint when it comes to decking out your wedding day look and keep the heavy sparkle to one signature piece to maximize the impact.

Bridesmaids in Sparkles | KT Merry Photography

Let your ladies shine a little on your big day! I love this bridal party look in shimmering neutrals – let your bridesmaids pick their own dress in your color scheme with the gentle suggestion that sparkle is encouraged! They’ll love you for getting to pick a dress they can wear again, and for the excuse to buy one with a little glamour!

Sparkling Table Linen | Jose Villa Photography

Is there anything more glam than a sequin linen? I love a pop of sparkle on a Sweetheart or Cake Table and full on sequins are the best way to go! Since the linens are taking center stage, you can go a little lighter on table decor. Clustered bud vases or matte porcelain vessels offer a lovely contrast to glamorous linens, while candles make them sparkle even brighter.

I’ve covered plenty of options for wearing or decorating with a little sparkle, but what about eating it? Ask your baker about adding luster dust to your wedding cake for a little edible glitter – not to mention an unforgettable cake!
