Money can't buy that sparkle in your eye...

...But it sure can buy sparkly things for your wedding!!

Adding some bling to any space or table scape is a beautiful and simple way to create excitement and glamour to your event... and glamour is definitely IN.

Commenting on Louis Vuitton's Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection,
Marc Jacobs {creative director for Louis Vuitton} says,
"We were just attracted to things that shine!"

{Well, so are we.}

Here are just a few ways that we have incorporated bling, sparkle, and shine into the wedding of our beloved brides...

1. Crystal detail on a wedding gown can take any gown from bland to glam in no time! Many bridal boutiques and salons carry crystal embellished sashes that can tie around the waist of your gown to give it that extra something {special}.

2. We showered the cake table with color themed crystals and used crystal studded cake cutting utensils to elevate the presentation and table scape. It made for absolutely gorgeous pictures and captured the light beautifully!

3. Adding a broach can add luxury and vintage glamour to a bouquet in seconds. We have tons of broaches of all shapes and sizes... and if we don't have what you're looking for, we will find it for you!

4. Of course pearls are timeless and always appropriate for a wedding... but mixing some bling with your pearls is tres chic! After all, diamonds are a girl's best friend!

5. We found several elegant, antique gold trays for our bride to use for an escort card display on an 8-foot banquet table. We filled the trays with color themed crystals and positioned the escort cards in the crystals. Needless to say, this breathtaking display was the perfect way to welcome our bride's guests to the reception... and it sparkled all night long!

6. What better way to complete your perfect cake than to crown the top with a Swarovski Crystal monogram?! No flowers necessary-- as this cake topper speaks for itself and can be custom ordered in any combination of colors to coordinate perfectly with your wedding. What a beautiful keepsake for the bride and groom!

7. Remember those broaches we talked about? Here they are again! Who says a cake can't wear jewelry?! This is another easy, yet unexpected way to add glamour!

8. An exit can become a grand exit when the bride and groom are greeted with a beautiful display of sparklers! Not to mention, sparklers make for incredible pictures and they can really bring light to a dark night!

9. Of course we have seen colored shoes for brides, as it has been one of the biggest trends in the past year... but take it up a notch and add a little sparkle to your step! Don't concern yourself with what you should wear... choose a shoe that embraces your personal style. If you like to sparkle, then your wedding {and your wedding shoes} should sparkle, too!
