Fun Ways to Add Glitter to Your Wedding

Few things say celebration like glitter! Add some pizzazz to your event by sprinkling touches of glitter throughout your wedding. 

Read on for some ideas for adding glitter.

Glitter Shoes – Why wear plain pumps when you can easily jazz them up? Here is a great tutorial about how to add glitter to shoes. As shown in the example, your shoes can be your “something blue.” For a more subtle look, a light blush pink would be lovely.

Glitter Photo Booth Backdrop – With photo booths all the rage, this sparkly moon and stars foam board backdrop is a great setting for guests and the wedding party to snap a picture. Martha Stewart adds a clear stool to give the illusion the bride is sitting on the moon.

Cake Topper – These heart shaped cake toppers are deceptively simple – all you need to make them are wooden skewers, paper, glitter and glue. Use individual hearts in cupcakes or stagger multiple hearts on a larger cake.

Favor BagsAdd sparkle to plain favor bags with washi tape, glue and glitter. The tutorial shown on Oh Lovely Day finishes off the look by also creating circle tags to tie on the bag.
It used to be you could only find glitter in silver and gold, but today there is a wide variety of colors, so you are sure to find glitter to compliment your wedding scheme. For an even more festive look, you can mix multiple colors of glitter.

Glitter is a simple way to incorporate sparkle into your wedding.

Which ideas would you try?
