In the Name of the Bling

Now I love me some sparkle just like any other girl, but I'm often dismayed to see brides quickly falling in love with a dress that has a lot of razzle and dazzle, but may not necessarily be of the best quality. Even worse, I once met a bride that wanted to redo her gorgeous Angel Sanchez with its clean sophisticated lines into a bedazzled mess (sacraligious I know!). Yes, we all want to look and feel like a princess, but it takes a trained eye (and a bit of restraint) to distinguish the fine line between all that glitter.

There are many ways you can sparkle and still look polished and elegant without having to go the traditional fully beaded polyblend route. So may I humbly suggest these brilliant pieces that still convey all the pomp and circumstance of a high society affair:

Sparkle needn't be relagated to just the dress - there's a world of possiblity if we think outside the box. From the queen of modern day wedding couture, Vera Wang shows us that a little glitz around your neck makes quite the bridal and fashion statement. Don't you love the bold black ribbon? I think it will contrast with the white hues of your gown quite splendidly. If you're a bride that has a simple understated wedding dress, an embellished necklace can provide all the drama you need for the day. Or if your the bride with a high fashion wedding gown, adding a statement necklace can be the elusive final touch you need.

Not quite a necklace person? How about big bold earrings or stacked chunky gemstone bracelets that are equally as amazing? Whatever the jewelry, you'll be making a worthwhile investment - one that you can wear again and again!
