Gorgeously Glittered Affair

Throw a reception that sparkles and shines

Are you and your husband-to-be looking for ways to glitter and shine on your special day? Throwing a reception that’s sophisticated and chic doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Just look for glitzy accessories to glam up a traditional black and white wedding palette.

From a glittery wedding dress to a shimmery headband, a bride-to-be has oodles of options at her disposal when it comes to shining throughout the evening. Chair covers adorned with glitter and a cake featuring bright, light-reflecting accents will fit perfectly with the theme as well.

Give guests a taste of the luxurious night to come by placing diamond-shaped tea light holders along a hallway to light the way to the reception. The dim illumination can also work to create a cozy atmosphere for the main ballroom and set a romantic mood. While you’re at it, use antique acrylic place card holders to identify each guest’s name and table number.

Finally, set each table with silver place settings and fancy crystal wine glasses, using high-quality tablecloths in black or navy blue. Don’t forget – diamond ring napkin holders can dress up bland or boring linens and these adorable faux jewels make for an excellent take-home gift for guests at the end of the night. Your guests will be beaming weeks after the event is over!
