Add some dazzle to your wedding gown with sequins and glitter
Whether traditional or over-the-top, a wedding dress must serve its primary purpose of ensuring that the bride stands out from the crowd. One of the easier ways by which to achieve this is by making the dress a one-of-a-kind work of art, which literally dazzles those who view it. This brings forward the availability of the popular dazzle gown, which, although not available with that specific title, is sparkling, shimmering, and embellished to the top with all that glitters.
Alfred Angelo’s Disney wedding dress collection offers both dazzle as well as fantasy themed wedding dresses to those who want to channel their inner Princess. The whole Princess bride look is essentially about wearing a dress encrusted with Swarovski or similar crystals, and keeping the accessories in line with the dress; usually a jeweled tiara is worn along with jeweled heels. Sometimes the bride is even known to wear a jewel-encrusted veil and carry a scepter, depending on how big a statement she wants to make!
Vera Wang, one of the best known names in the bridal business, is famous for her classic wedding dress styles, most of which can be customized to suit the bride’s preference. Her collection of dazzling gowns include illusion necklines and interesting lace appliqué backs which have dots of sequins and lines of glitter adorning them, lending a shimmery look to the dress as a whole. Also a new entrant to the wedding accessories and cutlery market, Wang offers similarly-themed sparkling and shimmering wedding veils, tiaras, even celebratory champagne glasses and candles, all of which will aid the production of a truly glamorous wedding.
Lazaro offers a more traditional take to the sparkling wedding gown with its collection of ivory shaded tulle, cameo sweetheart neckline and Alencon lace bodice gowns. The bling and shine factor is factored into the gown via Swarovski encrusted lace appliqué work and wide satin sashes with bows. The choice as to whether to have one large bow at the waist as a centerpiece, or to have multiple bows, is up to the bride. Either way, the combination of the sparkling appliqué and the shimmering satin make for a truly dazzling effect.
One of the easiest ways to transform a plain wedding gown into a sparkling, sequined work of wonder is to use shiny beads, crystals, and shiny fabric such as satin. Those with little expertise in the sewing department and great fears about ruining their dress should take baby steps by looping a satin sash around the waist. This look is simple, chic and will add a small touch of shimmer to a regular white wedding dress. For the more daring, feel free to sew in a number of sequins, beads, and crystals into one or more areas of your dress. Chic and elegant appeal will be achieved by focusing the bling work in one dedicated area, which could include a single shoulder, the waist area or the lower back. Louder, more fashion forward touches can be achieved by covering one entire portion of the dress such as the torso, dress train, or both shoulders.
