How To Bring A Little Bling To Your Wedding

When Marilyn Monroe sang that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, she wasn’t kidding. Those sparkling beauties sure do have us swooning, no matter what shape, size, or colour they come in. We love them, we know you love them, and honestly, just give us more.

However, more isn’t always an option, is it? While you’ll have the gorgeous rock on your finger, and we’re sure it’s just perfect, a little more touch of bling certainly wouldn’t hurt. For those Fairies who want their engagement rings to steal the show and don’t want to overdo the jewellery, or for anyone not willing to break the bank on a bejewelled overhaul, there are plenty of other ways to include a little glitz and glamour to your wedding day. Here are some of our favourites!

 

Nails

Getting a mani done is a must before any party, especially your wedding day. If you want to take that nude polish one step further, then add a little sparkle for a very subtle touch of luxury.

 

Shoes

Statement shoes always complete the bridal look, and they can certainly add the perfect touch of bling to your wedding day. Just look at those Jimmy Choos! Those babies could make Cinderella jealous.

For a bride not keen on cashing out for Mr Jimmy, fear not, because we’ve found 9 statement shoes that are totally affordable.

Bridal Gown

The level of detail that goes into a wedding dress always astounds us, so you can imagine how hard we fell when we found these jewelled beauties. You’ll be sure to sparkle the night away with a gorgeous gown like these.

 

Headpieces

What better way to feel like a princess than with a stunning headpiece. We think a gorgeous crown is the ultimate way to bling it up.

Our latest campaign shoot of our new collection of headpieces released on the runway @thebridalbazaar ✨ A flower crown made not from fresh flowers but purple crystals from Swarovski, metal leaves and flowers set in rhodium so they do not tarnish. Rhodium gives a stunning colour to the piece similar to white gold, for a high end finish. A modern and feminine choice, with subtle sparkle. 🌸 Designed and handcrafted in Sydney under the creation direction of Amy Leigh Assaad.

The humble 'side piece' will never go out of fashion…..it suits so many bridal looks…. a pretty hair adornment 'ties your look altogether and looks amazing in your photos and cinema'………nothing finishes off your bridal look like a headpiece and earrings does….

Cake

If you thought this would be the one list where we didn’t talk about cake, then boy were you wrong. Of course, we’re going to bring up cake! With gold leaf and sugar crystals, you can create a showstopper cake that is all bling and so wonderfully fabulous that you’ll be reluctant to cut into it (but obviously, you will, because duh, cake).
