Planning a Glam Wedding Theme

First, tips for organizing an ultra glamorous wedding:

Venue Glitz

Site at upscale hotels, estate venues, art galleries and landmarks versus plain banquet halls to inspire grandeur.

Luxe Decor

Skip minimalism – go lavish with overflowing floral displays on gilded stands, shimmering chandeliers, carved ice sculptures, overflowing champagne fountains, exotic live entertainers, enormous cakes.

Opulent Palette

Metallics like gold, silver and bronze take center stage along with accents of rich crimson, deep purples, emerald, sapphire, gunmetal, and black. Skip pastels.

Refined Catering

Plan multicourse gourmet menus with decadent ingredients like truffles, caviar, lobster, wagyu beef, and top tier liquors presented with artful flair.

Glamorous Wardrobes

For attire, think haute couture ballgowns, hand-beaded gowns, debonair tuxedos, tall hats, elbow-length gloves, silk bowties, and wearing real vintage Hollywood glamor.

Luxe Photography

Select dramatic photographers skilled in shooting with flair using moody lighting, provocative poses, and editing with a rich cinematic style.

Blinged-Out DIY Bridal Accessories

Go big or go home for your wedding day sparkle:

Crystal Veils and Headpieces

Cover veils, floral crowns, hair combs, and fascinators in mega-watt rhinestone and crystal elements. Let them dramatically catch the light.

Glittery Fabrics

Add hand-glued crystals, sequins, caviar beads, paillettes and iridescent glitter onto bridal gowns, shoes, and accessories using fabric glue.

Metallic Florals

Spray paint leaves and petals metallic gold or silver for opulent bouquets and arrangements lightyears beyond plain real blooms.

Chunky Jewels

Accent the neckline, waist, or headpiece with substantial statement jewels like giant gemstone pendants, cuffs, or hair brooches.

Diamante Details

Apply Swarovski flatback crystals to your ring pillow, garter, toasting flutes, cake server and knife handles and other wedding day items.

Glitzy Clutches

Cover basic clutches in a mosaic of rhinestones, spikes, studs, or overlapping glam materials like feathers, silks, cording, fringing, etc.

Bling Touches for the Wedding Party

Help the whole crew shimmer and shine:

Sequin Accents

Use fabric glue to outline lapels, bow ties, cuffs, waistbands, straps, and other areas of attire with light catching sequins.

Metallic Ties and Pocket Squares

Choose iridescent or patterned metallic fabric for groomsmen ties and pocket squares to glam up suits.

Monogrammed Buttons

Replace plain jacket buttons with initialed metallic buttons for a subtle glitzy twist. Use roman numerals for extra sophistication.

Geometric Studs

Secure basic shirting for guys with hardlined gold and silver stud sets that edge up the look. Leave top buttons undone to showcase.

Crystal Brooches

Pin ornate rhinestone brooches onto hat brims, lapels, sashes, belts, shoes – anywhere needing that extra dose of 5th Avenue sparkle.

Cuff Links and Tie Clips

Replace plain cuff links and tie clips with jeweled, initialed, vintage, and otherwise highly decorative versions.

Blingy DIY Signs and Decor

Amp up the atmosphere through lavish signage and decor choices:

Gilded Frames

Display signs, table numbers, menus, ceremony programs etc. within opulent antiqued gold and silver ornate picture frames for mega luxe vibes.

Marquee Letters

Outline sign lettering in continuous mini light strings or crystal rhinestone strips so names dazzlingly pop.


Line table runners, backdrop piping, chair ties, aisle markers, cocktail bars, head tables, sweetheart tables and other areas with loads of shimmering metallic fringe.

Bejeweled Vases

Incorporate hand-decorated vases and tea light holders encrusted in a mosaic of gems and jewels as part of floral centerpieces and decor.

Ornate Lighting

Rent lighting fixtures with the most extravagantly intricate wrought iron, cascading crystal, and baroque gold finishes money can buy.

Charger Bling

Dazzle placesettings by topping charger plates with rhinestone and bead-encrusted charger overlays.

Don’t hold back in letting your diva side run free with all that glitters. Handcraft every last detail at maximum decadence!
