Every bride sparkles on her wedding day — it’s a proven fact. Whether you’re wearing a dress full of diamonds or covered in lace, that bridal essence comes not from the dress, but from the bride herself. However, if you are looking to add a certain shine to your big day, ditch the crystals and the beading and look instead to metallic wedding gowns to glow up your look. Metallics, which come in all shapes, sizes and fabrics, can either cover the entire dress or simply be an added accent, it’s all up to you. For years, metallics and sequins were relegated to New Years Eve dresses, but some of our favorite designers have begun to incorporate this glitz and glam into bridal couture, and they’ve managed to take something seen as flashy and over-the-top and make it subtle and exquisitely bridal.
We’ve already seen the trend of metallic dresses appear in the bridal world through the rise in metallic bridesmaids dresses, but why should the bridesmaids have all the fun? If you’re looking for the perfect amount of pizazz for your gown, and you feel diamonds are just too classic for your taste, look into sequined or metallic fabric to spice things up. We can guarantee that with the options out there, you be the quintessence of bridal beauty, with a new, fun twist.
