3 ways to be a bring your bling to the wedding!

Are you a bling bling bride? Or just looking for that little touch of sparkle for your wedding outfit? From Swarovski to diamonds, any set of clear crystal accessories can add that much needed hint of elegance and glamour to your big day. Going after the "bling" can become quite pricey if you are on a budget, however if you look at the right places, they may only be $10 (or $1000000 if you want!).

With so many "bling" accessories out there, it can become an impossible task to choose ones which are subtle enough yet still expressive at the same time; too much bling may come off as tacky to some (but still remember, it’s your day, if you love it, go for it Miss Sunshine!). Need some inspiration? Have a look down below!

To carry or not to carry? It’s up to you, but your maid of honour would probably end up holding your clutch most of the time anyway! However, if you find that you do need one (and some of us do like having our essentials with us 24/7), whether you want the full bling diamante look or just that little something something, the choices are endless!

The brand Tom Ford says it all for lavishness, and their Crystal Ring Clutch is nothing short of that. If you’re after something a little more floral and subtle, or you’re on a tighter budget, Forever New’s Enchanted Sparkle clutch is one you can consider. For those that want a statement piece, then the Dolce and Gabbana multi floral clutch will definitely be a stand out (and perfect if you’re into florals!). 

Bling it on!

If Camellias are your favs or the main flowers at your wedding, who could go past Coco Chanel and her eternal love for these gorgeous flowers? Chanel's Camellia diamond necklace is just simply stunning.

Not into classical designs? Alexander McQueen’s Swarovski Choker is definitely one for those who are looking for something beautiful yet strikingly distinguished. Also, Noor Fares wing shaped diamond and mother-of-pearl earrings are actually made using an Ancient Egyptian technique, how cool!

A pair of crystal embellished shoes can do no wrong! Even if they might be covered by your long bridal gown, if someone sees a peek, you want these babies to sparkle in their eyes wouldn’t you? As Mr. Louboutin says (and yes how could we miss the red soles, the stunning pair in the top left is by him), “a woman carries her clothes, but the shoe carries the woman.”   Miss bride-to-be, we might as well go all the way with your shoes!

If you can strut it in high heels, the choices are endless. Sergio Rossi’s platform sandals are perfect if you’re after the extra height or that white satin look to match with your gown. Want something a little bit more distinguished? Don’t be afraid to go black; check out how classy those Giorgio Armani Swarovski pumps look!

If you’re after something a bit more comfortable, then shorter block heels may be more suitable; Rene Caovilla’s crystal-embellished silver sandals are just as elegant as many higher heeled shoes.

Let’s face it, most of us were probably already in love with diamonds and crystals before reading this! Anyway, good luck choosing! There’s no need to overly stress, cherish and enjoy all the shopping you have to do for your big day, it’s your chance to splurge!
