Metallic shoes, handbags and other accessories are fashion trends that have continued to grow in popularity in recent years. Metallics are a great way to add glamour to your wardrobe and the metallic trend is also common for weddings too. Though you probably don't want to walk down the aisle in an allover gold metallic gown, you can definitely use metallics to add some glitz to your wedding day.
Here are some ideas for infusing metallics into your wedding.
Bridesmaids dresses - For an evening wedding, silver bridesmaids dresses are a fantastic choice. The fabric shouldn't be blinding, but it can have some shine to it. You can also choose light colored dresses with metallic beading or a silver lace overlay. If silver or gold dresses are too shiny for your taste, ask your bridesmaids to wear metallic strappy sandals along with black dresses for a very classy look.
Bridal shoes - Instead of white wedding shoes, brides are choosing silver and gold pumps, sandals and flats. You can select glossy metallic patent leather slingback pumps, silver sequined flats, or fancy thong sandals embellished with metallic adornments.
Handbags - A shiny silver metallic clutch or a gold sequined evening bag are wonderful choices for your wedding reception. Most every wedding shop, department store and local boutique offers a collection of shimmery bags that are fitting for the occasion. Another popular trend is eco-friendly bags made of recycled material, such as the silver pull-tab bags that are available from ecoist.com.
Decorations - Many couples are planning black and white weddings that are complemented by silver and crystal decorations. Black and white weddings are very elegant and classy. The shine from silver and crystal are perfect to complete the look. Decorate your wedding reception facility with bold silver and crystal centerpieces. An inexpensive option is filling a large crystal bowl with silver mirrored Christmas ball ornaments. The light reflecting off the balls through the crystal looks amazing.
