When you finally find the perfect wedding dress but there’s just one thing missing — a little sparkle — what can you do? Add your own!
Today we’re showing you how to add sparkle to a wedding dress through a few easy, affordable options to really make it your own.
From bridal dress sashes to accents for your shoulders, you’ll be amazed how simply adding a little bling to a wedding dress will make it more personal.
7 Easy Ways to Add Sparkle to Wedding Dresses
1. Add a Sparkly Wedding Dress Sash
The easiest way to add bling to your bridal day look? With a sash! A dress sash can be worn with sparkly rhinestones, crystals, a mix of gemstones and pearls, lace with tiny crystal beads, or anything you’d like to add a shimmery, sparkly embellishment.
There are various places to buy sparkle wedding dress sashes on the web. One of my favorite places to shop is TessaKim, who has made a name for herself in the world of bespoke veils, hair accessories, and bridal accessories. One of my favorite pieces — her bridal hair vine/dress belt combination — is a fan-favorite. You can wear this as a hair vine or a bridal dress sash so you can decide for yourself how to add sparkle to a wedding dress or hairstyle! :) You can even mix it up: wear a veil and the sparkly dress sash during the ceremony, then wear the sash as a hair vine for the reception and remove the veil.
