Glitter is great, but it’s a bit too messy for lots of people. That’s where sequins come in. They’re the big girl version of glitter which allows you to feel womanly and sophisticated. They stand out more and won’t stick to you for 2 weeks after your big day in the most random of places. Sequins are little disks of colored plastic and shine brilliantly in the light and because they are sewn into the fabric instead of glued on, like glitter, they last longer and can be re-used for many other events besides your wedding. 2015 brings with it sequins to add sparkle, glitz, or glam to your special day. You can use sequins all throughout your decorations or use them sparingly to add just a touch of sparkle. There are many ways to incorporate sequins into your decor; use sequin tablecloths topped with magnolia garland and vases of peonies, roses, and hydrangeas or just adding sequin placemats on plain white table cloth. For touches of sparkle, sequins can be dropped into vases and filled with water carrying peonies, roses, and sweet pea to be centerpieces for guest tables. The bride can also wear sequins on her dress for that 1920’s style wedding complete with a sequin headband with peonies and hydrangeas if desired. Bridesmaids’ dresses are also a good way to incorporate sequins or even on the bridal bouquet by wrapping it with sequin fabric. Cakes can also be decorated to look like they have sequins scattered all over and at the end of the ceremony, your guests can, instead of throwing rice; they can throw big disks of sequins. However you choose to add sparkle to your day, sequins are definitely a good way to do so.
