It sparkles!

There is nothing more elegant than sparkle for an evening wedding, ok let me rephrase that, sparkle done properly. Romance is illuminated by light, crystal, diamonds and gems which is why these elements are an excellent theme design for your evening wedding. Paired with any color, rhinestones, diamonds and crystals set the mood for your romantic wedding design. We've gathered some examples of how you can use rhinestone and crystal accents as the backdrop for your decor.

First pay close attention to the detailing of your table centerpieces. By using reflection in the form of mirrors or glass, pair crystal or cut glass candleholders with silver or gold accents to reflect light at each table. Featured above, is an example from Plum Party. A pack of two retails for $36.

Rhinestones can also be featured in your cake and table setting. The cake featured to the right, comes from Creme de la Creme in Seattle, WA. Crystal accents adorn the base of the cake. The rhinestone motif is also carried out in the frosting of the cake itself - and its all fully edible. Rhinestone ribbons in packs of 50 are also available for various decorative accents at Target. Target also carries rhinestone cake toppers in any letter or number.

The rhinestone and jeweled motif also transfers beautifully to bridal style and accessories. Featured below are examples of small accent pieces that adorn bridal gowns. (Left: BCBG gown available at Nordstrom; Top Right: Alfred Angelo) Also note the rhinestone cuff detailing the bridal bouquet.

Beautiful accessories for the bride are also available in many retail outlets that are adorned with tasteful touches of rhinestones. Choose accessories like lipstick cases, chandelier earrings, cuff bracelets, shoes, and clutches to accent your jeweled theme.

Even the wedding favors or bridal party gifts can reflection the overall theme. For instance, the beautiful and classic key chain from Swarovski makes an excellent gift.

As with any theme for your wedding, the important thing to remember is that even the smallest details should be addressed. A successful design is executed when everything from the invitations to the decor to the accessories carries out the same theme. Not only does it bring continuity to your design, but it actually makes it easier to shop and create the decor because you'll have a clear focus on what you are purchasing.
