The SA Weddings team is made up of magpies – we’re in love with everything with a little 'shine'! So we decided to compile 5 of our favourite glitter-inspired wedding ideas to help find the wedding looks that dazzle this summer!

For a bit of extra sparkle on a work day, we thought you'd appreciate a few inspiration ideas for a glitter and gold themed wedding. This is by no means a cheap thrills-extravaganza but offers some chic ways to add a little girly glam to your special day. We promise your wedding doesn't have to fall on New Years to be a festive affair and a little glitter or confetti goes along way...

Wedding Stationery

Give your guests a hint of the golden celebration that's still to come with a glittered invitation that really shines. This can also give them an insight into what to expect and what to wear of course!
