So I”m not a blingy girl. My wedding decor is rustic, green and brown with some flaming burnt orange (ok, I do like colour), but nothing sparkles. Normally I would not mind. No one would ever expect me to to a have anything sparkly going on at my wedding. I wear Bog boots, have freckles and a pony tail. I wear denim and silver (ok, white gold) but I do not own anything flashy (my 2012 opalescent green SUV when it isn’t covered in mud?). But I have recently discovered that I have serious bling envy. I love looking at the DIY projects, and I am DIYing the majority of my decor so it isn’t DIY I crave..it’s glitter. I have a growing need to sprinkle glitter on something and make it sparkly. When I admitted this to my children who are long past the glitter stage they asked me if I was ill and reminded me how I banned glitter glue from the house about 10 years ago. My husband to be asked me if that included body glitter (do they ever grow up?). Bees, help me. How can I add a little glitter to my burlap and barnboard wedding which I love without having to give in to my H2B’s suggestion of body glitter?

Could you make little glittery bird shaped sticks and stick them into pots or something? I have this picture in my head, but I can’t find a pic of it 🙁

I’m buying flats and making them glittery! Maybe you could do something similar? There’s a few posts about it in the DIY section. 🙂

I glittered some wine glasses to give to my BMs at the wedding (they can use them at the reception and then take them home)
that seemed to help my need for glitter! Also glitter heels 🙂
I am doing things with burlap, lace, and pearls, so I understand the no-bling decor.

I may have a solution….thanks for the guidance. The evening before we are having a BBQ (thrown for us by the inn) and I’m thinking some sparkly votives on the tables, glittery wineglasses for the wedding party and some dragonflies might just help me deal with my need for sparkle. The sparkly stuff for the evening event on Friday and the rustic for the wedding. Whew. All is well again. lol.

I saw another post on the hive from a bee who bought wooden numbers to use as table numbers and she then covered them in glitter, I think it would be so pretty!
