“Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.” ― Marilyn Monroe
Ladies and gentlemen, this bride needs a formal introduction! Here comes the Glam Bride!
It is a tough race, but this look is one of my favourites – if not for the grandeur of it all, but simply for the impeccable attention to detail which is found somewhere between timeless classic and vintage chic. Why use a taxi when you can use a stretch limo or even a vintage car for transportation to and from the venue? Why use basic white when you can add some glitter, sequins or gold? Every detail from the ceiling to the door knobs must be considered when it comes to the overall look and feel of this theme! There is nothing basic about having a Glam wedding and this includes the leading man and the bridal party. For this type of wedding you want to think in terms of “the bigger the better” and “more is more!”
The best benefit of this bridal look is being able to play it up with your fabric selection. The silhouette of the dress should really cater to your personality and body size as with any bridal look. If you prefer a more classic look, you could pick a lace with cording or even beaded chiffon. I have noticed more and more that Hollywood red carpet haute couture has been translating into bridal looks over the last few seasons which is so perfectly unique not to mention; daring, fashion forward and of course, glamorous! For your hair, you should have the most ornate accessory incorporated into it whether it is in a perfectly placed up-do or falling down onto your shoulders. When it comes to accessorizing, you can miss-match or pair them all together. Just remember that the shoes should sparkle as much as the ring itself.
Have you considered a sequined back drop for your ceremony? What about as a table cloth for your cake or display table? Why roll out the red when you choose something flashy like a sequined aisle runner. Feel free to browse some options available at TÉLIO here.
