When it comes to wedding dresses, it can sometimes feel intimidating to tackle sparkle—every bride wants to shine throughout her day, but how much is too much? Luckily for all of our gorgeous brides-to-be, Anomalie has perfected everything from a more bold sequin tulle to the oh-so subtle sparkly look that gives even the most conservative bride the shimmery gown they’ve always dreamed of! Check out the different ways you can add sparkle and shine in order to create a show-stopping, custom look for your big day!

Add Dimension

If you’re going for a bohemian look and a touch of sparkle, try adding a layer of glitter tulle to create depth and dimension in the skirt of your dress. A sparkle fabric may seem too over the top on its own, but when paired with a simple lace pattern and layers of tulle, it gives your gown some character and charm. Don’t let the idea of selecting your fabrics seem daunting! You’ll receive fabric swatches, as well as guidance from your personal stylist to help walk you through the selection process.

Add Detail

Our last (and perhaps most obvious) piece of advice is to use shimmering fabrics to create detail in your gown. Glimpses of sequined fabric in unexpected places, such as the bodice or veil, will guarantee that your wedding look is 100% your own. Brainstorm with your personal stylist to think of some unique ways to make sure you shine on your big day!

Using the sparkle tulle to make another detail pop is another use for the glittery fabric. Just look at how the second layer of shimmer tulle in Chelsea’s dress made the entire starry look come together!

Want Beading, but on a budget?

Looking to add a bit of sparkle to your wedding dress, but don’t want to pay the added cost that comes with hand-beading? Consider adding a layer of shimmer tulle or a sequined underlayer on the bodice. Not only will it give you the extra brilliance you’re looking for, but it’s also one of the hottest dress trends for 2018 and 2019 weddings alike.

Think Beyond Your Dress

Sparkle tulle doesn’t have to be used just for your dress! Don’t forget about your accessories. Think cape, veil, or a jacket. Real bride, Isabelle, designed a sophisticated crepe gown and added a touch of glam by using sparkle tulle with her cape.
