With the season of sparkle upon us, what better time to write a blog post about weddings styled for full on glitz and glamour! Black tie weddings can produce some of the most visually spectacular affairs. Not only does it up the game for venue decor and see guests getting even more glammed up than usual, but is there anything more handsome than a man in a tux *swoon*
While researching this post and the inspiration around for black tie weddings we have come across a whole heap of ideas. However, for this post we are going to feature what we believe to be the most glamorous and opulent of options.
Black or navy blue are stunning bases for a black tie wedding and when choosing gowns for your bridesmaids, you can go as traditional or as modern and sexy as you dare. Not only will these gowns look incredible for your wedding day, but your bridesmaids will also be left with a gorgeous LBD for future occasions … Christmas party coming up?!
Now remember we are going full out in this post so what better to pair with black or navy than gold. And of course, gold is always better when it sparkles! There are some absolutely breath taking options when it comes to black tie wedding venue decor and sequin table runners seem to be huge this season. This is the perfect occasion to indulge in all the luxury you can afford and done carefully, black tie can look a lot more expensive than it actually is!
With all the rich, dark colours at play with your black tie wedding, the bride, in a striking white wedding dress will stand out even more. We offer a huge range of beautiful wedding dresses in our bridal shop Birmingham, from some absolutely incredible designers.
