It’s been a few weeks since we’ve done a roundup of favorite things, and since it’s still winter 😡😡😡, and our luster for life is waning, we thought we’d talk about sparkle. Because sparkle just makes us happy. (Really, have you taken a peek at our feed lately? Sparkle alllllllways gets the likes). And with engagement season long gone, we’re missing our daily quota of shiny, glittering things.
Oh! And the sparkly something that we’re talking about? Dresses. Sparkly dresses just have a way of making our hearts burst, and it’s not very often that you can step out in an over-the-top sparkle dress and not get lots of ‘extra much?’ stares. So, on your wedding day, we say let you inner Meghan Markle sparkle and feel damn good about it.

Now, truthfully, not every bridal designer has sparkle woven into their designer DNA - but the ones who do, do it BIG. We’re talking top-to-bottom sparkle, head-to-toe glimmer, and all-over gorgeousness. From Anna Campbell to BERTA, Chosen by One Day to Pnina Tornai, you’ve seen all these names pop up on our Insta feed, and you can’t help but feel like the dresses are speaking to your soul. Right?
Of course, ethereal, boho gowns and minimalist silhouettes have an arresting appeal about them, but a sparkly situation can’t be matched. And it doesn’t even have to be sparkle everywhere, either (although, that’s our favorite application - sparkle tulle might have been the greatest thing ever invented in the modern bridal world), it can be sparkle done exceptionally well on particular parts of the dress. Be it the cap sleeves, the plunging neckline, or an ombre, cascading effect all over the skirt. ☝️

In any case, we’ve gone through our Insta grid, and scoured our sparkle memories over the last 6 or so months, to bring you snapshots of some of the sparkliest and most spectacular gowns ever. They’re all mesmerizing. ✨
If you’re into the look(s), then definitely start following some of these designers, and don’t forget, Pronovias' latest launch, the Cruise Collection, is all about sparkle - sooo don’t be shy about jumping back on that post. We wouldn’t blame you!
