Great big Indian weddings include all things vibrant. However, color is not the only way to make a statement. A spectacular way to take your wedding up a notch is to throw in some glitter. From extravagant celebrations to intimate affairs, glitter can lend a magical yet modern feel to an event. And for brides who love bling, there are countless ways to incorporate glistening details into your functions. Get ready with your sunglasses; you are about to be dazzled!

Who doesn’t want to feel like a princess on their wedding day? Shine like the showstopper you are in a fabulous shimmering lehenga. Pick a lighter hue for a summer or day event; glittering fall colors will wow for an evening or winter wedding.
