As the Queen of Bling, I have created and designed many gowns that shimmer and sparkle and catch the eyes of everyone around. In my opinion, there is no better day to jazz up your outfit than on your wedding day. It’s a huge celebration and nothing says “celebrate” like some bling! Here are a few of my favorite ways to add some shine to your wedding gown.
1.) Crystals of course! Whether it is big or small crystals, crystals just around the neckline or covering the entire corset, crystals are a stellar way to add some eye-catching shine to your wedding dress. To me, crystals convey a sense of opulence and grandeur similar to royalty, so for me they will always be welcome on a big luxurious ball gown (like my classic Pnina Tornai ball gown that is always a “Cinderella” bride’s dream come true)! They also go great on sleek gowns like those in my Fragile Collection.
2.) Water crystals! Prominently featured in my Wind Upon Water Collection, water crystals are these translucent little gems that add the most beautiful and ethereal look to any gown they are added to. To me these are wonderful because they are a much more subtle option than the traditional crystals. What they do very well is make any intricate design really pop! Not to mention they are so mesmerizing to look at.
3.) Beaded embellishments/Glitter embossing! This option is amazing for all-over shimmer or even brides looking for a less expensive option. You can still shine bright with these options and they glow beautifully under the light. I have designed plenty of gowns using this type of shimmer that can still fit within your budget in my LOVE by Pnina Tornai Collections. They are just as exquisite as my couture creations and are affordable as well!
4.) Can’t forget pearls! Pearls are the elegant woman’s bling. Not saying that all the other options are not as well, but there is just something about pearls that make them the pinnacle of refinement. They are gorgeous in any quantity on a gown and they are best suited for embellishing a corset. Just check out the ball gown from my Wind Upon Water Collection with a pearl corset that is to die for!
Your wedding day is a day for you to truly shine like the gem you are. As the Queen of Bling, rest assured that when wearing one of my gowns you are getting the highest quality and that my gowns will shine in the best way possible.
