Make memories of the day special by giving a handmade gift to each guest, distributing sparklers and having a finale of fireworks.
The pomander ball, also known as the kissing ball, first became common during the Middle Ages and was usually perfumed. It makes a fun alternative to a bouquet for your bridesmaids and flower girls.
With your invitation, enclose a small bag of metallic confetti and suggest guests bring the bags to throw after your ceremony.
Complete your bridesmaids’ ensembles by subtly using glittery eye makeup, and ice-silver or sorbet shades of nail polish.
Add an ethereal glow with subtle touches of shimmer: add glitter and sequins to water-filled glass containers, or scatter them atop linens with a soft sheen. Spray-painted river stones also work well.
Establish a colour theme of metallic on pastel-toned paper with the save=the-dates, and carry it through to invitations and menus.
