You know we’re all for an alternative look on your Big Day, and a metallic wedding dress could definitely be the one for you. Because, let’s face it, shimmering your way down the aisle? It’s a big yes from us. Straying away from a traditional white wedding dress can be daunting, but perhaps our roundup will leave you feeling a little (or a lot) more confident in your decision. Remember, it’s all about you and what you’re comfortable in. And quite frankly, we haven’t seen a look that hasn’t made our face transform into the heart eyes emoji. So, get those pinning fingers at the ready! 

Metallic wedding dress inspiration 


Let’s begin with a banger. A silver wedding dress? Trust us, we’re about to give you all kinds of ideas. Firstly, Jess caused an absolute STORM over on our Instagram when we showcased her and this incredible number. The slit, the V-neck, the sparkling sequins, it just works. Or how about Kate? Her iridescent wedding dress is leaving us feeling as though we’re looking straight into the galaxy. Quite frankly, they’re both absolute show-stoppers, and we can’t decide which one we love more. Hmm… is two dresses overkill on your wedding day? Nah…


Now, let us take you on a journey. A Gold wedding dress journey to be exact. If you’re in need of a little more convincing in terms of choosing an alternative gown, then look no further than Lisa. Lisa makes us want to wear a gold wedding dress every single day of our life. We’re pretty certain if Lisa were in government, gold wedding dresses would become mandatory wear, because it looks so damn good. Lisa looks fabulous. Be more Lisa. Seriously though, we can’t get enough of this bold look, and it’s testament to the fact you should follow your fashion instincts! 


We’re pretty certain the lyrics “now why’d you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?” Was written about sparkly wedding dresses and Oxana. This gorgeous bride made her way down the aisle in a celestial gown and looked like utter perfection. It’s giving us all those whimsical vibes and we’re seriously here for it. Paired with a bridal crown and a bouquet fit for a fairytale Princess, you’re most certainly good to go. 


Whether you’re planning on walking down the aisle in your metallic wedding dress, or saving it for the reception, we’ll be applauding you the entire way. We absolutely adore Jess in her pink sequin gown (complete with matching pink hair), for her and King’s micro wedding. Or how about a more casual number? The perfect option if you’re looking for something a little more low-key, but with a lot of style. 

Could a sparkling wedding dress be for you?
