Planning the wedding of your dreams, but trying to stick to a budget? How can you make your day unique and perfect without going into debt? Plan a rhinestone wedding adding dazzling crystals to everything from your dress, shoes to invitations and cake topper. There are many things you can do yourself, like gluing rhinestones to your wedding dress, to save yourself money.
Rhinestone Wedding Dress and Shoes
When planning a rhinestone wedding, the first place to start is your wedding dress. You can buy a plain simple dress for a few hundred dollars. Whereas, a crystal encrusted wedding dress will cost you at least $1000.00. Even factoring in the cost of rhinestones, you will still save yourself a bundle by embellishing it yourself. It’s easy to glue rhinestones to a wedding dress and you can read all about gluing rhinestones to dresses here.
Another place to save money is to rhinestone your shoes. Why spend a lot of money on an expensive pair of shoes? Once again, buy yourself a plain pair and embellish them with rhinestones yourself. Gluing rhinestones to shoes is similar to gluing rhinestones to your dress. Find some tips for gluing rhinestones to shoes here.
Many brides will get a manicure for their wedding day. While a French Manicure is pretty, you can dazzle by adding rhinestones to your nails. And you don’t need a professional nail technician to add rhinestones to your nails. Read how to use rhinestones on nails here.
Other ideas for a rhinestone wedding
Invitations, menus and seating cards are other places you can add rhinestones. Small size rhinestones here or there add that extra special touch.
The wedding cake is the centerpiece at the reception. Certainly, you can make your cake even more impressive with a sparkly cake topper. Search the internet to find a free downloadable template you like. Cut one out of card stock with scissors or an X-Acto knife. Then glue small rhinestones to the topper.
Toasting glasses, wedding favors or table centerpieces can also be embellished with rhinestones. A votive candle holder covered with rhinestones makes a nice favor. So does a votive holder with lace and rhinestones. Or place the votive holder with a candle in the center of the table and add a ring of flowers to use for centerpieces.
These are just a few of the ways you can use crystals to plan a rhinestone wedding. Rhinestones are so very versatile and can be glued to so many surfaces. Be creative and see what other ideas you can come up with to make the wedding of your dreams.
