Wedding Dress Wednesday :: Shimmery Fabrics

The new year is just around the corner. Planning your wedding around a specific holiday can be a unique way to showcase your style and personality.  It also allows your guests to take off less vacation days. Wee!

This weeks’ collection feature six dresses that have shimmery fabrics that resemble metallic tones, perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebration. What is better than starting off the new year than partying with the ones you love?

shimmery fabrics

Heart of Gold: Wrapped bodice fits the torso then flares from the hips. Splashes of beading and embroidery outline the gold taffeta dress. {Mia Solano; $900}

Glimmer of Hope: Luxurious and shimmery silk charmeuse freely flows down the length of the body. The deep v-neckline and halter strap meet with an ornate brooch. {Jenny Packham; $3000+}

Champagne Toast: The mermaid silhouette embraces the body with tulle and lace overlay. Delicate lace details adorn the gown. {Raylia; $800}

Gleaming Gown: Silver satin shimmers from under the intricate embroidery. A basque waist elongates the torso creating a slimmer body. {Christina Wu; $700}

Metallic Bonding: Sleek and glamorous are two words that describe this satin gown. A single strap attaches to the dress with a dazzling brooch. The bodice features assymetrical ruching. {Maggie Sottero; $800}

Heavy Metal: Lustrous silk shantung gives off a soft glow. Strapless ballgown with pickups in back of the skirt. Complimentary sash twists into a bow at the waist.  {Tara Keely; $1300}


These gowns are just a few that will help ring in the new year.


Love the metallic look on some of the dresses. I am not a fan of taffeta, but do enjoy the sheen.
