So when I talked about our colors, a lot of you were wondering how I would incorporate the gold glitter into our otherwise soft-colored color palette.

Well, at first, I didn’t know! I just really love glitter, so I wanted to incorporate it in some way. Then, I started looking specifically for weddings that had the same color scheme and I happened to come across a couple gems, which gave me a better feel for how we could incorporate glitter without getting it all over our guests (a point that Mr. Otter made early on, because he isn’t a huge glitter fan like me!).

The first idea (and probably my favorite, thus far) was to incorporate it in some of our detail shots. I love this shot that clearly features the flowers, but uses gold glitter fabric as the backdrop. And—points for no glitter on guests!

The second idea I found was from the same wedding—incorporating the glitter into the signage! While I haven’t quite determined what kind of signage we’re going to need, I do know that we’re going to be featuring photos of those who have passed and can’t be with us, so perhaps a gold glitter heart could accent the photos on that table.

My last idea would be a bit of a DIY project. Have you ever heard of the “mermaid manicure”? Take the concept of the mermaid manicure accent nail (a little glitter on the end of the nail—just a small sprinkle) and apply it to these beautiful gold table numbers! This way I incorporate the gold in a very subtle way that also won’t get all over our guests.

What do you think? Out of these options, which way would be the best to incorporate the gold glitter without going overboard?

    @Mrs. Pony: That’s what MOH Cubbie says, too! She thinks we should do all of them and I must say, I’m starting to agree…. GLITTER FOR OTTER! :)

    I’m a glitter girl too, and I definitely would love to add glitter accents throughout.

    What about shoes? For St. Patty’s Day this past year I bought $10 heels from Goodwill, painted them green as a base, and then glittered them Kelly green. They were seriously cute!
