We know you want to be the star of the show on your wedding day, but that doesn't mean your bridesmaids can't shine a little, too. A little or a lot of metallic in their ensemble can give your girls an eye-catching look that gives your big day a more vibrant, effervescent feel. Whether you want just a little shine or a whole lot of glitz, we've got six ideas for giving your 'maids the shine the sparkle they deserve. 1. Dresses with bling. Can't picture your bridesmaids decked in all-over sequins? You can still pick dresses that shine, just opt for gowns with scattered rhinestones on the skirt or a sparkly bodice. It's eye-catching without being overwhelming. via Lover.ly Photo by Jema Keech on Wedding Chicks via Lover.ly 2. Glittery shoes. Shoes that shine aren't just for the bride! If your girls are donning short dresses, let them wear heels or flats that really make a statement. Glittery pumps will do the trick, but you could opt for a metallic that's a little more subtle. via Lover.ly Photo by Matt Reed Photography on Polka Dot Bride via Lover.ly 3. A slim belt. For a modern, understated dose of metallics, have your bridesmaids finish off their look with a thin belt. The best part? You can find one that works with almost any dress. via Lover.ly Photo by Trent Bailey Photography on Snippet & Ink via Lover.ly 4. A statement necklace.

Simple dresses and swept-up hairstyles almost require a headpiece. This gives you the perfect chance to let your bridesmaids glow. A headband or clip with a few gems and jewels will pull the look together. via Lover.ly Photo by Jasmine Star Photography on Grey Likes Weddings via Lover.ly 6. All-over sequins.
