sequins and party streamers

Glittering wedding

Don’t be ashamed if you have a love for sequins – they’ve got some awesome history behind them! Evidence exists that gold sequins were being used as decoration on clothing in the Indus Valley as early as 2500BC, during the Kot Diji era.

This adorable real wedding was featured on 100 Layer Cake, photographed by Ellie Grover, took place at The Dana Powers Barn in Nipomo, California, and in case you’re wondering where that stunning bridal gown was from – it’s the one and only Monique Lhuillier. 

For the sequin board: bouquet, sequin clutch, wedding invitations, cake, wedding dress, napkin ribbons.
