There are so many ways to bring in a bit of bling into your wedding day, like this inspiration that’ll have you covered from head to toe!

Turn your wedding cake into a showstopper with careful addition of crystals and rhinestones. Each tier of this seven-layer cake was decorated with a Swarovski crystal belt, and topped with a blinged out initial. Not to be outdoone, the base completes the vintage glam look without being over the top. Photo: Renee Sprink, Cake: Ashley Cakes

Princess Kate was stunning in her bridal tiara, of course. Designed by Cartier, it consists of 739 brilliant-cut diamonds and 149 baguette-cut diamonds. If you would like a touch of bling on top but can’t spring for heirloom halo tiaras, other options include headbands, hair clips or rhinestone-trimmed veils. Photo: Fiona Hanson for Reuters
