Nothing says celebration like glitter, so what better place to wear it than on your wedding day — AKA the biggest party of your life? The trick to make it grown-up and not childish is to pick sophisticated shapes and shades. Think structured clutches and sleek heels and stick to gold, silver, bronze and blush confetti.

1. The Glitter-Strap Sandal
For the ultra-girly bride that doesn't want to go metallic, blush is a great option. This is a shoe for super feminine dresses that feature lace, beaded, or floral appliqués. Best of all, the classic double strap design makes a pink shoe with a glitter toe wearable. "Clara" Strappy Heeled Sandal, $47.48, Missguided

2. Art-Deco Clutch
The guide to keeping glitter modern — pair it with angular neutrals. Also sticking to structured classic shapes, like this rectangle clutch, keeps it contemporary while still giving a nod to the Gatsby era. Wear it to your Deco-inspired wedding or with a beaded flapper dress for your rehearsal dinner. Rectangular Box Minaudière, $295, Haltston Heritage

3. Striped Clutch
Consider this the striped tee-shirt of party clutches — classic, but still trendy. Pairing a pearlescent nude with gold confetti sparkles makes it formal-affair ready. It even has a mirror inside to check your lipstick after your first smooch as man and wife. "Jean" striped clutch, $1,195, Edie Parker

4. The Glitter Heel
These cage heels are perfect for a bride that wants a little more drama. The platform gives it a '70s feel, while the gold lamé makes it princess appropriate. These would complement a chic satin slip dress or a big, tulle ball gown. Collar Glitter Lamé Platform Sandals, $1,025, Jimmy Choo available at Saks Fifth Avenue

5. The Evening Shoe
A strappy silver sandal with soft glitter detail is the perfect way to try the trend. The delicate straps and stiletto heel make it a great evening shoe and its simple design makes it versatile so it goes with everything. "Duchess2" Evening Sandal, $130, Ivanka Trump available at Macy's
