You make an overlay of the clothing, either with flexis or a copy of the mesh and texture it with a special texture.  It's an alpha texture with tons of very tiny one or two pixel sized dots all over it.  You set the repeats very high, can't remember off the top of my head, but like in the 1000's.

Texture Me True, the texture store has a pack of different color textures that are made just for this and has specific directions.  You can experiment with the suggested settings.  The color of the dots and number of repeats and glow setting you use depends on what effect you want. 

For a wedding dress you probably would want a silver, or pale pastel color, even a multi color pastel would be cool giving the dress an opalecent look.  The pack above doesn't have that or pastels, but you can easily mod the textures for what you want or use them as a guide to make your own.

I found that if the dress is mesh, using another mesh model to texture like this works well.  You can but don't have to link it to the regular dress.  Not linking it gives you options.  You may need to use the next size up for the shimmer layer depending on the style of the dress.
