I’m a “non-bling” kind of bride and generally like things kept simple. The best way to describe our wedding style is rustic-vintage and low-key. My dress is actually a bridesmaid dress. On the left side of the dress, right below the bustline where there is a small ribbon, I will be adding a vintage rhinestone brooch that belonged to my grandmother. Right there, between the headpiece, brooch and shoes, to me, seems like a lot. I plan on wearing my hair in a loose chingon with a headpiece I bought today on Etsy. (LOVE that site btw).
I am completely clueless about what to do for jewlery. I hadn’t planned on wearing a necklace. Is that okay to do with a strapless dress? I would like some pretty earrings and maybe a bracelet. I don’t want to be the too much or too little bride. Also, if the brooch on my dress is on the left, which side to place my headpiece?
I am uploading pics of my ensemble thus far. Thanks for your help!!

My dress was strapless, and I didn’t wear a necklace either. I think your dress would look great with the accessories you have, and some delicate earrings and a bracelet would be perfect too!

My dress is strapless, too. I am wearing a necklace, but it’s a simple diamond solitaire pendant. Maybe if you do decide to do a necklace, you can go with something like that.Maybe something pearl instead of diamond since you’re not crazy about “bling”.
I don’t think your look is over-accessorized so far. It seems like you’re at just the right spot! I love the idea of using your grandmother’s brooch by the way. 🙂

I think if you wanted a necklace some pearls would look really nice. It would look nice as a bracelet and earings as well.

Maybe a neckless, or a nice headpiece

Everything looks good so far. If you wear a necklace, keep the earrings simple. If you want to wear bigger earrings, I say veto the necklace. I hate it when people wear too much sparkly stuff. I’m a less is more kinda girl.
