I am having a hard time deciding on jewelry for my girls…
This is the dress:
This is some of what I’m considering:
Pearl chunky bracelet and earings from Etsy for $19 in Pink, Ivory, and Crystal.
The flowers will be light pink and ivory which is where the colors come from. One of my bm’s loved these, another though they might be gawdy.
Bracelet and Earings from BKE, $10 each in Champagne.
The girls are wearing metallic or gold sandals (they bought their own)
Or should I do just earings? Any suggestions for ‘statement’ earings?
Or tell them to get/wear whatever they’d like? These would be a part of their gift.
What would you want? What are you getting your girls? What would look best with the dress? Any suggestions? THANKS!

You will LOVE the pearl set. Kim is fantastic to work with. I ordered several pieces from her and they are stunning. Had a custom bracelet set made for ny sister which she loved.

I think the champagne rhinestones are beautiful… but why not let them pick their own jewelry?

I don’t really like the idea of buying them jewelery as part of their gift that they have to wear (and most likely only will wear) on the wedding day. Its more a gift to yourself that to them. I would just let them pick out stuff.

@Roe: I’ve seen this a lot on the wedding bee, but EVERY wedding I’ve been in, 5 I think, always gave jewelry as a gift (and usually the only gift). I do agree though because each girl has different tastes, one might like chunky jewelry, one won’t, gold vs. silver, etc.
It also isn’t the only gift, I’ve already got cute wristlets and am working on some other ideas.

@Josina: I hear you, I still just don’t like it. Its not a “gift” to make them matching for your own purposes. Buy it for them, great! But not as part of their “bridesmaid gift,” just do it to be nice.
(I bought my BMs necklaces–not matching, but suiting thier own personalities–for them to wear whenever. They all loved them so much and wore them on the wedding day anyway.)

I’m not a fan of any of these choices, sorry.

I think that dress needs more of a bold color- I actually like the way the red in the flower looks with that color. What are your wedding colors?

@naturedoc1112: Pink and Champagne… Using a lot of light colors/neutrals… ivory, white, light pink. I did use a dark/hot pink in the invitations though.
Suggestions are welcome!! I also thinking of just getting ‘statement’ earings and thats it. Just haven’t found any I love yet.

@September29: lol, thanks for your opinion! A couple bm’s have chimed in – one loved the pearls, another thought they were gawdy. So i’m a bit all over the place on those! 🙂

I love the champagne color…I think it’s very elegant. There are a pair of Givenchy earrings on Macy’s.com that look like they might be champagne…and on a sale with a coupon, I don’t think the price would be that bad.
Just some ideas. 🙂

@Honu_36: Love the earings on the left! Thanks. 🙂 I pinned them so I can keep an eye on the price.
