LOVE the Torreon dress. *swoon*

BellaNouvelle makes jewelry JUST LIKE the one you’re wearing. I wore the Sabrina and it was sparkly and only $85. I see the bracelet you want is $770! Same look.

I love chandelier earrings. However, i think drops would be better, you do have a busier dress and the bracelet is a big impact piece, Chandeliers are too much, but a slightly elaborate drop earring would be muy fab. I’m partial–I wore elaborate drops. Almost did chandeliers, but they much too much on me.

I’m almost 6 feet tall also, YAY! I linked you my recaps; i had a strapless fit and flair dress. I wore drop earrings, a veil, a hair flower (just for the reception tho), and that bracelet. I also wore mom’s diamond pendant. It didn’t get lost on me, but it wasn’t overwhelming. I had a busy neckline, too. I couldn’t NOT wear a necklace. Seriously, i had to have one. This was perfect and floated perfectly on my bustline.

Anyways you might get a good idea based on what I wore. I’m sort of a flashy accessory person though, and lots of people are into simpliciuty. Everyone who knows me knows jewelry is sorta my “thing” and i always go for bold pieces. A simple string of pearsl wouldn’t have worked for me.

I too will be outfitted in the Torrean next year for my wedding. I decided against wearing a neacklace to keep from taking away from the gown, I will be doing hanging pearl and diamond earings with bracelet to match. Good luck to you finding wat your looking for.

Oh you are much too kind!!! i’m so thrilled inside to know my wedding makes such a big impact. I worked on it for so long I was less than “blown away” by the results, just pleased that everything turned out well!

I wore the Maggie Sottero Irene and I got it for $400! My necklace and earrings were borrowed from my mom–she’s had them for about 30 years! Can’t really help you on that one, lol. The earrings were a round pearl, then a cluster of diamonds, then a big tear drop pearl. The necklace was a fat marquise shaped. In the middle was a marquise diamond, and then surrounded by a cluster of little tiny round diamonds to make up the fat marquise shaped. It was like one big stone amidst a sea of stones (not a halo style).

Personally, I like the idea of a necklace much more than a headband! You could find a simple pendant. Moisannite is affordalbe (and sparkly) or you could do a funky blue sapphire. I think as long as it’s a simple pendant-sytle you’re good to go. Even a reftangular style one would be neat. I definitely don’t think a necklace will be “too much” even though your dress is busy–when else do you get to bling out, right?! I got lots of compliments on my jewelry, so as long as it all goes together, you should be good. I feel naked in a strapless dress without a necklace, too, by the way. No matter what! I bet you can put an alchemy bid on Etsy and have some drop earrings and a necklace made that goes with the look of your bracelet =]. I sent Bella Nouvelle pictures of my earrings and necklace and asked her what would look best from her collection.

Haha, no heels. I’m actually 1/2″ taller than him. He went out and bought his own dress shoes b/c tuxedo shoes are so flat. And shiny. lol. I wore the Anne Klein Alontae sandals in white. They were flat AND i got to wear them after the wedding. I wear them all the time now. Love them. And way comfy

I’m ordering the torrean. I tried it on today with big chandeliers (in store) the earrings were larger but the actual stones on the earring were very delicate, which almost matched the tiny sparkles in the middle of the flowers on the dress. Although the earrings were big, they didn’t overwhelm the dress or my face. I really really think that this dress doesn’t need a necklace. If you want to wear one b/c you like necklaces, keep it simple and it will look great, but if you just think you should b/c it’s extra sparkle or b/c brides are allowed to go all out, don’t. 

 

You already have: Hair (I count this as an accessory sort of, like you), earrings, hair flower, and veil. Plus the neckline of the Torrean is active and the bust is active too. that’s already 6 things competing against your face. No necklace. But that’s just me πŸ™‚
