- Wedding: September 2010
I love jewelry and accessorizing but for some reason I am stumped when it comes to my own dress! Here’s the jewelry and accessories that I have bought for the dress:
Earrings – pretty standard simple drop cz’s. But should I go for Chandeliers? Or simple studs? That’s what I’m struggling with right now.
Marita Bracelet by Michelle Miller of MMM Jewelry that I LOVE. This piece is staying! For some reason I couldn’t link or past the pic but it looks really similar to this one:
Hair Flower by Maria Elena (see pic) LOVE this one. Made from the satin on my dress. Yay! Has pearls and rhinestones.
Cathedral Veil with Blusher: Cathedral portion is detachable and then blusher converts to regular veil if I want to keep it in for the reception.
Hair will most likely be half up/half down a la Tiffani Amber-Thiessan’s wedding style or side ponytail. So either way, hair will be partially down and I tend to think hair down acts as another accessory and pushes me away from a necklace.
Plus, everyone who has seen my dress has said that I shouldn’t wear a necklace since there is flower applique with rhinestones on the top part of the dress. The rhinestones are flat back round swarovski crystals. Clear crystal does not work with the dress. Pearls do but only when paired with rhinestones like the bracelet. But because the dress is strapless, I feel a bit bare. And did I mention that I am tall? LOL Six feet to be exact so I am not afraid to wear big pieces! It can be a blessing and a curse though… delicate pieces can look lost on me.
I visited the Swarovski store today by my house and there were some amazing necklaces that had me reconsidering my decision to not wear one but it’s probably because they look just so striking under that light! However, I do love how Melania Knauss pulled off her wedding look – big necklace, no earrings. The lady at Swarovski gasped when I started trying on their stud earrings. She said “It’s your WEDDING”. Duh, lady. But I don’t want to look like a Swarovski billboard. I want to look like me. But I am having a HUGE 600 person wedding so I can afford to look more formal. See… this is what I do, go back and forth. Agggghhh. 🙂
So, I was leaning towards pearl or diamond studs. i just love when I see pics of brides and you see the brides face and bridal silhouette and not her big jewelry. But I am confused and thought I would reach out to you experts here on Wedding Bee. 😉
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading, Bees.
