Just went to my first dress fitting and brought my earrings/bracelet with me. When I sent pics home to my sister – she completely hated them! Now, she really had my best interests at heart, saying that I needed to make sure the jewelry complimented the bedazzle on my dress, because that would up the wow-factor of the ensemble.
I actually DON”T LIKE the bedazzle part of my dress, as it is not my personality, and I went to really great lengths to pick jewelry that was my style, rather than matching the bedazzle.
Now, I’m not sure what I should do, I find myself doubting my style/wishes because I’m worried I could ‘look better’.
Do you think my jewelry looks okay with my dress?
I’ve attached pics below, any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

I don’t see any problem with the jewellery with the dress, I think if you like it you should keep it.

Your sister’s not the one getting married. The jewelry looks great, go for it! 🙂

Honestly, I think the jewelry you selected looks a bit informal for your dress and I can see what you sister meant. You jewelry looks like something to be work with a sundress on a casual occasion. You don’t necessarily have to match the beading on your dress but I would definitely select something a little more formal or dressy.

Are the earrings gold? Silver/white gold bracelet?

i think if its you and you love em, do it….. you have to remeber no one else on earth is you, you could get a group of ten people/ladies together and everyone would have a different opinion. if you were sure when you picked it out, go for it…. and by the way, they are very pretty on you

I think it’s pretty set =) I was just asking if you were mixing gold/silver because in this pic the earrings looked gold (prob my computer screen), then I would say to stick to 1 color metal.

Ultimately, you should do what makes YOU happy! However, since you’ve asked our opinions, I’d recommend that you at least select traditional colors…maybe clear or ivory beads?? Just a thought…

Wear whatever you want! The jewelry doesn’t NOT go with your dress, it’s just a more unusual and more creative choice than most brides would probably choose. You probably spent a lot of time and effort choosing something you like.. wear it! And honestly, from the distance of the photo, you can’t tell the beads are colored anyway. Your sister can wear what she wants when she gets married.

Don’t worry about your sister, my sister dissed my awesome blue shoes because she thought they would pop out too much. They don’t know anything, theyre not the bride! Go for what you want 😀

The jewelry is informal, so I understand what your sister meant. But I voted to keep it b/c it is “you” . . . I also wouldn’t say that it doesn’t “go” with your dress… it’s just informal.

It is your day and you should wear whatever jewelry you want!

I think your jewelry is very, very pretty! I do understand what your sister meant; a pair of crystal silver chandelier earrings or a sterling bracelet could really compliment the dress and add some more of a ‘Wow!’ factor. However, if you’re uncomfortable, then by all means, stick with what you like!

I really like your jewelry! I love that it adds a little color to the whole look. I think if you’re most comfortable with the jewelry you chose, then you should wear it. It’s more your style and I think you’ll rock it.
