Hello Bees! I am scheduled to pick up my dress on December 20th (YIKES!) and now I’m on the hunt for accessories.
I found this great website with tons of stuff and I saw these pieces and felt they all looked great together but I dont want to over do it. Not wearing a necklace & my hair will be out and wild (just like in the picture below).
So considering how honest most of you bees have been, I’d like some feedback.
SO here is the dress:
Here is the headband I’m eyeing (on the model):
Bracelet and earrings:
Finally here is the belt that will be sewn onto my dress:

@CocoClassic: I think it will all look beautiful! I’m a “more is more” kind of lady and I love all the bling you’ve got going on! Post a pic when you have it all together!

@CocoClassic: Love it all….I especially love the headband!

@s2bmrscook: Thanks! I figured it wouldnt be TOO bad especially since I’m not doing a necklace and the headpiece is embelished only on one side. I guess I can order it all, see how it looks and whatever I dont like, I can resell or gift to another bride.
Oops, I forgot to post a picture of my super awesome shoes! They will be the peep-toe version!

Thanks Ladies. Once I actually have it all in my possession I will definitely upload a picture.
This may sound silly but for the married ladies and soon to wed, did you try everything all together to make sure you were completely happy with your look?

@CocoClassic: Oh yes once I had everything picked out I tried it all on together to make sure I was happy with everything! Definitely a good idea!

@CocoClassic: It all gels and as for the shoes – they deserve their own thread 😉

@CocoClassic: I freaking love those shoes!
I did take all of my jewelry and veil with me to one of my fittings to make sure everything worked and it definitely did. Several of my friends kept trying to tell me that my necklace was overkill and would be a distraction. I just told them, “Have I not been right about literally EVERY aesthetic decision regarding my wedding? Ok. Trust me thanks.” And at the wedding, the number 2 comment I received was “OH MY GOD your necklace is incredible!”
Trust your instincts. If you love it, rock it. You will look beautiful!

@CocoClassic: You are going to look gorgeous! Those shoes are soo awesome too! Are they custom, I’ve never seen anything so pretty in shoes!!
I def. tried everything on together and took a pic just to make sure it looked as good in picture form as it did in person..

@CocoClassic: I think it will look great together! I got all blinged up for my wedding, it was awesome! And yes, I also tried it all on together to make sure I liked it all together – I purchased mine from the boutique though, so I could do it before I bought it. I think you’d do just fine reselling or gifting anything you didn’t end up liking if there isn’t a return policy for them…
And I love your shoes!! 🙂

The only criticism I guess I could find (and this is stretching to be honest) is that with the blingy headband, sash, bracelet, and shoes, your earrings could be more simple – convince your FI to buy you a great pair of diamond studs you’ll use all the time!
It all looks awesome though 🙂

@weddingbound: Thanks. I thought it was a silly question BUT it doesnt hurt to ask when you arent sure!
@CatyLady: Arent they absolutely ridiculous? When we made the final decision to get married in Rio de Janeiro all I thought when I saw these shoes is they SCREAM Brazil! No way I could pass them up. I cannot wait to take pictures in those crazy shoes here (Escadaria Selaron):
@s2bmrscook: LOL! I love it. Im very boho, down to earth kinda chic so all of this frill and crystals and such is a little overwhelming BUT I said if I’m going to do it, Imma do it BIG! If you dont mind, please post a pic of you in your dress and necklace! I’d love to see it all together! I havent ordered the shoes yet and they take at least 3 weeks to make so I hope it all works because I cant return them lol.
@BeckyS0: Thanks so much! Those shoes are out of this world lol and I cannot wait to get them in my hands! I dont care if they hurt, I will wear them ALL night long lol.
Thanks for all the advices Lady Bees! Once everything is ordered I will try it on together and hope it works! If not I’m sure I’ll be back lol.
