I will start off by saying I am terrible at decisions. I get overwhelmed with so many choices and then I get stuck. I have such a hard time choosing the right jewelry to go with my dress. Is it just me, or does everyone have this problem? And if not, how do they make the end result look so effortless?

msfreemis: It was tough for me as well. I ended up purchasing my top 5 favorites of each item (earrings, necklace, etc) and trying them on with my dress & hair done then took pics & made my mom & sis vote on their favorites. Then I rotated them out with my alterations fittings- one fitting I wore one set & took pics, the next fitting was another set with pics… After all that it was pretty easy to see which fit my dress & style the best! Just make sure to check return policies- I got all my jewelry at a store that let you return anything for a full refund within 30 days so I just returned whatever I didn’t end up wanting ot use..

Well, I didn’t care too much about accessories, so it wasn’t too hard for me! I found shoes that worked for $14.50 at Target. I also found out that my grandmother was giving me some nice earrings for a wedding present, so I wore those since they were free and belonged to my great-grandmother. And that was it. Well, I also wore the rings that I wear every day. But no necklace or bracelet.
So do you already own any accessories that would work?

I believe a lot of brides have the indecisive issue. As you see from this site, people buy multiple dresses, change venues at the last second, all sorts of stuff. So yeah, I think what you’re feeling is normal. I’m a pretty indecisive person in general but I planned my wedding in 6 months so I didn’t have time for that business. I will say accessories were tough just because I had no idea what I was suppose to wear. My shoes were important to me so I got those shortly before dress alterations. As far as jewlery, I tried holding up different earring options next to the dress, but the more I thought about it the more confused I got. I kept it simple with my capped sleeve lace Oleg Cassini: big pearl studs from my mom, a vintage brooch in my hair, and my rings.

msfreemis: It’s been challenging for me, but I’ve picked things out along the way. I’m a planner, so I gave myself a year to get it all sorted out. And I have everything now!
Now I am seriously debating about what to do with my hair… there are so many choices out there!!!!
