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!!!!
