I had it all picked out: old, new, borrowed, & blue. Okay, originally for my “something old” I was going to wear my grandmothers (real) pearls. But when I put the necklace on with my dress, they just stood out so much because my dress is pure white, and the pearls are ivory looking. I had my heart set on wearing them.
Yesterday when I was out with my FSIL to pick up the BM’s gowns, I found a necklace that I liked. It’s just a single strand necklace, and has a single (white) pearl on it. It’s really pretty, but now I feel like I’ll hurt my father’s feelings for not wearing his mother’s pearls (which actually are mine now, regardless if I wear them)
I know it’s my day, and I should wear what I want. But I don’t know what to do without hurting feelings.

PS: I forgot to mention. The pearls in my head piece & veil are white.

is it long enough to wrap and wear as a bracelet? It wouold be less obvious that way. Or you could, right before you walk down the aisle, wrap it around your bouquet then hand it off for safekeeping. Is there anything else of hers that you could carry? If you think teh colors are way off, explain that to your dad. He wont want you looking mismatched on your wedding day.

I don’t know if it will wrap around my wrist or not. I could try. Actually it has a clasp, so it might work like that.

I really like the idea of wrapping them around your bouquet.

Yes, I love Tessabella’s idea of incorporating them into your bouquet so they can still be there, but not take away from your dress!

I vote for the bouquet idea!

That is such a good idea to wrap the necklace around the bouquet! No matter how you chose to include it (or chose to not include it), I’m sure your father will understand and support your choice.
