    @HonoraryNerd:  I am planning on wearing a RHR that my FI gave me 4.5 years ago and I never take off. It is blue so def doesn’t match haha. The only other jewlery asied from wedding set of course is whatever I end up borrowing from my FI grandmother, my FI mother, (both of which will be pins I think I will pin to my bouquet or in my hair) and my mother (which will be earrings). I don’t care if they match but luckily my mother loves white gold so it will end up matching by happy accident!. My FILS pieces will probably be yellow gold and thats okay! I don’t think many people will notice since they will be small things and I don’t plan on wearing a necklace.

    I would never even notice this, or look to see if a bride’s jewelry matched. People often wear sentimental pieces or family jeweley at weddings, so I would be surprised if everything matched perfectly.

    I knew my husband was giving me earrings as a wedding present, but I had no idea what they looked like. I decided to wear them on my wedding day regardless. I thought it would be fun to wear “surprise earrings.”

    They turned out to be large, natural green pearls he chose himself and had custom made in a drop setting. They were stunning with my ivory tulle ballgown, and next to my bridesmaids in their green and blue Mikado silk dresses. I am so glad I didn’t overthink it or obsess too much. The worry would’ve been unnecessary!

    @HonoraryNerd:  I just make sure that my jewelry is all the same! I don’t think anyones going to be looking so closely on your wedding day to say that your jewelry doesn’t match your belt. Plus, I think being matchy-matchy all the time is kinda boring. 

    Also, most dresses don’t come with rose-colored sparkle… its usually silver, and all my jewelry is rose gold. So I wouldn’t buy new silver stuff JUST for my wedding day, that I’d never wear again.

    My dress matches my jewelry.. it has TONS of beading & pearls on my dress, so I have a simple pearl necklace & earrings. With a pearl headband.

    I had rose gold earrings and bracelet, palladium rings and silver accents on my dress/belt! Everything looked great together!

    @HonoraryNerd:  Well yeah, I read the original post. I was meaning ‘you’ as a general person. I don’t think it matters what color jewelry goes with what color sash/belt/dress. It will all look pretty to me 🙂 haha

    There is not really any beadwork or metallics on my dress. But there are flowers, so my jewelry is all kind of flower/pearls. I would match the accessories/jewelry to the beading on my dress if I had it.
