So maybe some people have realized I really like polls, but anyways I was curious… For the poll if you’re in between “bold” [ETA:bold doesn’t necessarily mean different] or “subtle” please just pick which one you think is closer, but if you wore both (ex. more than one type of earrings) pick both! If you wore like 20 thin bangles you can think of that as one bold brav elet if you like. I’m over explaining. Anyways…
How happy were you with your jewelry? Did you go with your first vision or anything like it? Did you wear more or less than you had thought you would? How often do you regularly wear jewelry, and how much? Howmuch did your look change from when it began to leaving the reception?
I’m leaning towards just fairly-statement-making earrings, and whatever I put in my hair and there’ll be some bling in my dress.

I plan on wearing gold and pearl drop earrings that my FI got me a few years ago, a small diamond heart necklace that was my grandmothers (I got it when I graduated college – she passed away when I was 11), and no bracelets or rings (other than engagement and wedding).
I never really wear big jewelry, so this works for me.

I’m wearing some really awesome jewelry that I have collected over the years. It’s fun that all the pieces also have a story behind them (and I don’t have to spend money for them!). The only piece of jewelry I would love to buy for the wedding is a necklace that is personalized with the GPS coordinates of our ceremony location, but that’s denpendant on the budget. I’m an understated non-blingy person so that’s not going to change. One thing I know will feel weird is not wearing my watch, I wear it everyday, but not for my wedding. I like the idea that next to you dress your jewelry is the place to show off your personality. It’s also something you can wear after the wedding everyday, making you smile as you go about your daily life.

I have multiple piercings all over, and I also wore pearl drop earrings, a sapphire cross necklace/pendant which I always wear, my e-ring on my right hand, pearl hair pins, and a sash and blingy brooch on my dress.

I splurged on a tiara for my wedding, and I loved it. I paired that with a simple pair of earrings and a simple bracelet. I loved how I looked. I’m glad i didn’t have a necklace… it would have been too much.
You should wear whatever you want, keeping in mind you will have these photos for the rest of your life. If you do something bold, will you regret it 30 years from now? you might look back on your photos, and think you did something too “trendy”
This is how I looked

@ladyamalthea: Im not sure what you classify as bold and subtle. I am wearing my moms pearl necklace that my grandma also wore at her wedding, so 3 generations and pearl stud earrings.

I wore earrings which were a birthday present from OH, a brooch on the front of my dress and a side tiara/hair thing. No necklace or bracelet.

@jesssamesssa: I’m just going with bold vs subtle based on size and how much attention you think they attract. When I think of a subtle necklace, I think of a relatively small pendant on a thin chain, but if it was noticeably a skull or something like that, that could be bold. I think a pearl necklace is bold, just in a very classic way, and I love that yours is an heirloom 🙂
I’m finding all this fascinating, and I’m seeing some beautiful ladies and jewelry!

@ladyamalthea: Oh ok! I am a very traditional bride and my dress has lace and sequins on the entire dress so I wanted something that would accessorize but not take away from my dress. My dad actually wants me to wear his moms pearls that she wore at her wedding. She died last year. I really dont want to because I want to wear the same one my mom and her mom did, and hopefully my daughter will want to wear it as well. So instead of breaking my dads heart I am going to have my florist pin her pearl necklace onto my bouquet somehow so that it is still incorporated. 🙂

I would call my necklace bold because its two strands of crystals and my RHR bold because it is bigger than my e-ring. The earrings are definitely subtle as they are so much smaller than they appear in this picture. I need to decide on a hair piece still, but I hope to find some subtle crystal headband.

- Wedding: October 2013 - Vine Street Church
Earrings and a pearl necklace, but for me, the earrings are pretty showy because they’re large pearls with six oval diamonds on each, so I’d consider them bold.

In my culture we wear 3-4 outfits – I think I’m going to wear 3. So for the white bridal gown I’m probably going to wear pearls, for a traditional two-piece outfit that’s covered in gold/silver embroidery I’m going to wear gold (because my family will be giving it to me), and for a traditional red dress I’m going to be wearing jade, to make the colours pop. 🙂
I’ve been very interested in hair pieces recently, so I’d love to wear some as well!

@ladyamalthea: my dress looks like there are pearls all throughout the dress.
My headpiece I am borrowing from my FSIL…its a Swarovski crystal headband-I didn’t think it would go with the dress, but it goes nicely and add that extra sparkle
My earrings are sterling silver with pearls throughout
My necklace is very simple, its a single pearl necklace with a sterling silver chain
My bracelet is my moms and is all pearls.
As you can see, I love pearls

@ladyamalthea: My favorite part of my accessories were my statement earrings!
I wore statement earrings, bracelet and a hair comb!

I have simple gold earings, and then my great-grandmother’s necklace which is a gold R with diamonds, which is more bold than the earrings. I’m also wearing a headband with crystals.
