I need a lil’ bit of help! I’m not the greatest accessorizer; on a daily basis I usually just wear the same necklace & stud earrings and I am on my way. I want to add a little extra to my wedding day look, but I am not sure if I should wear a simple necklace and statement earrings or a statement necklace and simple earrings.
Just so you all know what I am currently working with, my normal earrings are bezel set OEC moissy studs and I am having a bezel set OEC moissanite necklace made in rose gold as well. (Pictures below). Would either of those work with my dress or should I do something that will stand out a bit more?
Here is a picture of the earrings and what the bezel necklace will be simlar to:
Here is the dress I am wearing and the veil:
I would also love to wear some sort of flower crown with the dress and veil because I think they’re beautiful, but do you all think that would look odd since the dress is not flowy and boho-ish? Not a huge flower crown, but a delicate one, kind of similar to the one below:
TL;DR: If anyone would care to offer up their opinions on what kind of necklace/earrings/anything else you think would compliment my dress & veil nicely it would be greatly appreciated. Pictures and links of suggestions would be lovely as well! In case the location/time impacts anyone’s opinion, it will be taking place close to sunset on the back patio of a large home that sits directly on the beach.
Thanks in advance! 🙂

I love that flower crown and think it would look great with your dress! If you do the flower crown, I would keep the rest of the accessories minimal. I think a great look would be flower crown + the earrings and necklace you posted. Doing a flower crown + statement jewelry would be too much, IMO.

do you have a hairstyle picked out?

I wouldn’t go with the flower crown TBH. Your veil and dress have such detailed lace already and “less is more” to me, so I wouldn’t want anything detracting from that (and from you).

The flower crown is lovely. I would wear it in lieu of a veil. But it would look great with it, too.
I would choose dangly earrings and a simple necklace, if it were me.
I’m sure you will look amazing no matter what you pick!

I’m thinking something like a low side bun with curls…something similar to these:
I agree with you both. I don’t want it to look too busy. Maybe I’ll take the veil off after the ceremony and just put on a flower crown instead? Or do you you think it’ll be too busy still?

I agree with veil and flower crown separately. I would do the veil for the ceremony and flower crown for the reception. I would still keep the rest of the accessories light for both looks. Keep in mind you will have a ring(s) as accessories, too!

with those hairstyles I’d go with statement earrings, simple necklace or bracelet, and a veil. I don’t think a flower crown goes with that dress.

The more I look at it the more I agree with you. I think the flower crown is just wishful thinking b/c I find them so pretty. Do you have any suggestions for types of statement earrings?
Thank you for your sweet comment, much appreciated 🙂

I would definitely go with the flower crown and a very simple soft drop veil like this:
That could be gorgeous!

Oh wow! You look amazing! Gorgeous dress- you ROCK it! I’m all for statement necklaces/earrings, but honestly, in my opinon you look so lovely that I would go for the “less is more” look. I think your day-to-day items are perfect. The other option is to invest in a new simple piece. Perhaps a new pair of pearl studs or a single strand of pearls. I love the idea of a new piece of wedding jewelry that can be passed down (not costume).
