i am full on in love with that dress, boquet and clutch.  I think as long as you don’t carry both at the same time, it will be fine.  otherwise – itll be overkill….

I think the bouquet is way too  much for that dress.

 The clutch would work- the bling helps to coordinate it with the dress but isn’t overkill.

Both isn’t overkill, you will only be carrying one at a time and both are to die for!

I love the bouquet if there is a way to tone it down slightly. Both the bouquet and the clutch work as long as you don’t carry them at the same time.

Wow! Lovely dress! I think having both would be fine if you arent carrying them together! I love them both!

My dress is the Rivini Serena and it seems like I have very similar taste to yours. I plan on adding thin crystal or lace straps and a satin sash with a brooch (much like Karena rolyale). Here I am in the slightly too large dress

 

So I think I found the same Etsy seller for your brooch boquet (the first one) but the one I fell in love with was just slightly different, maybe a little less brooches. I’m in the progress of collecting brooches and will make my own version. She seems to use around 25-30 brooches and I have collected 17 for roughly 100$ that is simmilar in style and size.

Finally I just adore the clutch so now I’m thinking about adding that as well. Were did you find it?

I think the 2nd clutch would work a bit better because like you said, I think the original one is AWESOME, but would take away from your beaurtiful dress.

I vote yes for the clutch and the second bouquet! So pretty! (And I agree with PP that the first bouquet might be slightly too much for your gorgeous dress.)

I had both a clutch and a bouquet. I don’t see anything wrong with it. After all, you can’t keep your lipstick in your bouquet!!!

@Stellar Magnitude:

I have actually already ordered from faboulous brooch and it went really smooth. However the rhinestones are plastic and have a more dull appearance than some other brooches I bought on ebay. I will use the ones from fabolous brooch as fillers more towards the end and then more carefully select my centerpieces from ebay and/or etsy. Since I noticed this big difference in the stones, I have started to focus on brooches with swarovski crystals when searching on ebay. You can find them for 10-15$ each.

Here are some of my brooches. It is not the best image but the ones in red has glass stones or swarovski and all the rest are from fabolous brooch. Most of them are much darker. The starfish from FB is really nice though.

Yep, I had a clutch and a bouquet.  I had to keep my lipgloss and cellphone somewhere!  My mom held my clutch for me during the wedding and I took it with me afterwards.  Wasn’t a problem at all.  But mine was just an $11 Target clutch.
