i’m looking for opinions. I have this great old rhinestone bracelet that belonged to my FI’s great aunt (who is still living, but got rid of a lot of the jewelry she didn’t wear any longer). I LOVE it, but have never worn it, as it is pretty over the top for daily use. I would love to wear it on our wedding day, and think she would like to see me wear it. Wondering if you think the bracelelt will work with the beading on my dress.
Also, I was thinking pearls for the bridesmaids as they are wearing wrist corsages of single orchids attached to three string pearl bracelets, but do you think that they should have a little bling in their necklace/earrings since I have will have rhinestone bling in my accessories?

I love the bracelet!! It’s so vintage and touch of old Hollywood without being too much at all. Your dress is lovely, and looks great on you, too! I think the style and silhouette lends itself to an old hollywood type feel, and that bracelet completes the look! Great find! 🙂 And it has sentimental value, which is even better.
Can you upload pics of the bridesmaids dresses/bouquet ideas so that I have a better idea of what look you’re going for? That would help in choosing sparkly vs classic jewelery for the girls. 🙂

You know what…in re-reading your original post, I think I better understand the vision. I say, depending on the style of the dress, maybe go with just pearl earrings, nix the necklace, and of course, keep the bracelet corsage. I think it will be just the right amount of accessories without being too much. I fear that pearl necklace, pearl earrings, and pearl bracelet/corsage could be overkill, so I think the best way to break it up would be earrings and corsage. But that’s totally just me!! I’m more of a simmpleton: less is more-type mantra.
However, I also think if you miss some semblance of sparkle on the girls, and want to tie it in with your accessories, you could totally get away with maybe even a dressier chandelier type earring, no necklace, and the bracelet corsage. Basically, anything could work, but I wouldn’t do earrings, necklace AND bracelet. Choose two, I think. 🙂 Best of luck!!!

@tuscanbride: Thanks for your insight and giving me a different way to look at the Bridesmaid accessories. I like the idea about longer earrings and no necklace. I have attached a pic of the Bridesmaid dress, and a photo that my florist is using to design their wrist corsages. My florist did mention that she can do rhinestone bracelets on the corsages, it will cost a bit more…but if I am not doing necklaces, that is just a repurposing of the budget. 🙂
Any new thoughts?
Bridesmaid dress, going to be in black just like the picture, and their hair will be up.
Wrist corsage. If my florist does pearl, it is a 3-strand pearl bracelet. She can do rhinestone, but I haven’t seen an example of that bracelet, as I was thinking pearl when we met last time.
