- Wedding: November 2012
My aunt came with me when I picked my wedding gown (along with my mom and sister)
I chose an off-white gown. It looks white unless you put it against bight true white, and then you see it’s much softer looking, and suits my fair skin and dark blonde hair much better than white ever would. I tried on the gown and my aunt instantly said I should put gold jewelry with it. My ring happens to be Portugese yellow gold, so gold accessories felt appropriate in that regard too.
I thought it would be a little unexpected as well, since so many people wear silver.
I discovered there’s a reason everyone wears silver: It’s so hard to find gold!
I found my earrings on amazon. I first saw them on bridal website for $25 MORE
The hair pieces were so much harder to find! I tried a silver hair vine at the bridal shop, but they told me the gold was discontinued. I was determined to find something after seeing how the hair piece finished off my look.
I found that nearly everything with gold has pearls. My gown has no pearls, my earrings had no pearls…nothing was working.
I finally found these gorgeous combs from weddingfactorydirect.com
Luckily they arrived in 3 days! I was getting antsy with my wedding less than 2 weeks away. 🙂
