Hello bees, I need your opinions in accessorizing my wedding attire!
My dress is pictured below. Ignore the grumpy face (i was definitely “hangry” at this fitting)!
And below is the back-view, and my veil
In the first picture, I have on the jewelry I bought, plus the strand of pearls my mom gave me, but I am not sure if it works! That’s where I need your opinion.
Do the earrings work? My mom said they make the real strand of pearls look fake.
Is the necklace too much?
Is the bracelet too much?
I would really love to add a subtly blingy sash like this one, but will it be too much going on?
I love how thin the belt/sash is, but I would like the bow in the back to be at least 2.5 inches wide. I wanted to sew the embellishment onto a 2.5-inch ribbon, but fold it in half where the bling is, so that it is 1.25-inches wide at the waist, but hs the full 2.5 inches at the bow in the back. Is this all going to work, or is it going to look weird?

i love your veil. beautiful.
i prefer the jewellery that you have on. i love a simple strand of pearls, it’s so classy. the sash would be overboard. if you really want the sash, omit the bracelet.

I think from what I’ve learned on here is that you cant have too little (unless you are wearing nothing.) So, I think if you wanted, you could even go without the necklace.

I think the earrings and necklace but no sash 🙂

I love everything but your sash. I just think a sash would take away from your dress.

I agree no sash. And I think your jewelry works very well with your dress. NO ONE is going to compare your earrings to your necklace! It’s the overall look that is important and yours ROCKS!

Thanks everyone! Man, I didn’t know I would be so attached to that sash though! I have never tried a blingy sash on with my dress. Maybe I should take it to the bridal store to try some on… i dunno!

i like the sash,….love your veil,
i say keep those and get different necklace/earrings. not sure about the bracelet
possibly no necklace and some crystal/pearl earrings and that bracelet if it matches, its simple…it is just pearls or does it have crystals on it as well?

I’d go with earrings and the awesome blingy sash. Nix the necklace, nix the bracelet.

i think pearl strand necklaces look best with stud earrings rather than dangly ones, so i’d switch the earrings to a small pearl stud instead, or skip the necklace. and i think no sash.

I would omit the necklace (personal preference – I love the look of strapless dresses that just show off a beautiful décolletage), and then you can keep the earrings and bracelet. With the sash, I would do a ribbon sash (maybe grosgrain or even horsehair, the Vera Wang style ones) with some blingy detail on them.
