I have finally picked out my wedding dress, which was a huge source of stress for me. Now I’ve just latched on to a new stress – choosing jewelry!
I’ve been sort of a weird funk for the last few years, wearing only lacy white dresses and pearls, and my fiance thought it would be neat to put all the bridesmaids in flowing blush dresses and pearls (bracelet, necklace, studs), so they can be imitations of me, like the original bridesmaid tradition. He wants me in something uncharacteristically sparkly so I will stand out. The problem is, I’ve been looking at jewelry, and am not sure how much is too much, because these are things I would not normally wear.
This is my dress:
I’m considering something like this:
But then what would I wear with it? And will I just look like a disney character? How much jewelry is too much? There are quite a few pieces I like on this website, but I just don’t know.
I really like this as well:
but I wouldn’t know what kind of necklace or earrings to pair with it.
What do you guys think?

@Junip3r: I love the jewelry you’ve posted! But yeah, I like the idea of pearls and rhinestones as well. What about a pearl necklace with a rhinestone brooch? My Maid/Matron of Honor wore this one back in the day:

@pengoala: Thanks, I was thinking about something like that, but I kind of like the idea of not wearing pearls, so I am completely different from the bridesmaids. The first necklace I posted is my favorite, but I don’t know how much jewelry to wear with it. Just some small studs?
Or maybe I could wear the bracelet as a statement piece with a bit more showey necklace and matching earrings, something like this:
But I don’t know. Would that be too much?

@Tasji23: Thanks! I actually had my heart set on a really unique Rosa Clara, but it didn’t work out. I think this dress is the sort of dress I dreamed about as a child, though, and I’m really happy with it.
I skyped with my mom about the jewelery, and she loves the first necklace I posted. I’ve decided I’m going to go with that one, and these earrings, but no other jewelry:
