I’m curious as to how much everyone has spent on their accessories. If you splurged on your dress are you also splurging on your accessories, or cutting back? If you paid less for your dress are you spending extra on your accessories or not?
I’ve realized that I’ve spent more total on my accessories than I actually paid for my dress. I guess it might be because I got a good deal on my dress, and couldn’t justify spending a ton on a wedding dress anyway. I also wasn’t happy with a lot of the less expensive accesories out there, so I felt like I had to spend more to get what I wanted and was happy with.

My dress was only $400 so it was hard to avoid spending a lot on accessories. My veil was $35, the hairpiece was around $50, my bracelet was $95, and my shoes were $90. But that’s all i bought. The rest I borrowed from mom.So yeah, i spent a chunk on accessories.

So far I have spent – $115 on shoes, $30 on a wrap, $24 on brooches for shoes, $60 on jewelry, $70 on headpiece.

I splurged on everything. When I saw the price of my veil I literally felt sick my mother thought something had happened. But my grandmother came with us to pick out my veil and accessories so she fell in love and helped out. I started with a budget of $3-5k (hoping to stay on the low end) for everything and ended up spending 5k on my dress and $1,700 on my veil, headpiece, and jewlery.

Hmm, I got a good deal on my dress so I felt a bit better about spending money for accessories, I suppose, but I don’t think it made me decide to spend more.
I think I’ve spent about $50 on materials for my headpiece, $150 for a necklace, $130 on shoes. Still not sure what’s happening with earrings, bracelet, and clutch.

I spent about $700 for my dress $150 for shoes $40for a veil (that I hate!) I still don’t know about my jewelry but most likely it will be something simple and inexpensive!
