    Under a hundred! (but I didn’t think to count my veil, which was $100)

    white gold heart bracelet – previous xmas gift from Fiance

    earrings/necklace set – $20

    wedding shoes – $50

    might buy a clutch to match the shoes, but it wouldn’t spend more than $25

    So far all I’ve purchased were my shoes for $50. I am super lucky and am having all my jewelry custom made for me by a friend of the family who own a jewelry business. She is making my earrings, bracelet and a jeweled sash for my dress. So excited! I will be getting a veil at some point as well, but I have a $100 credit to use at the salon my dress is from, so I will just pick something out from there.

    I think I’m going to end up making a bunch of my jewelry, but not sure yet.  I’ll probably blow some cash on my shoes, and have decided to forego the birdcage veil in favor of a full-blown veil with blusher.  Maybe. ha

    It depends on whether or not you count shoes…
     
    I bought my earrings for $30 on Etsy, my necklace is one that I’m borrowing from my sister, I haven’t bought my bracelet yet but it will probably be under $50. So that would put me under $100.
     
    BUT I bought Bagdley Mischka shoes for $180 and then I bought some yellow wedges for $68 dollars and I’m still not sure which ones I’ll be wearing!

    I got my necklace, earrings, and hairpin for $75 on etsy, which I thought was a great deal. BUT my shoes were $225.. so that puts me up to $300 for accessories.

    I got my earrings and bracelet from Kohl’s during the holiday season (rhinestones) and my hair barette from Etsy (which was less than half of what I almost paid at the local mall store). I am getting my veil from Etsy too and my shoes were on sale at Macy’s for the wedding and my reception shoes were on sale on-line at Nordstrom. My one accessory splurge was my tulle bolero from Pronovias, my strapless gown is from them and I had to have the bolero after I saw it on line – it’s gorgeous!!!

    My earrings should’ve been $100, but I dounf them on clearance after I fell in love with them–that luck!–for $30. My stacked bracelet was $80. I also fell in love with a neckalce by Kate Spade for $185 that I had to wear to my rehearsal. Had to. Silly, sure. But that’s the way it is.

    I really didn’t spend much, unless you count the wedding band and veil!

    I wore earrings I already had.  My something borrowed was my MILs pendant that I wore on a chain from one of my necklaces.  I bought some hair accessories.

    My dress had a belt, crystals and lace.  I kept the bling to a minimum.
