    My plan is to get a $29 hair comb from DB, a $34 necklace from Etsy, a $30 bracelet from Etsy, and $30 earrings from Etsy, though that may change slightly. Shoes were $65 but didn’t include them in the bling total.

    Necklace, Alexis Bittar: $570

    Earrings, Alexis Bittar: $320

    Shoes, Jimmy Choo wedges: $600

    Veil: $200

    2nd Necklace (lots of Amethyst and gold that I prob won’t wear, but love anyway!):$1,000

    All these pieces I’ll wear over and over again for the rest of my life, so they were investments.

    My veil was around $10 (coupon from AC Moore) and the tiara that I wore like a headband was on clearance for around $20. Coloriffics shoes were like $8 from Goodwill (new and everything). I think the little white purse was around $20. Can’t recall. But those are one-time wear items. Didn’t want to put the money there. As my entire wedding set came in well under $1000 total, I too wanted to make a sentimental investment into items I’d wear again for special occasions:

    $200 moissanite earrings

    $600 moissanite necklace

    $2000 moissanite tennis bracelet

    I think that’s it! I didn’t go overboard on accessories since my dress had a lot of beading and details.

    I spent more on my necklace and earrings than my dress.  Thoes are all the accessories I bought.

    My fiance’s mom bought my earrings for christmas ($68) and I am wearing my pearl bracelete my Fiance got me for my 21st b-day… and thats all. My dress comes with a sash, so no sash, and I haven’t figured out my hair piece, if I want one or not. and I don’t plan on spending more than $40 on my veil, one of my bm’s will probably be making it. 🙂

    I spent $120 on statement earrings and a matching bracelet. I think it was totally worth it!

    My Etsy earrings! 

    I’m wearing a necklace my grandfather gave me and my mom’s saphire/diamon 4×4 bracelet for the “something blue.”  I got my hair flower at WH/BM but know they have some great ones on etsy!

    I got diamond earrings and a diamond and sapphire bracelet a few years ago that I will be wearing, I think they were around $300. My fiance gifted me a matching necklace for valentines day, it was $1,300! My veil is $130. My heels are $100. My flip flops for the dancing are ones that I already own. My rhinestone hair pins were my grandma’s. The shocker for me was the generous gift from Fiance.

    My earrings and necklace cost me $8.99 and my veil cost $9. I got them both from ebay and they are a great quality too! I haven’t got my tiara yet. My wedding planner wants me to wait and she is going to take me to a store in Dallas to get one.
