    TOO MUCH!!! About $100 on my custom Etsy bracelet, $60 on Etsy earrings, and $50 on a comb. No veil. $100 on red shoes from Zappos- TOTALLY worth it 😉

    I think i went a little overboard on some of my accessories, here is my breakdown:

    shoes: $30.00 (on sale at DSW + rewards certificate + coupon)

    Necklace: $225 (the ordered this on-line, and had it set in an antique gold finish)

    (Still undecided about my clutch~ Ive seen plenty that i like, upwards of $80, or I can use one I have already that match my shoes anyway)

    Gold Clutch: (not exact but similar to this one) ~straight from my closet = FREE!

    Earrings: (my something OLD) 1 ct diamond stud earrings that were my moms = FREE!

    Cathedral length veil with swarovski crystal accents throughout: $270 (ouch)

    Hair piece: Ok- so I bought 3 this one for $50

     

    $50

    or

    $50.00

    (so I spent $150 on all three hair pieces, 2 of which i wont need, but  plan on selling atleast the 2 i dont wear and i spent a fraction of the cost for 3 hair pins/combs compared to the ones the lady was trying to sell me at the bridal salon $400-$1000 ~ um, NO THANKS!)

    No Sash/belt: $0

    Brooches: $500

    I am carrying a brooch bouquet and I completely splurged on it…BUT I am beyond EXCITED about it!!!  and to me, It was worth every penny! You can see this beauty sparkling from a mile away! The pictures don’t really do it justice but it will give you an idea.

    Garter Set:  Still undecided but I will be spending between $30 and $40 depending on which set I choose

    Fur wrap: (I foolishly bought it at the bridal boutique) $150

    All together I will have $1375 (and I still need to purchase under garments and have my dress altered) 🙁

    So far I’ve spent:

    $100 on shoes

    $60 on veil (found a discounted one that mom and I will add crystals and stuff to later)

    I’m looking at:

    $600 for necklace, earrings and bracelet together

    $50 for garter (specialty garter in college collors)

    Not sure how much for hair pins
