There are so many accessories from which to choose, that I find myself overwhelmed. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, headpieces, veils, sashes, shrugs…. On top of that, many dresses come with their own “bling,” and that can compete with all the rest.
My dress is fairly simple – it has one cluster of rhinestones at the side of the waist. There is no beading at the sweetheart neckline. I do plan to wear a simple tulle shrug, mainly to camouflage upper arms I’m not fond of. Is a necklace, earrings, AND some sort of headpiece too much?
What do you think? When does it all become TOO much and begin to look overdone instead of elegant?

I think a necklace, earrings and headpiece is too much. I’d do away with the headpiece or if you must do all of the above make sure they are very simple otherwise it’ll clash.

I would ditch the necklace and just do earrings and headpiece… that way you can either do big earrings/small headpiece or big headpiece/small earrings. The shrug will take up enough room to where you probably wouldn’t want a necklace.

It all depends on proportions. If you have small, simple jewelry (say, diamond or pearl stud earrings and a pendant on a chain) you can do necklace, earrings, and headpiece and not have it be overwhelming. If you want a so-called “statement” necklace or dangly chandelier earrings, then it’s a good idea to scale back some of the other elements.
