I totally know how you feel! It can be so hard to choose which combo of accessories. But, it really sounds like you are doing too much. They are called “accessories” for a reason (they are supposed to compliment your look…not BE your look). I think it’s a mistake to wear all the the things you listed. If you do it all, nothing will stand out as special, and ALL of the accessories will lose their special-ness when worn together. ANd not to mention that you will get lost amongst the bling. You want YOU to stand out, not the accessories.

Less is more! Pick 1-3 key pieces you’d like to showcase.

Hope that helps!

I’m hoping to ask Future Sister-In-Law and a friend for advice on this one too. My dress has a lot of detail on top, but I did borrow a necklance/earring set from a friend that is absolutely gorgeous. I originally didn’t want a strapless dress so it feels nice to feel somewhat “covered” for me. I want to wear a veil as well but was ambivalent about adding a tiara/headpiece. A family friend brought me hers from her wedding –it’s beautiful, but I’m worried it might be too much. On the other hand, I also feel like it’s really important to her that I wear it so thus my conflict…

I did downgrade my veil (was going to go with one with crystal/rhinestones, but then I ended up going with one that is plain with a pencil edge). I was also going to bling out my flowers so now trying to decide if I should go with what I started (and the tone set by our invitations that were a little blingy) or if I should try to keep it simpler.

So not sure I have suggestions for you, but I empathize with your feelings on the matter. I would say to go with what looks and feels best to you. And maybe try taking a picture both ways and see what you think.

whats the point in wearing a bun cover and a wrap over it? won’t the wrap cover the other thing?
