You may not want to listen to me (I am a less is more kind of girl)- but I think you should go with one. And I love the what I assume is a kate spade bracelet (larger one).

Could you use your grandmother’s bracelet or another piece of her jewelery on your bouquet?

@Sking: what about one for  the ceremony (grandma) and one for the reception? You wouldnt want anything happening to it during the reception..hands flailing and all

Wear them both! It’s your wedding you do what you want to! And it can count for your something old or borrowed. I like them both!

@Sking: I have the necklace version of it. I couldn’t help myself.. it’s an amazing piece! But-I understand the dilemma.

I would wear your Grandmas for the ceremony and the other for the reception or even rehearsal dinner if it’s more formal. I would not wear them together bc it does seem a bit much.

I LOVE the bauble bracelet.  

Can you make an anklet out of your grandma’s?  Or have it threaded into your garter?

I ended up declining my grandma’s rhinestones b/c I wanted my jewelry to coordinate, and I decided that I wanted to pick out my own look for my wedding day and not have it be a mish-mash of what I thought others would like.  It wasn’t my most sentimental move, but there were other (IMO, more meaningful) ways in which we honored her memory during our ceremony.  Specifically, the officiant made a statement at the start of the ceremony.

@Melini: thats a great idea!

@OP: you could totally put it into your garter. My garter has rhinestones..i’ll attach a pic for some inspiration. And you could pass down your garter too 🙂

@Sking:  A jeweler could add a removable extender pretty easily.

Wear both!  I wear two bracelets all the time (actually have 3 on now) and will on my wedding day.  One arm will have a big statement piece and the other will have a simple pearl bracelet, which is the first Christmas Gift my Fiance gave me.  I’m also wearing the necklace he gave me for our second Christmas together and the diamond earrings he gave me for our 3rd Christmas.  They are all special to me and to him.  Definitely you should go for it!

If you decide to wear the one bracelet as an anklet, you can buy an extender chain at any bead store if you need the extra length.
