I got a bolero made for my dress, but now Im afraid if I wear a veil it will be too much. So I’ve resorted to a tulle birdcage veil with a flower hair pin. So… Do I wear a necklace or is that too much? Im contemplating a bracelet but i am not sure what kind? Pearl? My husband will be wearing a charcoal grey tie so I was thinking grey pearls to coordinate, (I will be wearing grey flats also)
What do you think I should do?
Sorry pics are a little dark and my dress wasnt laced up so I was awkwardly holding it up. I’ll include a pic of my full dress also

If you do wear a necklace, I’d keep it small and simple. The dress is fabulous on its own! And the birdcage veil is kind of it’s own statement, as well. You don’t need too much else, so anything more you add can be pretty simple. I think a bracelet would be nice, and it’s not “near” the veil, so it won’t detract from it.
Just my two cents. I am in no way a fashionista. 😉 Again, that’s a fabulous dress!!

Ya, I would just go with a bracelet. You could wear something blingy for your bracelet I think that would be pretty. Maybe a very simple necklace with a single stone. I personally wouldn’t go with pearls, but that’s just me..I think a little rhinestone would pop the look a bit. Idk, that’s just my two cents though!

@ScooterBride: Thank you! Im thinking no necklace since theres very little of my chest even showing. Maybe I should just leave it at that. I just have no jewelry restraint. Im a jewelry addict! But I don’t want to look like a tacky bride

I think a necklace would look lovely. If you wanted to go with grey (I like!) I wouldn’t go longer than a 16″ strand, or whatever length will hit your colar bone.

If you want necklace, then keep it simple, like a pearl pendant with silver chain… would be perfect.
Since you have a birdcage veil, how about a pair of simple pearl stud earrings, add some elegance to your whole face 🙂
