What are most brides going to wear? I’ve been told the rule of thumb (and I agree for the most part) is that you shouldn’t wear a bling sash with your dress AND a necklace AND earrings AND a headpiece. It’s just too much. So what are you gong with? Sash and earrings and no necklace? Sash and headpiece? Necklace and earrings but no sash? Show me your pics!

I’m wearing necklace & earrings, RHR, and tiara.
My girls have very simple necklace & earrings.
I also purchased matching bracelets & rings for all of us as a gift.

@jenilynevette: +1! It’s my day to be as fancy as I want:

I wore teeny tiny earrings (white gold in the first holes, rose gold in the second holes), little ball studs. I also wore a rose gold lightning bolt on a white gold chain (very small, all of it). The two-tone theme was for the white gold engagement ring and rose gold wedding band.

I am someone who loves balance so I wore a medium sized beaded hair clip, a pair of statement earings and sparkly but understated bracelet. The statement earings were the focal point of my look. No necklace because I had lacey sleeves.

@lindseyl06: LOL exactly!
I personally believe that as long as you dont have huge lewerly going on everywhere, you can pull off each piece, and it depends on the look you are going for. Certain styles of dresses that do have a lot going on probably wouldn’t benefit from all of the above, but…if you look at certain designers photos at times you will see lots of bling on a dress with a statement necklace.
This is where I personally get confused lol but in the end I don’t think people at the wedding will be critiquing your dress and accessories or lack there of that much.
I’m wearing a triple crystal headband (single strands in a row), smaller earrings (crystal studs about 1/2″ in diameter) and a 2″ crystal/ribbon sash (probably just for reception on the sash because my mom is making me a chiffon lace bolero and that with the sash would be too much).
I am also wearing lace gloves during the reception that match my dress (although I’ve had people on WB tell me its too much, but whatever its my day and I think they will look awesome lol ).
I have not decided on bracelet or not , but I’m about 100% certain I will wear no necklace. I rarely wear a necklace IRL even when I go out, its just not me so that coupled with not wanting to overpowering my look was my deciding factor.

I think I’m going with
- Crystal headband (the statement piece)
- Small studs
- Simple Pendant necklace
- Plain satin sash
- Simple, delicate bracelet
Although another option is
- Nothing in hair
- Larger crystal earrings
- No necklace
- Beaded sash
- Simple, delicate bracelet
My dress is organza which I feel photograps beautifully, but looks kinda dull in person. So I’m not 100% sure how to play it up.

I am really puzzling over this as well, waiting til my dress comes in but I think sometimes less is more, however it really depends on your personality. At this point I am leaning to statement earrings,small bracelet (probably pearl) and a small haircomb. I am wearing a fingertip mantilla and no sash..(although I bought one on Etsy and decided not to use it

I think that you should wear whatever suits your tastes :).
I had a bracelet, earrings, and a headpiece (that sat on the back of my head so it couldn’t be seen from the front). I wasn’t planning on wearing a necklace because my dress had embellishments that went up one shoulder but my husband gave me one as a wedding gift. It was a very simple diamond and white gold necklace so I didn’t feel like it was too much :).

@csperry2: yes, this exactly!
I have zero plans to wear a necklace, but if my mom walks into the dressing room when I’m getting ready and presents me with a necklace that has been handed down through generations…I’ll wear it fashion statement or not (after i’m done blotting the tears in my eyes of course lol)

@Burtongirl: Here is what I told a previous bride with the question…. I think it all depends on your style. I tend to heavily accessorize on a daily basis so I will try to be doing that on my wedding day without trying to go over the top…For brides who dont normally wear alot of jewelry I can definitely see where there could be too much. Here is what I will be wearing…
It is not letting me post the jewelry pics so I’m going to start another post below!!!

IMO I feel it’s your day so however you envision yourself to look on the big day is what you should do. I wore a bracele, earrings necklace and a hair comb. And I don’t think it was too much at all. Here are some pics.
