I’m trying to get my wedding look together. But I’m just loving more and more things and getting confused about what I want.
This is my dress.
First I wanted this necklace.
But then I started thinking about something like this. It could be my something old as well as my something blue.
But at the same time, I want a head piece.
I had wanted this headband, but in my wedding colors, for months. But now I’m not sure it matches my dress good enough. If I got it, it would be in lilac and light blue.
My mom wants me to wear something like this. Which would look good with my dress, but its just not very me.
But then I found this and I’m just in love with it. But its almost $200 and I just dont want to spend that much. =(
But if I did get this last one, would it be too much to wear one of the antique necklaces with it?
What would y’all bees do?

@allyfally: because of the detail on your bust, both of those neckalces are too bulky. Youll need something higer up and more delicate. your mom has good taste but if that isnt you I think you can find a hair peice thats affordable and cute…. are you foregoing a veil?

The last headpiece and the last necklace go very well together! Also, the first necklace and the first headpeice would go well together too. In my personal opinion, the middle necklace is a bit too much.
And if I had to choose between the last set together and the flower set together, I would choose the last set. It’s hard to tell just from the picture, but it seems like the flower necklace would be quite large and I think the large, flowy flowers would majorly compete with your gorgeous flowy dress. If they aren’t that large, then the flowers would go nicely, I think!

I think the necklaces are too much (also, if you buy them… do they really qualify as something old?), just go with a hairpiece. In this case, I think your mums suggestion is really nice – classy and it would work well with your dress.

@subtlebee: Do you have any necklace suggestions?
And I havent decided if I’m going to get a veil yet.
@Sunnyday278: Unfortunately the website that the flower necklace is at doesnt say how big the flowers are. So I cant tell if they’re huge or small.
@eocenia: I agree it would look good. I’m just not a big fan of it. Its so plain. And I would assume they would still be old. They’re from the 40s and the 50s.

@allyfally: WEll trying to stay with your aesthetic but also trying to go for a more subtle look i went vintage.
This style has flowers and blue but matches your dress without overpowering it
this one will go well with or without a veil or headpeice
I also suggest wearing anything you choose midway between the dress and your neck

@subtlebee: Oh, I actually love that first one. Where is it from?
I also just found this (from my old JTV wishlist of all places) and I quite like it. It matches my e-ring. I just dont know how well it would go with my dress.

3rd necklace 2nd headband, but i would try to find a simpler necklace you dont want to take away from the pretty detailing on your dress.

@allyfally: it was on ebay but it sold. I am sure you could find something similar though if you looks. that was the style in 1950’s.
Also depending on how big it is, it might work. You’d just have to style your accessories around it

@allyfally: hmmm yes that’s quite a lot of ambition… lol
Do you plan to have your hair up or down?
I agree with your mom to have more of a white headband because although you love your wedding colors, I think you’d do best to busy up the look with too much color.

@KimmySumShuga: I have no idea how I want my hair. Depends on what hair piece I get. lol. I would just feel weird without any color. I’m the brightest person I know. Haha.

@allyfally: oh honey, believe me I love color too! But I would be careful to keep it contained on your wedding day you know?
What about colored shoes?!
I loooove colored shoes because they are covered & subtle but still reflect the bride’s personality when she shows them off!

I would wear the blue necklace & nothing else but only if you wear your hair up. If your hair is down, I’d go with any one of the headpieces. Maybe make a poll?
@subtlebee: o0o! That other blue necklace is gorgeous too!

I agree with kimmy. If you have too much color going on it will take attention from your beautiful face. With all of the detail on your wedding dress I would say either no necklace or something very subtle. I would do some dangly earrings and maybe chuncky bracelet. I didn;t do a necklace due to the neckline on my dress. I also added a color bow to m my shoes to incorporate my colors.
