@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.

@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

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.

@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.
