I was not planning on wearing a bracelet, but got the idea to ask my grandma if she had a bracelet I could borrow “my old and borrrowed”, and she said she had the perfect bracelet. Last night she said she couldn’t find it, but what she found instead was “perfect and you can’t say NO”. She told me it was her mothers old still ticking wrist watch which is platinum with diamonds, and that it would match my outfit. I really don’t like the idea of a watch since I’ve never worn a watch, let alone on my wedding day. (BTW-she is more like a mom and quite young at heart and has helped plan this whole wedding). She’s even having it “fixed and cleaned”. She said the watch head is about a dime shape. I don’t know what to do, as I don’t want to disappoint her, but I really don’t want to wear a watch walking down the aisle.

Ultimately its your decision, but IMO wearing a watch can actually be kind of cute if you think about it. Think about it like you would be able to know that in X amount of time you get to be married! Also you said its small. If you are truly against it and had planned on not wearing anything then maybe you could appease your grandma by wearing it at the reception?

Have you seen it yet? I would at least look at it before you say no. I actually wore my great-grandmothers “watch” at my wedding but it looked more like a bracelet. It is an antique and very dainty…you may be surprised when you actually see it. I got many compliments for wearing something so unique.

You ladies are great! Making me think twice. I did hold my tongue when speaking with my g-ma. I told myself I’d wait and see, bc you are right. It might be small enough. I won’t see it for another few weeks. 🙂 But thank you for the encouragement!

Your grandma’s watch sounds REALLY nice, like a bracelet essentially!
My mom has a VERY similiar one with a very tiny face on it–it’s all gold with diamonds and everything. It’s just gorgeous and it’s really stylish and classic.
I wish i had a picture for you, but wait until you see it first. My mom’s watch is really more like a bracelet…that tells time =]. It’s very dainty, just like one of the PP mentioned.

I wore this exact kind of watch on my wedding day! It looked like a pretty bracelet.

I’m not sure how the band is, but if it doesn’t have a noticeable hook/clasp, you might could turn the watch to where the face is underneath on the inside of your wrist? That way the pretty band of the watch is what would be most seen.

I’m not wearing a bracelet, but am wearing my grandmother’s antique watch instead (as my something old). It’s white gold and has some diamond decoration. The actual watch face is very tiny, so it looks more like a bracelet. I love that part of my grandma will be there with me as I walk down the aisle.
