    That jewlery is very pretty and if you have the money, it would be nice to have those pieces as keepsakes.  Personally, I knew I wouldn’t wear jewlery as fancy as I wore for my wedding everyday and didn’t have it in the budget to get something really authentic.  I bought a pair of earrings at the bridal salon that went really well with the dress in pearls and crystal.

    I would keep looking.  The necklace and earrings are pretty but they seem like something you could find at less expensive store.

    Jewelry is always considered a splurge for me as I have a tendancy to forget to accessorize.  My mom introduced me to Sorrelli (I had originally planned on borrowing my mom’s pearls) and it was perfect for my eventual look.  If you can afford your dream jewelry, that’s great.  I was not a person that could afford her dream jewelry, but I found a great runner up that I loved that worked out even better than I could have hoped for.

    You forgot on option. Bought the real thing, on sale 🙂

    I wouldn’t ever spend that much money on jewelry.. but if it’s something super important to you..

    and really, if that’s the exact look you want and you don’t want to pay that price.. who sits there during your wedding and determines if your jewelry is real or fake? Buy the faux version if you want the glam without the tag.

    I borrowed it all from mom and spent $90 on the bracelet. I didn’t have a big jewelry budget ($100) so I begged and borrowed. I’d rather spend the money on something I could wear more often…do you see yourself wearing the jewelry afterwards? I really really love that necklace. Would you be happy splurging on one piece and Faux-ing the other?

    I splurged on some (a necklace I was coveting SO badly!! – thankfully I found it on sale too), and saved on some (a great pair of earrings on etsy that were perfect AND cheap!).

    i splurged on jewelry since i’m more likely to wear that again than the dress or veil.

     The jewllery is beutiful, has anybody you know got something similer it could be your something borrowed, if not then shop around and see if there is anything less expensive that would go with your dress, if not and your heart is set on them then we are all allowed a little gift to ourselves once in a while. Any chance your man would get them for you as a gift on the wedding day??

    I splurged on a haute bride bracelet and nearly everyone at the wedding commented on it (and took numerous photos of it)!

    I had mentioned a couple times to friends and family that I wanted to wear simple drop pearl earrings with my dress.  My ever-so-sneaky husband (fiance at the time) purchased them for me for a combo Christmas/30th birthday gift, months before the wedding.  I love them!  Now my future SIL is going to wear them on her October wedding day, as her “something borrowed.”  It’s great to have a few nice pieces of jewelry in the family.
