I’m getting married on September 3rd and trying to pick my bridal earrings. It’s hard to decide just by looking at them online as I feel like I’d need to see them in person and try them on. So I’m hoping you can give me your opinions about the earrings below and I’m also including a picture of my dress. As a side note, I showed these to my future mother-in-law (who is the sweetest person I know) and she said that these all look tacky in her opinion and maybe I should wear the simple pearl earrings she gave me as a birthday present. I love my pearl earrings, but I just want something more bold and glamarous to go with my sparkly dress. What do you guys think? Thanks so much!!!

wear the pearls for the rehearsal dinner (and play them up) and a blingy pair for the wedding!

I like them all, but the third pair most. I dont think any of them is tacky or too much. Any of them would be great with your dress!

Oh my the earrings you posted would all match your dress beautifully… I think the 1st pair would be PERFECT =)

I love them all! The third pair really stand out though!
@elliestan: I second this!

First off, your dress is absolutely gorgeous! You look great.
And I think the earrings you’re looking at are perfect- either one. I think you need something blingy, formal and sparkly to match the dress, but not too gawdy and big. The size on the model looks like they would work very well. But maybe the 1st ones since they appear a bit smaller?
My dress is fairly similar, actually- in that it has detailed silvery beading. I think I’m going to do the same as you. No necklace, simple but sparkly drop earrings and maybe a bracelet 🙂

Thank you all so much for your suggestions and kind words!!! I love elliestan’s idea of wearing the pearls to the rehearsal dinner and picking a more blingy pair for the wedding 🙂

@September29: Whoops I just realized there were 3 pairs… not 2. I thought 1 and 2 were the same!
But I’d say number 1 or 2, depending on the size

@September29:That’s wonderful that our dresses are similar! I agree with you – I think I’ll pass on wearing a necklace since the upper part of the dress has intricate beading work on it and I’ll go with earrings and a bracelet. It’s getting close, I’m so excited!!!

I think I’m going to order #1 and 2 and then see which one I like better in person and (hopefully) will be able to return the other pair. By the way, here are the shoes I ordered:
I’m excited they’ll be here tomorrow so I can try them on.
