My BM Jewelry Arrived

Recommended Posts

Ok- I have to say that I have a starfish necklace that I have had since I was like 15 or so. I love it and wear it occassionally. I have also had a sand dollar pendant that I sometime wear instead of the starfish- I've had that since I was a little girl. :)

 

So what I'm meaning to say- these aren't things I have just because I had a DW and got obsessed with all things beach related. :)

 

I think the earrings are overkill though. I don't really like matchy matchy jewelry though.

Well, tuff titties for you BM's if they dont like them. You put thought into this and I do honestly think they'll like them- b/c they are adorable.

I dont think I'd wear the earrings again, but just b/c they arent the style I wear. I'm trying to picture it together, with the dress, hair done, whole nine- and I'm not sure if wearing AND necklace might be too much going on. Know what I'm saying, I dont want to offend you. I think maybe a simple pair of studs would look great with that necklace, anything alil more simple ORR you could even do a smaller pair of those same exact earrings- tiny ones.

I TOTALLY agree here! They should be thankful you bought them anything!

ME TOO!

Honestly I love the necklaces. I just ordered my BM's starfish necklaces yesterday and plan to give them to them with a card that has the symbolism of starfish.

I agree with Rachel in that the necklaces AND earrings would be too matchy matchy.

Thanks!!! and i think you are right about needing 18 inch chains since their dresses are strapless.

My BMs havenâ€t seen the jewelry but they HATE the idea of starfish jewelry and wonder will they ever be able to use it again.Click the image to open in full size.

 

So I assume you had ordered this stuff for them and afterward found out that they don't like the idea?

I just saw a really cute starfish necklace online that I was thinking of getting for my 2 sisters (BMs). It's white gold and diamonds. Now I'm second guressing myself too!

 

IMHO I love the necklace. I do not like the earrings. I think they are overkill. I think you need to choose either flashy earrings or necklace, but not both. Studs would be ok.

So I guess I'm in agreement with everyone here. I think your BMs are crazy and they should totally wear the necklaces. And they will probably keep wearing them afteward too.

 

BUT if YOU aren't crazy about them AND have spent your money on them, then return them and get something else for your BMs.

 

Can you post a pic of the BM dresses? Maybe we can help suggest something else for them?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
