    I love the pop of color on the first one with your shoes! Beautiful.

      Sorry. It's the first thing I thought of (Aunt Flo) and I really think it's a bad idea.
      If you had it on the front of your skirt near your chest or even on the side, it would be fine, but anywhere near your backside and I'm afraid it would be a bad idea. Think of the pics too... best to get the red pop from something else. Like an amazing necklace or something. IMO

          I like the color. Surely with the sparkles around it people won't get the wrong idea...

            I have to say go with number 2. Coming from a photographers stand point while the red one is a good detail it's too distracting. In images from behind it will only look like you have something on your dress. And plus... it might cause some of your guests to stare at your behind during your ceremony....hahahaha!

              I say #2. The red one will look like a spot. I can just imagine a grandma walking up to you trying to "wipe" it off. Also, I think the red shoes and purse are enough. That could be because I had red shoes and a purse for my wedding... I just think if you have too many "accent" pieces with color on you, it will go from being an accent piece to more of a matchy/matchy theme deal.

                I voted for #2. I agree that the red stones may be better suited for earrings, necklace or bracelet.

                  thanks for all the feedback!
                  i am still leaning towards #1. the dress doesn't sit quite exactly the same on me and i don't think that anyone will think about aunt flow where the material gathers - that model is like 5'11 and i am 5'4 lol!

                  danielle - i hear your concern about distracting from pics -hhmmm need to think about that

                  thanks girls!

                      I voted for #1 also, even after reading all the comments. I think a little touch of color would just add a bit to it.

                      Alyssa, are they your shoes? I love them!
