    I'm accessory challenged in real life.. now that I'm a bride, even more so!
    I really need some advice. I normally wear a diamond pendant necklace and studs every day. My grandmother lent me my great grandma's necklace to wear. Problem: it's gold and as I said in my alterations thread, it really doesn't match my dress.. I thought the dress had more champagne coloring to the thread, but it sparkles and is more silver.

    I won't be wearing a tiara, flower, or veil. I was looking for hair jewelry, maybe a filigree silver (sparkly) barrette for the back. (need to find this too) This is the closest thing I found that I like.

    I was thinking, short dangle earrings and a bracelet so I don't take away from the top of the dress. I never wear either of those items so might feel funny. I love this style of earrings, but not sure if it goes with my dress. If I don't wear a necklace, I should have larger earrings, right? What necklace goes with these (and my dress)?

    I'm wearing her necklace for our courthouse ceremony. and was thinking about pinning into my dress or in organza bag on my bouquet..

    Maybe I should wear it for the ceremony and then remove for pictures? The last thing I want to do is hurt my grandma's feelings and it's such an honor that she asked if I'd like to wear it.

    Ah... please help!

      I think grandma will be okay with you wearing the necklace to your legal and not the beach wedding. Just tell her that is what you are doing because your dress has silver in it, so it does not go. Be honest.

      You can take off the chain and get a pin and pin the pendant to the inside of your dress, if you want.

      I love the earrings, I say get them. Or, go for something a little more dangly, I love dangly (but I do not wear earrings, so I know how you feel, I just like the look on other people).

      I love both barrettes, but especially love the second one, the flower. I also think you should get Edyta's hair do.

      Get a glitzy bracelet as well, what way you have enough bling to not need a necklace.

      Or, if you want a necklace, I really think any style of necklace would look good, just make it the same colour and style as your earrings, silver with diamonds (fake of course). Does that make sense.

      I really do think you can't go wrong with the style of this dress and anything you choose, as long as its silver, you are right about gold not going so well. (At least that is how it looks from the pictures)

          I LOVE these hair clips - so cute! I think you could do just about anything with grandma's necklace - wear it to the legal, pin it to your pocket book, pin it to your shoes (stole that idea from Shelley).

          WOW, sorry that is so huge!!!

            I really like this barrette and it looks like it will go great with your dress!

            Those earrings look great! I think you can forego the necklace altogether if you want to. I have a similarly cut dress ... and am restringing my Mom's pearls in a choker-style. You could do something like that as well, with the silvertone freshwater pearls.

            How about wrapping your Grandma's necklace around the stems of your bouquet? I think that would look beautiful ... and it would still be visible for her to see.

              Ok. Shelley and anyone else up for the challenge.. can anyone find these cheaper than $35? Is that alot to spend on earrings? What do you think? (sorry it won't let me copy the photo). I like them because they aren't too long.
