Jewelry Help Please

Recommended Posts

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!

And I think Edyta's hair style will look PERFECT on you! I would definitely use her hair as inspiration!

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.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
