Does anyone else feel like they could use a stylist? I feel like it is harder to figure out my entire bridal look than it was to find my wedding dress.
True, I have plenty of time to think of accessories before the wedding, but they have been on my mind lately. What accessories should I choose that will all complement the dress, will go together, and yet not be over the top? Ideally I would like to pick jewellery that I would wear again too. Pearls are always a classic choice but I’m not sure if I want a standard string of pearls. I am also in the process of making a hair fascinator with a vintage rhinestone brooch in the center. The flower is a big statement and I don’t want to over accessorize!
Here is what I’ve picked up already:
The beautiful pearl cobblestone bracelet from J.Crew. A pearl bracelet sprinkled with rhinestones will match some of the detailing on my dress perfectly.

Here are the necklace choices I need your help with! What about this pearl and rhinestone lovely from luxedeluxe?

I think the necklace is beautiful but I’m worried that it would be something I wouldn’t wear all that often. I’m also worried it will be a bit much between my bracelet and hair flower as well.
My mom has a necklace I can borrow. It is a really simple pendant consisting of a pearl inside a gold cage. This necklace was a gift from her mother for my mom’s wedding. It was the necklace my mom wore when she married my dad! *tear!* I think my mom is a little sad that I have proclaimed that I’m not wearing a veil (as otherwise I could wear the veil my grandmother made for her) so this is a wonderful way to incorporate a little “something old, something borrowed.”
The only thing is the necklace is gold and all of my other accessories are silver.
Last up, I have a few necklaces that I already own that I could wear. Maybe my Tiffany heart pendant, although truth be told, I wear this one every day. Maybe my diamond pendant? Or otherwise I have a small and simple pearl pendant.
I’m leaning towards wearing my own pearl pendant, but what do you think? Which option is your favourite? Do you have any other jewellery suggestions?
