Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. A tradition I simply can’t let go of! I must participate in this time-honored tradition, and get an item to fill each of these categories. I know I’m going out of order, but I’m starting today with something new…
And that something new is wedding-day accessories! Sparkly things? My favorite! OK, OK—I’ll calm down with the exclamation points, because I think you get my drift here. I love sparkle, and that’s what we’re talking about today.
Since I’m not revealing my dress and only gave away a little detail about my veil, I thought it may be more difficult to talk about accessories. But then I realized—everyone that I’ve spoken to (yes, including my lovely fiancé) knows that I don’t want a plain dress. Be it beading, sparkles, flowers, or ruffles, there is going to be detail in my dress. So picture in your mind a dress with details (I wish I could be more specific!) and then look at these beautiful accessories…
*Let me preface this by saying I do have more than just one hole in my ears; however, for the big day, I just plan to put studs in all of them except the bottom holes.

First up: these beauties by Etsy seller ElegantChicJewel. They were the first thing that caught my eye, and I’ve had them favorited for quite some time. Something about them just screams bridal to me! I think it’s because I normally don’t wear very dramatic earrings, so I’m leaning that way for the big day.

Next up, from another (but equally wonderful!) Etsy seller, AllureByU, are these gorgeous earrings. In contrast to the first pair, these stand out but aren’t quite as big, which makes me think that they may also not be as heavy. Definitely something to consider since I’ll be wearing them all day long!

Now these pretties, from Etsy seller (are you sensing a pattern here?…) DesignByKara. These ones seem to be the perfect middle ground between pair one and pair two. They have a little extra bling compared to my second choice, but will still be lighter than my first choice. And best of all? They’re only $49 for the set!
So here’s my something new—I think regardless of which pair I choose, they’ll look perfectly understated since I’m wearing my hair down…but regardless of how they’ll look, I do (unfortunately) have to choose between the three pairs.
If you were me, which ones would you choose (based on the super vague details I gave you about my dress and veil, of course!)?
