Dressing Up the Dress

Remember when I introduced my dress and said I was excited to make it my own? Well this post is just about that! I also posted about shoes and whether or not I should splurge for expensive heels or go with a simple sandal. This girl is still undecided! But today let’s talk about wedding jewelry.

I’ve seen a lot of pictures lately with necklaces that look something like this, and they kind of make me swoon. Especially the ones with birdcage/short veils because that’s what I’ll be wearing!

Because the dress is so simple, I think I could get away with a bigger necklace, although maybe not something with quite that much bling—even though I love them. I’m thinking a chunkier necklace that still fits the whole casual theme, maybe even something in coral.

I think this image says it best. Look at her—she’s stunning. I’m absolutely loving the double strand with the hint of color that matches her sweater. Umm, can anyone find me a coral sweater, please? And then let’s have the weather be cold on my wedding day!

This is a short post because I really don’t have anything else to say! You can say it for me: What do you think I should wear? Go with a larger necklace or stick to a traditional string of pearls or pendant? What kind of wedding jewelry did you wear?

    J. Crew has some cute coral jewelry right now but no cardigans.

    @Mrs. Bracelet: I love the classic pearl necklace. I think my version for the wedding could be the classic pearl necklace with a fun twist. It could work, right?

    @Miss Squirrel: I’m scared of big necklaces!! I never feel like I can pull them off… I really need to get out of my comfort zone more often 😉

    @Kit_Kath: Yay glad I could provide more inspiration! Go to the “A Low Country Wedding” site, they have a bunch more pictures 🙂

    @courtoni: That’s a super sweet gift! I’m a little nervous about it, but I just need to throw on my dress and layer a couple necklaces that I have now and see how it looks 🙂

    @Meredith: Oh this is beautiful! Close to what I’m looking for, I need to hunt around more!

    @Brooklyn55: Oh I remember you saying you were having a more formal coral & navy wedding. GOOD CALL on the Old Navy coral section! Love it! Tell me if you find any coral flats… I might be looking for some. Either than or casual sandals I can put a coral accent on.

    @Mrs. Toadstool: I don’t think I’m brave enough to contrast colors like that, but doesn’t she look amazing in that picture? Love it!

    @courtoni: I know :/ But Ann Taylor Loft has some gorgeous cardigans… I had to check it out after @Brooklyn55‘s recommendation!

    @Miss Lemur: oh yes Ann Taylor Loft is a good option. I think I got 6 J Crew cardigans for Christmas this past year so I don’t need anymore.

    This is the link for the necklaces:

    @courtoni: Thanks for the link! I really love those! I think I’d like something with one or two coral flowers on two strands of pearls maybe?

    I need to check eBay too. I bet I can find a good brand name coral cardigan on there if I look around enough.

    I think a chunky coral necklace would add such a fun punch of color to your look, but I love the look of those sparkly necklaces too! I don’t think you can go wrong with either type!
