I can’t stop buying earrings for the wedding.
When purchasing my dress I decided that my only jewelry would be a bracelet and earrings. I already knew exactly what I wanted for my bridal bracelet and I’m having one custom made (can’t wait to show the hive once it’s done!), but my earrings…well that’s a whole other story. I’m not exactly sure what I want and as a result I’ve already bought five pairs. And I may not be done.
If only I had five weddings. Or 10 ears.
These from Ann Taylor were the very first pair I purchased while out holiday shopping. I love the shape and all the sparkles, but as the rest of my bridal look started to take shape, the less these earrings seem to work.
Next I spotted these stunners by Kenneth Jay Lane in a Gilt sale.
I was a little nervous since they were final sale, but since I had store credit from a prior return I bit the bullet and clicked “buy.” These earrings are awesome, but when I brought them with me for my first dress fitting it became clear that they were too big. I love me some big jewelry, but my bridal look seems to call for something more demure. Not studs, but definitely not big.
So armed with a Nordstrom gift card I went back on the earring prowl, this time searching for something smaller. I came home with the next three pairs:
Clusters by Tarnish:
Round small dangles, also by Tarnish:
I’m going to bring these three pairs to my next fitting, and return any that don’t make the cut.
I’m still not convinced I have found my wedding earrings, so I remain on the hunt. I recently found these beauties, and I think they’d look great on my wedding day—but they are clip-ons and I really rather have pierced earrings.
Here are a few more I’m thinking about picking up to test out at my next fitting:
See, I have a problem.
Which earrings are your favorite? Did you have any problems narrowing down your bridal accessories?
