Even though our wedding is still 6 months away, I am so excited about the upcoming Big Day!  Heck, I have my wedding gown, my veil, my shoes and now my wedding accessories that I got from a local jewelry store.  I even have a few wedding outfits planned for our honeymoon cruise.  I cannot wait to marry my best friend – one of the best men I know!

It actually happened when I was with one of my bridesmaids who was picking up her dress.  I was waiting for her to change and headed over to the jewelry section.  There wasn’t a huge selection, but I did find some pieces that caught my attention.  The first necklace I chose was pretty on the rack, but when I tried it on, it just didn’t do it for me.  It didn’t really go with my wedding gown and wasn’t my favorite.  I knew it wasn’t the one!

The second necklace I tried on was gorgeous!  It was perfect with my dress (cut similar to my wedding gown).  I loved how the necklace was layered and draped across my chest.  It wasn’t too much or too little – it was perfect!  And it was within my budget – woo hoo!

Then I found a pearl bracelet that went perfectly with the necklace!  It has a little bit of bling but doesn’t detract from my wedding gown.  It looks really good with my french manicured nails too – ha ha!

The earrings I bought are dangly earrings, but I’m still not 100% sold on them.  I was at first, but then one of my bridesmaids suggested I wear Pearl Stud Earrings.

What do you think?  Should I go with dangly or studs?

    I like the necklace and bracelet that you picked. I like your dress. It is so pretty. But I would opt for stud earrings for your wedding. It is much simpler, but I think it goes with your jewelry that you have picked. But, if you go dangly, I would love to see what pair you picked.

  2. Helen says:

    Love the choices, nice job, very pretty!!!!

  3. Since the necklace you chose is a little bit more attention capturing I think you should wear pearl studs so it doesn’t take away from the necklace. If you wear dangly earrings people’s attention might be confused as to which piece of jewelry to focus on.

    Love your bling choices!

    Those are all such amazing pieces of jewelry and so beautiful! There is nothing more stunning than a bride on her wedding day!

  6. vickie couturier says:

    they are all beautiful and whatever you choose will be great

  7. Barb Stewart says:

    Shannon, I think that you should go with the pearl studs! They would be pretty and not distract from your hair and face that day!

  8. Debbie Welchert says:

    The jewelry you picked is so pretty and will go with your pearl studs. You are going to make such a beautiful bride.

  9. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I like the idea of studs – especially since you will have other jewelry to focus on. You must be getting so excited – six months is going to go by fast 🙂

  10. I think it all depends on how you are going to wear your hair. If you are going to wear it down go with studs, up go with dangly. Although you really can’t go wrong either way. 🙂

  11. Cynthia R says:

    I absolutely love the necklace and the bracelet, I think your bridesmaid might be right about the ear rings. they don’t look bad or anything, it’s just your necklace and bracelet are pretty and ornate enough they don’t need ornate ear rings as well.

  12. Jenn says:

    So pretty! I’m a dangly kind of girly, but in this case I think you should go with studs.

  13. Honestly I think studs or dangly would be pretty! Love the other jewelry you picked out as well.

  14. Jaime says:

    I wore dangly earrings because my hair was pulled up. I don’t know if that helps you decide, though. 🙂

  15. Pam says:

    I love that necklace! It looks great with the cut of the gown. I like the dangle earrings, but pearl studs would be beautiful too.

  16. Felicia says:

    Those are beautiful choices. I think I would go with studs.

  17. That second necklace is definitely my favorite – so pretty! I would go with studs since you have a longer, more busy necklace.

  18. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I would do studs so that you do not look too blinged out!! You want your collarbone and dress to shine!

  19. Go for the dangly! 😉 I wore vintage cocktail jewelry from ebay. I wanted a touch of glamour but a vintage look. Love your choices above.

  20. Amanda says:

    Go for the dangly! Love all of the pieces you are looking at. So much fun!

  21. Shell says:

    Such pretty finds. I like the studs- so classic.

  22. Oooh, I love that bracelet. It has the perfect amount of bling 🙂

  23. Wow it’s all beautiful. I can’t pick 🙂 Congrats on your big day!

  24. Love the choices! The necklaces are beautiful. I’d go for dangly earrings. They just seem glam.

  25. Those pieces are really beautiful. And so are you, miss bride-to-be!

  26. That jewelry looks really nice. Your husband is a lucky guy. He’s marrying a beautiful bride. Congratulations!

  27. Chrysa says:

    So pretty! It’s a tough choice between the dangly and the studs, but I think I would go with the studs.

  28. Christie says:

    I would stick with studs with a statement necklace like that. Plus you want folks atring at your dress 🙂

  29. Amanda says:

    I love the dangly! They are both very pretty though!

  30. That’s really great jewelry. It’s sufficiently substantial for a wedding, but it’s not gaudy.

  31. Tracey says:

    The pieces you chose are beautiful. They will compliment your wedding dress for sure.

  32. Rosey says:

    I think if your hair’s up you should go with dangly, and if it’s down go with studs. Or vice versa, hahaha. Sorry to be no help at all.

    I do love that pearl necklace though, it’s absolutely stunning with the dress.

  33. Oh gosh, If your hair is up dangly for sure… All are so beautiful, I’m sure whichever you choose would be amazing!

  34. Looks amazing. I am a very simple person so studs are a great way to decorate without distracting.

  35. Lisa says:

    Those are gorgeous pieces! I really love the bracelet!

  36. I love dangly earrings, I always feel weird when I wear studs. Beautiful jewelry and congratulations!

  37. Mellisa says:

    You look gorgeous. I don’t think you could have picked out better pieces of jewelry.

  38. Melinda says:

    i would keep the earrings more simple. you can still go dangly but maybe shorter like a teardrop

  39. Liz Mays says:

    If you wear your hair up, go dangly! I’m so excited for you!

  40. Oh I love the bracelet! I can’t decide which necklace is my favorite though.

  41. I’m gonna say studs. All eyes should be on YOU, not your jewelry. I note for understated and elegant. However… get the dangles for another occasion!

  42. I would go with studs, but that’s just my personal style preference. You look so beautiful! Congrats again!!

  43. Jennifer says:

    I definitely think the pearls are the way to go. They look so classy and perfect with your dress.

  44. If you’re not 100% sold on this definitely consider something else, or ask your bridesmaids to stop giving your their opinions, lol.

  45. mary says:

    I LOVE the dangly jewelry – beautiful. You will make a beautiful bride

  46. Gorgeous jewellery. I think your should wear studs as they will compliment the other pieces that you have selected. You are going to be a gorgeous bride.

  47. Chrysa says:

    How fun! I love the dangling earrings! Good luck with the rest of the wedding plans.

  48. Cute! I say dangling earrings.

  49. OMGosh it’s all so pretty! I love the dangly earrings best, so pretty!

  50. kristin says:

    Very pretty styles! Those earrings are wonderful.

  51. Mary says:

    If it were myself, i would go with the studs since you already have the dangling necklace. I think a soft pair of pearls would look beautiful. Once you find the earrings let us see them too! I loved your choices of jewelry.

  52. Sarah L says:

    I really like the bracelet and necklace. I thing that pearl studs would go well.
