I have posted a pic of my dress below. I just wanted to get a few opinions on accessorizing.
Here's a little backstory: My mom has been pretty hands-off since my engagement and didn't even go dress shopping with me, so my FMIL and SIL (who is also my MOH) have been stepping in to do all the typical "mommy/sister/daughter" things with me. It's all good, I have never been a very "mommy do things with me" type of girl, and I actually found it kinda odd that FMIL and SIL had planned so many girly type things. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE them both dearly and it means so much to me that they love me enough to do all these things with/for me, I just never expected it since my own mom isn't very interested in any of the planning a wedding experience.
FF to Thanksgiving...FMIL and SIL were acting kind of strange when we returned from dinner and I was told to "stay put." I was confused when they brought me a beautifully decorated bag with 3 little boxes and notes attached to each inside. I was thinking "what is this, it's not my birthday...it's not Christmas...hmmm." I opened each box and inside were a pair of gorgeous pearl/diamond accent drop earrings, a single strand pearl bracelet with a little blue ribbon tied around the clasp, and a little diamond solitaire pendant. My something old (the pendant was FMIL's engagement ring re-set as a necklace), something new (earrings), borrowed (the bracelet), and blue (the ribbon). I was FLOORED!
Of course I want to wear all of these things, but I was not planning on a necklace bc my dress is very heavy on bead work at the top and I wanted to get a few opinions from all you lovely ladies
(The necklace is 16" with a 1/2 carat round solitaire diamond)
