Bridal accessories

Any recommendations on where to find affordable bridal accessories? I'm looking for a cool hairpiece and jewelry. The place I bought my dress only has ones that costs hundreds of dollars! I found purple sparkly shoes yesterday for some fun underneath the dress, but am stuck on everything else!

    I love purple! Can you post a picture of the shoes?

    Oh, and I would check e-bay and friends/family members.  I alreayd had two friends who are married offer up their hair pieces for me to wear.

    If you are comfortable ordering online, check out etsy.com.  They have so many things and they are reasonably priced.  I am ordering my hair flower clip from there.

    Here are the shoes. I only found two places in town that had any purple shoes, and the ones at David's Bridal did not fit well (my feet are wide in the toes so shoes that aren't strappy tend to squish my toes!). I was pleasantly surprised to find these at Payless Shoes!

    I will try... Etsy just overwhelms me with the sheer amount of stuff! I just searched for "bridal jewelry set" and got 14,339 results. I guess I just need to figure out more what I want, but the embellishment on my dress has pearls, rhinestones, crystals (That sounds bad, but I swear it's amazing) so it's hard to decide what to even look for!

    Your shoes are gorgeous! One of the etsy stores I used is this one (if that helps with your search at all...I know I was overwhelmed on there too, but ended up having a great experience with etsy overall).

    Thanks ladies, you guys are great! I posted on the "attire & accessories" board and got no useful information. I love shoe compliments & @FLsweetpea1979 thanks for the link to that store! Her combinations of the pearls and crystals will go perfect with my dress!

    Again I will recommend Etsy.... if you are looking for a flower... this is the link to the one I purchased on there... (Only in Ivory)


    I'm not doing a necklace, so no help there, but there again are what seem like millions on etsy...

    Macy's is having sale this weekend, if you find anything there you can get 20% off with the code SUPER starting tomorrow

    My earrings came from Nordstrom... I splurged a little ($75) on Michael Kors huggie hoops, but I'll wear them all the time after the big day... I hope this helps!!

    Oh I agree with everyone I am in love with Etsy! 
    I have purchased my hair comb and my veil. So far saving me over $100 from the one I saw in the store. I wanted a peacock comb, so I picked a theme and went with it! 

    I also got all my BM's gifts off of Etsy. 

    I still haven't found my jewelry yet. Not sure where I will purchase mine.

    So glad it helped! I got an earring/ necklace set and hair comb from that etsy store. My dress has a brooch with crystals and pearls on it so her stuff worked great for me too! I had a lot of fun  picking out my accessories!

    I highly recommend BCGirls on etsy. They make headpieces, veils, and a few necklaces & bracelets. If you need other jewelry they can get it for you too b/c they're a distributor for another company.

    I'd have to recommend Claire's or Icing in your local mall.
