    what does the neckline of the dress look like and will your hair be up or down?

    I like number one because the earlobe part looks better than the wire in earring number 2. Wires have a way of twisting.

    I'm having the same problem.  I like them both.  They are from Etsy, so I emailed the seller and asked if I could purchase both and return one because it's hard to decide without seeing them in person.  The seller has a no return policy.  Hopefully there will be some flexibility.

    I love them both but I think I like number 2 just a little better. I see earrings like the first one all the time so I like that the second is alittle more unique

    Love your dress - you look great - I like the style of #2 better.  The hair style also would be beautiful.  Are you doing a flower as well?

    I would pick 2 because it doesn't look like you have pearls in your gown & like that it's more understated than #1

    </div><div>Thanks so much! That was when it first came in, I haven't had any fittings yet and the top is HUGE on me- the bottom, not so much.  I'm a pear shaped girl. :)  Yes, I'm doing a flower.  I have to order a hairpiece because my hair is getting long but it's not very thick.  When my hairdresser pulled it back last time I got a haircut, I told her it reminded me of a squirrel's tail. :(  Not much to work with so I'm hoping the piece makes it look much better.</div><div>
    </div><div>Now I want to see if the seller can change #2 for me.  It would be great if instead of the wire, she can put a post at the top of the design so they don't hang like that.  I could probably do it myself.  I'm liking #1 less and less as I look at it, but #2 is a little smaller than I wanted (I think)</div>

    I would definitely ask to do this. I love the second pair, but I think someone mentioned the wire bending. I also like the post of the first one better.

    That is a tough choice. Both are great! Either one would look great with your dress, very pretty by the way. I think if you are going for more of a dramatic look with your jewelry then I would go with #1. It also depends are you doing a necklace as well or just earrings? I'm not doing a necklace so I plan on having more elaborate earrings.

    jchristal - I have the same problem re: pear shaped - I swear my bottom half is at least 2 sizes bigger than my top so I had the same problem with the top of my dress as well.  Thank goodness for good tailors! You look fabulous though.

    I wish I could make up my mind.  I hope the etsy seller lets me see both.  I'm not wearing a necklace so I did want to go big on the earrings, but maybe since I'm not wearing a veil and and doing a sizable flower #2 will be OK?  At least I really like 2- better than not liking any!

    Who's the seller? I really like #2 and may want to get a pair for myself.

    Thanks everyone.  I looked at the description again and read that the metal on both of these is a dark silver color.  Looks kind of goldish to me, that's what I was hoping for.  I don't know if either would look right with the Ivory of my dress.  It photographs a lot lighter than it is in person.
