Accessories?

My wedding is two weeks from today, and I still have no idea what accessories I  am wearing. My dress has some crystals on it, and so does my veil, and I'm having a hard time deciding on how much other "bling" to wear. I usually just wear earrings and occasionally a necklace. Do any of you lovely ladies have any suggestions?

Here is my dress:

    How will you have your hair?

    Personally, I am a big fan of super dramatic, fabulous earrings with a more subdued, understated necklace... especially when the hair is up.... this is what I did (pics below)

    I was going to say something similart to Moncia.  A chain type necklace with a small touch of bling to compliment your other bling, but without adding too much!  Love those earings Monica!

    Thats along the lines I was thinking. Earrings are my favorite piece of jewelry and my hair will be up, so I'm all for big sparkly ones. Good idea with the simple chain necklace, I will start looking along those lines. Thanks for the tips!

    I love this dress! And Monica you're so pretty :)

    I posted a while back about a similar question, and my advice was along the lines of what PPs have already said. With the bare chest that comes with a sweetheart neckline, the best thing I can recommend is to accentutate your clavacles; see how Monica's simple necklace highlights her neck, breastbone and looks so dainty and feminine? Pair a simple, understated necklace (I'm personally a fan of a semi-choker style, not RIGHT on your throat but one that dips just a inch or two lower) with a killer pair of earrings. Here is picture of how I've rocked this look, at a gala for my internship back in December:

    Aww... thanks, ladies!!  Lorna, love the pic!!  That was totally the idea I was thinking for raes... blinged out earrings and a barely-there, but still awesome necklace to draw attention to the bustline, but not take away from anything.

    I know you are getting short on time, but White Aisle Jewelry (online)... link... http://www.whiteaisle.com/earrings_updated.htm
    has some gorgeous earrings and they are pretty reasonably priced.
