Saturday, I checked another item of the wedding "to do" list.
I purchased the earrings I will be wearing with on the BIG day.
I have decided that I will be wearing earrings, a bracelet, and my rings on our wedding day - no necklace, because with the dress, I think that would be too much.
My search for the perfect earrings was all done online and with the help of my favorite, Pinterest, to save my top choices.
Here are the earrings that made the final cut.
Adriana Orsini Cushion-Cut Framed Earrings
Nadri Faceted Crystal Drop Earrings
Lora Paolo Large Cubic Zirconia Earrings
Nadri Princess Earrings
I wanted "drop" style earrings that stood out, but weren't TOO heavy.
Also, while I'm a serious pearl girl, I had an opportunity to try on earrings that incorporated pearls versus a straight-diamond look with my dress (at one of the bridal stores), and I decided no pearls for the earrings.
Call me crazy, but they just didn't look right with the dress.
So those were the ACTUAL options I was considering, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I spent some time drooling over these little gems...

I mean really, the picture does not do those incredible earrings justice.
I told the sales lady, who was all to eager to pull those guys out, that I would not be spending more than the cost of my wedding dress on earrings...unless I suddenly had some seriously fancy balls to attend.
If I was a princess, maybe we could talk ;)
So, which pair do you think I chose??
Take some guesses, and maybe I'll tell you! :)
I will say I am THRILLED with my choice.
They were even more beautiful in person, and the perfect amount of bling-a-ling.
