Can I just say how much I LOVE brides that can pull of statement jewelry on their big day?
I love it so much that I actually started considering it for my own wedding day. I even had one of those “bridezilla moments” where I got in this mindset that I had to find the perfect statement necklace. When I couldn’t find anything I liked in my price range, I started to look for something a little higher, then a little higher, then a little higher, and – after that – what’s a little bit more? That’s when I came-to and realized I was looking at necklaces that were three times more than what I originally started at. Whoa. Slow down, Meghann.
I stepped away from the computer and gave myself a minute to really think about it. I’m not a person who wears a lot of jewelry. All the stuff I do own is costume type stuff that I’ve collected over the years from Target, Forever 21, and Charming Charlie. I don’t own a lot of nice jewelry because I don’t ever wear it. When it comes down to it, I’m not really a jewelry person.
So I gave up on the statement necklace idea. I liked the look of the statement necklaces on those brides, but would I like it on me? I wasn’t convinced.
Then I was cleaning my closet out over the weekend and I remembered this necklace that my parents gave me in high school.
It’s a snowflake.
And I have matching earrings.
Without even trying, my wedding jewelry found me. Love it when that happens. 🙂
What jewelry did you wear on your wedding day? Did you go the statement route, sentimental, simple, or nothing at all?
