So accessories drove me as crazy as finding my dress. So, I posted here and received a veil suggestion that I love! Pictures are below. It also saved me money! Since the veil was only $50 (and has sparkly thread throughout - not rhinestones or pearls - swoon!), I bought *both* looks (shoes, earrings, bracelets, and veil) that I've been choosing between - rose gold and ivory for... wait for it... $215.

Costs: Both pairs of shoes combined were $65. The veil was $50. The earrings (both pairs) $60. Both bracelets were $40 combined. All in - I'm at $215!? And I can go with any combination that I like. Smiley smile So now... I have everything pictured here - and on a budget!

    Can be very easy to budget if done right.

    Veils are so expensive and often we are left with cut edge and plain in whatever length to save cost. I'm glad that mine has some detail and not basic edging even on a budget. I don't want to go crazy and I wasn't sure if I wanted a veil - but I felt bridal and happy when I put it on. And that's what I decided mattered most.

    Completely right! I'm probably getting mines from Amazon. They have beautiful ones that don't break the bank.

    That's where I was looking. I wanted pearls but they looked like big spots. Then I thought rhinestones but they can look black depending on how the light hits them. This veil is like wearing a universe of stars without dark spots or all ball like spots. So many people in the salon wanted to see it - even the workers! Swoon!

    My ivory shoes are from Amazon. I don't like them as a company but I couldn't find them elsewhere. And they have the most amazing bow on the back and really great reviews - all for under $50.

    I should be going to try it all on in 10 days - 2 weeks. Then fittings in May. I don't know if my destination wedding will happen, but I am wearing this to somewhere and promising forever - even if it's a cardboard box. Ha! Smiley heart

    Absolutely gorgeous earrings! I’m looking for something similar (been looking on Etsy). Any shop recommendations?

    Where did you find the necklace? That’s been my hardest find.
