Pearls

Thursday, June 16, 2011

There's something about a pearl choker and a birdcage veil that I find completely irresistible. Are you a sucker for the classics, or do you go wild for nontraditional accessories paired with bridal gowns?

  1. some days I'm classic and some days I'm funky. I'm going to let the emotion of our planning dictate what I end up with.

  12. I like the classics more and more but I didn't choose to go with it because it's not really a true reflection of my style. However, I would be interested in wearing a bird cage veil to a different event - maybe even a colored one (black ones are so sexy if you can get past the association with funerals).

  15. I am more of a nontraditional bridal jewelry lover but the perfect classic accessories still move me whenever I see them:) I hope birdcage veils never go out of style.

  18. I love the nontraditional because to me, it is all about creativity BUT my favorite pieces of jewelry are those given to me by my grandmother; and she is the definition of classic. xo Samantha

  33. I fancy myself a classic girl, but sometimes the unexpected or funky or whimsical accessories really catch my eye. I imagine when I do get married, I will have a very difficult time trying to figure out how I'd like to look!
