wedding day bling.

I've been meaning to show you some pictures of the jewelry I picked out to wear on the wedding day. I wanted a bigger bracelet but nothing too trendy. I picked out a few cuffs but decided those would fall more in the trendy category. I think this bracelet from Macy's is perfect, and it's definitely something I'll wear again. Since the stones are oval, I thought my earrings should have a similar shape, but I couldn't find any earrings with oval stones. I decided pear shape would be the next best thing. To be honest, I'm still unsure about the earrings. The top stone is a little bigger than I'd like it to be. I'm saving the receipt in case I find a pair I like more. As always, I'm open to suggestions.
Both items are Crislu's silver platinum collection. Apparently the silver is not supposed to tarnish, which is good! Of course the stones are cubic zirconia, as I am not made of money, but I don't think they look fake like some others I've seen.
I purchased both pieces the day after I signed up for a Macy's credit card, so I got 20% off. It ended up being a significant savings. Plus, since we have a wedding registry there, I'll get another 10% back in the form of in-store credit after the wedding! I was proud of myself for getting such a good deal.
I'm still undecided in the necklace category. I'm thinking it might be a little much. Do you agree?

Those are so beautiful :-)
How about just a simple necklace with one blingbling-stone?

Love them both. Very elegant. My advise--if you haven't done this already--is to try them on with the dress. I couldn't decide on earrings until I tried on the whole ensemble and then it was crystal clear what worked.

I think they both are super pretty! I was just looking at Macy's the other day . . . although not exactly sure what I want. I have decided that I don't want a necolace. I am not really a bling girl, so I think earings and a bracelet are plenty!
