prettiest for my earlobes
When it came to figuring out wedding jewelry, I must admit, I spent tooooo many hours browsing Etsy! I was into wearing big sparkly gemstone earrings...my dress was VERY simple so fun jewelry would have worked nicely. Except - I couldn't make my mind up...as I'm not really a flashy jewelry kinda lady. I tend to wear sterling silver earrings of the tiny hoop and little stud variety almost everyday (I love silver....like loooooooove silver...it always looks so fresh and clean). So I kept going back to those pieces....and was thinking about wearing the jewelry of my everyday for the "big day."
Except, then the fancy dress came into the picture...with all her beadwork and pearls... and it became clear that gemstone earrings would be too much...and my everyday obsession with silver earrings didn't quite go either.
In the end, I wore pearls. My mom has given me and my sisters oodles of pearls over the years (they are her favorite!). So...I wore a pair of pearls that my mom had given me years ago. And I loved that they were from her - and I think she loved that too ;-)
Did you wear earrings?? How did you decide!?
