It was a whirlwind week. All the stress and planning paid off though because everything worked out and it was beautiful, all of it.
As you can imagine I have tons of stories (and pictures) to share with you, so sit back and enjoy.
Now let’s see where did I leave off? Ah yes—the outfit
If only deciding on a dress was he only thing a bride had to do. But no no…there are accessories to think about as well. This was another detail that was low on my priority list.
For The Dress
The front of the dress needed a little something. While at the mall, my Mom suggested we go through Claire’s and see if there would be something cheap we could use as a placeholder to narrow down what kind of embellishment would work. A $5.50 clip? Sure, why not!
It was the right shade, had a tropical feel, and matched the design of the dress. Not to mention the price could not be beat (David’s Bridal offers something similar for $79.00).
For My Hair
The clips worked out so well I stuck one in my hair too!
For My Wrists & Ears
My co-worker Susie has many hidden talents. One of which is beaded jewelry making. She offered to create something for the occasion.
I loved the layering and different textures they provided.
The earrings I found in a random accessory store in the mall. Under $10! That’s how I roll.
For My Feet
I wanted to be comfortable and heels + all the stairs at the villa = bad idea. I already own a pair of Steve Madden ballet flats which I love so I simply ordered the same exact pair with a bit of fun sparkle.
There you have it. Head to toe accessories. Mostly under $10.
I want to know…
What wedding accessory did YOU spend the most on?
