YOU Be the Stylist: What accessories should Kristen F wear on her wedding day?

Sometimes, we get a Personal Shopper request that gets us so intrigued, we find it impossible to narrow down our options. We decided, therefore, that our beloved readers should help, since you're all as fashion-obsessed as we are. Introducing.... YOU Be the Stylist: We're faced with a reader who can't decide what to pair with a piece of clothing they've purchased. Neither can we. We'll let you vote.

I'm getting married on 10-10-10, and am having a hard time picking jewelry for the big day. We're going for a very romantic/vintage themed wedding and I'm trying to find jewelry that will be just right. One of the questions I have is should I match it to my engagement ring (which is platinum), or to my dress which is kind of a champagne ivory color? (I've attached a photo of it). I'd also like to keep it under $150. Do you think you can help me? Thank you! Kristin"

4 is the lesser of evils, they are all a little loud for a wedding day, but lose the bracelet.

I agree - #4 is the best of what's there. I would stick with stud earrings though. You don't want giant earrings to steal the focus of close-up shots.

I love you Outblush, but I dunno about the selections above. Kristen F., here is a site that has bridal jewelry sets: http://www.annabellagio.com/product/019264.shtml

The jewelry selections are really pretty but I'm a fan of less is more for bridal wear. With the strapless neckline I would go with a pair of fabulous chandelier earrings or a dainty necklace and bracelet. Just depends on your personal style!

Outblush, I love, love, love selections 3 & 4. I actually ended up getting matching Anne Taylor earrings from selection 3, as well as a bracelet, but I bought the necklace to go with my cream colored rehearsal dinner dress. It's going to be perfect. Thank you so much for being my personal shopper!

I wore this dress for my wedding. (Lovely, lovely dress!) I did a black sash at the waist, and wore two of my Grandma's pearl necklaces and a pair of pearl earrings. So, my vote is for #3! Happy wedding day!
