accessory dilemmas

I have a problem. A few of you may already know about it.

I'm an accessory whore. From earrings to a headpiece to a necklace to brooches to sashes and veils, I can't make up my mind. Honestly, I have no idea what I'll look like on my wedding day. To add fuel to the fire, my wedding porn addiction moved me toward a search for the perfect cardigan. I mean, after seeing photos like the ones below, how could I not fall in love with the idea?



And after only 3 days of searching, I picked up a beauty at Old Navy for $10. Yep, $10. They had tons of different styles and at this point, I'm wishing I'd purchased more. Mine is very similar to the photo below, but it's a pale shade of purple and the flowers are ivory.


My mother isn't too impressed by the idea of wearing a cardigan with my wedding gown but I absolutely love it. I'm not sure if I want to do it just for the reception or for the entire day, but either way, this pretty little thing will make an appearance at the wedding.

Unfortunately for me, this means that I now have an even more difficult set of decisions ahead of me. Ideally, I'd like to combine a necklace, earrings, cardigan, veil, hair flower and sash but I have a feeling that probably won't work. I'm just thankful that my dress is finished being altered so I can try out a few combination before the big day.

See? Wedding porn is nothing but trouble. Dang.

i love the idea too! You snagged a cute one! I think I'm going to be sweaty as it is so I don't think I can pull one off in mid August though!

Solution:

Ceremony: necklace, earrings, veil, and sash

Reception: necklace, earrings, cardigan, hair flower

Good luck :)
