Are these earrings too loud for the dress?
Posted: Jan 30, 2011 5:09 AM

Hi everyone! I fell in love with these diamond earrings that I can rent for my wedding. Since my dress is not poofy or with a big train or anything...I thought maybe it would be a good way to have that extra WOW factor. Especially since the affair will be winter, and formal...But, are they just too much?

Here is a link to my dress: http://theringbearer.ca/wedding_fashion.php?gender=women&item_id=2699

Here's a link to the earrings: http://rentyourrocks.com/product.php?id=125

The earrings almost match the beadwork design on the dress exactly!

I'd like to make a decision soon even though the wedding is far away, so that no one else can rent them before I do. They only have one of each item.

What do you think? Thanks!

As long as you're not wearing any other jewelry (besides your rings, of course), they should be fine.

Thanks! Yeah I had no intention of wearing any other jewelry other than my ring and the earrings.

I'm also considering these: http://rentyourrocks.com/product.php?id=151

Or these: http://rentyourrocks.com/product.php?id=77

What do you think?

I like the first pair best with your dress...however, I'd personally be a wreck wearing a pair of earrings worth 19,000 pounds. I'd be a little less freaked out by earrings worth only (!) 3,000 pounds...because if I lost one OMG! At least the ones for 3000 quid are within a zone of "I could replace these"

Haha, I know it's crazy expensive, but I'll probably put two backings on the earring super tight, and they are so big that they'd be hard to lose.

You meant you liked the first ones in my first post right? Not the first one in the second post?

Thanks for the advice!

I think the ones from your first post go best with your dress. I was just telling DH that if I had those on and lost one, I can imagine shouting out at my reception.

"NO ONE MOVE. NOW... LOOK FOR THIS EARRING!" :)

:) I'm sure I'll do the same if that happens! There will be lots of bouncy Greek dancing so I am going to have to screw them in super super tight...eek!
But I love them, it's worth it. :)

I just hope no one calls me tacky cause they're huge!

I'm sure they won't. Especially since this is the only accessory you're using. Besides, if there is a day to have the wow factor in the jewelry, this is it

Yes you're right...this is the time to shine...figuratively and literally! :)

The whole dress is beaded too, but the shape of the dress is like a "normal" dress so I wanted to find some element to take the bride look to another level.

Thanks for the input!

Evie - I'm with Cat - First pair of earrings in the first post. But NO other jewelry and don't do too much with your hair.

It will look stunning!

Great! I'm glad I can get away with this. :)

I was going to have my hair back maybe in a chignon. That's simple enough, right?

Yes! Perfect! LOL I know I know, we're an opinionated bunch.

But seriously, I think the dress is gorgeous and then the earrings are stunning - if you do too much with your hair, it will compete - and you want to showcase the earrings and dress.

A chignon sounds PERFECT!

Oh no, I didn't mean it like that! I've only been on this forum for weeks and I am incredibly appreciative of the support and advice.

I wish I could wear my dress and earrings everyday! :)

Good, I'm glad a chignon wouldn't be too much either, cause I'd like some kind of subtle ornamentation in my hair.

No evie, I didn;t think you did. I was just chuckling.

With the ornamentation in you hair, very slight and maybe so you don't see it so much from the front - unless it's just some metallic twine or something.

Less is definitely more with what you are doing. :-)

Oh no, I didn't mean that kind of ornamentation- not jewels or anything. Just the way the hair twists. Like a decorative twist in the back.
