My Jewelry and Other Accessories

This was THE hardest thing for me to plan! I had no clue how to accessorize my dress, which 'rules' to follow and not (like what type of necklace to wear with certain necklines). It was a nightmare and one of my biggest stressors because no one I talked to about it could understand my frustration!
Etsy became my absolute best friend in the whole world for this :)
I'm very happy with how it all turned out.
My pride and joy, I fell in love with it and it ended up being a present from my mommy!
To match the braclet...I was finally tying it all together :)
I was very unsure about a necklace and never did find one I really liked. My mom loves to hunt through antique stores for interesting jewelry and has a huge stockpile. She brought over a few boxes of things I might like, and I was actually planning to go without a necklace but threw this one in my Bride bag at the last minute! I took it out when we were all getting ready, just to see what everyone thought. They all agreed I should wear it and I'm very glad I did! It really matched the vintage-y theme that seemed to flow through our wedding.
Another Etsy find. I was really on the fence about a veil, and when I found this I knew this look was for me!
My 'other' ring
It's kind of hard to see in this picture, I never got a close up. The big blue stone on my other hand was one of my 'something blues'. My aunt surprised me with it at the rehearsal dinner, it turned out to belong to my other aunt who passed away when she was 19. I was named after her and everyone says I look just like her. I cried when she gave it to me!!
My ceremony shoes. I got these for a whole DOLLAR on ebay! Apparently a shoe store had a few of these in stock for quite awhile and they were starting to discolor on the heel. I figured for $1 if they looked horrible I could find something else...but you couldn't tell! I wouldn't have know if I hadn't been told.
My reception shoes. Custom made by an Etsy seller, I wanted them to match the BM dresses! They were super comfy, but we forgot to get an actual pic of me wearing them :(
A surprise for my John Deere loving hubby! (He collects actual antique tractors). The idea was for him to see it as he pulled it off for the garter toss, but my shy guy decided last minute he didn't want to do it. So I gave him a quick sneek peak at the reception :P
