Y’all, it is crunch time! My wedding is just a month and a half away, and I feel like I am making decisions left and right. With many things in my life, I’m the type of person who says “I’ll know it when I see it,” and I’m happy (and a little bit relieved) that that was the case for my shoes and my veil. My jewelry, on the other hand, has been another story entirely. I have been waiting for the “perfect wedding day jewelry” to show up in my path for over a year now, and I’m running out of time, so I need to make some decisions!

I think what makes this decision a little overwhelming to me is that jewelry is one of the most special things a girl can pass down. I really love the idea of being able to show my future daughters what I wore on my wedding day, which means I need to choose pieces that will last for a long time and still look beautiful. There isn’t much heirloom jewelry in my family and I would love to start the tradition!
While I don’t have a super clear picture in my head of what I’m looking for, I know I want to keep my jewelry simple and elegant, but special. So far, I’ve sifted through the options at BHLDN, J. Crew, BaubleBar, Nordstrom, Kendra Scott, Kate Spade, Tiffany & Co., Stella & Dot, and Loren Hope (phew!), and I’ve saved a few pieces that have caught my eye. I love classic Southern pearls, but I also think a hint of sparkle would be a pretty addition to my wedding day look, and I’m a little obsessed with that pale blue bracelet (something blue, anyone?).
Do you have a favorite combination from these options? And do you have any other favorite jewelry sources I should check out? I’m all ears!
