Wedding Accessories Part 1

As the accessories start rolling in (a gift from Maris), I’ll feature them here, giving a little love to the vendors responsible for the bling.

A few weeks ago, while editing a sponsored post for APW, I stumbled across a sponsored post introducing Little White Chapel and before it even went live I was scanning the store. I loved their beautiful antique-y looking pieces and of course, their prices. A few weeks ago my wedding earings arrived in the mail.

They are clip-ons, and I have pierced ears, but there is something about it that makes me feel like I’m once again playing in my grandmother’s jewelery boxes, putting on her lipstick, having her allow me to dress her up. I probably won’t have “something old” or “something borrowed” on our wedding day, but these make me feel like I have both.

Thank you Little White Chapel! You make finding jewelry, for the day I will be photographed the most, so incredibly easy.

*These are in no way sponsored posts. I’m not paid to say nice things, but I love to give shout outs to awesome vendors of awesome things. Enjoy!

  1. Oh, those are gorgeous! One of the loveliest ladies I know wears clip-ons all the time, mainly so her baby can pull them off without causing bodily harm, and so of course I think they’re just the most charming things. Can’t wait to see the rest of your accessories!

  2. i LOVE those perty earrings!! So feminine and glamorous in a simple way. And of COURSE youll have at least something borrowed! Theres always someone who is wanting to offer up something of theirs that you just HAVE to wear with your dress :)) If not, call me and i will overnight something awesome to Seattle πŸ˜‰

  3. Oh, Lauren!! These are lovely. And your post today totally had meaning for me, too. I used to play dress-up in my grandmommie’s (yes, that’s what I called her) jewelry. And her shoes. She had tiny feet, and I loved to try on her old-fashioned shoes.

    Thank you for drawing these memories to mind. πŸ™‚

    1. I WISH that someone would. I would love to carry something down the aisle that my grandmother wore, etc. But when I asked my mom if my grandmother would want to do that (trying to see if I shouldn’t buy a necklace, or something, etc) she said probably not. I was surprised and disappointed, but maybe people now think that it’s being too pushy? I don’t know…

      1. I had this same issue in regards to borrowing something that belonged to my grandmother or mother…I wanted to wear my mother’s sapphire ring but my fingers are too big! boo!
        I ended up wearing a ruby ring that my mother-in-law wore on her wedding day though, which made me feel all fuzzy inside. πŸ™‚

      2. Ask her anyway. She could be really touched when you say “I would love to carry something special to you, on my wedding day.” At the very worst, she could say “I don’t think I have anything that would work.”

        My mother was sure no one would want me to borrow their stuff (thanks, Mom). Turns out, 95% of my accessories were offered by various people. You can never tell.

        1. OoooOOoo good thinking. See, that was my fear that I would buy stuff for the day and then day of ppl would be throwing them at me. but when I asked, it seemed like no one would, but maybe I need to go to the SOURCE.

  4. How lovely! They are so pretty and understated but still glamourous, you know? (How many adjectives can I stick in one sentence?)

    And I love that you posted this today when, this morning, I pulled a pair of my own grandmother’s clip-on earrings (she never had pierced ears) out of my jewelry box to wear — little ivory roses with green jade leaves. I’ve been thinking of her all day because of these earrings!
