statement wedding jewelry

i wore my grandmother's earrings on my wedding day. it wasn't to follow the "something old" tradition, i did it because they were chunky and big (for me) and my wedding guests in the last row could see them. i didn't wear a necklace so i wanted my earrings to make a statement. i love the look of big necklaces or bold earrings with a sweet wedding dress. don't forget, it's not just the size of the piece but that color can make a big statement, too. to give you a little inspiration for your wedding, below you'll find some awesome statement wedding jewelry and i'll start with my own earrings!

wedding trend: die-cut decor

die-cut elements are a big hit in weddings right now. from invitations to place cards to favors to jewelry. you can die cut into wood, metal, paper, hard plasti, leather. i love how die-cut items look like lace: delicate and sophisticated. what do you think of this trend? 

one of the brides from a wedding i performed owns a business called peppersprouts and she makes all sorts of cool "modern home decor and accessories" and many of them are die-cut. i love her stuff! she also has a great blog called upstate fancy, check it out!
