Perfect Wedding Earrings
I wore these for my wedding and LOVED them. They are super light. I am allergic to nickel and usually when I put on earrings, I take them off and throw them in my purse in a few hours. But I wore these all day and night no problem. I got tons of compliments on them. Bonus, although dressy enough for your wedding day. I wear them all the time with sundresses and they don't look to fancy. I'll wear these forever.

A do rag.
Swiss dots are always a bit tricky, they can be adorable or cheap looking. Without the addition of the bow and flower, this looked cheap. I tried it on for my fiance and he thought I looked like Aunt Jamima. Not the look I was going for on my wedding day :)

Couldn't get it to lay right.
The tulle is a bit stiff and I couldn't get it to lie flat. And I never figured out how to wear it so the bows weren't covering an eye of on the tip of my nose. And it looked a bit cheap.

Desperately Seeking Susan
I've been in love with these gloves since I got engaged a year ago. I finally got them. They were exactly as pictured, the lace and bow are beautiful. Unfortunately, the looked too Madonna circa 1985. Not the 1950s Mad Men look I was hoping for. I'm returning them.

Beautiful but heavy.
These are absolutely gorgeous. If you wear them, I'd suggest no other accessories. They are a wow piece. The only problem is they are really heavy. I had them on for 5 minutes and knew I'd be taking them off right after the ceremony, but I'm sensitive to heavy earrings. If you wear large earrings all the time and can handle the weight, these are spectacular.

Huge!
I thought this would be a dainty little thing. It's not, the buds are HUGE! Not quite golf ball size, but almost. It's still cute just a bid more mod, avante garde and tough than expected. It could work on someone who wants to add some funk to a sweet dress. I wanted to wear it with my strapless dress, but couldn't get the flower parts to hang above the top of the dress.

More love for this hat!
You can even pin the tulle back over the coil to keep it on after the ceremony. It's the perfect shade of ivory and really cute. Very couture feeling!

Nothing special.
The fabric seems flimsy rather than nice chiffon.The origami looks more like someone randomly tacked down the fabric, making it seem cheap. A heavier chiffon and more crisp folds would be better. I agree with the other review. The zipper down the back is too big and clunky. I know the big uncovered industrial zipper is in style, but not on such a dainty sweet dress. Like all the others said, it runs one size too big.

Looks sort of Granny-Like in person
The netting with applique and beading liked a bit more like a little old lady. The bottom is beautiful, but the top was uncomfortable and a bit more tacky mother of the bride than bride. If you are a very young bride (under 30), you might be able to pull this off if you can stand the itchiness. The rhinestone buttons down the back are beautiful though.
