Wedding Wednesday: The Little Accessories

    8. The Little Accessories
On my wedding day, I had on very little accessories. I didn't wear a veil... or shoes. But I did make these feet bracelet things (what are they called?!). I think they came out pretty nice & they were perfect for a beach wedding:

Even during most of the reception I wasn't wearing any shoes. That's just how I do.

As for jewelry, I had on a simple bracelet (that I also made) and I just wore white studded earrings. I had a flower in my hair. During the reception, one of my sister-in-laws gave us kukui nut leis from Hawaii. And that's pretty much it as far as accessories go.

After talking to my bridesmaids individually about what they wanted to wear, I found that they all wanted something different. One wanted sleeveless, one wanted spaghetti straps, etc. etc. So I just decided to let them choose whatever they wanted. I wanted them to feel comfortable and pretty. I knew the only way I was going to make all of them happy was letting them do their thang. My only requirement was that the dress had to be purple. And I think they did a great job & they all looked beautiful:

  1. Leia, thanks for sharing! I'm just realizing I have a similiar vision...purple for bridesmaids and I want to try to make those sandal bracelets too! It won't be at a beach, but in a garden outdoor space. And I'm working on some DIY decor, so exciting!

    1. Awesome! J and I are still looking out for cheap flights. We really want to go! Either way, I can't wait to see pictures!

  2. I'm getting married on Saturday and I don't want to wear shoes either, but mine isn't on the beach! Is that still socially acceptable?! Haha.

    1. lol, totally! I mean, our reception wasn't on the beach, but I was barefoot anyways! No one told me nothin. It was my day, so I did what I wanted. =)
