Perhaps the only thing I love more than a ruffle is a bow. I have a mad obsession for bows. My engagement ring . . . is a bow. And about as cute as it gets, by the way - just sayin’. I’ve been thinking a lot about my wedding jewelry and have completely ruled out necklaces. As much as I want to wear one (and have photoshopped about a million of them into a picture of me in my dress), the look is definitely better without a necklace. And I can’t go overboard with earrings either because I’ll have all those ruffles over my ears (which is for the best – I’ve got some weirdo ears). I’m crazy about cocktail rings, but my engagement and wedding rings are for sure taking center stage, so I am left with bracelets. Which is awesome ’cause I love bracelets. Side note: if you love bows as much as I do, do NOT google “bow bracelet” – you may throw up from over-stimulation.
Whenever I picture my wedding garb, I pan down to my wrist and I’m wearing a simple ribbon tied into a bow. So precious and old-fashioned and sweet. But I can’t help but want to bulk it up a little, so I’m leaning towards a ribbon in the palest pink with a few pearls and retro gold pieces in the center of the bow. Like these adorable flowers – can you imagine these in a little cluster? Cute. That is cute.

P.S. None of those bracelets are really what I have in mind, but after spending a ridiculous amount of time trying to google-up an image of a ribbon tied around someone’s wrist in a non-religious way, I gave up. Don’t people do this? Seems so weird to me – it’s the cutest thing in the world!
