A few tips for the road:
~ If you want your Bridesmaid's and Groomsman's accessories to look uniform, make them their gift! For my wedding I gave my bridesmaids glitter Nine West heels, and for Jen's wedding, she gave all her bridesmaids matching crystal earrings, and her fiance Brandon gave all his Groomsmen navy and white gingham pocket squares and socks.
~ Make sure you pick shoes that are comfortable and that you can walk in at your ceremony. If you're wedding is outside on grass, maybe try to look for a wedge heel so you have more stability walking down the aisle.
~ Veil: Don't forget to check your look from behind. If the back of your gown is gorgeous and you want to show it off, opt for a shorter sheer veil of tulle.
~ And as for your "something old," see if the women in your family have any lovely family heirloom jewels or brooches to pin on your bouquet or dress.
Have a fabulous wedding, and be well accessorized!
