Oh my! I never thought of this! Perhaps the first one with the dangling pearls? Oh I think this would be lovely!

Mamma is coming Monday and I will show her your ideas! Thank you all so much!

With love,
~Cat

My vote is for the first one with replacing pearls for the dangles and the round gems at the top of the dangles. A jeweler would be able to make other suggestions but I think adding a few pearls elsewhere will pull the look together more.

I agree with this. How nice to have such a beautiful memento of your wedding :-)

Here's something I thought of in the middle of the night Cat. Maybe I was dreaming of our DC princess.

I see from your profile that your birthday is in January and so your birthstone is Garnet. What would you think of having that lovely stone in it?

Since your parents are having this made just for you, this could be stunning.

Look at this..January Birthstone

Yes, I think a Garnet would be stunning as the centerpiece.

I don't want to be a spoil sport, but how well does a tiara go with that dress?

PapaCat And I Are Pleased To Announce...

What colour dress did you choose Cat?

That's a good point, actually. Maybe the princess gown would work better: http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/...mise-gown.aspx

Not that I want to tell Cat what she should choose for her wedding dress I'm just playing.

I think the princess gown would work better with a tiara too.

I think a tiara would go with a potato sack, so what do I know...
