Accessories were really my favorite part of my wedding... on with the pictures!

 My garters and shoes.  I bought the garters from Peterene Design and the shoes from Shop for Phree.  As far as shoes went, I knew I wanted red lacy heels and these were just that.  I also needed height because Dustin is over a foot taller than me!  (P.S. See that bruise on the foot with the tat? That came from the car accident I was in the day before. Sexy right?)

My veil was fingertip length and went with my dress.  It had beautiful lace detailing on it.  I also ended up going with a tiara (something else that also went right with my dress) so I had the veil tucked towards the back of my neck.

The tiara and necklace.  I also wore simple pearl studs in my ears that were a gift from Dustin the night before at our rehearsal dinner.


My bridesmaids wore matching black dresses from David's Bridal.  I told them to wear whatever heels they wanted as long as they were red and they could wear whatever jewelry they wanted.  I bought them each red pashminas as part of their bridesmaid gifts.
