I've been a bridesmaid in two weddings so far this year, and it's funny (although not surprising) to me that I received earrings for pierced ears to wear with my attire for each wedding. Don't get me wrong--I'm not complaining because I LOVE earrings and I do prefer to make them into clip-ons myself if I have the option. And let's face it. As a bride, the last thing they were each thinking about was, "Well, I sure do hope that Janae's ears are pierced..." So I'm really not offended or hurt by this generous, albeit somewhat ironic, gesture.
I chose the earring clips that something could be glued into, however I didn't have time for glue to dry and set completely before the wedding (thanks to traveling so last-minute and helping the bride with some last minute wedding needs). I didn't have all of my jewelry tools either (again, thanks to last-minute travel).
But I knew that my brother, whose family my husband and I were staying with for the trip, had lots and lots of tools and had to have something small enough that would work for what I needed. He did, even if it was a some-what unorthodox way of punching a tiny hole through the top part of the clip-on...
Anyway, here's the final outcome.
I was also 8 months pregnant for her wedding. (And for the record, I do not recommend taking a normally 12 hour road trip at 8 months pregnant! It turns into an 18 hour road trip.)
