I will be wearing the Casablanca 1827 dress for my upcoming July wedding. And, i have a necklace that I will be wearing that my FMIL bought for me…ok so it doesn’t really match. I feel like it takes away from the detailing of the dress. But in any case, I hope it will be ok. The question is I don’t know what other accessories (earrings and bracelet) I can wear with it. And earrings, I would need clip ons. Any suggestions??
I was thinking of simple drop earrings, but once again i have NO clue what would match the necklace, and I don’t want to buy the expensive matching diamond earrings. I have submitted an alchemy etsy request, but i haven’t seen any ideas i love yet. Maybe I need to be more clear on what I am looking for.
I have attached the dress pic and a pic of the necklace. Thanks SO much! Would love to hear your suggestions!

Well that necklace looks gorgeous! But I think you should keep the earrings super simple so that nothing else would detract from your dress. Since you don’t have pierced ears I found some magnetic cz studs. I think they would match the necklace nicely and add a little bit of sparkle. And honestly after looking at the pic again they have a pretty decent sized necklace and it doesn’t seem to take away from the dress, I hardly noticed it. Plus the shape of your necklace seems to mimic the neckline of your dress. I think a simple cz bracelet would complement the look nicely. Here’s the link to the earrings.

Oh…and here are some clip on studs. I’m not sure how well the magnetic ones would hold up.

oooh! I kind of wore this dress.. I actually had the material remade into a fit that was better for my body. The necklace is great but have you considered wearing it for your rehearsal or something? It could work better with a dress that needs a little accesorizing. I’ll be honest… this dress is beautiful alone but better with simple drop earrings. I wore drop pear earrings and a woven diamond bracelet. If you want pictures, let me know and I’ll try to get a few for you. Nice choice on the dress, share your pictures!

Hi Mschampagne, I would love to see some pics. Could you share some with me? Your posts on your dress inspired me to create a more trumpet or fit and flare shape to the dress 🙂 My first fitting is next Monday! Oooh could you also share some pics of how your dress turned out?
I might just wear that necklace in the evening when i change into another dress…She has yet to give it to me, but i have seen it. But, I am thinking ahead IF I do wear the necklace with the Casblanca, what earrings/bracelet can actually work with the whole look. Just in case…
How are these earrings?

Your dress is beautiful!!!! The necklace choices is exquisite as well.
You definitely need simple, drop earrings so as not to detract from the dress. You could even go with larger studs. You don’t want the earrings too close to the necklace or too flamboyant because that would look strange next to the necklace.
Great taste, though. Good luck!
