    It depends…what is your dress like? I believe the general rule of thumb is don’t go too overboard on the earrings if your dress is either A) casual (ex. tea-length) or B) ornately decorated (ex. lots of beading on the bust). So basically, if your dress is a formal plain satin number, then these earrings will go well (try maybe adding a bit of a matching pattern to your train!), but if not, then they might seem like too much.

    Of course, it also depends on your physical traits…if you have a long neck, then they’ll look good, but if you have a small head/neck like me, then ~4 inches is a bit long for earrings.

    Oh, I love them! I think they are gorgeous and very bridal. If you think they go with your dress than go for it!

    The earrings are gorgeous and they’ll go perfectly with your dress! I don’t think you need a necklace if you have those earrings. Between them and the beading on the top of your dress, a necklace would make it too busy, IMO.

    Yes they will go great with your dress!  I would not wear a necklace if you are going to wear these earrings because that would be too over the top.  This etsy designer has beautiful bracelets and you could wear the earring and bracelet just no necklace.  Love your dress too!

    I love them and say go for it. BUt I would only wear the earrings… they make a big enough statement that you dont need a necklace

    LOVE them and I don’t think they’re too much, as long as you don’t wear a necklace. I have drop earrings, as well, and I’m not wearing a necklace either!

    Looks great to me! But I agree with the previous posters-I wouldn’t wear a necklace.

    I think the earrings are gorgeous! And, if you want a necklace – I say go for it. No one will think you’re too over the top or too blingy – you’re a bride! It’s the one day you can get away with it.

    I like the necklace too – but it’s almost too simple… I would suggest finding something that has a resemblance to your earrings or your dress… but keep it a little simple.  

    Good luck – I’m sure you’ll be a beautiful bride!

    I love them too!  But I agree, since they’re such fabulous earrings, maybe no necklace or a VERY simple one!  Good luck, you’re gonna look gorgeous!
