I wore my grandmother’s pearls for my wedding.  🙂  It’s a single strand my mom had restrung for me.  I think pearls are beautiful and very "bride-y."  I will post a pic when I go home at lunch, but pearls are very classic, and imo, go well with a lot of different styles of dresses.

Pearls are a classic timeless look especially for weddings, but they aren’t for everyone. I didn’t like the look of a strand with my dress, but chose to get a pendant with one pearl and this pretty white gold swirl with some diamond chips. For my girls I just made strands with swarovski pearls and gemstones. Just be careful that three strands don’t take away from your dress!!

I’m wearing lots of pearls! I am wearing one strand that my momg gave me when I was 16 for my something old, and two strands I am borrowing–so I will have three strands layered, all a little bit different. I think it is a neat way to spin the classic look of pearls into something a bit more modern.

I’m wearing Mirian Haskell baroque pearls.  I think they go with my dress beautifully!

I wore pearls, but not a traditional pearl necklace. My dress was realllly white and I was worried about not being able to match the pearls to it exactly, so I found this necklace at Nordstrom.

I wore a strand of pearls with sapphire accents. My dress was an ivory/goldish color and I thought they matched pretty well. If you find a pearl necklace that you like, wear it! As you can see in this thread there are tons of different ways to wear them.

I’m not wearng pearls because I’m doing a bare neck with chandelier earrings, but if I was wearing a necklace it would be pearls. My friend who got married this weekend wore pearls and they just look so timeless and elegant. I like it simpler though – 1 strand – but that’s just my personal taste.

I’m wearing a single pearl with some crystals. I made it myself.  I think pearls add a very bridal look. BUT there is so much you can do to make it your own.

Well my necklace is too big – but it looks just like my earrings.
