I need help in choosing my bridesmaid necklaces. I have eight ladies to buy for, one is on the grooms side. I would like the necklaces to match my jewelry a bit. My dress has mostly crystal sparkly and pearl beading at the top of the bodice, thus everyone has stated I don’t need a necklace but just long earrings. I don’t even have my earrings after several shopping trips to various dept stores and online looking. I have a backup pair that are all crystal sparkly, but I am going to journey on in the quest for a modest dangly pair with mostly crystal sparkle but a small pearl drop to soften the look…
So on with the bridesmaid necklaces. Please help me decide. To start their dresses look like but hemmed just below the knee and matching upon toe heels (this is indoor church wedding, and outdoor reception with lots of green trees and water):
To complicate things a bit, I fell in love early on with these necklaces after I had the idea I would be purchasing earrings that had pearl. I even found them for a super discount and purchased 6 of these
They didn’t come with earrings, so I could either buy some studs or have the girls wear their own pearl earrings which I’ve seen done before.
For the maid of honor and my grooms sister (who is best woman) we purchased a similar necklace like:
Which combine crystal and pearl. I was excited about this.
My dilemma is I also like this necklace and earring combo (but haven’t found a great price yet).
I think I’d like this myself and know the girls might get some use out of the earrings after.
What should I do? I already have the pearl necklaces but do they even go with the bright bridesmaid dress?
Would it be ok if the girls wore pearl necklaces if I didn’t have any pearl in my earrings, in case I don’t find what I’m looking for?
Please help! Thanks.
