    A small chain pendant with stud earrings, or a drop earring and bracelet with no necklace.

    No necklace. I think either big earrings and nothing blingy in your hair. Or something blingy in your hair with small stud earrings.

    Miss Coral:  Personally, I wouldn’t wear a necklace with that dress because I feel it would take away from the ruffled neckline. I would wear statement earrings, nothing too big, and I would wear a fancy bracelet too

    Miss Coral:  Because there is so much embelishment around the neck already, I would do a chain with a pendant, or a chain and pearl and stud earrings to match.

    The neckline is statement enough, and big dangly earrings would also be too much, too close. I’d go for chunky stud earrings.

    I agree with PPs!  No necklace.  As my bridal consultant said to me during my fittings, “The [ruffles] *ARE* your neckalce!”  (I had another embellishment at the neckline, but I think the point still holds.)  

    I think having both would be SUPER distracting and take away from the dress.  There’s a reason that you picked a dress with such an elaborate neckline— don’t detract from it! 🙂

    I love that ruffle but I think it’s a lot going on, so I’d limit the jewelry. Personally, I’d go with awesome studs or small earrings and no necklace. That’s what I did, because I had a pretty busy neckline. I think you’d probably be fine with a small pendant necklace on a thin chain, if you wanted, but I would avoid large neckalce or earrings.
