i am having such a tough time choosing a necklace. my wedding is outdoors at a state park/lodge building that is very rustic in the mountains – the building for the reception actually looks like a large log cabin and we’re getting married on the terrace. the wedding is quite casual (groomsmen in slacks, vests, and ties; bridesmaids in their choice of a mint green dress in any variety; my bouquets are dried lavender and burlap; my theme is birds/birdcages/trees)…but i am wearing a mermaid dress (its ivory)…anyway…i’ve chosen a few options and i can’t seem to narrow it down! two of the necklaces are pretty and scream “me” (the mint rose/pearl 2 tiered option and the silver multi-charm piece that incorporates all my colors and a tree to go with part of the theme) and two of them are sentimental (the birds on a branch with me and FI’s initials or the dog necklace as a memorial of my dog i lost back in november – picture in a sepia tone)…anyway…let me know what you think!!!
Necklace 4 (obviously with my dog’s picture):
thanks for any help and feedback! i really appreciate it 🙂

@blankenshiptobe: They’re all very pretty, but I think the first one is perhaps the most elegant, and would look the nicest in photographs!
My next choice would be the bird branch with your initials.

@chronicwhimsy: thank you!!! i am first and foremost in love with the mint rose/pearl necklace…but i do love the personal touch of the birds. i already have a pendant of my dog in a black and white, so i can always attach that to my bouquet to cover that part!

@weddingbound: I agree but there was no poll option for none…..

i like the first one the best. the others are too casual for your beautiful dress.

@weddingbound: thank you for these! i’m completely ok with the necklace being very casual and “every day”…but that’s just the direction i’m going. i’m a simple girl. no veil, minimal jewelry…not into bling really. i love the ones you’ve found! they are gorgeous!!!

well…after all this…i talked to my grandmother last night and she asked how things were going, and i told her about how i was polling my wedding forum site and asking my friends their opinions on a necklace, and she kind of got quiet for a minute, and then told me that she has a 1.5 karat diamond soitaire necklace in white gold that she has been keeping for me that she’s had for a long time (she had wanted to give it to my fiancé for my engagement ring) and she is giving it to me as a wedding gift and wanted to know if that would be something i would want to wear. OF COURSE I WANT TO WEAR IT! that solves ALL my problems! heirloom from my grandma – yes! so happy 🙂 thanks for all the input!
