Oh what would we do without our fellow bees for advice….. 🙂
I keep hearing that if you have detail on your dress not to wear a necklace, but I think it would look ok.
I will be wearing my hair half up with a small-medium crystal hair comb. Something like this:
I’m not big on bracelets but wouldn’t mind one for the right price. I was going to wear dangly earrings but nothing huge and they will be partially hidden by my hair.
Necklace 2 actually has a light yellow gold chain. My dress is white with silver and crystals, but my ring is yellow gold and color theme is light blue and copper so I was going to ask the BMs to wear yellow gold or rose gold. I actually think the yellow gold is really nice and subtle on necklace 2, barely even noticeable, but it does come in silver as well.
This is my dress
Necklace 2 (just a tad lopsided)

I prefer the 2nd necklace because I think “Y” shape necklaces pair better with a V-neckline rather than the straight neckline of your dress. The 2nd one you posted is really pretty and I think will compliment the beading in your dress.

I voted no necklace. I think straight necklines look better bare or with something very small and dainty, and with all the beautiful detail on the dress I just don’t think you need it!

What about something very delicate like #1 but not a Y shape? Would be great to have something I’d wear again too. I just feel like my neckline needs something there.

I actually quite like the jewelry that was paired with your dress in the model pic. 🙂

I bought a necklace set from http://www.weddingfactorydirect.com – they have a ton of options that you might like. I voted several days ago for the silver necklace with teardrops (though I am biased – my necklace had a teardrop). Ultimately I wore and loved a necklace from nordstrom, but there are SO MANY options at the link I put – including some that are more delicate and some that are chunkier.

ok i finally have a picture of me in my dress? Any other coments now on necklace or necklace? I’m not convinced I need one now. This is the first time I’ve had it properly done up

If you still feel the need for one, I’d find or borrow something dainty. Most bridal fashion jewelry is pretty inexpensive and I think really takes away from, rather than enhance, the entire look.
I vote for no necklace.
