I’m having an offbeat wedding. It’s punk-rock/ska influence. My colors are red, black, and white. My dress is black and white, along with my veil being black/white. I just need help with finding a necklace. Here’s a photo of my dress and veil. Plus, the necklaces I’ve found.
Here’s the necklaces. Sorry if picutres are big!

I vote for 2 or 3…i would wear 3 but 2 is like in your face…this comea down to what you want because this is very offbeat so most brides won’t give you a good opinion

Are those your final options? I’ll be honest, I’m not really loving any of them.
If I HAD to choose one, I’d choose 4.
If they aren’t your final options, I’d be happy to help find you additional necklaces to look at!

I think both your dress and your veil are beautiful and elegant. I also like most of the necklace choices you posted, but I don’t love any of them with your dress and veil. Of the choices, I think I like #4 the most …

If you gals can find something else, I wouldn’t mind seeing it. I don’t want the necklace to be over powering because the dress does it on it’s own.

@ForeverAndEverAfter: Thanks! The dress is beautiful to me and makes a statement on it’s own. I’d rather have the necklace be suttle and too crazy.

What about going bare necked, like the model/actress/red carpet walker?
it’s hard to give an opinion without seeing the look on you, since body shape and height matters.

What about something like this?
I don’t necessarily think you should wear a necklace. There was a thread a little bit ago about wearing a necklace with a dress with a sweetheart neckline, and I think a lot of thoughts on that still apply here. How do you plan on wearing your hair, and are you going to have anything in it other than your veil? What, if anything, do you want to do for earrings, as in statement or small and simple?
Your dress and veil are beautiful, and I think all of those necklaces detract from it just a bit too much. If I were you, I’d go with something like what I posted with small earrings, or just statement red earrings.
ETA: You can find a lot of things similar to what I posted by searching “Victorian” in the jewelry section on Etsy, and you could also try searching steampunk, that might fight fit into your theme a bit better. Also something spiky or otherwise a little “edgy” to make your look a little more modern would be awesome!

@mreject: I’m not a huge fan of any of them. I guess if I had to pick, I’d say 1 or 3.
What do you think of this?

@ladyamalthea: That necklace is amazing! I’ve been searching on etsy for a few months now. I have a budget I can’t go over 50. It’s been hard finding a necklace in that price range.
@wifeNat: The second necklace is beautiful! Hopefully in my price range. What site is it on?

@mreject: I would do no necklace with your dress and the veil. There are a lot of pretty details and I think a necklace would take away from it. I think statement earrings and bracelet would be prettier!
