I’ve already bought my bridesmaids a pretty but inexpensive jewlery set that I think will go well with their dark purple dresses. They are the lilac colored set in the picture below.
I just bought some earrings for myself, but not the matching necklace. (In the picture below). I thought the whole set together looked too “matchy”. And I don’t really like the way necklaces look on me because my neck is a bit thick and I feel like they accentuate it.
But I’m wondering if I will look too bare besides my bridesmaids if they are wearing necklaces? Should I give them the set but ask them not to wear the necklace to the wedding, or will it look ok if they wear necklaces and I don’t? Alternatively, I could maybe look for a more simple necklace for myself that wont look so matchy with the earrings.
Anyone have suggestions? Thanks 🙂
BTW, You can’t tell in the pictures but the bridesmaids earrings are a lot smaller than mine.

i think it’s fine not to wear a necklace. you want to stand out from your bridesmaids anyway, and sometimes simple is better.

I think it’s perfectly ok for you not to wear a necklace. You’ll be the one drawing all the attention anyway=) I love the simple look.

My bridesmaids are wearing a necklace and I’m not…my dress has a lot of jewels around the sweetheart neckline so I don’t want to take away from it. I’m sure you’ll look just fine!

I got my girls a necklace and earrings and I am not wearing one. In fact other than my ring I won’t have any other jewelry on. ( I can’t wear earrings or necklaces with out them irritating my skin. I will have a flower in my hair.
I think it is just another way to let the bride stand out on her special day.

Its absolutely ok for you not to wear a necklace and for your bridesmaids to wear necklaces. I wore earrings and a bracelet and my sister (my MOH) wore a necklace, bracelet and earrings 🙂 It looked great!

Absolutely fine! I went to a wedding last year where the bridesmaids and bride had the same earrings, bracelet and necklace. It kind of annoyed me!

Totally fine. I’m not planning on wearing a necklace, and I’m sure some of my bridesmaids will.
