I am in the process of deciding on jewelry for my wedding in 3 weeks (EEK!). The dress that I’m wearing is below, that’s not me. I will also be wearing a belt which is thinner than the one shown.
I have a simple strand of pearls that my grandmother had given me for graduation, 18″ strand. It would be great if you think it goes well with the dress below. What do you think? And do you think 18″ is too long?
Additionally, if I do the pearl strand necklace, what do you think about earrings? I’m going to have my hair up in a “messy” side bun updo with just a simple hairpin (no veil). Should I do pearl drop earrings or something more blingy?
Suggestions would be greatly appreciate? If you have picturesor etsy suggestions I would super appreciate that.

I would try to get a piece that is similar to your belt, so silver or crystals. My dress is similar that’s what i am trying

I was thinking of wearing my grandmother’s pearl necklace, since she has passed away, but if it really looks incongruent with the dress, I would opt for something a little less (like a single pearl etc.)
Any more votes? Yay or nay? Do pearls really not match the dress?

Pearls and lace – what could go better? 🙂

I would get a simple teardrop crystal necklace to wear. I have a similar dress and that’s what I’m thinking of doing – similar belt and hair idea too! Can you use your grandmother’s pearls in another way, like wrapping them around your boquet?

If it’s long enough for you to wrap it around twice then yes but I’m not sure about one long strand though.
I think this would be cute
but depends on your style & colours. Otherwise I say something sentimental wins.
