    I think earrings over necklace if you’re wearing your hair away from your face, necklace if you’re wearing it down. I would prefer up/earrings.

    Honestly, with this dress I would go for big earrings over big necklace., especially if you are going to be wearing a veil or headpiece as well.

    I definitely feel like the necklaces are too much with that dress.  To me, it feels like they are taking something away from the beautiful strapless neckline!  I voted for drop dangle earrings-the bigger, the better!  I think they would look beautiful, but would be far enough away from the dress to not interfere with it 🙂

    I didn’t vote because I can’t decide. I’m a fan of the big earrings/no necklace look, but I’m going to be wearing my hair up. I think with your hair down, the effect of big earrings won’t quite be the same. So I think simple earrings, but I can’t decide between simple necklace or big necklace. You should definitely try a few things on with your dress if you can. It makes a big difference to see things in person.

    I think it depends a lot on how long your torso is (i.e. how much space there is between your chin and the top of your dress), which is obviously different for everyone.  I have a really short torso and nice (I think!) shoulders, so I really wanted to wear big, dangling earrings and let the dress speak for itself.  My mom disagreed and there was a bunch of back and forth.  At my last dress fitting I wore a neckace (just my plain pearls because I never bought a necklace) and decided that earrings were definitely right for me.  HOWEVER, I have seen taller, longer torso-ed women in my dress with big necklaces, and they looked great.

    I also have a very intricate gown. And I have decided to wear a mantilla veil with 4″ beaded lace, so I am going to probably just wear stud pearl earrings and a very dainty necklace. I think you need to decide how you are going to wear your hair and if you are going to wear a veil, and if so, what type of veil or other hair ornament. If at all possible, try something on that you already own that is similar in size and shape to what you are considering with what you are wearing in your hair. That will give you a better idea of how they will look together.

    I’d say go with big earrings, no necklace since the top of your dress is beaded/lace.  Looks gorgeous on you!

    Have big earrings and a necklace. lots of girls worry about looking too bling, especially if they’re not normally used to wearing that much jewellery. but you’re the BRIDE, not just a girl… you need to really stand out, also for your pictures.
