Can’t decide if this is too matchy-matchy. The girls are all wearing black satin faced taffeta dresses by Jim Hjelm. Different styles, different lengths, beacuse I wanted everyone to LIKE their dress and feel good in it. I’m thinking that matching jewelry might help pull everyone’s looks together. Any thoughts ladies? Some of the potentials are below. I was thinking of having the flowers on the 2 necklaces done in different colors for the different girls.

I’m thinking of doing something similar for my non-matching ladies. I really like the pearl necklace. I like the dimensions and the off-set bead on one side. Very classy.

I’m a little torn about this too, but I know that personally I’m really picky about necklaces and the way they fit me… I might not feel my best in a necklace someone else picked out. Plus my ears are SUPER sensitive so I have to get special earrings. So if I were a bridesmaid, I’d like a little freedom with my accessories… and I want all of my girls to feel red-carpet-hot at my wedding (in the end, that’s what would make me the happiest, I think).
However, to my surprise, my bridesmaids seem to WANT to match, when I’ve been saying all along the last thing that I want is to force them into the same thing. They all liked the same dress, now they’re interested in the same shoes… I wanted to have some bracelets custom made that would be unique for each of them so they would have something different, but now I’m second guessing myself! Maybe I’m just lucky and most brides would prefer this, but I just love all my friends for how unique they are, and I think their comfort on my big day will help ME enjoy it even more.
But, I think I’m in the minority here. Most brides I’ve talked to disagree with my loosey-goosey take on attire… that being said, I really like gold necklace with the black flower. Very cute 🙂

I really like the pearl necklace. And since you’ve given them the liberty of picking dresses they would each wear again, they should be open to wearing matching jewelry to unify the look.
