I know you said a necklace is doable, but I think the lace of the halter is already a lot going on around your neck. If you do wear one, I would go with something simple and a drop/elongated style so it doesn’t look to closed up around your neck. I’ll edit in pics or examples.

I tried that dress on! It’s gorgeous in person, but my friend already bought the Karena Royale (strapless version) for her April wedding so it was not really an option.

Gogreous dress!  But, honestly, I think it has enough going on without a necklace.  it may take away from the amazing detailing around the neckline.  Maybe just some awesome earrings and a bracelet?

I stand by my no necklace comment after seeing the pic. I think it would take away from the lace.

I think the second would be my favorite because it is the simplest. I do still think that the halter lace neckline really doesn’t need a necklace, though!

I think I agree in that you don’t need one. But I love the ones Amaryllis posted if you were to do one.

We’re dress twins!! Hehe. I agree with others- you don’t necessarily need one (especially with the halter), but I think pearls would look lovely. Isn’t this dress just wonderful?? 🙂

I would say no necklace with that dress, just some nice earrings

I agree with the no necklace recommendations.  I think your neckline would look too crowded if you wore a necklace with a halter top dress.

I like how the model has drop earrings and a bracelet- the pin on the sash is nice too. Thats probably what I would stick with. However…

You could make this the perfect place to have your pop of something blue or something borrowed. A delicate heirloom necklace or something like these from etsy are nice too:
