Ok ladies, I would like to know what you are doing about jewelry. What kind of necklace will you be wearing if any? What kind of neck line is your dress and is that influencing your necklace/non necklace choice. I think i’m doing the no necklace thing personally, just wanted to know what you girls think. I have a strapless straight neckline dress, by the way. thinking of just doing bling-y long earrings.

My dress has a sweetheart neckline (Mori Lee 1601) and I always think that if you have that sort of neckline that a necklace is a must. In my FI’s religion (we are getting married Orthodox) his godparents must buy the bride and groom something gold. His godparents are buying us gold and diamond crosses. So that is what i am wearing. If you ahve a straight across neckline, I would think just big blingy earrings would be okay. You should post a pic of your dress so we could give you some better advice!

No necklace here either. My neckline is strapless sweatheart and I prefer the look of a bare neck/upper chest. IMO is looks a bit more elegant without a necklace. I have blingy earrings and a bracelet as my accessories!

My dress is the Kendra from Maggie Sottero, with sweatheart neckline. I love it with some blinged out earings and a bracelet.

My dress was a sweetheart, but mostly I just did an earrings and a necklace because there was a lot of beading and crystals at the top of the dress. We tried a couple different necklaces, but they were all too busy.

@jo.lee:yeah I agree, the more beading, the less jewelry you need, you did the smart thing! I hate to see women so over the top that they look like drag queens,lol.

I have a strapless sweatheart neckline. I’m wearing a simple strand of pearls and simple pearl and diamond earrings and a plain bracelet. I’ve never really had a dream wedding or dream wedding dress, but I had a dream pearl necklace. =) And the earrings just matched well and it’s a tradition for parents to gift their daughter a bracelet on their wedding day, no clue why, just what they said.
Edit: there’s no beading on my dress, just ruching and a textured skirt.

If your doing blingy earings I would suggest no necklace. I had a strapeless gown with a soft sweet heart neckline and wore matching Dantela Necklace and Bracelet. For Earrings I went simple and wore some sunburst stud earrings.

I did a necklace and bracelet, but because I don’t have pierced ears!

My dress has a sweetheart neckline.
I plan to wear diamond or pearl or a mix of the two earrings.
Brooch in my hair and hopefully a cuff or bracelet.
No Necklace for me.

Several different sales people at the various dress shops I visited told me no necklace, they said it would make my neck look longer/thinner without one.

No big jewelry for me because my dress is foofy enough… just maybe blingy studs… plus, I want the focus to be on me, my dress, and my wedding rings. But I’m not that big of a jewelry girl anyway 🙂
