I was hoping for some opinions. I ordered my dress and I’m patiently waiting for it to come in. In the mean time I am trying to figure out how to accessorize my dress. I already purchased my earrings but now I’m really undecided if I should wear a necklace because I have always planned on wearing a small jeweled head band. My earrings are kind pretty blingy, and I’m thinking it would be too much to wear a necklace with these earrings and a jeweled headband…but would my neck look bare without one? I always wear necklaces so it would be strange not to wear one on my wedding day.
Some pictures to get an idea of what I’m talking about..
Dress w/ veil & headband
Thanks in advance for any input!

If you always wear necklaces and would feel weird without one, then go for it! You can definitely find something very simple to compliment your dress and earrings, while at the same time not overwhelming.
Something like this:

I think a jeweled headband + big necklace might be too much, like there’s a continous loop around your face.
How are you planning on wearing your hair? Up or down? If you wear it down, I don’t think you need a necklace. If you wear it up, maybe a simple necklace could look nice?
It also depends what style you are going for. Some people love lots of bling everywhere and would say go for all three: headband, earings, necklace! If you’re going for a more understated or softer look, then I’d remove one of the three to make sure the jewelry doesn’t ‘wear’ you 🙂
ETA: Saw the above poster’s necklace suggestion and would say that yes, a simple necklace like that would be nice!

If you’re wearing drop earrings, I vote no necklace.

nicoleylo: Your dress is beautiful! I think with the belt, and earrings and jeweled headband, that will be enough. But if you really want a necklace, then go for it! Perhaps something very simple, as pp’s stated.

nicoleylo: I agree with you, I think a necklace with the headband and earrings would be too much. Also, the neckline of your dress is really pretty, I think it already draws the eye up. A necklace would just take away from it.

I think if you wear your hair up you should do a simple necklace. If it is down skip it.

I agree with PPs who say the neckline on your dress looks better without a necklace, especially since you will have such a pretty headpiece as a focal point. But if you are set on wearing one, a simple one won’t be bad!

TaraMay_: I agree. I like a simple but pretty necklace like the one you posted.

I wouldn’t do a necklace with a headband. If I were to do a necklace with a strapless dress, it’d be one of those big statement ones. A friend did a big, multistrand pearl necklace with a sweetheart neckline and it looked amazing.

no necklace. I had a sweetheart neckline, huge blingy earrings, and jeweled flower pins in my hair. My hair was down.

I would wear something simply for a necklae, nothing that will overpower those gorgeous earrings and that neckline!

Thank you all for your input!! so I think i’ll take most of your advice and go no necklace. I could always look for a simple bracelet if I feel I need more sparkle

I love your dress. I would go with a pretty headache, earrings, and bracelet.

Your dress looks fine without a necklace. I love the skirt of your dress!
If you feel strange without a necklace and want 1, I would suggest a simple pendant necklace, wear those earrings and your jewelled headband, you look stunning. Maybe try to avoid a bracelet as you never know how many tears you make in your skirt until after the wedding…
