    I love pearls. I think the style depends on your dress, but longer is often better for the brides I have seen in the past. What does your dress look like?

    I dont have A seperate photo, so i apologize for giving you my entire collage lol but here is my necklace and dress (and everything else… ).  i would love to wear pearls but my mother wont let me. (Apparently theres some old myth that is bad luck ) so i chose a bling necklace that is similar to a strand of pearls to get a similar look.

    MrsYoshida:  I’m wearing a crystal necklace, but I think it depends on your dress! Some dresses look better with pearls and some look better with something else.

    What does your dress look like?

    I wore a big statement crystal necklace. If I had put a poll up of my dress beforehand asking if I should go with a stmt necklace the vote would probably have been no because I had so much detail in my dress. But I did it anyway because it was so ME. So I think it depends on the dress and on your personal style. You want it to be individualized, not like the next girl wearing that dress will look the same way.

    I Would post a pic but those pics aren’t on my phone and the new WB doesn’t save old images you posted any longer. … what the crap?

    I am either going to wear a sapphire necklace that my FI got me, or something tbd from my grandmother. 

    i don’t have a picture of the necklace from FI, this is the same one tho, mine is just sapphire not amethyst.

    I think my strand of pearls was 17 inches.  I tried cropping a picture to show the necklace with my dress, but my boobs just ended up being the center of the photo, and I’m not sure I want to upload that to WB without the power to delete it later.

    What does your dress look like?  What necklace looks good will all depend on that.

    I wore an heirloom pearl necklace my grandmother had given me, it was my “something old” and was my way of including her in the wedding.

    I am wearing a pretty simple dress, so I thought about playing around with my jewelry.  I too have always envisioned wearing pearls, but since I chose a simple dress, I wanted to add color and personality to my jewelry.  I think these two necklaces kinda do that without being too distracting.

    I think for YOU to decide what jewelry you are going to wear, you need to take into account your dress style and the overall look you are going for.  I don’t think you can go wrong with either of the neckalces you posted about since pearls are pretty classic and IMO go with most everything!

    I don’t have a good picture of it, but I wore a tiny, delicate necklace my mom wore on her wedding day! I wasn’t planning on wearing a necklace, but that was too sweet to pass up! They are still married many years later, so lots of good ju ju there!

    I’m not a blingy or pearl person – I went with a chunky turquoise necklace.  Loved it!

    I also only have my “real look” board. All of these items are what I’m using/wearing.

    MrsYoshida:  i don’t have a picture, but my dress is a mermaid with a sweetheart neckline – i’m wearing a white gold chain with a single diamond solitaire that my grandmother gave to me as a wedding gift (it is the diamond that was in her engagement ring before she replaced it)…its so beautiful.
