I’m trying to figure out whether or not to get a statement necklace and small earrings, or statement earrings and no necklace with my dress. My dress is pretty simple.
My bridesmaids will be wearing statement necklaces (below) with light green dresses (also below).
Also, we’re having a destination wedding in Bermuda. What do you think would look best on me– statement necklace or earrings??? Thanks so much!!

@BK11: I’m swooning over your BM necklaces over here! Where can I get one?
I like the idea of a statement necklace with your dress, as long as it’s not too too big, but the statement earrings route would be awesome as well. Either way, I love it!

I vote earrings, simply because it’s a destination wedding where its hot. I think a necklace would feel too heavy especially considering your dress is so light and pretty. I wouldn’t wantnew big necklace around my neck while I was all hot and sweaty. I vote earrings.

Thanks for your votes and opinions! I got my bridesmaid necklaces from Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/listing/113079263/petite-twisted-vintage-statement). The woman who made them, Jessica, was very helpful and she can do many different colors and styles. I hope that helps!

I’m not really a necklace-wearer so I went with big earrings. But I do love some of the statement necklaces I’ve seen lately, I also have a friend who’s only wearing the statement necklace for the reception because she’s worried with veil and everything for the ceremony it would be too much.

I think either could work. Can you bring a pair of big earrings and a chunky necklace to your fitting and see which you like better? Trying things on with my dress changed my opinion a lot.

I like the idea of statement earrings and a smaller necklace. This is what I wore:

I like the necklace, and I think a big necklace like that is very flattering when wearing a dress with a strapless neckline

I’m a fan of statement necklaces so I vote for that. What will your hair look like? I would base your accessories on your hairdo. i.e. updo with with statement earrings; down hairstyle with statement necklace

Thanks for all of your help! I will be wearing my hair up. I’m thinking I will bring a pair of statement earrings and a statement necklace to my next fitting and see what I like best. I also like the idea of wearing the earrings during the ceremony with the veil, and then wearing the necklace during the reception without the veil. Thanks again!

I also LOVE the bridesmaid necklaces, too!

I love statement necklackes…but there is something I love about statement earrings and no necklace with strapless dresses too. I vote for the earrings.
