    Hi! Beautiful dress! First of all, I am not sure of your body frame, but if you’re comfy enough – I would leave your neck bare! That dress has soooo much going on, and you want it to be a focus, a necklace would just not benefit your look, imo. You could do beautiful earrings though …

    I do see a lot of strapless dresses without necklaces, so that might be a good option too.  I do really like the Flora Bella and Multi Strand necklaces you posted though.

    I was also going to ask about your body frame.  If you’re a bit on the bigger/more muscular side, I’d say the multi-strand or Heirloom (what I meant to vote for, I accidentally clicked rose jardin).  But if you’re smaller I’d opt for simpler.  Maybe even a small pearl pendant, or definitely a light single strand like the last one.  It also depends a bit on how big/formal your wedding will be.

    I guess we cross posted.  Since you’re on the petite side (just a bit taller than me), I’m wondering if the necklaces with the big roses/flowers on them might be too overpowering.  I have a tiny neck, so I think they’re lovely but they would completely swamp me.  I’m thinking now something more delicate which could still be the swarovski multi strand.

    Check out this site for some ideas:

    I like the Illusion 3-strand and the  Dangling off-white pearl.  If you want higher quality materials you could probably ask someone at Etsy.

    I love the lace that comes up over the bustline of your dress.  I think you should just get a pair of fabulous earrings and skip the necklace.  I really think it will be too much going on with all that beautiful lace!

    I think I agree with others. Skip the necklace and get a pair of fabulous earings!

    I like the idea of no necklace…but on the other hand, if you would like one,go for something simple (like a small pear shaped or tear drop)

    I think that if the necklace is relatively small that it won’t interfere with your dress. Of the above, Flora Bella is my personal choice – I’d do a pair of tiny pearl drop earrings with it. Like these but maybe even simpler, and ivory or white, depending on your dress color. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9081426
