    No watch for me, but if you feel naked without a watch, I say go for it!  There’s a lot of elegant evening watches out there that will look lovely.

    I think if I wore my watch I’d be obsessively checking the time to make sure things were happening on schedule…too much stress! Designate someone else to be a time keeper. Maybe you could get a really pretty bracelet so that your wrist doesn’t feel so naked? But if wearing your watch makes you feel more comfortable…like Miss Knitting says, go for it!

    i have a really nice gold watch that my dad gave to my mom as an engagement present (he couldn’t afford a ring at the time) and my mom doesn’t fit into it anymore so she gave it to me. i planned on wearing it 1) because of it’s meaning and 2) so i can know the time, but when i put everything on it just didn’t look right. and it’s probably best that i didn’t know what time it was, i’d be paranoid about being late but this way i just didn’t worry or care.

    I would say absolutely go for it, if you can find a dainty enough watch! I constantly wear a watch my FI gave me for Christmas; it’s two-tone yellow and white gold with 16 diamond’s around the watch-face.

    Originally I didn’t plan to wear anything on my wrist, but I’ve grown sooo accustomed to wearing my watch and I feel naked when my wrist is bare. However, the watch is a little too substantial, because my wrist is so small and the rest of the jewelery I will be wearing is so dainty and under-stated (diamond stud earrings, a thin gold chain with a small diamond and pearl pendant, and my engagement ring) I thought that the watch would draw the eye compared to the other jewelery. I decided to compromise and have purchased a small yellow-gold bracelet with diamonds and pearls.

    My something old is my grandma’s antique white gold and diamond watch. It’s extremely delicate and looks more like a pretty bracelet than a watch (the face on it is smaller than a dime).

    I wouldn’t wear my everyday watch though…it would be incongruous with the rest of my look for the wedding day.

    I say go for it!! I bought a really beautiful, dainty 1920s watch for $20 from etsy several months ago and I’m planning to wear it for the wedding. It just looks so pretty with my antique-style engagement ring and wedding band.

    You might try the vintage section of etsy for some lovely, delicate watches.

    I absolutely didn’t want a watch- but my grandma is letting me borrow her moms tiny platinum and diamond watch- looks more like a bracelet. I’m sure you could find one like that.
