I need your help. I’ve been stumbling around for months trying to find a nice necklace to wear with my gown. My gown is pretty “statement-y”, especially around the neckline so I don’t know what to wear with it! My gown is sort of an ivory/off-white color. I REALLY like big necklaces.
Etsy has a lot of great options, I’m just wondering what you guys think? Every time I ask family or friends if they like this or that, I just get “pick whatever you like!” and it’s driving me loco.
(The necklace in the picture is just something I threw on at the salon..I don’t really like it!)

I think you could still wear a big statement necklace. If that’s your style, and so is the dress, then they’ll compliment each other! As long as they’re not competing, I’m sure it will be fine. You could either match the bling on your neckline, or match the tones of the dress and go for pearls. Maybe something like this? http://www.etsy.com/listing/109152980/ivory-braided-pearl-statement-necklace?ref=sr_gallery_15&ga_search_query=pearl+statement+necklace&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_ref=auto1&ga_search_type=all
One more thing to look out for: try to give yourself some space between the necklace and the neckline. So try a necklace that doesn’t hang too low. Good luck! 🙂

@KendraLeigh: The necklace that you wear in picture it could be nice with single line version.

Would you consider no necklace and big chandelier blingy earrings? I think your dress is such a statement that a necklace might compete too much?

I am a fan of big necklaces as well, but because of the bling around the neckline, I would consider making a statement with your other jewelry. Would you consider doing a great bracelet and earrings and not wearing a necklace? I think a statement necklace will take away from the statement neckline of your dress.

I think a statment necklace would go well with it, something glitzy and beautiful. Anything thin and dainty will look out of proportion with such a dramatic dress and your beautiful tattoos.
Gorgeous dress by the way!

I also say no necklace, and statement earrings

I agree with Caroheart. A necklace just takes away from that beautiful embellished neckline and your lovely tattoo (which I see as artistic decor). A fabulous pair of earrings would look great

In your place I would wear no necklace, hair up, and statement earrings.

@KendraLeigh: I’d skip a necklace actually b/c there is a lot of beaded detail along the bustline I think it would be too much. I do a nice pair of statement earrings and a nice blingy bracelet!
If you are set on a necklace I would keep it very simple!

Thanks for the feedback, ladies:)
I think I am going to TRYYYY to keep it simple (it’s very hard for me to keep anything simple..) but I see what you guys are saying about how the bust in all detail-y..I don’t want to take away from the dress!
