The Allure c207 is my dress. It is very detailed and (excuse me for being biased) gorgeous. My gramma has asked if I would like to wear her Mikimoto pearl necklace and button earrings so how can I say no to that? I was just wondering if you bees think it would look alright with my dress? I wanted something simple from the get go as far as a necklace but I was thinking drop earrings. I am putting my hair up in a side swept loose, romantic updo and a headpiece that a friend is making for me. So what does everyone think?

@MissP_Bee: Very delicate pears. Nothing too big or bulky

I would wear pearls but maybe not a full strand. Perhaps a silver chain with a pearl pendant or just a few pearls on it. And I really think that there should be something hanging in the middle of the necklace to compliment the gorgeous V-neck (maybe you can temporarily loop something to hang in the middle of the strand from your grandmother?). I love your dress!

My dress’s neckline was very similar, and it was lace, and I wore pearls! I wasn’t going to wear a necklace, but DH bought me GORGEOUS pearls as my wedding gift. I couldn’t not wear them.

I think a fine beaded crystal necklace and drop earrings would be so pretty but if you are going to hurt your grandmother’s feelings, wear the pearls.
GORGEOUS dress, btw! I am in love with it.

Wear your grandmother’s pearl necklace, as long as it isn’t too bulky or a bad length, but get pearl drop earrings.

Wear your Grandmas pearls! I think they will look beautiful with your dress and it will be so special for both of you.
(My dress is quite similar to yours and I’m planning on wearing my grandmother’s pearl neacklace and earings as well.)

Just a suggestion if your grandmother would allow for it – you can restring your pearls into a bracelet. This way you get to wear her pearls but it won’t take away from this dress. I think pearls are great for brides but you have to be careful that it may be to much. I liked the idea of drop earrings with this dress.

Yes pearls would be perfect though better than that, you will be wearing your grandmas jewlery! Which I think is wonderful and then maybe your grand daughter will wear them on her wedding day 🙂 ( assuming you want to wear them that is)
i don’t have any grandparents left, but I would love to where something of theirs!

I bet the necklace is more meaningful to grandma than the earrings. Since drop earrings would look so much prettier, I recommend explaining that you have other earrings in mind, but would be honored to wear the necklace. I would be very surprised if she objected.
