    The top of my gown is very detailed. I decided not to take away from it and just wear a bracelet and earings

    I’m thinking no because my dress has a headily beaded boddice and I will be wearing statement earrings + a hair piece, so I’m afraid of overdoing it. That said, I haven’t seen my dress in 8 months so if I decide I need a necklace, I’d probably get something small and delicate so it doesn’t compete with my dress

    No necklace for this bride; I have a lace jacket that goes over my gown and I felt that it would be too much and take away from the dress  = )

    I ended up not wearing a necklace.  My dress had detailed lacey straps, I had a veil and a flower in my hair, a sparkly bracelet, and dangly earrings.  I felt like a necklace was unnecessary and may have gotten caught on people’s shirts when I was hugging/dancing.

    I’m wearing a double strand pearl necklace with mine. Somehow it just makes the whole look (with the birdcage) complete. But my dress is pretty tame – lace and rouching with no beading or sparkle at all.

    No necklace. My dress is heavily beaded on the bodice so I felt a necklace would be “too much”

    No I went for statement earrings and a bracelet. I love the idea of statement necklaces with dresses that have plain bodices but my dress had detail on the bodice so I skipped the necklace.

    First Wedding (circa 1980) … a strand of pearls I inherited from my Maternal Gramma (LOVED that woman, and missed her, she had passed the year before).  Went with my pearl stud earrings.

    This time round… went with a single pearl drop.  It matched my pearl drop earrings.

    Pearls are a Wedding Classic… but so are Diamonds… or anything that sparkles… Rhinestones, Swarovski Crystals etc.

    Altho there are certainly Brides who opt for more modern Statement pieces.

    OR if you have a high neck dress… or one that has a lot of details on the bodice, then a Necklace isn’t always a necessity.

    Hope this helps,
