I think you could go without a necklace. That dress is very pretty. If you do feel like you need one, you could get something like this but it’s not necessary:

kelbrimale :  I suggest going very simple with the accessories, and to focus on pearls: a pair of earrings such as the ones below, and a pearl headband with a very “clean” design:

kelbrimale :  I wore a low cut dress. A pendant cross (probably 1/2 – 1 inch), stud diamond earrings and a simple bangle (my something borrowed).

I wore copper nail polish next to my white gold rings. Mixed metals is no problem.

I wouldn’t wear any jewellery with that dress! Doesn’t need it at all imo.

I love your dress! It could just be the lighting in that picture, but I think the white overlay and almost taupe-y gray layer underneath would go really well with silver jewelry! That’s not to say you can’t go with rose gold if you like it.

I would skip earrings and maybe go with a very delicate, feminine necklace, possibly echoing the flower motif in your dress.

If you have relatives/friends who do wear jewelry, you could always ask someone to lend you a piece for the day and make it your “something borrowed” if you don’t have one yet and want to follow that tradition. Just remember it’s all optional!

And if you’re not a jewelry person, but still want something more than the veil and the dress, you could try a simple sash, or a headband, or even a floral crown/hair flowers! Any of those can be a way to add some color in as well, if you want to. And when else can you wear a flower crown, lol!

kelbrimale :  I think mixing metals won’t be a problem, it’s actually pretty popular to mix. Plus, it’s you choice on what you want to wear. If you want to wear jewelry for your day, then do that. If you don’t want to but feel like you need to then don’t be pressured! In the end, do what you think will absolutely make you happiest!

I’d be tempted to let that dress stand on its own, without any additional accessories.
