I’m torn about what to kind of jewellery to wear with my lace fit-n-flare dress. I’m wearing a cathedral veil and small pearl earrings (gift from MIL). I’m thinking of wearing a chunkier pearl bracelet, should I just stick with that or find a necklace as well?
Show me pics of what you wore on your wedding day!!

Here is my dress:
Here is the jewelry I will be wearing:
I bought it because I think it goes well with the belt I am wearing.
I was going to do pearls, but once I decided on the belt the pearls didn’t really go with it.

I have pearls. But mine have very little lace and more tulle! Yours might be good with more bling

@laceandpearls10: I have an allover lace gown and a lace-edged cathedral veil (sorry, the only pics I have so far are from the back when we were working on the veil, but you can see the detail on the lace sleeve and part of the skirt).
I have a necklace from my maternal great-grandmother that came to me through my grandma and mom (ivory-colored pearls), and a pair of old-gold earrings from my paternal grandmother that, through great good luck, coordinate beautifully with the headpiece I’m wearing:

Here are my accessories. Just found out my Mom bought me a Nadri bracelet and I’m sooo excited, it sparkles like crazy!
I say no to necklace, especially with a cathedral veil or if you want a statement necklace save it for a reception when veil is off. But I’m partial to the beauty of bare neck with a lovely gown. I think pearls work very well with lace.

thanks everyone, this is very helpful. I think the idea of waiting to put a necklace on at the reception is genius, I never would have thought to do two different looks!!
