Here is the Bridesmaid or Best Man gowns we picked (Allure 1221 in Royal Blue): http://www.theknot.com/bridesmaid-dress/allure-bridesmaids/1221
Since the top of my gown has pearl and crystal beading (and our main colors are blue and white), I was thinking some kind of delicate pearl necklace for my girls. Which one, is the question:
Option 1: more of a statement necklace, although I think it’s delicate enough. Different than the average pearl necklace.
Option 2: also makes a statement. I think the clasp is nice…
Option 3: super delicate, which I think would look very nice.
Option 4: probably my least fav of the group, but also a nice pearl necklace. pretty standard.
I appreciate your votes and feedback!

I really like the first one 🙂

Thanks! I think I should just rule out option #4, but was curious to see what others would think.

I’m almost considering necklace #1 for my Maid/Matron of Honor and #3 for the other BMs (4). Thoughts?

My personal favorites, in order: #2, #1, #4, #3. For the record, I was a bridesmaid in a wedding where we got a simple pearl strand necklace and earring set from the bride. I wear mine ALL THE TIME. I am in looooove with it. I hadn’t had anything like that before and I was blown away by it. So just wanted to say you’re an awesome bride!!! Also, the dress is beautiful and simple, so I think even though the first two are a little more “statement-y” than the other two, they would still look fantastic 🙂

Thanks! you just made my day, Sunnyday278 🙂
good point about how the dress and necklaces would work together…it’s kind of like what they suggest with the makeup (bolder lip with more neutral eyes, and vice versa). so much to consider! since when did we sign up for all this decision making?! lol…

I am currently THE minority LOL. I liked the single strand with crystals…The first one was more dressy, and I would feel like I could only wear it sometimes. The illusion necklaces, I’ve had get tangled with my long hair, so VERY annoying when wearing. And since I’m not the type to dress up often, the others would make me feel over dressed, whereas the single strand, could easily blend in with anything I have.
But honestly, overall they’re all very gorgeous! I’m wanting the side clasp type for myself for the wedding, but I’m also arguing with myself, for the above reasons. I’d probably never wear it, unless FH took me somewhere special, LOL.

I didn’t take into consideration that the illusion necklaces could get tangled like that…mmm…
Pearls, in general, seem pretty dressy to me (no matter which option I pick). Out of our group, at least 3 out of the 5 would wear the necklace again (I think), and maybe less with the other 2 girls…but that would be with any dressier jewelry.
I’m gifting them the necklace, but otherwise, I would be all over the wear-it-again factor. 🙂
