Hi Bees! I need some opinions on statement necklaces for my BMs. This is their dress: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Strapless-Crinkle-Chiffon-Peplum-Dress-with-Brooch-F15515?cm_vc=Search in Black. (btw can you believe that price!!!! $80 & it fits all my girls different body types amazing) Since the dress is black I was thinking a bold necklace would pull the whole outfit together. How do you ladies feel about bold necklaces on BMs? The only issue I’m having now is finding AFFORDABLE statement pieces. I have 6 girls and I just can’t spend $25+ on each necklace.
Any ideas of where I can find some affordable pieces?

SM_xo: Have you thought about DIY? These are a couple of necklaces I made all for under $20

Search for “statement necklace” or “bubble necklace” on AliExpress and DHGate. You will find tons for just a few dollars a piece. I love the idea of bold necklaces with black dresses.

I personally really hate the ultra matchy look- it just kind of creeps me out. I don’t like the completely mismatched look either- that looks sloppy. I like matching either the dresses or the accessories. I think a big statement necklace might look like too much on all the girls- especially because there are distintive details on their dress. My maid of honor, my sister, will be the only one wearing one. It is a special statement necklace given to her my our grandmother and it will distinguish her from the other bridesmaids.

housebee: I love DIY but necklaces for the wedding are a little different. I would never be able to DIY what I’m looking for.
MOHlookingForIdeas: great! thanks so much – going to check out those websites now.
mgbser: I’m thinking statement because the dress is SO plain & solid black. I have a very young & fun bridal party and I think just plain kind of looks boring. I don’t want anything over the top either – maybe just a pop of color.

SM_xo: There are lots of necklaces in your price range at places like Forever21, H&M, Charlotte Russe.
Because of the rhinestone bow at the waist, I would stay away from rhinestone necklaces- at least clear ones, and likely choose an all black necklace.

SM_xo: I love the blue necklace. If you pick a color other than black, I would remove the rhinestone pin, although that would be a shame as it is so cute. You could pin it on a clutch.

Jewlery TV, jtv.com. I’ve had great luck with them.

whenever I see photos of a bride with her bridal party and all the bms are wearing statement necklackes, the first thing my eye is drawn to is the necklaces. And my first thought is usually, “WHY did they wear those!?” Sorry, just my opinion! I realize they are somewhat wedding trendy right now.

julies1949: thanks! I agree – I def would have to use those pins for something else because they are so cute!
sassy411: thanks! Will ck them out!
raspberrymojito: everyone has their own opinion on all things wedding, I still appreciate your opinon 🙂 I don’t think statement necklaces are so much a trend as they are just trying to add a little pop of style to something that is plain – as my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are.
