    Yes, I think you would look lovely. You can have pearls if you want!

    @weim-love:  Go for it! I love that necklace. I’m guessing your earrings are simples studs? That will look gorgeous together!

    Definitely but maybe consider wearing simple studs so that they aren’t over-powering with the necklace…but I say go for the necklace, it’s unique and not many girls can pull it off:)

    I would not wear a necklace with your dress.  It’s beautiful and has a lot of detail and texture. You don’t want a necklace to compete with that.

    OP, I think the statement necklace + belt is too much. The designs are so similar that it’ll almost look like you are wearing two belts (at least the way I picture it in my head). I say, wear one or the other, but not both. Belt/sash + necklace is typically overkill on the accesorizing for me (esp. once you add earrings, veil, bracelet, etc.).

    I prefer no necklace, but I understand that’s just my preference. If you have your heart set on a necklace, you might try a simple drop necklace or one with a thinner, more distinct design:

    I would go with a simple necklace. You don’t want to take away from that belt and those ruffles!

    @MlleFabuleux:  +1. While that necklace is absolutely gorgeous, and I love bling, I think what you have on now in the picture is just right – classic, elegant and timeless. Gorgeous dress!

    Simple necklace. Anything too overbearing might take away from your face.

    I think the statement necklace is lovely, but too much with your amazing belt, bracelet and really pretty earrings. I agree with another bees comment. Just wear simple studs to even out the look. It’s wonderful.
