I’d skip the watch. I don’t think it will look right. Unless it’s really dressy and formal and matches your wedding jewelry.

Well, people wear bracelets, right?  And a dress watch is just a bracelet that’s useful =)  I say if you think it looks fine, then it’s totally fine   I didn’t wear mine because the only watch I ever wear is a Timex ironman and even I knew that probably wasn’t best.  But I’m sure a dress watch would be fine.

I say do whatever makes you more comfortable.  I chose not to wear my watch purposefully because I didn’t want to be constantly worried about the time. BUT, if not knowing what time it is the day of your wedding is going to keep you off balence then I say wear it! Having a comfortable experience is going to be worth more to you then an annoying watch in the pictures (I would think). Also, if you think you’re going to hate the pictures if you have our watch on then keep it on for all the getting ready time and then designate someone to remind you to take it off before the ceremony and reception start. Good luck!

I say leave the watch behind…let others worry about the time for you…after all you are the bride and they can’t start without you, so for one day, don’t let time be a worry or concern.  Let others take care of it for you!

I’m wearing one. It’s a very dressy, sparkler by Carolee Bridal.It looks more like a bracelet than a watch. I bought it 5 years ago before I was even engaged, I just knew I wanted it!

I agree with livvie.   It’s your wedding, wear whatever you want.

You "can" do anything, it’s your wedding! That said, for me it would depend on the watch – a delicate dress watch would look great, but a clunky everyday watch would look out of place.

do what you want girl.. maybe start asking some of the mom’s if they have any pretty watches you can wear to tie in some tradition (or can be your something old!)

I personally would not wear a watch.  I don’t need to (or want to) know the time, and I don’t have a watch that is an heirloom or of significance to me.  When I look at wedding pictures, I don’t recall ever seeing a bride wearing a watch.  You certainly can if you want to… if your reasons are sentimental or aesthetic, that wear whatever you want.  If your reason is to know the time –  I would say do not wear it – let go and let other people know the time and schedule and you relax and enjoy your day.
