i didnt. our planner did to keep us on schedule. but i didnt know their were “rules” about it. but if you are going to hear it from someone a bridal lady would be a good person. she probably knows all the rules.

There are some beautiful ones out there and if I normally wore a watch, I would have worn one of those beautiful ones that looks more like a bracelet.

I think it’s better NOT to wear a watch. Afterall, the jewelry worn that day should match your dress and other accesssories. I would find it strange to see a bride with a watch on her arm, just like I find it odd when I see a bride with a handbag..

I wear a watch everyday. I didn’t for the wedding because of looks and I was freaking out. I wish I would worn it. I didn’t like not knowing what time it was! LOL.

At the time I got married, I wore a watch all the time.  Now, because of my job, I rarely wear one.  If you have a very nice, small, dainty watch, then I would wear it, but IMO most don’t look good with a wedding dress.

ETA: Forgot to say I did NOT wear one on my wedding day.  There are enough people around you with watches/cell phones and probably enough clocks on the wall to keep you calm.  I didn’t freak out at all.  If you’re really worried about it, put a watch in your purse to check.  When you walk down the aisle, you can leave it behind, (I’m sure you won’t worry about the time when you’re speaking your vows!) until after the ceremony, then have it to check at the reception if you need/want to.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bride wear a watch.

I don’t think I have ever seen a bride wear a watch, but if it were wone like the PP post said the mimiced a bracelet, MAYBE, but not a watch that you would have for everyday wear. could you imagine the bride onthe alter looking at her watch to see if the recetion would start on time, lol

I wear a watch 24/7.

I took it off for the wedding and wore a bracelet (on my other wrist). My watchless wrist remained bare.

If you do wear one, make sure it is dainty and pretty and not blatantly a watch. It’s more formal without one.:)

@msjujubeans: that watch definitely looks like a watch to me.

If you must have one, I would suggest a dressy bracelet watch, a watch with a flip open face, or a brooch watch that you can pin inside your dress.

I know there is no size perspective, the picture you posted of the CK watch definitely looks like a watch…a very large, clunky watch.  Also, the color does not say “Wedding-wear!” to me.  It’s your wedding, so of course wear what you want, but I would recommend something more like the first photo julies1949 posted.

Personally I would not wear a watch.  If you need to keep time either have your cell phone tucked away somewhere or have someone else keep an eye on time
