Do not wear that watch!  It just looks too “everyday”.  I don’t usually wear one anyway, but if you need one then I like the other ones posted on here.  Ones that look like bracelets etc.

I’ve never seen a bride in a watch that didn’t make me cringe.

1st – don’t freak out.  This is a minor issue.  I’ve never seen a bride wear a watch – not to say you personally can’t.  There are no rules.  Typically most brides think that a watch doesn’t go with the bridal look.  If you have a DOC or planner they’ll keep track of time.  Photos of brides looking at their watches aren’t usually adored!  eak what does that symbolize?! 

I personally had my iphone in my pocket the entire time!  My dress had pockets and my iphone was 100% concealed so I carryed it with me – even during the cermemony – nobody knew!

for the last few years i’ve ALWAYS worn my watch, but I’ve just recently decided to stop wearing it so that my tan evens out for the wedding, 4 months early, does that sound a bit OCD? lol

I didn’t wear one… I wear one EVERY day, but it just didn’t work with the dress!

I would consider wearing a Badgley Mischka watch…. Some of them are so lovely and don’t even look like watches!

I didnt have a watch. I did have a clutch but my moh carried it the entire time.

But there are some nice bracelet watches that would work, and I was constantly wishing I knew what time it was… so if I could redo it I might have worn a watch

I’ve never seen a bride wear a watch. Unless it was a VERY nice watch I can’t see how it would look good with the whole bridal look.

I’m going to wear a watch, because I ALWAYS wear this watch.  considering it’s an antique, gold and black, and if flipped with the face down looks like a bracelet, I’m thinking I’m fine.  

It’s as much a part of me as my e-ring.  I’ve even been known to wear it when the battery died/dies.  It’s THAT important to me.  I DREAD the day it finally dies and requires a new crystal (I’ll probably cry and refuse to part with it, lol).  It will also match the theme and my dress just fine.


The watch in question, however, looks like a watch.  I agree with the others, that a more dainty, fancy watch would go better.

If you’re trying to cover up a burn mark and wouldn’t even be wearing the watch to keep track of time, why not just wear a pretty bracelet?  I’m on board with the bridal lady and would find it extremely odd for someone to wear a watch on their wedding day.  I’ve NEVER seen that done.

A friend of mine wasn’t going to wear a watch, but she was offered a gorgeous antique bracelet type one that ended up being her something old and something borrowed.  So you definitely can wear a watch…but I agree that it should be in keeping with your other bridal accessories.
