Would it look weird if I wore my grandmothers watch on ym wedding day? Below is my dress- but it will be in ivory. I want to wear something of hers and I have a strand of her pearls but I dont think I want to wear a necklace.. I bought a pair of Tiffany starfish earrings (so beautiful), and then was thinking about just wearing the watch with my BFF infinity bracelet. Too simple? Too weird? What do you think? Would you wear pearls with this dress? Its a beach wedding, btw.
The watch is stainless steel and stretches around my wrist like a bracelet- I need to get it cleaned but its really beautiful.

I think that sounds lovely. The only real thing I had of my grandma’s to use was a fake pearl brooch, so I put it on my bouquet. The watch sounds terrific!

I wore my grandmother’s watch with my wedding dress. A watch isn’t your typical choice, but if it is special to you, I think you should do it. I’m certainly glad I did!

@xcarley: Not weird at all. I think it’s a lovely “something old,” and formal watches are fabulous accessories. I will say that I am biased, as I plan on wearing a vintage watch as part of my jewelry, as well. 😀

I think it’s both beautiful-sounding, snd symbolic!
I love the idea.

I love that idea as well, I wish I could wear my grandmas gold watch – but it’s too loose for me to feel comfortable wearing it (would be devastated if I lost it). If you feel more comfortable in the watch instead of the necklace, I think you should go with it.

I say go for it! I’m planning on wearing a vintage watch my mother gave me in high school- I just have to get the faceplate replaced….. Beach wedding as well (can’t wait!)

The bracelet sounds lovely. Or, you could wrap the necklace around your wrist as a bracelet…or around your bouquet as a bouquet wrap.

@eocenia: take it to a store and have it fitted! there is no point in having it if it will be just in a drawer

I love the idea of wearing your grandmother’s watch. Very sentimental and Different. If you wished to wear the pearls as well, they’d be appropriate for a beach wedding as pearls are nautical and simple.

Wear the watch. It sounds petite and classy. 🙂
