I think it depends on your wedding budget for attire.  Did you save a lot on your dress, leaving you room for a necklace?  Personally, I would never spent $150 on a necklace any day of the week, but for my wedding, that might be a different story..

I personally wouldn’t. I don’t care for the peach ribbon. I think you can do better for less. In my opininon you are paying for the name. I would look more.

I would spend that much, but I wouldn’t spend it on that particular necklace.  Nor would I feel comfortable buying a name brand on ebay for that much.

 

What about this one from etsy? Similar style, way less.

$59.50, comes with earrings.

That’s not bad in my opinion.  It’s for your wedding!  Would you be able to wear it again?

Yep. But if I did I would minimize everything else to make it stand out. I spent 195 on my headband and I am not wearing a necklace (It would compete with my tattoo and the headband and way.) I am just wearng a bracelet and matching stud earrings.

I spent $125 on my necklace…but it was something so unique that no matter how much I looked, I couldn’t find anything else like it. It really depends how much you can spend and how much you want it. Maybe shop around some more before you make your decision?

I’m making my own by I’m spending 70+ on materials (currently in the process of deciding which ones to order). If I had someone else make it then the necklace would be $150-$200. If its a statement necklace and you can afford it then I would do it. Part of the reason I’m spending so much on mine is because I know I will wear it again.

I would.  If you find a piece that you love…go for it!!! It’s your wedding day! They way that I think of it is I’m only going to wear a dress that I paid $1500 for ONCE! All the accessories bracelet, necklace, shoes and earrings are what I get to wear again in everyday life.  I want those items to be of the utmost quality. If I have to pay I little extra for something that I will covet everytime I am lucky enough to take it out of the box…so be it. Kate Spade is a quality designer that has beautiful and quality peices. Its a beautiful necklace that you will get to love for many years. Buy it!

It all depends on your budget, however I would not,  even if my budget allowed me to spend that much. You can find a neclace just as beautiful for way less. The one bee posted a necklace and earring set on this thread for under $60 from etsy and its just as nice as the Kate Spade. I say shop around, if you can’t find anything else thats just as beautiful as the Kate Spade then buy it.

It depends on your budget. $150 for some might be extremely expensive and for others it might be pocket change. Personally, for me, spending $150 on a necklace is not expensive but I would really have to like the necklace.

I think its beautiful, can be worn again, and you should get it if its within your means.

I personally don’t like the necklace, but I also don’t think $150 is a lot. I think you could find something much nicer for that price.
