    I think it would be perfect (and quite beautiful) without the large pendant hanging down.  Any necklaces like that that you like?

    I think it will really depend on the length of the necklace. Also.. it looks very similar (maybe even the same?) as the one ms. octopus just posted about yesterday and she said that it didn’t look so “bold” in person. I’m inclined to think it’ll be just fine…. although I’d maybe go lighter with earrings then? 

     

    Also, who made your dress? so pretty!

    I don’t necessarily think it would be too busy, but I think I’m generally more of a fan of simplicity.  I think that necklace could take away from the pretty detail of your dress.

    LOVE YOUR DRESS ! I’m thinking you have the rigtht idea, only something more delicate (smaller in size all around) would add elegance without taking away from you or your dress ! I’m sure there are daintier versions around !

    Oh wait? You want this necklace in purples and grey? Personally, I’m not a fan of colored jewerlly with a wedding dress unless it’s your something blue. I’m not helping, am I ? 🙁

    I prefer the second necklace you posted, no real reason except that it’s just more my style. I don’t think that either necklace would necessarily be too busy with the dress, but the dress definitely doesn’t need a necklace. Have you considered wearing dramatic earrings instead?

    I also prefer the second.  I’m not sure how they look on but just in my head a drop necklace wouldn’t look good with your dress while a choker with a shot of color would look super awesome.

    I think it’s the ruffles that makes me think that cause I do agree, usually a sweetheart and drop go together.  But I’m really no fashionista so don’t take my opinion too seriously.  I think it’s not a busy necklace on it’s own but with your dress it just doesn’t quite match or something.

    I think your mom is correct. With the ruffled neckline, I think you should stay away from the drop style necklaces. I understand where you are coming from as far as the blemish thing too. I am also very fair and will definately be wearing a necklace mostly for that reason. I think that if you got rid of the drop on the first necklace, it would be perfect.
