I’ve seen some GORGEOUS pictures of brides who forewent jewelry!  If you want to, go for it!  I bet it will look amazing.

I was going to go jewelry-less as well, but I’m going to wear “something borrowed” as a necklace – it’s a very simple chain with a single aquamarine that came from the same stone my engagement stone came from.  I gave the extra aquamarine on the necklace to my mom for her 60th birthday.

I feel naked when I dont have earring in…

But if your really not a jewelry person and only wish to wear your rings it would look lovely.  Not too mention the whole idea of the symbolism behind it.

I think you should go what you feel best in.  Your idea sounds lovely. 🙂

Moi!

I, too, loved my neckline and didn’t want to over-do it with jewelry; in my case, I really think less was more. I wore very simple crystal drop earrings (which I made) and a crystal sash — and that’s it.

A beaded headband alone will add quite a bit of texture and detail. Don’t feel like you have to wear tons of accessories; sounds like you will look just lovely!

I only wore my rings and two small pearl studs as earrings. I had a fairly high neckline that I wanted to stand out. I say go for it!!

If I find some plugs that are fancy/I like enough I will do that, but my neckline is decked out in crystals, so no necklace here. Bracelets don’t generally fit my wrists, either.

I say go for it. I only wore a delicate white gold chain with a small locket on it.

That could look very elegant. Are you wearing a veil or headpiece? Maybe you should wear small pearl studs or rhinestones in your ears to bring a little fanciness above the neck but still keep it simple.

If you like the neckline, than you could stick to some simple earings. The right pair makes the face glow!!!

One bridal store I went to said necklaces should not be worn with wedding dresses – I’d never heard of this before, but now I totally get it.

It’s all about the dress – I’ve got quite a blinged up dress already and think anything else would be overdoing it. Post a pic of your dress / headband & we can vote!

@mel801:  One bridal store I went to said necklaces should not be worn with wedding dresses – I’d never heard of this before, but now I totally get it.


Totally agreed. From the very beginning of my dress-lust days, I always wondered why brides went crazy with sashes, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, headpieces, etc. when the dress already spoke so much for itself.
