Hi fellow bees!
I need some help selecting some jewelry for my wedding day. I have a “busy” dress with lace, pearls and a tiny bit of bling on it.
I think I would like to go with pearls, but would like your advice.
Do you think the dress is too “busy” for a necklace? Should the dress be the star of the show?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I think a string of pearls would look great with it.

I think something simple like pearls would like nice. But you also have such a great figure and your chest and back look beautiful just the way they are. If it were me, I’d forgo the necklace and do some bigger earrings (or drop earrings).

Maybe a choker of pearls? That would be so lovely with your dress!

How about filigree? It would reprise the “lacey” theme without adding more white to the ensemble, at the same time it would make it look “airy”, light.

I agree with just simple pearls. Some drop earings or something in your hair might be pretty too.

I think the above bees have it nailed. Simple and I love the idea of pearls,too

I am usually anti-necklace, but I think a strand of pearls or a simple pearl pendant would look great with your beautiful dress!

Ooh, I think you might have the same dress as me! I’ve never seen anyone else in it before 🙂 Which style is it? It looks so good on you!
For mine, I am wearing a pearl necklace. I am also thinking chandelier earrings (but haven’t tried this yet so might be too much.

I got a similar dress to yours (an Oleg Cassini from 2007). I love both of them! I am pretty sure the beading on both dresses is similar. That said, I was planning on wearing a strong of pearls and simple earrings. However, all of my Bridesmaid or Best Man (9 of them) think the dress is too busy to wear simple pearls, and I just discovered my Fiance HATES pearls. Like, in a “I’ll buy you any other necklace just please don’t wear pearls” type of way. So weird. In any case, I no longer want to wear the pearls and instead will be getting big chandelier earrings. I’m excited for this new look I hadn’t thought of. So, first off, does your Fi like pearls? Secondly, I think that with the glitz and glam on the dress, you don’t need a necklace but just some nice chandalier earrings. Either way, I think you’ll look stunning! You can’t go wrong!

I usually say with a “busy” dress only do earrings and a necklace, because of the Sweetheart cut i’m going to differ. A choker or simple pearl necklace would look great. Try looking at the chokers here http://www.mariellonline.com/index.php/catalog/page/028/bridal-jewelry/ top left.
Hope this helps!
