Okay So I have had the hardest time deciding on which necklace I like the best with my dress. I have been to many stores to go shopping for jewelry…in particular a necklace to go with my dress, however I have not found anything that I like. I dont want to get something cookie cutter, I kind of want to go out of the box and get something unique and different and definitely want a statement piece. Here are the different options that I have found on online places…… First I will post pics of my dress then the poll options…

I chose #3 but I also really like #7! Its so different and I love the color!

I like #6 and #8 the most out of the choices.
My advice is probably not helpful as I go for more timeless, ‘traditional’ looks, but what about pearls? It looks like there are clear or white sequins but no rhinestones on your dress, so all of the blingy rhinestones/crystals doesn’t seem like it ‘fits’ to me.
All of that tulle and/or organza plus the appliques just seem calling for something softer than “hard”, “angular” rhinestones.
Maybe something like one of these:
What kind of veil are you going to go with?

@Anise: Thank you for your thoughts! My mom bought the short veil that is in the first two pictures. I really wanted a tight fitting dress with a pouffy bottom, like mine. I really am in love with the dresses that have a blingy belt than can be put around the waist, however I fell in love with this dress. I thought about adding a belt like I wanted but wasnt sure if it would look right. So insead of ordering a belt I wanted some bling in a statement necklace. I originally wanted pearls but I cannot find anything with pearls that looks ore trendy I guess. Im not really traditional so I wanted to go with something more edgy. AHHHHHH idk what to do!!!

@angiemk47: The bubble veil is definitely modern!
I personally wouldn’t pair a belt with that dress because you would cover up the applique that’s on your waist.
The beach glass (#7) necklace wouldn’t be bad, and is softer than the other necklaces.
Here are some other pearl options (not all pearls are ‘traditional’!):
(I’m not partial to etsy or anything, these are just some of the results that come up in a google search)
Good luck with your search. I hope you find something that is just right for you and your vision!

@Anise: LOVE ETSY!!! Acutally most of these are from etsy. I literally had my credit card out and ready to buy on there then I saw that some of the shop policies say no refunds/returs/exchanges, so that is why I stalled and have yet to find something. I keep going back to these shops tho, becuase I still cannot find anything I like anywhere else. I guess Im just nervou about buying something and spending money not knowing if it will look ok without trying pieces on with my dress. What would you do?
I like the beack glass but it is alot of money!! The third etsy listing you posted is so pretty!!

Number 7! It is different and soft but also bold and has the something blue if you need that or are doing that. Its perfect In My Humble Opinion.
