    You certainly don’t have to if you don’t want to, but I think a necklace looks nice with strapless dresses because so much between your face and your chest is empty.. it’s a composition thing I can’t describe 🙂  But of course, if you don’t want to, you do not have to!

    I have a strapless dress and will be wearing a necklace even though my dress has a ton of detail on it.

    I think yes to a necklace, but you could do something classic and simple, so you don’t have too much going on.

    I didn’t wear a necklace, simply because I had an outdoor ceremony in August, and I hate the feeling of being hot with a sticky necklace on.

    @nawella:  I usually say no to necklaces and I’m a bigger fan of earrings and a bracelet but  think your dress would look lovely with a necklace!!

    If you’re wearing a really busy headpiece, I wouldn’t wear a necklace. It might be too much.

    @nawella:  I think you should try on the dress with a necklace that you already own to determine if you need one. 

    I did this. The neckline of my dress is similar to yours, so I wore a string of pearls to my first fitting, took them off and decided that I like the dress with a necklace.

     

    Then I decided that I wanted a “longer” or more dramatic (statement) necklace. So here’s the necklace I’m planning to wear:

     

    I think it fills the space nicely without looking crowded with earrings (I’m wearing studs) and a veil. 

     

    Try on some different lengths and see what works.

    @nawella:  you can keep the look simple with a small diamond pendant to match your earrings.

    I think dresses with a sweetheart neckline look GREAT without a necklace. Something about this traditional strapless neckline that kind of “forces” you to wear one, in my opinion.

    @nawella:  

    @cml:  I’m planning on a huge headpiece, and

    @weddingbound:  I’m also planning on bracelet and earrings!”

     

    ^^ Then I wouldn’t wear a necklace. Don’t want too much going on.
