I agree with PP. Can you remove the straps and have the shoulder necklace instead?

I love those! I also have a dress with similar straps and don’t think it will work. I think these are meant for strapless. Generally if the dress has straps, it is usually to keep it up, which looks to be the case for your dress. I went with some epic statement earrings……

I think the necklace would take away from the straps and the beautiful back.

Almost every picutre on google of Hayley Paige’s shoulder necklaces are featured with strapless gowns. I agree with pp’s, the necklace will clash with your straps.

I definitely do not think you should pair one with those straps.  To be blunt, it would look ridiculous.

 Also do remember that there is a significant difference between a model posing for a specific photo and a real bride doing all the normal stuff – fixing her shoe, hugging her father or her new husband, dancing, cutting cake – that necklace is going to fall all over the place, not look perfect, catch in your hair, unless you glue it on.  That dress is gorgeous without.

ETA: I felt like I was being too negative, but then I did a search for a video of someone, anyone wearing one.  nothing came up – no one famous, no one normal – indicates to me that it’s just not practical at all.

Definitely not with the straps. Beautiful dress though and those straps seem to have a lot of bling all on their own. Maybe try finding a “y” shaped necklace since your dress is fairly low cut.

I think with the straps it would be too much. But what if you find something to kind of compromise? You could find an elegant and sparkly back drop necklace that compliments the straps. I’ve attached a picture but don’t necessarily think this style would be best. Just for reference! And I am getting married in Vegas too so I totally get the bling!
