Did any brides wear a strapless dress with no necklace and an updo? I plan to wear a strapless dres, with no necklace, no earrings and have an updo with jewelled pins in my hair and an embellished veil. Most brides who dont wear a necklace seem to wear their hair down.. I’m wondering if its going to look too plain?

Is there detail on the dress that means it’s not necessary to wear a necklace. I know I wont be wearing a necklace for that reason. Hair is undecided. But an up-do is very regal so I wouldn’t worry.

Why no earrings? Even simple studs would look very classy and elegant.

Have you tried your gown on with your hair pulled up and no jewelry? I would do that before making a final decision. For me, I would have to wear a necklace with my hair up because I would feel to bare without something there.

@CatyLady: The dress is just a regular strapless mermaid.. so there are no special details around the neckline. I just dont wear much jewelry and thats why I wont have a necklace

I think with no earrings it might look a little bare. I wore my hair up with earrings and no necklace (and a strapless dress) and I thought it looked great. Are you planning on wearing your veil all night?

Have you got a photo of you in the dress or just the dress designer and style?
I think you’ll need something, even just earings…

@hilsy85: Yes I plan to change into a shorter veil.
@noritake22: I think I’ll do just that next time i’m at the bridal salon and then I can see if it looks good or not.
@PinkPinstripes: I dont really wear jewelry and havnt pierced my ears

I think your jeweled hair pins and veil will compliment the jewel detail on the dress well and I think jewelery with this dress could look too much. So I think you’ll be fine. I think you’ll have a soft look.

That dress is gorgeous! May I ask the designer and model?
I like the idea of no necklace, but I agree that earrings would look nice. Would you consider clip-ons? Rhinestone/CZ earrings would look great – something light and simple would be enough:

Personally, I think wearing a simple necklace or clip on earings would look very nice.

I’m doing a strapless dress, updo, bold earrings, embellished veil, and no necklace. Look at the red carpets these days, no one wears necklaces anymore. And the belt on your dress is more than enough. You will look stunning and tasteful

I will also have my hair up, strapless dress and BIG earrings 🙂 I think it looks better on me than a necklace no matter how I wear my hair.
The detail and sparkle on your dress are beautiful on their own. No need to compete with a statement necklace (or any necklace)!! AND hair up is always elegant.
