I think you can cover up the birthmarks with tattoo cover up. I think if the stuff covers black ink, it should cover that without being very noticeable. Overwise I would suggest a lace choker added to the front of the dress, but then you wouldn’t see your pretty necklace.

hair down 100% hair down is in right now. I even think the necklace would still even be ok.  if you want to take attention away from the moles use a dinair air brush it is awesome on all flaws on the skin. You can find one on ebay or your makeup artist might have one or might want to to buy it from you after the wedding if you do buy one.

I love your hair down and curled! You look beautiful! I would suggest some type of make up to cover your moles if they really make you self concious.

I think you look stunning either way, but I love your hair down! I wish my hair was just a bit longer so it would look like that. I also have a noticeable mole on my chest that I’ve always been self conscious about but I’m trying hard to just accept that it’s there and try to ignore it. At least for me, covering it with makeup would make it look way worse so I’m just going to wear whatever accessories I feel like lol 🙂

I like your hair down and curled, I like your birthmarks 🙂  They look like freckles & are part of you!!  I wouldn’t be self conscious about them at all, I like it when my freckles show more in the summer.  You’ll be gorgeous on your wedding day!!

I think you look great both ways, and that the other style of necklace (the kind you prefer) actually draws my eyes to the area more. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with your birthmarks, but as someone else said, I’m sure the tattoo makeup would cover them up just fine if they’re going to bother you.

i’m not much of a necklace person when it come to wedding dresses.  and you look gorgeous with your hair down!

in general i think jewelry is meant to draw attention to certain areas (necklaces to draw attention to collarbones and…you know). if you’re self concious about that area i would skip it.

obviously jewelry’s primary purpose is to make women swoon, though, so if you are set on wearing a necklace, go for it.

Try a tattoo cover up otherwise usually your photographer can cover it up when he prints the photos.  Honestly I don’t think they look bad at all. 

I have scars all across my chest from when I was 16 and had numerous surgeries in about a 7 month span.  I think they give me character and I don’t even think about them until someone else brings them up.  When I was trying on wedding dresses and veils I was only thinking about wedding dresses.

I can understand where you’re coming from though, at first when I had the scars I was very insecure about them, now I embrace them because they are apart of me.

Having a necklace looks fine, but just so you know not having a necklace looks ok too and sometimes cover-up can make them less noticable as well.  GL
