    Maybe wear the heirloom for the ceremony and the J.Crew for the reception?

    @dancingfox:  The heirloom is so unique and wonderful. The j crew is so run of the mill. Have you thought of wearing the heirloom but switching into the other for some pictures?

    I’d wear the heirloom. That J Crew necklace reminds me a little of the giant ball-chain necklace I had in high school, though, so I might be a little biased.

    Wearing one for the ceremony and one for the reception is a fine idea, but please, please do not wear them together.I really don’t think it will look very good at all! (Maybe if the J Crew came in gold….)

    FI’s mom bought me a really pretty chunky modern pearl necklace right after I bought my dress. Then my grandmother offered me her mother’s pearls, which I didn’t think she would let out of her house ever. I’m wearing my great-grandmother’s pearl necklace for the ceremony and some pictures, then will either wear FMIL’s necklace for the reception or wrap it around my wrist and wear it as a bracelet. Decisions, decisions…. I’m leaning towards bracelet because I know me and i will probably forget to switch and she’ll be hurt.

    @dancingfox:  Wear the Jcrew necklace, but perhaps have the heriloom one incorperated into the handle/wrap portion of your boquet? I’ve seen people do this with brooches, lockets, and rosaries.

    I would wear the heirloom. It’s such a special way to incorporate all those women in your family into your wedding! What an amazing “something old”! And it is so beautiful and unique!

    But then again, I specifically asked my mom if I could wear the pearls my father had got her 20+ years ago for my wedding, so I am all about the sentimental 🙂

    I love the heirloom! Aside from the tradition aspect of it, it’s so pretty and delicate, it’d go beautifully with your gown!

    If you’re wearing your hair up, you could try taking the pendant off the heirloom necklace and temporarily attaching it to the back of the J. Crew necklace.
