    I, too, find those octopus necklaces to be off-putting. 

    The silver, blingy set that you are considering wearing is beautiful, because you have to actually look to find the octopus shapes in the jewelry.  I’m not saying that I think you should wear it for your wedding.  However, I do think it’s very pretty. However, I am not at all a fan of those other options, where the octopus shape is blatantly obvious.

    I also would not get your bridesmaids the same set — even in another tone of metal — that you are interested in wearing yourself. That is a statement piece, and it doesn’t really make a statement in a good way if said statement is made over, and over, and over by having all of your bridesmaids wearing it.

    That dress is beautiful; I don’t think it needs a big necklace.

    If you do decide to go a different direction the coral and shell look that Blanche  suggested looks pretty neat and of course and star fish and or sea horse ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    However I really like Gold one like yours or perhaps the white one is my second choice and i voted the white one cause the gold one like your is to much like yours and you should stand out a little more on your ewdding day ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love off beat things and love the idea of an octopus necklace for anything else other than a wedding.  I really think the other posters suggestions are fantastic and I love all of them as well, I’m completely wishing I could have a nautical theme wedding so I can use things like coral and shells lol.  If you like the uniqueness of an octopus I get that, but how about finding another sea creature just as unique but more elegant for a wedding.  My fear is that the octopus necklaces (again I think they are awesome) would take away from the actual wedding or Bridesmaid or Best Man attire and people will focus on those and not what they’re really there for.

    @Blanche:  LOVE the coral and shell options you posted and the variety of spellings for octupussies (sp?!).  HAHAHA
