I think it just depends on the dress and the look you are going for. Personally, I am not wearing one because I don’t want to take away from my gown but I am wearing a little bigger, more dramatic earrings and some kind of headpiece/combs in my hair and maybe a bracelet. My dress is also strapless with a  sweetheart neckline and my hair will be in a low updo.

You can never go wrong with pearls or a simple necklace if you want one. I do like it, although I would never do it personally, when a bride has a simpler gown and wears some kind of statement piece to jazz it up.

Pictures of your dress? Just be careful, you dont want to be too busy but if you want to wear one, I’m sure you can find something beautiful to compliment your gown.

I personally won’t be wearing a necklace with my strapless dress.

I don’t know why, but I didn’t like the look of necklaces on me with strapless dresses. It seemed like overkill. I’ve seen others pull it off just fine, but I didn’t like it on me. I will be wearing dangly earrings and a bracelet but no necklance.

I think you could do either for your dress, but I’d make it a dainty necklace/pendant.

I won’t because my dress has a lot of beading at the top and I may choose to wear the cap sleeves. I will wear larger/blinger earrings, head piece, and a bracelet.

I think you could wear one if you wanted to, but I think it would look nice without one.  You have enough detailing near the neckline to not need a necklace.  I’m wearing a strapless Maggie, and I’m just wearing some nice sparkly earrings and possibly a bracelet.

I am wearing one with mine (sweetheart neckline), but only because I have an incredibly long torso and, without a necklace, the dress looks like it’s starting at my waist.

With yours, I wouldn’t. I like the look of longer earrings and a strapless dress and I think you would rock it.  It ensures your dress can be the star of the show.

I am…but strapless dresses with no necklace remind me of wearing a towel after you’ve just stepped out of the shower. That may very well be just something that’s happening in my mind. 🙂

I went back and forth on a necklace, but ended up deciding against it.  I prefered a cleaner look without one.

I’m leaning away from wearing a necklace. I’m going to be wearing a fascinator in my hair and earrings, and I felt like a necklace might be too much.

I am not wearing a necklace with my strapless sweetheart neckline. If you wear larger earrings, you woudn’t need a necklace. I don’t think that you should wear a necklace and earrings though.

I am not wearing a necklace because my sweetheart neckline has embellishments. With yours, if you do wear anything, I would also suggest something dainty and unobtrusive. Pretty dress, btw!
