Quick WR poll

My mom and I have been on an intense email back-and-forth sesh all day talking about bridal jewelry.  While there's no rush to pick particular pieces, I kind of feel the need to narrow down exactly what pieces to search for.

For reference again, here's the DRESS with the little bit of lace and then that small bling on the belt.  No veil.  Hair up, probably side or low bun-ish updo.

Option one (kind of what I'm leaning towards but not sure): Drop sparkly earrings (maybe THESE or THESE), no necklace, some small bling in the hair, then a nice bracelet of some sort.  Kind of like THIS girl did. 

Option two: Some sort of dainty shorter necklace - 16-17" (maybe like THIS with or without the back drop), sparkly stud earrings, again some sort of small bling in the hair and a nice bracelet of some sort.

Option three: Statement necklace!!  And in that case, I have no idea what other pieces I would do.  It would be a necklace like THIS or THESE

Thoughts?

    Thanks to the lovely ladies on here, I decided to go with a headpiece, earrings, and a bracelet with my strapless dress. I looked at a bunch of pictures and love how the neckline looks bare.

    I vote 1 or 2. I LOVE the drop earrings from option 1. I also think you could go with the necklace in option 2 with THESE earrings.

    Personally I think a statement necklace would overwhelm your dress. But I'm not a statement necklace kind of girl.

    i'm a fan of a tasteful statement necklace, I don't like bracelets so it wasn't something I do.  But hey you know what my necklace looks like and i'm going to wear simple pearl stud earrings and a flower in my hair.  What do you feel would suit you best?  I also feel it being a strapless that you could rock a necklace.

    It's a headband, and the ribbon will tie under my head and drape down a little.

    Gosh I love all the options so much.  I voted with number one because I feel like that is your personality and your dress personality best.  Followed by the chucky necklace :)

    I vote for statement necklace!

    Most people/dresses can handle options one and two. It's more rare that a person/dress can pull off a beautiful statement necklace. So I say, GO FOR IT!!

    I adore this necklace:



    I think it would look beautiful with a simple pair of pearl studs.  So, I vote statement necklace!

    I voted for option 1 but that's mostly because I don't like necklaces, especially statement necklaces.

    I generally love the look of strapless dresses with no necklace, but several of the brides in your statment necklace link looked awesome.

    So here's my advice:  find one piece that you love and feel like you have to wear, then coordinate the rest of your accessories with it.  Whether it's a statement necklace or a fabulous bracelet or a headpiece...  Just take inspiration from one source and then go simple with everything else.

    LOVE!

    I feel like the texture of the necklace is fab with the lace of Meg's dress.

    I really, really love the first pair of earrings you posted. I also love the 'classic round necklace' that you posted. If it wasn't over $200 I would be jumping on that for wearing with my gowns for concerts, it's gorgeous!

    Dear Meg,
    Can you shop for my accesories? I picked I love sparkles--because I love all of your choices. That is probably no help to you, but I'm really not sure what look I like best...hm. I think you seem most like an option 1 gal, and that would look lovely with your dress. Does that help?

    Can't wait to see your wedding featured in SMP.
    Cause it should be.

    best,
    jenjennifer

    p.s. How'd you get so fly?

    I also voted statement necklace. But I love me some statement jewelry in general. The bigger the better, which is pretty much my philosophy in life!

    ETA: I'm of the mindset that you should be you, just glammed up on your wedding day. So if the statement necklace isn't your thing, I wouldn't go there. If you are more an earrings girl, I would find some amazing earrings and do that. At least that way you'd probably wear them over and over on special occasions, instead of having a big piece of jewelry you won't ever wear again. Having said that, I did find this pic a while ago and liked it. Just another illustration of the statement necklace!
