PIP - Bare neck or jewelry?

Hi
The neckline of my dress has a lot of embellishment so I'm not sure if I need to wear a necklace or not.  What do you think?  It's strapless and my hair will most likely be up and I will have a veil.
If you think I should, what are your suggestion? 
Thank you!

    If your hair is going to be up, I would definitely recommend a neckalce and agree with PP that it should be closer to your neck and not something that falls down close to the top of the dress.

    Wear a close to the neck necklace or a choker, and probably one that's more delicate - not a statement piece.

    Awesome - thank you ladies :)
    We bought a simple stone necklace for our bridesmaids so maybe I can try to find a similar one but on a shorter chain.

    [QUOTE]I was also thinking delicate. Either something with one stone or small stones all around.

    I did not wear a necklace with my dress and I had way less detail.  Personally I would not wear a necklace.

    I would definitely wear something, especially if you are going to be wearing your hair up - just a chain with a small, simple pendant would do.  I didn't wear a necklace in my e-pics with a strapless top, and after I got the photos back I felt I looked unfinished.  FWIW, my dress is also strapless sweetheart with beading, and I'm going to wear a necklace.

    I like that idea of a simple neckace. I like necklaces with all strapless dresses

    I forgot to ask about earrings!  Studs or long?

    If you're going with the necklace, definitely studs. A necklace and long earrings is too much IMO. Either long chandelier earrings and no necklace, or necklace with studs (or a tiny drop earring).
