Necklace or not?

Ok, I have zero ability to accessorize in everyday life so I'm pretty much clueless about what to do for my wedding. 

I am wearing this dress

which has a great deal of beading on the top of the bodice.  I am also wearing a (plain)jacket in matching satin material instead of cap sleeves.  I have a cathedral length veil that has an attached sparkly headpiece.  I am planning to wear some type of sparkly drop/hanging/no-idea-what-they-are-actually-called-earrings.  Could I/should I forgo a necklace altogether?  If not, any suggestions?

Thanks.  If you need a better view of the dress, it can be seen here

Re: Necklace or not?

  • Agree with Milk Duds, no need to busy up the neckline. It is a beautiful dress.... let it shine ;-)
  • Yes, agreed. I would say none!

    Thank you! One less thing I need to worry about now.

    I agree.
  • I like what the model is doing in the picture - the dangly earrings and the bracelet are enough.  The dress has a lot going on, you don't want your jewelery to compete!

  • I wouldn't wear a necklace, but if you really want to it should be a really simple one. You wouldn't want to take away attention from the dress.
