Necklace Opinions

Hi All, I found a necklace that I like for the wedding. I think it has a vintage kind of appeal, and would go well with the overall look I'm going for. I will be wearing hair combs (my veil attaches to them, then the veil comes off for the reception and the combs stay). And a necklace, I think any more then studs for earrings would be too much.Anyway, my mom is concerned that the necklace I've found will distract from the dress, or be overpowering. There are pics of both in the "attire" section of my bio.Thoughts?

    I agree with your mom. While I love the necklace, your dress has a lot of detail. I would keep the jewelry very simple but that's just me! Obviously you will still look great no matter which way you go, small details :P

    I'm having the same debate myself, because I love big necklaces, but I share your mom's concern that a big necklace will draw all the attention away from the dress.  And given how much money wedding dresses cost, I really don't want that.  That being said, your dress has a simple silhouette, and a low neckline, so I think you could pull of this necklace.  And it's your day, so do what makes you happy!

    The necklace is really pretty! I sort of agree it might take away from the dress a little, especially since the straps on the dress are so pretty. But if you love it, I say go for it!

    Do you have a closer picture of the top of your dress?  I think it might work.

    I love that necklace and I think it will look great with your dress! I loved I Do Too Bridal in Plymouth. That's where I found my dress!

    Here's the closest picture I have on me right now:[img] http://tinyurl.com/ybubc96 [/img](that's a bad pic of me and my MOH) Another decision is whether to go with the straps or not! ugh, too many choices...

    Thank you for the closer picture!  I think it would work and JMO I would go without straps.  Very pretty dress and love the detail!

    I'd like to revise my opinion to say if you keep the straps then I don't think the necklace would go but if there's no straps then yes on the necklace. Personally, I prefer the dress without straps.

    The necklace is gorgeous, and I love the dress. I think that the necklace would compliment the dress very nicely
