Necklace or No Necklace?

When planning our wedding, I remember being torn as to what necklace to wear.  At the time, it had never crossed my mind not to wear one.  So, I bought several possibilities, put on the dress, and tried one after another after another.  As excited as I was to have an excuse to buy sparkly jewelry, I wasn’t loving any of the necklaces with the dress.  Each and every option ended up going back to the store.

A little while later, I sat with my bridesmaid and wedding planner, Hayley.  I told her about the necklaces and how none had worked.  I asked her what she thought.

“I don’t think you should wear a necklace at all,” she laughed.  “With your beautiful dress, a bare neck will look a lot more elegant.”  Wow.  It was like a light bulb turning on.  I had the option not to wear a necklace.  I fought it for quite awhile after that, but in the end, she was absolutely right. A bare neck was a lot more elegant.

Of course, my choice won’t be the best for everyone, so let’s look at the pros and cons.

Pros

  • Necklaces are pretty and can really dress up a plain gown.
  • It’s a way to bring in personality, whether that’s by bringing in some sparkle or by introducing a new, bold color.
  • It can easily be your something new or borrowed or even blue.
  • It can cover up any scars or beauty marks on your neck

Cons

  • It can detract from the gown.
  • It can shift and not lay right, which doesn’t look good in photos
  • It’s one more thing to buy or find.
  • It’s one more thing you may need to constantly adjust.

Here are some inspiration photos to help you make up your mind!
