    My FI bought me this gorgeous necklace for Valentines Day because he wanted me to have something nice to wear with my wedding dress (isn't that adorable!!). I really like the necklace but have some concerns. 1. I'm not a 'big' necklace person and it is quite big. 2. Will it go good with my dress? (I've read that you should only wear earrings with a strapless gown.) Stinks because I don't get my dress for a few more months and can't try it on with it. 3. Should I exchange it for something cheaper and then spend the extra $$ on other wedding stuff? I know that sounds tacky, but he really wouldn't care and I priced it out online (i'm so bad) and it was around $1500... WAY expensive for a necklace.
    please let me know what you all think. Here is a pic of the necklace and a pic of the dress. Please help.

      Your necklace is so pretty!!!

      It is hard to tell if it will go with your dress, w/o seeing a pic with all of it together.

      If it was me, I would keep the necklace and wear it all the time. It is just so pretty!

        I think it's a beautiful necklace, and I think it would look lovely with your dress. It's simple, so I don't think it would be "too much". Besides, your FI got it for you with the intention of you wearing it at your wedding and I just think that's about the sweetest thing in the world! I vote wear it.

            The necklace is really simple elegance. I think it would look good with your dress because it's not overstated. PLUS your honey bought it for you to wear on your wedding day. How sweet is that! I bet it would mean a lot to him to see it on you on the most special day of your relationship.

                  I definitely agree. It is absolutely gorgeous and so thoughtful of him to think of that. Just think of the smile he has when he walks down the aisle and sees you wearing that. He did a great job picking it out.

                  P.S. You dress is beautiful too!

                    i say it goes....it's simple and understated so it won't distract from your dress, it's a nice complimentary piece.
