    It's crazy what happens to you on your wedding day. It's no longer about what matches what.. you feel very sentimental.. at least I did. I wore my great-grandmother's necklace that she wore at her wedding, my grandma wore, and her daughter wore. I was only going to wear it during the ceremony because it didn't really match my dress but I couldn't bear taking it off and left it on the entire night. It was too long and was pretty much inside my strapless dress all night because I had borrowed it and didn't want to shorten the chain. My grandma ended up telling me the necklace was mine to pass down to our future daughter at our reception.. I was sooo surprised and felt so loved.

    Sometimes it isn't about how well something goes with your outfit, it's the meaning behind it. Your fiance loves you and spent so much to give you something special, even if he says he doesn't mind, I'm sure it will always matter if you "exchange it" for something else.

    It's gorgeous and I think you should wear it.

        Both the dress and the necklace are beautiful. Don't exchange it - he picked it out for you because he wanted you to have it.

        Personally, I'd wear it all the time. And if you think it's not a "perfect" match for your dress, try it with a slightly longer or shorter or thicker or narrower chain - I think you'll find that it works wonderfully.

        And congratulations!

        Happily married since 2008

          Thanks so much for the advice. I don't know what I would do without this forum. I am totally keeping the necklace and am wearing it everyday. It is pretty gorgeous!

              It is gorgeous. I have one similar and I wear it often. I'm glad you've decided to keep it and wear it on your wedding day. :)
