      I love no necklace (or a very simple necklace) with a halter... I think dangly earrings will look beautiful too to offset the simplicity of a halter...

        You can wear a crystal pendant, in a nice white or yellow gold chain.

          I'm wearing a halter as well. Mine's lace, so I've opted for no necklace as I think it will detract from things. If I was to wear one, it would be very simple - an elegant chain with a delicate pendant of some variety. I think the length should be just long enough that the pendant is framed in the v of the halter, just below your collarbones.

            I hate the way a necklace feels with a halter. Have you thought about wearing one of those pendants on a clear chain (like that fishing line looking stuff) That way it doesn't take away from the halter part and looks like a floating decoration :)

            i have a halter dress and i am not wearing a necklace. instead im going to wear some simple dangly earrings. i think a necklace detracts too much from how beautiful the dress is. (and trust me, i tried on every necklace i own! i just liked how it looked with no necklace best)

              I would have to agree that with a halther no necklace is needed unless you have one that is important to you to fit in to your wedding day attire. Add a nice bracelet and simple earrings and you are good to go.

                In my opinion, you do not need a necklace with a halter style dress!

                  thanks for your opinions!
                  i feel the same about not wearing a necklace and probably won't do so at my DW but I need something for my AHR chinese banquet.
                  Unfortunately, in chinese culture, the bride's family is supposed to give their daughter jewelry to bring into her new family so I would have to wear something to display this tradition. I don't really care about this but my dad (who has been cool about the DW and not made any demands on my wedding) has told me that if I don't wear something around my neck, most people will assume that my family was too poor to provide me with jewels!

                    What type of halter top is it? Does it have small straps that look like they could be detached, or is larger straps that are part of the top that covers the boobs?

                    (does that make sense?)

                    If it's the wider straps that are part of the top, then I would do like the other ladies have suggested with a thin chain.

                    If it's the small straps, then you could maybe wear a choker necklace.

                    I've now become obsessed with large dangly sparkly earrings to go with my dress. http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t19246

                    Good luck with your search.
