What necklace to wear with halter dress?

Recommended Posts

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.

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://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t19246

 

Good luck with your search.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
