    Hey ladies...

    My mom and I are having a little...differing of opinions when it comes to what style of jewelry to wear with the sweetheart neckline that my wedding dress has.

    I will attach a PDF file that has a picture of the top of my dress, along with three necklace examples. I have a favorite...but...I think I might keep looking too. I will post again tonight with an update having the photos in photobucket...so if you don't want to waste your points, just wait until tonight!


    Which would you prefer the look of...

    Sweetheart with a rounded, non-drop pendant, style necklace...

    or

    Sweetheart with some form of drop pendant necklace.

      Personally, I think the drop would look better and accentuate the neckline of the dress. I'd love to see the pics of the ones you're deciding between!

        I really want to post pictures of the ones I'm thinking about...but...I'm at work and hence do not have access to my photobucket account...
        I'd have to post PDFs or something...and that uses points

        Lately...I feel like I need to run EVERYTHING by my girls on BDW...before making a decision! Good grief.

            I like the drop necklace, but that would be my choice probably 100% of the time, so that's my personal taste. Pics would be great, who cares if it's a pdf?!

              I am in the process of getting photo examples...but for now...

              Hello

              My dress also has a sweetheart neckline and I have decided not to wear a necklace. I think it will take away from the detail on dress, my hair and veil. Also I find in pics that it always is mixed up or the clasp is in the wrong spot -which can potentiall ruin a good photo.

              I am going with simple elegance!

              Laura

                  Hmmmm. Normally I would say the drop one, but it's got alot going on. Pretty and all, but I think it's too much with your dress. And I don't think it should hang below the beginning of your dress, or get caught in cleavage. If you like the idea of a drop necklace, I think going a simpler route would be better. A simple elegant chain, with one teardrop crystal, or something like that.

                  Personally, I am not a fan of the rounded necklaces, cuz I think they tend to look flat or something. The pendants give definition to the neck and chest area.

                  I chose not to wear a necklace for my wedding, cuz I didn't think I needed it in my low v-neck dress. Looking back at pictures, I really wished I had a necklace on. Not sure really why, but then I did wear one for the AHR and I think it looked so much better.


                  Ohhhh! I just thought of something that could be perfect! Well, the style anyway, not so much the color. but I just saved this etsy item to my favorites, cuz I really liked it for a dress that I am wearing to a wedding next month. Something with this simple style would be nice with your neckline.

                  Actually looking at it again, it's kinda big as well. But I like the general style of this better for your dress....

                    I agree!! Well...with the idea!! I like the drop...but something a little simpler. Than the one posted above! I'm going for a casual palm tree pendant (my whole theme!!). Check out this forum... http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t29355
                    Good Luck!!
