Just wondering if anyone DIDN'T wear a necklace and just earrings for their DW? I'm sorta short between my neck and wear the top of my dress starts (dresses with straps look ridiculous on me!) and I've been debating wether or not to even wear a necklace. Chokers are out of the question because they feel too restricting on me.

 

Anyone have any ideas/input on this? If you have pics, that would be great help too!

 

Thanks gals! :)

I also have what I like to call "short neck syndrome". I think it has to do with my big boobs, that by the time I get a dress that covers up my cleavage to a respectable level I feel like there is not a lot of room between my neck and dress, etc.

 

So I do not plan on wearing a necklace at all, I think a choker would even break it up (makin neck look shorter) so I plan on just selecting some earrings to elongate my neck hopefully.

 

I have to ask this on this thread also, do you thing hair up or down will make the neck look longer?

I have a fairly long skinny neck, and I'm not wearing a necklace. I don't even think I'm wearing earrings (but I have an absolutely fabulous bracelet my cousin is custom making, with about $300 worth of gemstones). I'm wearing a strapless dress b/c I know my fiance likes my shoulders and collarbone, and I really don't feel any need to detract from the dress or my body with a necklace (if I had a different neckline I would have gotten a necklace, but I definitely don't feel it's always the best option).

 

I never wear earrings on a day to day basis, so I'm not wearing any for the wedding b/c I don't feel I'll look like me. So basically, wear what you think suits you and the dress best :)

I am a jeweler...and from the expert opinion...you don't need to wear a necklace. I am not wearing one myself. Instead I am wearing a dress clip on my neckline (a brooch will also work). I am also wearring some earrings I made and a bracelet that is a family hierloom from FMIL.

 

Here is a pic of my jewelry and dress:

I have the same problem. There will be a band of beading right across the neckline and I fear that things won't match. I'm having a hard time actually finding a necklace that I like. I think that I'll just stick with some great earrings.

 

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one with the "short neck syndrome" lol

 

I'm not too sure about the hair thing. I guess that would be something a hairdresser would be able to tell you.

I went with dangly earrings and a bracelet. The bodice of my dress was beaded and I had a sparkly hair clip and I didn't want to look over-done. I'm petite with big boobies, so there wasn't a lot of room.

 

I did look at a few necklace options and my best advice is something really simple if you decide to go with one. The girls had pendant necklaces that matched their stud earrings and the cocktail rings we all wore.

 

Of course, I don't have any detailed pictures, but here you go...
