Jewellery with strapless gown??

Amie, on 12/July/2019 at 23:26 Posted in Wedding fashion
Hi everyone!

My wedding is August 3rd and I’m wearing the dress pictured - the skirt will be worn for the ceremony only. I’m wondering what I should do for jewelry. My mom passed away in 2016 and I have her 1/2 carat diamond earrings which I wanted to wear in her memory however, I think I need something large and more dramatic. At this point, I’m not wearing a necklace. My hair will be done or hair up. I have long hair.

I am having my moms wedding dress altered into a rehearsal dress so I am doing a lot to keep her near me as much as I can. The lace from the dress will be tied around my bouquet also.

Anyways, I normally only wear my engagement ring (white gold) and diamond or pearl studs. So wearing both a necklace and statement earrings seems like a lot in my mind.

What do you all think? What would look good in that dress in your opinion? Please help.

    Personally, I'd go with mom's earrings, and a dainty necklace that lands just above your cleavage. I think that would be super pretty.

    If you want the statement peice to be the earrings then choose a very simple dainty necklace. I think having your hair up and a strapless gown will leave way too much empty space and might end up have people looking at the empty space more then the earrings. You dont need alot just something. They sell necklaces with very thin chains and a little heart charm. You will hardly notice it and it will peice everything together nicely and give a better flow from the dress to the earrings. Im sorry about your mom but its really sweet of you to want to bring in so much of her. i think she would be very happy knowing that you are honoring her that way.

    Your dress is beautiful and I love your hair! I definitely think a nice, sizeable pair of earrings would look great. Perhaps a bracelet that matches too or some sort of hair accessory!

    First off, STUNNING! My dress is also strapless and hair is down, and I'm having the same dilemma. I love the look of a larger statement earring but thinking my chest looks a little bare. I've seen other wear pearls, but I myself, am not a pearl girl. I've been thinking of a medium length necklace that has diamonds all the way around and not just one hanging in the middle.

    I don't have a belt yet but I plan on wearing a normal leather belt wrapped in the same colour as the BM's dresses with my grandfather's belt buckle. It will be my something old. Something blue is drop earrings and matching necklace.

    Thanks Amanda! I had my final alterations done and the dress is now home with me. Unfortunately it Sits a bit funny. I have a small waist for my size but my thighs are bigger so the needed to leave extra room on my waist so I can sit down.

    I had had to get a belt. Do you have a belt for your dress?

    I found some beautiful earrings yesterday but they were $450 dollars. How can I justify that for earrings that aren’t diamonds? I passed and order a pair off amazon.

    Wow! Thank you everyone for all the responses and advice. It’s great. I decided to order dangling earring to try it out with the dress AND a pendant necklace. That way I have options!

    Thank u again to everyone who took the time to comment ❤️

    You are a stunning bride!!! And I absolutely love what you are doing to honour your mother. I would wear her earrings and a dainty necklace or wear statement earrings and see if you can wear a necklace of hers or a ring on a chain etc so it balances out instead of statement earrings AND statement necklace. Good luck, you will look beautiful no matter what you choose!

    I suggest wearing your moms diamond studs and a statement necklace that hits at about your collar bone. With the strapless you have lots of options for a necklace from a simple diamond pendant to something more elaborate. You look beautiful in your dress!
