Final Fitting....Pearl Necklace or not?
Posted: Apr 17, 2009 6:22 PM

Going to show you pictures from my final fitting . Please tell me if the Pearl necklace looks okay or if i should have no necklace and some nice earings. Also including picture of the hairstyle with the earings I plan on wearing IF I don't wear a necklace. Thanks!

I've got to be honest that I prefer not - the top of your dress has a lot of shimmer to it and the necklace almost seems to distract from that.

I personally prefer the earrings. I think they go better with the overall look of your dress.

Not. The pearls don't go with the ornamentation on your dress. The updo and earrings look elegant.

The pearls don't look quite right with it. The top of the dress has too much detail to need a necklace. The earrings are lovely though. So I guess I vote no on the pearls.

I agree with others...no pearl necklace for me. Your dress is beautiful and has lots of details and is better to keep it simple on the neck area, maybe a more simple necklace or no necklace with earrings. :)

With the other PPs, no pearl necklace

First reason-the white of the pearls clashes with the details in the dress
Second reason- the shape of the neckline doesn't work with the round, shallow shape of a pearl necklace

Add another to the "no pearls" column. The updo will look amazing with that dress. You've got enough embelishment on the bodice that you do not need the pearls, especially since this is not a strapless.

I agree with the others. No necklace but the gorgeous earrings and the updo.

Thanks yall. I pretty much knew the answer but I needed to hear it from someone else.

I just feel a little guilty because I bought the pearls in Iraq to wear on my wedding day but i had forgotten whe my dress looked like LOL I will find another special time to wear them.

Thanks for all of your opinions :)

My FH says with the necklace, just to throw another piece at it.

You could ask your mom to wear them on your wedding day (and if they were not like uber duber pricey, maybe give them to her as a thank you for being a super mom gift)

OH Lord that would Start WWIII as my parents are divorced and both remarried and my stepmom seams to think she is better than my mom. Great Idea though.

These pearls were bought In Iraq with the intentions of wearing them on my wedding day and heirlooming them down through the family. I think I will just wear them another time.

What about wearing the pearls at the rehersal & dinner? Or bring them with you on your honeymoon.

That dress is gorgeous and it looks stunning on you!!! I do agree though that I think it would look best without the pearls, If it were a strapless dress then I'd say go with the necklace, but the dress has plenty of beautiful detail that a nice pair of earrings is all that is needed.
