It was only a matter of time before the 90s resurgence wave hit the bridal fashion world! Bridal choker necklaces are among the many new accessory trends we saw at Bridal Fashion Week, gracing the necks of models at Kavier Gauche, Kim Kassas, and more.
Chokers have been known to be an edgier accessory—stemming from the grunge aesthetic that overtook the 90s—but you’ll find that there are actually many dainty and simple styles that are perfect for any bridal look. So whether you are looking for a statement piece or just a simple touch of sparkle, there is a choker that will fit your style.
We’ve rounded up 13 of our favorite versions of this ‘It-Girl’ accessory for you to peruse, ranging in price and design.

Are bridal chokers expensive?
Bridal choker necklaces can range in price, so you’ll be able to find a look you love no matter what your budget is. Diamond chokers tend to be the most expensive, with prices ranging upward of $50,000, but CZ options are a much more reasonably priced option that gives a similar effect.
What wedding dress neckline looks best with chokers?
Chokers generally look best with simple dress necklines since they are such a statement piece. Specifically, they're great to pair with square necklines because the square design helps to accentuate the neck area.
What clasp works best with chokers?
Lobster claws and spring rings are generally the most secure clasps for every type of necklace. If your choker doesn’t have either of these clasps, you can easily replace it by bringing it to your jeweler.
