I’m a big fan of statement jewellery, and when I saw this photo posted on Style Me Pretty last week, I was surprised that I hadn’t considered a statement necklace to complement a bridal gown. This trend is picking up speed, and I am excited to see the interest level from brides growing. If you’re a fan of this trend, there’s a few things to think about.
- Statement necklaces work best on dresses with open necklines – strapless, sweethearts, or off-the-shoulders.
- If your dress has a lot going on already, it might be better to stick to the elegant, subtle accessories.
- For a shorter neck, you may want to consider complementing with longer necklaces which make you appear to have a elongated neck.
The other consideration for using statement necklaces, might be to stylishly update your look for the reception. This stunning bride below changed up the look entirely from ceremony to reception, by adding the black belt to her Vera Wang, and highlighting the look with a big, bold statement necklace.
