Gorgeous Bridal Dress Neckline & Necklace Combos

Some rules aren’t meant to be broken. And in the case of coordinating your bridal dress neckline and necklace, there’s a fine line to follow. A mismatched look will not only make you appear disproportional, but it can also distract from the shape and style of your dress. So be kind to your decollete by showing it off with the right type of sparkly frosting.

 

The Simple Sweetheart

If you’ve opted for a strapless gown with a neckline that is not quite as dramatic as a V neckline, it’s best to choose jewelry that is more on the subtle side, so that your chest and shoulders look dainty while highlighting your bare collarbone (believe me your hubby will notice). A teardrop pendant is a great option because it hangs perfectly around the neck, accentuating the neckline of the dress.

 

Delicate Haltered V’s

Brides who have decided on a sexy V neckline for their big day should ideally look for longer necklaces that match the symmetry of the dress’ neckline like the one pictured. If your dress is more on the plain side, you can get a little crazy with the bedazzling on the necklace. It’ll make you feel straight out of a Hollywood wedding, and you’ll be shining bright like a diamond.

 

Deep in Diamonds

If you’re a bride who loves the drama when it comes to getting glam for your wedding, you’ve probably selected more of an extreme neckline like the bride above. With this type of deep strapless neckline and gorgeous bodice, a more rounded jewelry piece is perfect. Clusters of diamonds bring attention to the face and neck, rather than having the focus all on the twins peeking through that deep V! Want to achieve this look? Embrace your inner diva with this breathless necklace by Gottlieb & Sons.

 

All Claps for Thin Straps

One of the most graceful and elegant looks for wedding dresses this season is the spaghetti strap neckline, which bodes well for brides who are not comfortable showing too much shoulder nudity! Because the straps themselves bring attention to the chest, it’s best to decide on a pendant silhouette for the necklace or it’ll look too busy. You also don’t want to take away from the focus on your gorgeous face…after all you did spend precious $$$ to get airbrushed like a flawless porcelain doll.

 

Pretty in Pink

When it comes to dresses with ivory tones or those with white lace, rose gold is the way to go. Adding warm metal tones to a cooler dress balances out your complexion so you don’t look like Elsa from Frozen walking down the aisle! A clustered diamond rose gold pendant like the one featured here from Gottlieb & Sons is perfect for a sequined sweetheart neckline gown like on this stunning bride. You’ll be blushing all day long, and not just because you’re getting married!

 

 

So whether you’re dripping in diamonds or keeping it classic with a simple pendant, it’s important to remember to choose something that makes you feel beautiful. Your big day is all about you (and your pics), so make sure your necklace and neckline are always in sync.

     4. Ashley’s veil

The veil is one of the most underrated bridal accessories, yet still among the most important. Ashley shows us the allure of going for a shorter design, accentuating her dress, which pours dramatically over the ground. The trim on the veil is jazzed up with some sparkle, preventing the look from being too plain.

The shorter veil design works well particularly for petite women. It gives you the illusion of height without having to clunk on sky-high heels (even though you’re probably dying to wear a pair of bridal Christian Louboutins)—now pause to fantasize…
