It is important you don’t just fall in love with your wedding jewellery. You also need to make sure it works with the style of your wedding dress and, most importantly, doesn’t crowd or work against the neckline. Here are some of our ideas for the perfect necklaces for different dress necklines:


Genevieve Bridal Pendant

Pendants work best with a V-neckline. Depending on the style of the dress, you can either go for something simple like a stunning diamond (or diamantĂ©) pendant, or something sentimental like a silver heart on chain. V-necklines can also work with more statement vintage pendants if that’s more your style.

Sweetheart Neckline

A sweetheart neckline lends itself to most necklaces styles. I particularly like drop necklaces or pendants, which work well with the dip in the neckline. Try to keep some distance between the necklace and top of your dress so the neckline doesn’t look too crowded.

Halter Neck

With the resurgence of all things vintage, halter neck wedding dresses have come back in fashion. You could opt to not wear a necklace with this style and instead go for some lovely vintage-style chandelier or drop earrings.

However, simple pendants can also work well with a halter neck and are a nice touch, especially if there is a sentimental memory associated with the piece or you have had it made especially for you.


Elle Diamante Necklace

Most necklaces will suit the off-the-shoulder style, but chokers or decorative necklaces tend to work best as they mirror the curve of the top of the dress. It is important though to find the right balance with your other accessories and headpiece or tiara.
