Inspired: Statement Necklaces

{wedding candy}

Did you ever see that old movie Steel Magnolias?  Southern accents galore, as well as this little chestnut: "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize."  Philosophically speaking, that's not entirely true, but it sure does make it fun to be a girl.

Looking around for bridal jewelry is a task unto itself, but it doesn't have to be stressful!   Obviously, that beautiful dress is going to take center stage on your wedding day, but if it's got a simple, unadorned neckline, a bold necklace can be the perfect way to add a little more flair and top off your look. You can even consider it an investment--go beyond bridal shops, which tend to have limited, overpriced options, and look for a special piece you know you'll wear over and over.  Costume jewelry shops and handmade craft vendors are a great place to start.  Whether you like classic pearls, delicate appliques, or modern geometric shapes, it's not hard to find a little something extra that lets your style shine.

Give these pretty options a try:


Stella & Dot



J. Crew 

Lord & Taylor

Which do you like best?  And, I'd love to know: how are you accessorizing your dress?
