Who can resist a bride in a statement necklace?

Whether it's strings of chunky pearls, vintage sparkle, metallic, tribal, fabric or geometric, a statement necklace can take a strapless dress from pretty to pretty AWESOME with one clasp!

They work beautifully with short haired brides and brides who wear their hair up to show the necklace off to full effect. However, I've come to the sad realization that statement necklaces {and chokers} just don't suit me due to my rather short neck. Something to consider when trying chunky, statement necklaces on…

Also bear in mind the classic beauty/jewelry rule ~ if you're focusing on one area, be sure to keep the other areas simple so as not to look OTT. Which means no big, dangly earrings!
