There's nothing as basic as a great strand of pearls.  The staple accessory of traditional bridal wear, pearls can stay basic and pretty or you can really pile the strands on to vogue-up a look like the great Coco Chanel did.   As you can see below designers are getting creative with utilizing, designing, showing off pearls in all their glory.   If you're considering going with pearls on your wedding day, the important thing to remember is-- whether it's a strand, a pair of earrings or bracelet--experiment.  Getting the right look is all about personal choice and working out the proportions you like.

I´m not very fon of pearls, I don´t know why... Maybe because I find them too classic, or posh... But I do like how they look like in pictures 2 and 4! I might give them an opportunity!

Years ago, I had heard that pearls were "bad luck" for a bride to wear since they symbolize tears. Oh well, I don't care...they look lovely and classic!

Beautiful Amy-Jo! Pearls are timeless, undeniably chic and so versatile, whether going for a more traditional and classic feel or to add some unexpected zing to a modern look.
