Bib necklaces aren't just to wear with your favorite sundress or to snazz up an open collar shirt for the office. They also make great accessories for your wedding dress and for your bridal party. And because they are such a versatile necklace, you will be able to wear these statement pieces again and again. Doubtful? Just check out how boho chic the bride is above wearing this multi-stoned necklace. As with any wedding day accessory, you should take into account the cut, neckline, and color of your gown. Here are a few bib necklace looks we love.
Vintage Madonna meets Chanel
Load yourself up in gads of pearls and colored stones for a very feminine, girly glam statement. These would pair very well with a simple, strapless princess gown.
Maximum sparkle, minimum color
When a whole lot of color doesn't go with a dress, pair it with a clear crystal bib necklace. It still has all the impact, but is perfect for brides who either want a minimalist aesthetic or for those who have a lot of color going on elsewhere. Bridesmaids wearing bright red dresses? The gold and crystal would go splendidly.
Some of the most popular bridal bib necklace trends are in candy-colored pinks and blues (it's like all the fun of saltwater taffy in your jewelry box). The coral and pink (top, left) would be so perfect for a southwest wedding in desert blushes, and the large pink stones (below, left) would be to die for with a figure-flashing mermaid or trumpet dress.
Under the Sea
Beach wedding? Stick to pretty blues and greens for your fresh air affair. The sea green (above, right) is simple enough that it could really be paired with any neckline (provided it is low enough). And the modern redux of art-deco sensibility (above, left) would be best paired with a simple silhouette, such as a flowy floor-length.
Bold and seasonal color
If you want to play up color in a big way, go with one of these two beauties! The scale of this emerald green bib (above, left) guarantees its showstopping quality and the multi-colored leaves (above, right) would shine in an autumn wedding!
Blush and nudes
If you are a vintage sort of bride, these muted tones are for you! These necklaces are bold, but refined. Any of these would be especially ah-mazing with a blush or grey dress. Can you just imagine?! Just remember to pair the longer necklaces with lower necklines.
Darker shades for a bit of mystery
Some girls just love a good dark jewel tone with plenty of sterling grey. These sophisticated versions of a bib could go well with any dress, but would be especially fetching with darker greys, deep creams, and blacks (on either brides or bridesmaids). Planning on rocking a low-cut reception dress? This sparkly seed bead necklace (above, left) is calling your name.
