About a week ago I posted pictures of my dress and got some great feedback from you guys! Now I need your help again!
I have been looking around for jewelry, hair styles, and shoes. For the hair…I think I have decided on an updo with a headband and a simple veil. As for the shoes and jewelry I have no idea. Anyone have any suggestions?
P.S. Our wedding is in March and its outside. Kind of a rustic feel. The place is a mix of country, spanish, and vineyard haha! Here is a link…

::sigh:: I seriously LOVE your dress (I’m pretty sure I told you this in your first post as well). Have you checked etsy for headbands, I’m sure you could find something AMAZING on there.

I would keep things very simple. No necklace, since the neckline is the centerpiece of the dress, and probably very simple classic jewelery, such as a pearl bracelet. If you really must have anything blingy, I’d do it with the earrings, but then again I think a classic drop pearl with maybe just a bit of sparkle would do the trick.
I like the updo and headband idea.
For shoes, I think anything goes, though I envision a raw silk pointy toed pastel slingback, which would be pretty much the most uncomfortable and expensive shoe you could find! But really, you could wear anything you wanted shoe wise and it would be fine.

if you’re doing an updo with a headband, i’d suggest keeping the earrings fairly simple else there might be too much going on. i agree w/ mrs dg re no necklace. bracelets are a great idea.
if you want some bling after the ceremony (when you’re no longer carrying flowers around), how about a flower brooch on your dress? that could be fun too.

Oh my gosh! I just realized there is an accessories board. Ooppss!

Keep it simple for sure! No necklace, for earrings I’d probably just do studs of some kind. Depends on your personal style too of course 🙂 Bracelets would be really cute! A headband will be realy cute with that dress, too. Such a great dress!

I like simple drop earrings on you, and maybe a three-strand pearl bracelet. As for shoes, I suggest a peep toe over a pointy toe pump. I love pointies (and wear them daily!) but I think they’re too severe for wedding day. Also, the sharp point may get caught in your underskirt. Your dress has a vintage feel; have you thought of doing a low up-do with a flower/vintage comb instead of a headband?

I have thought about doing a flower comb. I actually tried one on at Davids Bridal. To do the low up-do I would have to grow out my hair. It won’t even stay in a low pony tail right now haha. I am planning on growing it out anyway so thats an option!

With the simplicity of the dress, I would only do earrings and a bracelet…definitely not a necklace (because of the neckline of the dress).

I agree with miss buttons. I would go for earrings and I bracelet. I also think a very soft low up do would be perfect with that dress. Its beautiful by the way.
I would check etsy, as previously suggested, or http://www.bravobride.com. I got my accessories from there and I love them
