That dress is pretty and it looks like you have lots of options for accessories. Maybe a nice belt around the waist to add some bling.

@kristen3333:  I went alone too, knowing my FMIL would have plenty of opinions like, ‘You’re not going to wear white are you?’.  I’m glad I did….

You look stunning in it and I think it’s a beautiful canvas for you to accessorize to your liking

@kristen3333:  I’m an Alvina bride, too! 🙂 (9051) And I also went dress shopping alone (mom passed away).

My dress has a sweetheart neckline and I’m accessorizing with a simple pearl necklace.

Oooh, very pretty!  It looks a lot like my dress except satin/silk instead of lace on the top.  You definitely have an open canvas to accessorize.  I love the idea of a blingy sash.  How about some big, sparkly, statement earrings too?  Are you wearing a veil?  A cathedral veil would look stunning.  I’m so excited for you!  I want to see more pics!

It’s beautiful!  I agree with adding a belt, and maybe some statement earrings, and not much else (other than maybe a veil)

I already know it’s going to be perfect!  Alvina Valenta has beautiful dresses…and yours clearly is gorgeous!  Moly bridesmaids dresses are the same brand. There’s just something about the way that their dresses are made that I love.  The sweetheart top & the cups are just perfect.  And your body looks fabulous in that dress. I do like that belt too. My opinion as far as accessories go would be to do either a belt with big earrings or no belt with a big necklace.  I personally don’t care for the look of everything together. . .but that’s just my personal opinion.

I had my eye on this very dress before I ended up with my Jim Hjelm dress. Seeing your pictures is making me kick myself for not trying it on. You look great. I love how clean and streamlined it is and then romantic and playful at the bottom!
