    @laura.batty:  I think ombré would be better than the black petticoat. If you went with a black petticoat, it would show through the white and look like a mistake. I’m just not sure it can be done to look intentional.

    Do you have any inspiration pictures? Can black dye be ombréd, or do you have to do a black to grey to white?

    What if you wore your white dress for the ceremony and dinner, and then changed into a black dress for your reception?

    @laura.batty:  

                            I agree with PP. I would hold something black under the skirt to see how it would show under the white dress (just because it could make the dress look grey and not give you the black you want) What about adding a layer of black tulle over top of the skirt. Its hard to see the details but that might take away from the dress too not sure. Are you wearing black shoes/heels? I honestly think all the details you have already with accents of black should really help you pull off the theme well! Maybe a black shawl will give you the splash of black you are looking for.

    @laura.batty:  LOOOOOVE that black sequined dress. What a FAB reception dress. Also love your ideas and theme. Personally, I think you should go safe/neutral with the dress and keep it as is, and work the accessories (like you already are with the headpiece). Even though you have a bold theme that isn’t exactly “timeless” per se, you will still probably like looking back and seeing some classic, gorgeous choices (Like your gorge dress)

    i love ombré, but I think it’s over. I had the hair, and I have still a million ombré wedding pins, but I think it is possibly going to end up the puffy sleeves of our time. Those inspiration pics are dreamy though, if you still gotta gotta have it!

    I love your dress so much just as it is. I wouldn’t try doing anything to it. I’d just have all the accessories to go with your theme. Are you having a veil? That could be black, or shades of grey and black. Or have black gloves.

    I can only see the pic of one of the veils. Maybe you could wear the veil for the ceremony, and then have the headpiece for the reception.

    I really love your dress… did I say that already?

    I like both the overlay inspiration pics and the ombre. It seems like the overlay would be easier to do. The second picture looks like it would be the easiest for a seamstress to add to your dress and still make it look cohesive. I like the overlay of the third picture, but it might look look strange if the top half of the dress is white and then abruptly black. What would it look like if you wore a black belt (not the karate kind :)? It might tie the black together well.
