    I wore a very very thin beaded belt, a fingertip length lace trimmed veil, no necklace or bracelets, but double teardrop crystal earrings

    No veil for me! I have a lace illusion neckline on my dress and it just felt too covered up and like too much was going on with the addition of the veil.

    I wore a finger-tip veil with lace detailing.

     

    ETA: I wore a bracelet, necklace (something simple – that had a pearl drop), and matching earrings. I also wore a hair comb with lace and crystal details.

    I decided to wear a belt with my dress, even though it’s very detailed already. I just liked the way it defined my waist. 

    I’ll be wearing a simple, single layer cathedral length veil with the dress. No bracelet, but I will be wearing a crystal hair comb and simple crystal and pearl earrings.

    I have a belt, beaded chapel veil, and a rather large necklace and bracelet, but my lace dress isn’t very detailed.

    This is my dress, ignore my weird face. LolThis is the necklace, bracelet has the same detail.  Veil, but I had the length cut down.

    Mine was mermaid & I choose an elbow length veil to emphasize my waist. I think it shows of your amazing curves that the mermaid style is iconic for showing off 🙂

    My dress is in ivory. I plan on getting a veil similar to the veil, I love the ones with lace trim, but thought it would be too much with the lace dress. The earrings are the only accessories I’ll be wearing. Simple and I love it!

    Hayls: I am wearing a simple ivory cathedral length veil with my gown shown here in an alterations pic. I debated wearing pearl accessories but will now I am leaning towards a more blingy-bracelet and earrings set. No necklace.

      FoxyBride14:  Dress twin? Would love to see some wedding day pics of this gown in action, are you going to post a recap??

    I totally wanted cathedral length, but nothing that would cover my train.  The lace on my train is the best part of my dress!  

    Necklace pictured too, no belt, small pink pearl earrings with a low, curly updo…
