    I love the dress! I think it looks better without the sweater

    I am not a fan of the sweater but how about a nice coloured cardigan or blazer?

    Do you have a cropped cardigan, maybe? I think part of why I’m not a big fan of the sweater is that it seems to lie at a weird place compared to the hem of the dress. The dress is really cute, though!

    Could you do a denim or leather jacket instead?  Or even a blazer? I think any of those would work better.

    I love the model’s SANDALS!

    I like the dress by itself without any sweater or cardigan added. A wrap would be nice.

    Maybe a cardi with a belt?

    just a belt?

    maybe a shoe change?

    wear your hair up and then take it down (or vice versa)?

    add a chunky or long necklace for some?

    scarf?

    hat?

    For a pop of color, maybe a cardigan or wrap in your wedding color?

    Ooh, I really like the blazer idea that PP suggested above.

    I agree with PPs that something like a cardigan or blazer would be better.  That sweater is adorable, but where it falls on that dress chops you in half weirdly.

    I agree with the PPs to skip the sweater.  If you want to do a costume change without having to actually change the dress, try putting a dress type coat over it and a different pair of shoes.  Something like this instantly gives you a whole different outfit.

    Bring a bag of long scarves and pashimas – you could always add/take away jewelry – bring a hat, a feather clip for your hair or a jeweled headband – crazy long earrings and a silver bracelet cuff.  You could also bring a small bouquet and props like champagne glasses, bubbles, parasol and the like.  Have a great time and skip that sweater – too drastically different and will take away from the dress unless you just get shots of your upper half of body.

    Have fun and congratulations!
