Beautiful dress!

I don’t think it would look horrible to wear at least a simple necklace and earrings.  My dress had more beading at the bust and around but I still wore jewelry because otherwise I think your neck looks sort of bare.  Worth a look to see what you find.

I think you should look at a larger hoop if you want more poof.  I think that a crinoline that gives that much poof would be hard to find.

I think a larger poof would look great, however i think it looks good the way it is too.
Love the hair and a similar clip would look great!

I personally love the look of a bare neck.  Earrings would be a good idea, but i still love the bare neck.

I like the dress the way it is … I wouldn’t do a larger hoop.  Though, you should make it the way YOU like it!  🙂

Also, I LOVE a bare neck, but think that earrings would look nice.  Something crystal and small.  I think a round hairclip would better compliment your dress.  (Love that updo … very elegant.)  Your dress is beautiful!

It depends on how big you want the poof. If you want it bigger, go for a bigger hoop! I personally like a simple necklace, but it wouldn’t look bad if you have a similar clip. I would also do simple earrings.

I think the Crinoline was just Poofed up before that internet picture was taken. I think you look beautiful in the gown, but if you want it poofier go ahead and get a bigger hoop. I love the hair style and I think a more round clip for your hair would be nice and really complete the look.

BTW Beautiful dress, beautiful bride! People won’t be wondering about the crinoline :o)

I think the crinoline you have is fine. I agree with AzinAugust about the dress being poofed for the internet photo. And your photo was taken in close, so the perspective is different.

And I would actually look for a longer clip instead of a circle one, maybe like a head band type thing to wrap further around the updo. And I would get dangle earrings to match.

I think a bare neck and earrings would look beautiful with your dress.  And yes, I agree with others, wear a round hair piece to match the ones on your gown.

Yeah, I’d find a larger slip. And you’ll be fine w/o a neckalce. But maybe some really simple studs for earrings?

Also, the dress you tried on was probably worn many many times before you, and probably was possibly not handled with the greatest care.  I think your dress may have more fullness as it will be brand new and not handled as much!

I think the dress looked better on you than on the model, probably because the model’s gown is way too puffy.

I would wear something round in silver filigree with rhinestones on my hair and also a pearl necklace with a rhinesone cabochon and a matching bracelet, something like this:

No earrings (if you wear earrings and a hair comb with no necklace your neck will look extremely long, if you don’t wear a necklace your gown won’t look as good as it could otherwise).

keep it simple and don’t do a bigger hoop. I like the hair stle and I think a great pair of earrings would make it awesome. I dont even know if you need a necklace.
