I’m wearing the Romona Keveza RK831V for my ceremony and need help picking out accessories.
I didn’t purchase the belt shown in the photo because it was $800 (!!) but would love something in a similar shape that doesn’t wrap around my entire waist- I think this helps pull in the waist area. I’m also looking for ideas on earrings that would go well with the look (I don’t think I want to wear a necklace), a headpiece, and your thoughts on a chapel vs cathedral raw edge veil. So just to summarize:
1. Belt/sash similar to the one shown in photo
Some other tidbits that might be helpful: I’m only 4’11” (will wear 4″ heels), so I dont want anything that is too overwhelming on my frame. I also prefer gold toned jewelry to silver, but am unsure if it’s okay to mix/match with my accessories.
Thanks for your help!

I would do some earrings for sure. Depending on the venue and the formality of your wedding, some delicate chandelier earrings would look great

MrsPHopefully: True, the venue does matter. It’s at the Peabody Library in Baltimore and starts at 6 PM, so it’s quite formal.

- Wedding: June 2014 - Gold Hill Gardens
My dress is similar, wrapped sweetheart on the top, flowy on the bottom. My mom has made a loom beaded sash for me that’s attached to 2 in wide ribbon, so I can’t help much there . . . I’m trying to figure out necklace, earrings, and bracelet, though I tried on a gorgeous necklace at Nordstrom by Nadri over the weekend. It’s called the Teardrop Pendant and I definitely recommend checking it out! It’ll be beautiful with that sweetheart neckline, I think, and they have a matching bracelet. I will be wearing my hair up (think Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner) with an elbow length veil. My mom is also beading the edge of it and will be doing a Tree of Life design on it in seed beads and antique sequins.

nuggetsoflove: So if you like gold toned jewelry, then make sure you get a gold toned sash/belt. Here iare a fewsash suggestions from etsy:

I think once you pick the sash, you can then pick your other accessories based off of it so that it all ties together. Hope that helps!

You look so, so beautiful! I love your dress! Also, I LOVE your venue – I went to a wedding there and it was so enchanting.
I think a belt, earrings, and raw edge cathedral veil. You can find less expensive belts at David’s Bridal, and I would imagine on Etsy as well.

hyzenthlay: The Nadri necklace looks beautiful! I’m not sure if I will do a necklace, but yours would definitely be a contender if I did. I’m trying to decide whether to do my hair in a loose updo or half down. Your veil sounds so unique =)
howtobeawife: I love your suggestions. I guess I’m stuck on the gold/silver because I only tried on silver toned sashes, so it’s hard for me to picture how a gold toned sash would look.
oneyearout: Thanks! I love the venue too. I’ve checked David’s Bridal a few times, am hoping some of their veils goes on sale.
