I’m going to be doing some of my engagement photos wearing this dress and I need help accessorizing it! FI is going to be wearing a slim cut black suit with black Converse sneakers, skinny black tie, rocking his little faux-hawk… I’d like to do something similarly playful with this dress while still keeping it girly. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

wow I love this dress where did you find it? Also I think it’s beautiful the way it is n wouldn’t go too over the top with accessories bc it will take away from the beauty of the dress and detailing. Very nice!!

It’s from Nordstrom… my fiance told me I could have it if I promised to just wear it for the photos and then send it back. My mom suggested I keep it for the rehersal dinner or to change into during my reception. Two of my bridesmaids told me that I was crazy if I was even THINKING about sending it back. I think FI is overruled 🙂

I too don’t think you need much at all! I think it would look nice if you leave your hair down and life softy and wavy. if you want to add something, maybe like a plain headband..but you dont really need much!

I would go very minimal on accessories. I would not wear a necklace, keep earrings to a stud (or none at all), but I would wear a bracelet. I’d keep hair simple, too.
How would it look with some kind of cowboy boot? For some reason that’s what I keep thinking of. 🙂

I got cute purple heels with a little bow yesterday, but I haven’t tried them on with the dress yet. I considered cowboy boots… hmm… I have some at home, maybe I will have to look at that too! I guess it would depend on where we end up taking photos. My photog hinted at some “fabulous location in Seattle” where she says she has never taken engagement photos before but she has yet to tell me exactly where that is yet 🙂

I was about to suggest cowboy boots…or even some rain boots in a crazy pattern. Take the heels, the cowboy boots, and the rain boots and maybe even a cowboy hat and have a ball. That way you can go glam on some shots…and crazy on others.

Love the dress! I agree with keeping accessories simple. I like the idea of cowboy boots, but I’m not sure how well it would go with what your FI is wearing!

love the dress! I’d do some kind of shoe (like you were thinking) and minimal jewelry!
