I think your dress has lots of sparkle, and if your veil has sparkle too that will compliment the dress as well.  With the beading that is already on your dress I don’t think a belt would work.  You could add some statement earrings and a sparkly bracelet.

I think the dress itself has enough bling, so I wouldn’t do a sash or anything.  Maybe a statement necklace or earrings and a blingy bracelet? And you could do a blingy headpiece and/or have sparkles around the edge of your veil… lots of options, depending on what accessories you want.

I don’t think the dress needs more bling and I don’t think it is a style that would go well with a belt.  I think you should add a statement necklace or a crystle headband.  YOu can also get a veil that has some bling along the edges.  All of those little touches will come together to give you more bling in your look!

I would purchase some additional high quality rhinestones and sparkly beads and get a dressmaker (or skilled sewer) to sew them onto the embroidered flowers on your dress. It should end up looking a little bit like the second dress than bainise2013 posted.

@Bainise2013:  I don’t think the two dresses you posted really have more sparkle than your dress.  I don’t think you need to alter your dress at all, as PPs have mentioned you can add more sparkle through your accessories.

You can definitely wear a headpiece with the veil.  That is what I am going to be doing- you can get a crystal headband and then wear the veil as well, and then if you choose to take the veil off for the reception then you will still have the headband to round out your look.  Here are a few sample pics I just found on google to give you an idea of what you could do.

Can you add more bling to curreny beading? I think you can bling it up with a nice hair comb or headpiece.

@Bainise2013:  I probably wouldn’t go with earrings that long since your dress has straps, but glittery earring/a glittery headband would definitely work!

And you can get the headband online (eBay, Etsy) or at the bridal shop–but online will be WAY cheaper!
