i think if you add simple elements, like a non bling hair piece, it will help it match your vibe a bit. the beaded straps can be your “jewelry”   its a beautiful dress

Just wanted to pop in and say that dress is stunning! As far as having it match your vibe, I agree with PP keep everything pretty no-fuss with your hair/makeup, keep the flowers in pastel shades. Whenever I hear “outdoor/barn” I always think “cowboy boots” – but that dress definitely wouldn’t be done justice with cowboy boots – but what about some turquoise accessories or accents (double whammy as your something blue!) to bring in a bit of an outdoorsy/barn feel?

This dress is gorgeous, and I think it could create a beautiful “classy-rustic” look if you pair it with the right accessories.  Here are a few belts I found on Etsy which are rustic looking, but also sophisticated enough to stand up to that dress:

And my favorite:

Wearing your hair loose will also help.  Have you seen the half up side hair style?  I think that would be a perfect look to show off the back of the dress, while also letting your hair flow freely.  I also think you could do a floral headpiece with some beaded/rhinestone elements (like this one:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/177165683/gold-and-ivory-hair-comb-vintage?ref=sr_gallery_18&ga_search_query=floral+hairclip+bridal&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery )

MeredithRose:  I adore this dress – do you have a pic of you in it.  I think it sounds fine for your vision.
