So I’ve found the dress, now I’m having trouble with how to accessorize it. Primarily because the dress and details of the dress are pretty different compared to others.<br /><br />Here is the dress:
What kind of necklace can I wear with this? Should i even wear one? I’m worried that it will end up being too “blingy”. Earrings? Would this work with a cathedral veil? shorter one? Ack! Help!

So pretty! I just commented on another thread the same thing I’ll say to you, I think it really depends on how you style your hair! It looks like you might have short hair, though? So in that case I would go with some feminine chandelier earrings that are similiar to the beading on the dress, and not do a necklace, because a necklace along with the beading at the bust line will be over kill! I think less is more in these situations. Let the dress and your beauty speak for itself!
As far as a veil, I’m not too fond of them, but I feel like you’d need a longer one to go with the flow of the long train, a short one might “cut off” the symmetry. <br /><br />I bought my statement earrings at Franchesca’s Closet for a steal!

angel143: Holy cow, that’s a beautiful dress!!! It looks better on you than the model! I would say chandelier earrings and a very simple necklace. That dress deserves a cathedral veil. Try one in a dark ivory or cream. Try to match it to the dress.

I love your dress! Mine is champagne too and I’m accessorizing with rhinestone and ivory pearl earrings and a rhinestone bracelet. I think a long veil would look fantastic with your dress. The key is to avoid white accessories I think. Anything in the ivory/cream colour family will go.

I’d probably do no necklace, but blingy earrings and maybe a bracelet (I’d try to choose something that matches/goes with the bling on the dress).
As for veil, I would definitely go with a plain thin veil that you can see your dress through the veil. A long veil would be a beautiful dramatic look, but a shorter one would show off your train more. It just depends on your vision and what you are comfortable with.

Beautiful dress. Before I opened the thread and actually saw your dressI imediately thought blush and rose gold accessories would be great.
But seeing your dress I think diamonds are best.
I wouldn’t wear a necklace with this. If you really want to though a simple solitaire on a necklace bit longer than choker length could be pretty.
long earrings for sure. You could go more modern in shape and stone simplicity or more ornate to match the details of the dress .
cathedral veil will look great.
SherryBlossom78: I agree. The real bride looks better than the model 🙂
