I personally love the sash. Whether or not you wear the sash, I think pearl jewelry would look really pretty with the dress, but especially since it looks like the sash has pearls in it. My dress is champagne with ivory lace overlay too, and that’s probably what I’ll go with!

MrsTtoB:  I am so glad you chose this dress, it was my favorite!  I think no Sash With the pretty lace I feel like anything else is taking away the beauty of this dress! You look awesome and congrats on your weight loss (I am a fluffy girl too! 😉 )

My dress was ivory over light gold (which is similar to the champagne) and I had pearls.

MrsTtoB:  Congrats on picking your dress, I think you made a great choice! 🙂

As far as accessories……I think a pearl necklace will look great! Maybe something like these that combine a little bling with the pearls.

Personally, I like the sash because I think it defines your waist well. The one in the picture above is pretty, but I also like these.

I was 40 when I was married and I wasn’t fond of the whole veil thing, although I think that was just me. For your hair maybe consider a fancy clip or bit of bling.

That said, I’m not the world’s best accesorizer…..so you should pick what makes you happy! 🙂

Not sure if the earrings would be overkill with the pearls or not, but if your hair is up, you might want to consider earrings too.

I vote no sash just because the lace is soo beautiful I would let the dress shine on its own:) I think pearls would look lovely and classy (but I’m biased cuz I loveeee pearls and lace…so classic). Plus I think they would go with your venue better 🙂 if u are up for a veil I thinks chapel or cathedral length would be stunning with this gown!! 

No matter what you look amazingi in your dress and are going to make a gorgeous bride!!!

We are dress twins and I chose a plain satin ivory ribbin for a sash. I love the look of a bow in the back. For jewelry I selected pearls with a pearl and rhinestone pendant, matching earrings and a pearl and rhinestone bracelet. I am not going to wear a veil because I feel like it makes me look weird and my heair will be half up half down at my fiance’s request.  I got Nina Chrysta wedge pumps as well.

 I had purchased rhinestone blingy jewelry at first (this is my second dress due to dress regret) and returned it for the pearls because everyone said they looked better.

 

 

I think that sash makes the dress look even more amazing and you should definitely wear it. And for jewelry, i vote for something with a mixture of bling and pearls to tie it all together.

 

 

Hope some of that was helpful to you!

MrsTtoB:  So happy you went with this one! It looks fantastic!!

For accessories, I would wear drop earrings, a dainty necklace, and maybe a thin cuff bracelet.  I would say no to the sash (this dress is gorgeous as is! and I think no sash will be most figure flattering), and a cathedral length veil with some lace on the bottom edge to carry over what’s on the dress (not too much though).  Maybe a ncie combin your hair?  If you want a jacket or bolero for ceremony, see if it’s possible to order extra fabric to construct one, or go with something simple- it will be tough to find something simliar without competing with the lace on the dress.  I posted some photos below.  

I found all of the below accessories (minus veil) on Etsy…

I think anything with pearls will work really well.

Yay! I love this dress on you! i really like the sash and so pretty for a vineyard wedding! I also think pearls would look really pretty and classic. You could also do a birdcage veil with the dress with a pearl/bling comb or brooch in your hair!

<br />I really love the sash you have in that picture!  It goes great with the dress.

I always say no bolero, I think it cuts people off at weird spots.  That is a super flattering dress and I think you look beautiful!  Love the sash.  And a pearl necklace would look great.
