Pearls seem to me to be the most “classic bridal”

I love this dress! I like the sound of pearls, you could also do a long veil. I would do a long chapel length veil with delicate lace around the edges. Maybe a sparkly haircomb. I don’t think you need a belt, part of the beauty of this dress is the simplicity. 

What type of ceremony/reception are you having?

Birdcage veil for sure, and I would add dangly earrings with pearls and rhinestones, a pearl and rhinestone bracelet, and a pearl and rhinestone brooch comb for your hair. Etsy has a great (and affordable) selection for all these!!

ms-tea:  Pearl necklace and braclet, a bouquet and veil and it will look plenty bridal.

Definitley wear big statement jewelry pieces (do not have to be super traditional either). The dress is lovely by the way! I LOVE the back. You could also wear some sexy shoes with it!

ms-tea:  OHHHHH I LOVE this dress, sorta Aubrey Hepburnish to me. Actually it just made me think this 

 

Or this. 

 

I think you can do a veil, a very simple high quality (soft not stiff) silk tulle veil that flows. A bird cage will look good as well.

I think that dress is absolutely beautiful and you will receive endless compliments. You will be wearing the dress, not the dress wearing you. I love that style! You can add a veil and a classic necklace if you like! You can do whatever you like with your hair! I truly love it. One of my favorites I’ve seen. Congrats!!!
