@Barbiestylez:  that dress is stunnin btw, i stared at it for a second. it will definitely steal the show, so i wouldnt do over the top makeup unless that is just your personal style/preference. something simple, minimal makeup, rosy cheeks (similar to your cheeks in the pic you posted) and a neutral eye shadow, nothing resembling a smoky eye. If you would like, a bold, but pastel lip color would suffice such as a pale pink or other soft color. (or if you are a red lip girl then go for it)

 

as far as hair, I always prefer a loose low or defined high bun or pinned back in curls with a dress that resembles yours simply to not take away from the dress and make your look overwhelming.

ETA: i forgot jewelry ! very minimal. maybe something sparkley in your hair. not a big chunky costume jewelry like necklace. Personally I would avoid the necklace all together, but im sure you can find something soft and pretty. I would wear a bracelet, but I know most ppl dont on their wedding day.

again everything is subjective to your personal style and what kind of feel/look you want to have.

I’d say big loose curls, no necklace, a bracelet, some drop earrings, and bronzy natural sunkissed style makeup 🙂

@Barbiestylez:  I think yes to a necklace….  could be something simple like this, but I also like statement necklaces with sweetheart necklines too!

I’d go with a littttttllle vampiness. Possibly a red lip and big lashes. With loose curls (down) and drop diamond earrings

@Barbiestylez:  I’d do half-up with big, loose curls. Single tier cathedral length veil with a raw edge. Statement necklace. Blingy bracelet. Smoky eye with that awesome pink lip, drag-queen contouring. Pink nails to match the lips.

a statement bracelet, something like this 🙂 

Are you doing a veil?  Or a headpiece?  Flower crown?

 

And the look I mentioned above was something like this 🙂

Very small drop necklace and hair left down…or something along those lines. That dress is super busy in a really great and unique way and I think you should not overpower it or yourself with a really complex hair style or chunky jewelry. P.s. you are gorgeous and so is the dress!

I like both hair styles a lot! The only thing I noticed when I scanned back up to check the dress was that a fair amount of upper back showed. I may check to see if you like it better covered by hair or exposed. The hair would probably impact, as well, if you wanted a necklace and the type of earring.
