I absolutely love the bridal gown I am going to wear. Its so completely different that what I thought I would have chosen but couldn’t be happier. Because the dress is so different, however, I can’t seem to begin to picture the best accessories and bouquet to go with it. I like the jewelry in the picture but can’t see it clear enough to look for something similar. I would love and appreciate any ideas from you guys. Here is the dress:

What kind of beading is in the gown? I feel like you can never go wrong with pearls for a wedding dress, especially if there are some on the gown. A dainty chain and pendant may be nice as well. You could always check with relatives and friends for something old or something borrowed to wear around your neck.

I think a bare neck would be perfect for that dress just because it is so intricate. I think a drop earring and simple bracelet would be perfect.

I agree with froyo, no necklace would be best for that dress. It’d be too much going on up top. It’s such a gorgeous, gorgous dress. 🙂

ou really don’t need anything. It might overwhelm the gown.

Thanks guys! I think I will try to find some simple earrings that have a vintage feel with some pale pink color in them (pearls may just do the trick!) but will go with a bare neck. You guys are the best 🙂
PS I am thinking of shoes that are pale pink or bronze. The shoes will be one of my favorite things to shop for and wont mind if it takes a while to find the perfect pair 😉

That is so, so beautiful!
I recently discovered Luxe Deluxe’s Etsy shop (pretty sure someone posted about it on Weddingbee), and there are lots of sweet earrings there that you might like, including some pearls… http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=62605§ion_id=&page=3

A cathedral veil. No necklace. Drop earrings. Bracelet.
I have seen the dress on a couple of ladies at the boutique when I was shopping for my dress it is gorgeous! Congratulations.

Thanks guys! I love the dress too. Its funny because I originally went in looking for an elegant but simply stated sheath….I picked something that is pretty much the complete opposite! Thanks for Etsy site, its yummy!

Prarieway- You sound just like my daughter! she went looking for the sheath sexy and tried this one on and it was THE dress!
She is not wearing a necklace since the bodice of the dress is so ornate.
I found a Teresa on Etsy- tstudio.etsy.com and bought this beautiful vintage bracelet handmade to fit my daughter, plus the "Colleen" chandelier earrings. (I’ve attached a picture of the bracelet)
Teresa was wonderful to work with, answered texts quickly and even went to a local bridal salon to match the color of the swavarski (sp?) pearls to the dress (it comes in 3 colors). She is in CA and we are in MO. how great was that. if you use her you will not be disappointed!
She is also planning to wear a birdcage veil which looks great but I think a cathredal veil would be gorgous!
I think you have the most beautiful dress!

I think beautiful earrings would do the trick! And maybe a simple bracelet for good measure.

I agree with a bare neck, I think a flower for your hair matching the flowers on the dress would look beautiful. Any kind of plain veil would work too.

You guys truly are the best! Mamadee thank you for the referal and pictures, I am looking forward to browsing her stuff on Etsy. I wonder how many other brides find THE dress and find that it is so different from anything she had expected 🙂

I love your dress! I tried on something very similar recently and loved it on myself too, in spite of thinking I would go for something much simpler and elegant! I “knew” by the way the two styles of dresses made me FEEL! (my style is generally eclectic, but usually with simplicity ) ..now i dont want to tone it down at all! -it seems to me if i can be a princess for a day, why shouldnt i ? – I havent decided on “the one” yet though..my wedding is late next summer.
I would accessorize this dress very lightly, you dont want to detract from the beauty of the gown: bare neck, flowy. open hair with a flower or comb, drop ear rings and a vintagey-looking bracelet. Perfect!
I dont know if you have found shoes, or what kind you are looking for, but i thought these would work well, if youre looking for a flat pair… or a second pair for later in the evening. They are by feesk and available on etsy, and would be a lovely complement.
