Need help deciding what kind of jewlery to wear (earrings, necklace, or both) as well as whether I should wear a veil or not. I got a Maggie Sottero Bliss Royale dress (see pics attached). I was wanting to wear some sort of small sparkly hair piece with a low bun of some sort (I attached a pic of an idea) but I wasn’t sure how a veil works with that. I also attached two pics of me wearing a two layered veil and a single layered veil. I ended up getting the two layered veil because I liked how the volume looked from the front (it was free with the dress purchase so I wasn’t thinking about it too much) but now that I’m looking back at pics I think the two layered veil is kind of covering the details of the back of the dress. The sales lady said I can always cut the second layer off if I decide I don’t like it. What do you think?

@Rawrritsemily: I like the volume your are getting from the front with the veil but I am like you it is covering up the detail on the straps in the back so I def like the 1 layer from the back more…..sorry I know that wasn’t much help.
As far as accessories, I’d skip the necklace due to the blingy straps on your dress and go with earrings and a bracelet. I also like the idea of a comb and you can certainly still wear an up do with a comb and a veil.
Here are a few pics showing up dos with combs and veils to give you an idea
You can attach it underneath the updo like this
or you can attach it over like this
Here are a few accessory options I think would be pretty with your dress!
This site also has a tons of combs
I got my accessories from there and loved them!

I think a beautiful cuff bracelet like this one by Nadri would be pretty.
I like both veils honestly. I love the volume of the one you selected. While it doesn’t show the back very much, I think it’ll be pretty in pictures. And you can always remove it after the ceremony. Or go with @weddingbound‘s idea to do a single layer veil underneath your hair.

@Rawrritsemily: i love veils, so i would opt for a veil
keep your necklace simple as your top is very busy,
i would also go for chandlier earrings, pearls or rhinestones, its up to you. either would be nice
headpiece, i would do a headband something like this to make the dress stand out

i wouldn’t wear a necklace, especially if you’re getting a headpiece. the detail in the top of your dress is enough and i think the focus should be there!
i LOVE a veil. cuz… when else do you get to wear one? and i don’t think covering back detail is enough reason not to wear one because you’ll only wear it for the ceremony… people will see the back of your dress all night! i love the two layer veil but that’s just me.
i think pp have posted GREAT examples of dangly earrings that would be lovely. you coudl always do a veil for ceremony and headpiece for reception!
