I love it! 🙂 I think a statement necklace like the photo would be nice. It is so beautiful and classic 🙂

I’m a blingy kind of person. So I’d try to find a way to add a little bling. 🙂 It’s lovely though!

spezia:  I think it’s beautiful and would be perfect for a brunch wedding! EEkkkk, so excited for you! I think it looks bridal as it, if you wanted more bling you could switch up the belt, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Good find! 🙂

Beautiful!  You could always switch out the sash for a beaded belt or something more “bridal.”  You could also add a veil or flowers/a jeweled brooch in your hair and I think that will do the trick.

That is perfect for what you’re doing!  What a steal, and BHLDN no less…nice job!

I wouldn’t add much at all, except some nice matching jewelry with a bit of sparkle.  Or, if you’re the pearls type, you could do a set of pearls and then get a super thin sparkly belt to hit right at the center of the belted area already on the dress.  That might add just a touch of bling as well if your jewelry is more subtle.

Beautiful- add a nacklace or larger earrings, but keep the dress the same, in my opinion.

spezia:  What a find! I think it looks perfect the way it is. You could add a broach of some kind to the front of the sash. That could add bling or coor, depending on what you are going for. I think a cameo necklace/broach would look perfect.

spezia:  I wouldn’t worry about that.  I recently went dress shopping for a friend and she kept picking dresses that didn’t scream “bridal” to me, but as soon as we put her hair up and put on a veil, it was bridal.  It’s all in the details!  And everyone will know you are the bride 🙂
