Your dress is STUNNING on you! I like it as is without a belt, but then again I’m horrible at accessorizing and I’m sure a lot of other bees have some more useful input!

I don’t think it *needs* a belt… but the right belt could work.  Have you tried any on? I find that taking photos with different belts can really help see. I’d pick something simple… like a sash in a color or a skinny rhinestone belt if you add one. 

I would pair a simple necklace with it. For necklaces, you want their shape to mimick the neckline on your dress. So a pendant on a medium length chain would be better than a short strand of pearls. Here’s a guide. <br /><br /><br /><br />

I would just do earrings (simple drop or beautiful diamond studs) and a thin belt. The dress has beautiful detail and I think anything too big or too flashy would take away from the dress.

Palladiumandasschers:  Congrats on getting your gorgeous dress!  I’m a fan of sashes and belts with wedding dresses, so maybe you can try some to see how you like it paired with your dress.

For accessories, I wouldn’t go overboard with the jewelry though since it looks like your dress already has some sparkle .  A combo of any 2 pieces like statement earrings with a bracelet would be plenty. I’d even look into some rose gold jewelry since I think that would really highlight the peachy color tone of your dress.

I love your dress! That neckline is gorgeous! Wish I would have tried this on! My dress is also a Maggie in light gold 🙂

I would juat accessorize with earrings and a bracelet. maybe a small necklace if you felt it was necessary. I don’t like sashes or belts 99% of the time, I think the dresses look better without them.

Palladiumandasschers:  I would go with drop earrings and a chunky bracelet. We can give more advice if you explain how you want to look- what are you going for? I worked high end retail for years, it’s tough to give recommendations if you don’t know someone’s style. Are you classic, preppy, vintage, romantic, etc? Also a bit hard to tell your skintone, gold jewelry could be stunning with this but I can’t tell if your undertones are yellow or red.

A belt would look strange with this dess. Partly because it is a nude color underneath.

I would definately add some nice drop earrings or a nice sparkly headpiece/headband. Gorgeous dress!

Someone I knew from high school wore this dress at her wedding and she wore it with a chunky pearl necklace that had a bit of crystals in the center.  From a distance it almost looked like straps.  It was just absolutely stunningly gorgeous!

Palladiumandasschers:  Ok, that helps a lot! Here’s how I would accessorize for the look you want: 

1. I would add a belt that PERFECTLY matches the underlay color of your dress (I’m sure you could find one or have one made, I would choose something without bling, just a simple sash that will accentuate the goldish color. If you can’t match it I would try a lavendar or light blue sash.

2. Headpiece could be gorgeous, maybe something lace like- 

Or more of a classic bridal headband- 

3. If you choose a headpiece, I would pair with pearl stud earrings and no necklace. If you don’t use a headpiece (maybe you have a veil already) I would go for drop earrings that have a casual ease to them- 

I actually think the beauty of the neckline would compete with a necklace, so my instinct is to have no necklace. 

Does this help?

Palladiumandasschers:  so pretty on you I was between this one and the emma maggie sotterro i went with emma for me in light gold. I’ve never seen lori in light gold it’s stunning. Try a couple belts and see how u feel. 🙂 I did big earrings and bracelet. I feel like if you do a necklace then do smaller earrings so it’s not too much 🙂
