I need to see the dress on you to determine where and how I would jazz up the dress.

I kind of agree that this would be easier if we could see the dress on.  All this being said, I honestly think your dress will look beautiful with just a sash!

The dress in your photo is quite lovely as is. But you want more sparkle…so here’s what I would do:

Add beading to your sweetheart neckline. Don’t loose the integrity of the neckline though.

Wear sparkly, big earrings, but don’t add a necklace.

I would add some additional beading to your skirt especially the areas where the tulle is less and the light will catch the sparkle. In the pic the very bottom of the dress you can see the lace clearly. That’s where I would add more bling.

I think if you wanted to add some tiny (and I do mean TINY) silk flowers with rhinestones to  trim to the top it is doable, but you’d have to go very subtle so it doesn’t change the overall look of your dress too much.  I wouldn’t do any old silk flower or applique on this dress…you want to make sure it fits the design and doesn’t look out-of-place.  

Since you are in NY, I highly recommend M&S Schmalberg in NYC. They are um, AMAZING at silk flowers.  My mom and I went there to get some silk flowers for my dress, and it was like silk flower heaven. They have ones with rhinestones or pearls in the middle, just stunning. But be prepared to pay a price for these, they look amazing and are expensive as they are handmade.  Totally worth it thought, they are gorgeous!
