Hmm, do you happen to have any closeup photos of the details on the torso/waistband?

Going by the style of the dress, you might want to look into Seychelles for shoes.

Alternatively, offbeatbride has occasional shoe posts where they showcase flats – just find the shoes tag and…well…look for flats.

Regarding hair accessories, you could talk to your florist.  I’m getting floral hair pins made for about $25.

@JazzJune:  Firstly, your dress is stunning. For being “utterly clueless” about bridal dresses, you sure do have fabulous taste.

Secondly, I think you should check out Etsy for jewelry (huge variety of jewelry). I would not do pearls for your earrings/bracelet (too much pearl). I would suggest something with a bit of sparkle (or even colour, if you want):

Crystal Drop Earrings                                Mint Green Earrings

Leaf Cuff Bracelet                                     Rhinestone Bracelet

If you have your heart set on pearls, I would suggest mixing pearls/sparkle (but make sure your pearls are not too ivory-coloured):

Pearl/Crystal Teardrop                               Erin Crystal/Pearl Earrings

Ivory Pearl/Crystal Bracelet                        Crystal/Rhinestone/Pearl Cuff

As for shoes, you should first start your search at Shopstyle.com (shopping database that allows you to narrow your search by colour, style, size, price, etc.). Here are a couple flats I found:

J Crew Bijoux           

Jeffrey Campbell Martini

Enzo Angiolini Brandil

Janine White Laser Cut

Tradesy Ivory Pearl Flats/Clutch

@JazzJune:  Hahaha πŸ˜€ It’s really easy to style such a gorgeous gown, seriously. 

As for headpieces, I actually like the Twigs & Honey one the model is wearing in the stock photo (I esp. love that it’s feathers made to look like a flower). The issue, though, is that it’s T&H, and not everyone is going to pay $120 for a flower comb. So…Etsy once again is a great place to find similar, or even not-so-similar flowers:

Peony Flower Clip ($30)                     Feather Flower Fascinator ($45)


Or you can deviate from the flower pin, and go with a sparkly or pearlescent hair ornament (still in a floral/leaf design, though):

Antique Brass Comb ($95)                Rhinestone Fascinator ($195)


My honest vote lies with the large flower, particularly because you’re having a lovely garden wedding. Have you considered using a fresh flower instead? Maybe you could arrange something with your florist or DIY it. See how excited the first bride is to have her fresh peony? πŸ˜›
