That dress is fabulous on you, you totally made the right choice! I agree the no belt+ statement necklace looks the best! I’m not sure what to do about the veil/head piece, that’s a toughie.

Skyis2high:  Your dress is sooo beautiful!! I love that color. Looks awesome on you!! I think either way, sash or no sash, you’d be good. Sorry that’s not much help, but both look great with the dress.  Congrats!!

I voted for this dress! It looks amazing and so beautiful!! I have dress envy haha.

Statement necklace for sure.

I personally think you could wear a veil, as long as it was the same colour, maybe custom made.

This dress is beautiful – but with the sash! It’s just gorgeous and unique in every way.

Skyis2high:  no necklace or sash, I agree with you! Maybe a statement cuff bracelet

NO SASH! I’m serious! It’s oversize and distracting, and that’s what will date this dress in photos in decades to come. (I see belts on several brdies on WB, belts with big honkin’ flowers, and they are sooooo distracting…)

Necklace? I’m on the fence about that, but I do like the spare, elegant look of no chunky necklace. You have a pretty figure and this dress is lovely, so it’s a classy look. Piling stuff onto it makes it less classy.

The grey color is pretty, I like it!

loveeeee your dress!!! i voted for it too!

My votes:

no sash or necklace… 

statement cuff bracelet

custom veil… Contact the bridal salon… They can order material directly with your dress so it can be a perfect match.

btw… I usually love sashes but your dress looks sooooo pretty without it 🙂

Colored dress wearer here! I wore a black dress. My accessories (shoes, earrings) were also black, but I wore a champagne veil. You could order a grey veil (etsy might be a good place to look), but you could also save some money and just go to a fabric store and buy grey tulle! I made my veil from my mom’s, and it cost me about 5 bucks (I made her long catherdral veil into a drop veil, and drop veils are easy to make!).

I think, as for the necklace question, that you could choose either a statement necklace with simple earrings (the one you have on is quite nice) or really dramatic drop earrings. I like simple, too (no sash for me!), and that’s the route I would take. It’s hard to remember, too, when you look at yourself in the bridal salon, that you will be all done up on that day with makeup, hair, flowers, etc, and so something that looks “plain” in the shop can look very elegant on that day.

I’d go with a necklace…but the white one looks odd. Maybe metal or a different color.
