So I’m thinking about ordering these accessories to go with my dress – thoughts?
(the belt pictured doesn’t come with the dress)
This brooch to either sew directly to the dress or on a ribbon as a belt
I’m still debating between a veil and a fancy hair comb (or both) and I think i’ll get a bracelet and forgo the necklace.
What do you think?

@MsGinkgo: I LOVE those earrings! I don’t know why, but i’m a little hesitant about the brooch. To me personally, it feels a bit…is random the word? I do like the sparkle it adds to your dress – maybe sewing it into the dress would feel better? I’m not sure! I’d love to see you in a veil with your dress – so pretty! For what it’s worth, I wore both a veil and a hair comb. 🙂

@pengoala: I agree about the belt in the picture – I don’t like the way the ribbon crosses the fabric but I love the bit of sparkle. The brooch isn’t expensive ($20) so I figure I can see what it looks like applied directly to the dress or on a belt of a different fabric. If I don’t use it, it’s not like I spent a ton of money (the belt in the picture is $250….)

Well you could always buy ribbon and have a tailor or someone who knows how to sew attach it to the ribbon and save yourself $200. I think the belt looks awesome on that dress imo.

I like the brooch without the ribbon, and the earrings are gorgeous! You can’t pick both options in the poll though…

@MsGinkgo: Ooh yeah, $20 is not bad at all! 🙂 Did I tell you I love your dress? It’s so pretty!!

@Monicaab: that’s what I’m thinking. I’ll see how it looks with a different ribbon.
@Rainstorm77: crap! I meant to do a multiple choice poll – fixed that!
@pengoala: thanks! It hasn’t been getting a lot of love from my family but I don’t really care because I love it and that’s what matters.

The earrings are lovely, but I don’t like the belt or even the brooch being in the center. It takes away from the “criss cross” design of your dress.. What about doing a square or roundbrooch at the hip like this?
