Im attending a black tie optional wedding on Saturday and was hoping for some advice on what to wear. Its a little too late to change my mind about the dress, the question is the shoes…do they go, and if not, what would go better? Also, what jewelry would be appropriate? Ill have an updo and a clutch (not sure about which one yet)…So, earrings, necklace, bracelet? All or none of the above? Gold or silver jewelry? Any ideas or opinions would be appreciated!

dress, yes. shoes, no. They don’t go with the dress, and I like the dress more.

do you have a plain nude shoe?

I do have a plain nude pump, I just wasnt sure that would be formal enough for black tie optional?

jessi.kissinger: No i don’t think a nude one would. I think a plain black pump would be fine. I also don’t know if that dress is cocktaily enough for black tie. But, it’s too late to change your mind so I would stick with blakc shoes

I’m not sold on those shoes. I think a plain nude or black shoe would be better.

the dress is more casual (because of the crochet and the color) and would clash w fancy/blingy shoes.
To fancify it a bit- instead, go classic. Do your hair in a sleek classic updo (like an Audrey Hepburn bun), wear simple silver jewelry, a sleek black clutch, and sleek black pumps (like Sam edelmans w a bare instep).

Since the wedding is black tie optional I do not think this dress is formal enough. It kind of reminds me of something oyu would wear to a club. If people do decide to go black tie there will be men in tuxedos and women in gowns. I would recommend an LBD since it is much easier to dress up.

First of all, you have a fantastic body and that dress looks great on you! I agree with the PP, the sparkly shoes, combined with a very formfitting dress, make the oufit more appropriate for a club than a black tie optional aka fancy cocktail reception.
I second the opinion that that dress is a little casual for the occasion. Is there any way you can wear another dress, perhaps made with higher quality material such as silk, satin, etc?
