Love how sparkly this dress is, and because of that, go super simple on accessories. If anything, do some earrings, but like you mentioned,  a necklace would not be the best bet for this dress.

Is it long?

sunbrideshine:  It would be foolish to suggest anything without seeing the whole dress.

sunbrideshine:  Can you show us a picture of you in the dress? I’m not sure how I’d offer accessory suggestions without seeing the dress on someone, a model at the very least.

Woahhh! That is so blingy I love it, lol. Is it short or long? if short you could do shoes in your wedding color to make em pop.

Just earrings and keep them small.

sunbrideshine:  I don’t think you need many accessories. I’d probably just go with earrings and their size would depend on whether your hair was up or down and how they looked with the dress. Maybe a bracelet, but I don’t think you will need a bracelet and a necklace would definitely be too much. Any jewelry you pick shouldn’t be super duper blingy because you have all the bling you could need on the dress already.

Here are some examples of what I mean. I ended up with sparkly dress examples because the effect is similar and searching for blingy dresses didn’t give me helpful examples to pull from.

This is along the lines of what I was thinking (sparkly dress and simple, not sparkly earrings–I would keep them as studs if your hair is up and anything dangly but still simple only if your hair is down):

 

It might look good also with no jewelry, as in these two examples:

 

I would say that this is too much. I see that Helen Hunt tried to tone this down by wearing earrings that blend in with her hair, but the earrings + necklace + bracelet are too much IMO. Plus, your dress is even blingier than the sequined one is she’s wearing.

Love the dress! I’m obsessed with bling! The only thing I’d wear personally is earrings & a small bracelet.
