Hi everyone! My wedding dress is made by La Sposa, as part of their Dentelle collection (the name of the dress is "Megara," I believe it is the 3rd thumbnail under the Dentelle collection):
Sorry there is no direct link to the dress, for some reason. Anyway, it has a lot of lace, and a scalloped neckline. I don’t really wear jewelry, so for the life of me, I don’t know how to accessorize this gown! I’ve tried looking on all those advice websites and all that, and they don’t really address scalloped necklines. Can you wear necklaces that drop? Should you stick to something that sits higher? Can you wear chandelier earrings? Should the jewelry be plain because of all that lace? I am also having a problem with the veil. The bridal store doesn’t have the veil in the picture, so I can’t try it on, but they think a floor length veil is too overwhelming for the dress. Should I stick to a plain edge veil? Fingertip? Would a cathedral length be too much or take away from the lace detail on the back? You girls have such great style, any help would be so appreciated!

Your dress is beautiful. I would go with antique or antique looking jewelry, and for a veil I think anything simple with matching lace edging would look pretty. The veil in the picture is really nice.

unfortunately i can’t follow the link bc of work…..but whenever i think of lace, i think of pearls. i think vintage.
perhaps a pearl choker would do? or maybe some marquisite….that usually looks pretty vintagey.
i dont think your jewelry has to be plain jane. just one overpower your features with overly large accesories.
would a mantilla veil work? i believe you can get those in any length…..

I agree with GetMarried4less on the Mantilla veil. And maybe pearl drop earrings, to me no necklace is needed… it would take away from the goregous gown.

I would be glad to give you some accesory advice – but as of lately – I keep losing all my accesories! i’ve lost all my jewelry, my scarves, my sunglasses! lol –
but as for this dress – since I DO wear a lot of accesories – i would say keep it simple with a diamon or pearl studs. I would find a natural floral accent to put in your hair (if it is going to be up) or to wear on your wrist.

I say go for chandelier earings in pearl and/or diamonds and a complimentary bracelet. I agree with MsIndecisive that a necklace might take away from the neckline. I think almost any type of veil would go with this stunning gown! I would go for a cathedral if you really like the style.
it will be gorgeous!
