@EphanieStay:  What does your mom’s veil look like? I wanted to wear my mom’s veil, but as you said, it was very 80s and I just couldn’t figure out how to rock it, as much as I wanted to!  I love the sentiment though, and if you can swing it, I think you should totally do it!

I’m on board for a statement necklace over a sash, but that’s just me. You’ll look gorgeous whatever you choose – I love your dress on you!

As far as the belt, I am personally not a fan of dark colored sashes on dresses (or most sashes) so I do vote to veto the belt. I am also 5’0 and the silhouette of my dress was A-line with a princess cut so it was one piece from top to bottom, going in at the waist and flaring out. I had some major dress regret and went with my friends to figure out how to fix the dress up. My friends were heavily leaning toward me pairing a sash with the dress and I even scoured Etsy and some other places for a good long while deciding whether or not I should get one. In the end I made the decision not to because, being 5’0 tall, the last thing I wanted was for something to cut me in the middle. The whole point of picking a seamless silhouette was to appear leaner and taller. So in the end I did not go with a sash, and although I did not LOVE my dress, I am happy I made that decision. Anyway, just letting you know a personal story from someone who is the same height as you and why I decided to do what I did. 

As far as veil, it does look like you could pull off raw edge if that’s what you want. I happen to think raw edge looks good with most dresses, and I don’t think that yours is an exception. Maybe if you can post a picture of your mom’s veil also? Hope This Helps.
