This is my first post on WeddingBee, though I’ve been lurking for a while now.
Okay, so I’m a bit of a tomboy, jeans, t-shirt/pants kinda girl (I pretty it up with a scarf or some flats if I feel inspired, but that’s the extent of it, really…unfortunately!) and my fiance convinced me to buy this very girly dress (sorry if the pic ends up being massive):
And I love it, I do. But…I have no idea how to accessorize! It has so much going on already… Veil or no veil? Small or dangling earrings?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would probably do dangly earrings, and either a hairpiece without a veil, or just a birdcage veil. It’s really elegant as it is without a bunch of add ons. (You could also add a nice bracelet if you feel so inclined).
Do you prefer blingy or pearl type jewelry? That might help people give specific recommendations.

Thanks for your response! As far as jewellery goes, I think it depends on the design. I really like vintage pieces.
Hair flower! Yes! That is what I will do! Thank you!
If anyone has some hair flower recommendations (places you bought from that you’d recommend), I’d love to hear them!

Your dress is really beautiful! It also has a lot of sophistication and elegance on its own and doesn’t need too many “trimmings” so I’m in agreement with the simple hair (like a bun) with the flower. For a bit of bling, some drop earrings would look nice.
Other than that, I don’t think you need much!

no many accessories, keep hair up, a simple veil, pearl earrings…

i actually just stumbled upon some great drop earrings and then read your post. Thanks! 🙂
I love the hair flowers, so many to choose from! Thank you. 🙂
Unfortunately, I cut my hair super short late last year (what was I thinking?) so, at most, I’ll have a barely chin length bob by my wedding date *sigh* Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some rockin’ examples of short haired brides, I just don’t think changing up my look (I’m used to having shoulder length hair or longer) so close to my wedding was a good idea!
