The bride has chosen this dress for us bridesmaids and I am having trouble deciding what accessories (if any) and what hairstyle would go best with this dress. I am also nervous about taking the dress to be altered because I am not familiar with seamstresses here in Austin, Tx or how much they typically charge in this area. Any advice or recommendation would be great!

Have you spoken to the bride in case she’s already thought about hairstyles for the BM’s? I think a really simple gold necklace with gold earrings would suit the dress perfectly.

Some brides provide the accessories for their bridesmaids as gifts. If you’re thinking of going out and buying something specifically to go with this dress, you might want to ask the bride first if she wants you to find your own accessories. Otherwise I agree with littlemissmoo that something simple in gold would look great!
Where did you buy the dress from? Some salons do alterations right in their store. And make sure you buy your shoes before you have the dress cut short!

Oh and as far as hairstyle, first check with the bride if she has any preference to hairstyle (updo or downdo, for example).
I think something with a lot of loose curls would compliment the pickups in the dress nicely:

What kind of alterations do you need to have done?

I think some earrings like this would look great with your dress! No need for a necklace and if you wanted a bracelet that would work too. Since there is so much going on with the dress I would absolutely wear your hair up!
