I bet you can find bracelets that somewhat fit the theme of the design along the waist line of the dress…

Shoes should be pretty easy- it looks like you can find something with a little shimmer in it to tie in the dresses design.

I always get stumped on strapless dress necklaces! My dress is lacy. Your dress has two different things going on that you wouldn’t want to wear a necklace that detracts from the top of the gown. Wouldn’t you agree? 

I think when you go in for your hair trial and show them your dress, the hairdresser might have some good ideas. Are you planning on wearing a veil?

you could also get clip on hair extensions if you wanted your hair longer for that day!

I was thinking along the lines of sparkles– a baubly bracelet that reflects the baubly design in the waist line would pull the whole thing together.  Maybe a fascinator with a flower and some feathers in your hair?

Maybe some sparkly drop earrings as well?

I would pick out some great drop earrings that have the same sparkle as your dress. For your hair, I would take your dress picture in when you have your trial run for your hair to see what she recommends.

SWOOOOOON!!!!  I LOVE Jenny Packham! Large chandelier or vintage earrings would be amazing! No necklace. Lucky girl!

Oh my gosh!!! I absolutely LOVE your dress. It’s GORGEOUS!!!


I would probably skip the necklace and do big earrings…lots of bling. That dress is gorgeous alone so I would keep the jewelry to a minimum…wow..it’s SO pretty!!

i would definitely go for colored shoes, like silver or even your flower or bridesmaids colors.  i’m wearing light gold shoes, and some other weddingbee brides wore/are wearing colored shoes, so i’m all for it.  i think peep-toes would like nice…and if you still want to go with the earthy bride look, flat shoes would work or go barefoot with a sparkly anklet. 

also, i think depending on your accessories, hair, and make-up, your dress can go along with the more bohemian, earthy look or hollywood glam look.  that is a very gorgeous dress!
