So my dress finally arrived and I went and tried it on on the weekend!!
I was SOOOOOOOOO relieved that when I tried it on I still loved it and any doubts that I had melted away, phew!
Now I need some help with accessories.<br />I’m thinking the mantilla veil, and some similar beading stitched onto the dress as i’m holding in the photos and either the big earrings, or the smaller diamond earrings and the diamond necklace, but i don’t know!
what do you ladies think?
please ignore all of the funny faces, I basically just asked my mum to continuously take photos even if i wasn’t looking, hence the strange expressions!
Also my dress is still a size too big and hasn’t been altered yet
This is with the plain veil and big earrings (ignore the necklace)
Here is the manilla veil with the beading on the dress, small earrings, necklace and tiara (obviously too much, just thought i’d see what it all looked like on at once! bit of overkill!)
Here is them manila veil with the small diamond earrings and necklace (no tiara)
Here are the big earrings with necklace (too much I think)
Pearl necklace? would also wear with some sort of pearl studs
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks ladies 🙂

Go with the smaller diamond earrings and diamond necklace!!!! I feel like they compliment the dress while still adding a bit of extra elegance. I feel like the large earrings and the pearl necklace both take away from the dress, while the small earrings and diamond necklace really compliment the look.

Im a pearl person myself, I think they look timeless and elegant, I would not wear large earrings with a mantilla veil, I feel like they would compete. I disagree that the pearls compete, I think if you showed a full pic of the dress with the pearl necklace it would help, but you could possibly go for a single strand of pearls. but definitely go small with the earrings.

Here’s my pick: plain veil, small earrings, big necklace, beaded belt.

I love the idea of a dangly – but those are a bit big. Fun, but your gown is such a statement and gorgeous–you don’t need much. And I’m such a pearl girl, but there is so much glam with the belt, I’d look for a little dangle earrings (not as big) – maybe some pearl and sparkle….and go without necklace.
You look like a model, so I’m sure it will all look great!

I like the small diamond earrings, plain veil, and pearls.
I think that mantila veil hits you at a weird place–right where the dresses bodice begins. If you go with a mantila I’d do a fingertip length.
The smaller earrings compliment your face shape more.
I like the pearls but can you shorten those a bit as well?

I’d go with the pearls and understated earrings,

Thanks for your replies so far ladies but I’m getting totally confused so I’ve added a poll!
Cheers my dears 🙂

I like either:
- Big earrings with no necklace
- Stud earrings with the pearl necklace
Pearls are almost always safe — and gorgeous! 🙂

I vote no necklace for sure. It takes away from how beautiful your dress is. I would go for some bigger different earrings. Maybe something dangley… with pearls. Beautiful dress btw.

i voted small earings, big necklace, i also think the plain veil is better! The other one takes away from your dress!

I would like to see it with the mantilla veil, pearl stud earrings and a one-strand pearl choker.
