I’ve been engaged since October 2012 and the one thing I’ve dragged my feet on was the darn dress! I just didn’t want to spend $500 or more on a dress I only will wear once. Furthermore, most traditional wedding dresses aren’t my style and our wedding is outdoors and casual, so everything seemed to dressy. I ordered one from David’s Bridal and one from Nordstrom. They were OK but then I found this beauty, BHLDN Niceties dress.
After I bought it it went on sale so they credited me the difference, making it very affordable under $300! I just adore it. It is simple and a little bohemian/hippie-ish which is nice and feels like me. I also think it will still feel bridal and nice, too. I will post pics of me in it eventually!
I’m working on accessorizing it with a pretty hair clip and maybe a sparkly sash instead of the plain one it comes with. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about jewelry yet. I’m open to suggestions if anyone has any 🙂

I LOVE that dress. If I didn’t love mine too, I would be having some serious dress envy. In fact, I want both. (I’ve scrolled up and down several times writing this short post just to look at it again.)

That dress is gorgeous!
I would look at Etsy for a statement necklace. I think that you could pull off something bold with this dress since it is a more simple style.
You also mentioned a sparkly sash. If you do the sparkly sash, I would maybe do a simpler necklace. Or skip the necklace all together and do some chandelier earrings and a pretty bracelet. That way the sash and necklace won’t be competing. And you would have a really cool bohemian-glam look happening!

Simply beautiful! A statement necklace kind of like what the model is wearing goes fantastic with this dress.

I love that dress! I always look at it when I’m on the bhldn website. It’s going to look amazing with a few simple accessories….I like the idea of the sparkly sash 🙂
