I am debating whether or not my ideas for accessories is going overboard or not…
This is my dress…
I really want to do a statement necklace. I am going to make my own and it’s going to be dark purples and ivory and I want it to look like this from etsy.com…
I also really want to do some sort of fascinator in my hair, something like this…
and my veil is a birdcage veil. Do you think this is going overboard? My dress is simple so I think I can def pull off the necklace but I am worried that all of it together will be too much. WHat do you think?

I think, since your dress has that big flower detail at the waist, you should skip the necklace. It’s so much going onin the empire waist/neck region, especially if you’re doing both a headpiece and a veil. The dress may be “simple” compared to some dresses, but it’s still a voluminous ballgown with floral detail (not so simple really)

Your dress is simple enough that everything looks great with it. It doesn’t overwhelm and makes a good statement. I love it!

it’s a bow, not a floral detail but I totally get what you are saying! Thanks!
Keep the suggestions coming guys!!

I think all of your planned accessories are awesome. Your dress is relatively simple, so why not dress it up with the extras? That is what I did–I had a pretty simple dress, but a large fascinator and a big, colorful necklace.

if you are voting no, please tell me what you dont like or what you would change.
What do you think about doing a simple necklace with the fascinator and veil for the ceremony and then removing the veil and only using the fascinator and adding the statement necklace for the reception?

Because the dress is simple [lacking bling], you can definitely add a statement necklace and a fascinator. However I’m not crazy about this particular necklace, so I didnt vote

Didn’t Coco Chanel say you should always take off the last accessory you put on?
In the interest of not over doing it, I like the idea of leaving off the necklace for the ceremony and formal pictures and then removing the veil and adding the necklace for the wedding.
A huge statement necklace will work with the celebratory theme of the reception. Then you can have everything you want but spread out instead of everything at once. Plus, people love to change into new dresses and stuff for the reception, this can be your version!

your dress seems on the simple (in terms of pattern/color, and no rhinestones, sparkles), a statement necklace will “pop”
i love that necklace
rosette headpiece – maybe put it more toward the back and not so much in the front so it won’t be clashing (or too much flowers/rosetts) against the beautiful necklace

i think the necklace is too big. everything else is fine. just get a simpler necklace like a strand of pearls

I wouldn’t do the veil and the necklace combination. Maybe do the veil for the ceremony, and then put on the necklace for the reception. It will kind of switch things up, and give you a different look for your pictures at each venue!

here are alternatives:
(1) buy that necklace… (now i want one too!!) you can wear that necklace for other occassions like other ppl’s wedding or dinner party since it has “gray”
(2) buy a necklace that has sparkle and wear that instead (but put a rhinestone pin in your rosette headband/veil) so the top part will pop

I don’t think you need a necklace at all! It is so beautiful on it’s on and i love having the attention on the collar bone. I think it is very pretty. I like the hair accessory. I would go with that and some earrings. Maybe you could wear the necklace for the reception or if you change into a different dress for the send off.
