@Adams_bee:  Very pretty! I like the hair option #2 (updo, to show off the dress better). What sort of accessories are you wanting to add? Like a sash? Belt? Hair clips? Jewelry?

@Adams_bee:  Being the dress is so detailed, I think a pair of simple diamond/similar earrings would look nice. Bracelet is a nice thought, but with all the detailing on the gown, plus your ring, and the earrings, a bracelet might be considered a bit much, but that’s just my opinion. πŸ™‚

@Adams_bee:  Those are pretty. Have you considered having any jewelry that would go with your wedding colors? IE blue sapphire earrings to compliment the blue flowers in a bouquet, for instance?

@Adams_bee:  What I had in mind was something like one of these:

Basically something fairly simple, as to not compete with the dress, but still lovely (and not long and dangly) πŸ™‚

LOVE your dress… absolutely GORGEOUS

It has a lot going on with the flowers and the one shoulder… so I think that less is more is the way to go here.

So out of the options for hair, I’d choose either # 2 or # 3

# 3 is nice because you could tie in the element of the flowers in your dress… and despite it being long, it is pulled back and away from the front of your dress… so doesn’t compete with the one-shoulder feature

# 2 is great too… and you could always incorporate the flowers into that

With the neckline.  I don’t think I’d do a necklace (it would compete)

But earrings are a MUST DO

I enlarged the shoulder detail, and I notice there is some “sparkle” in there… so maybe repeat that in the earrings (classic… could be studs or dangles… the teardrops you posted in Reply # 5 above would probably be a good choice)

As for the cuff bracelet.  Not sure how I feel about that… but then again in that category there are tons of choices… real cuffs or fooler cuffs (a grouping of bracelets when worn together look like a cuff… I did that for my own Wedding using sea-pearls which were a theme for me… cuff, earrings, drop pendant, and a RHR)

Have you thought about just a classic / dainty ladies watch ?

Again less is more… so it wouldn’t necessarily compete with everything else going on.

Hope this helps,

@Adams_bee:  I can understand the studs not being your style. Some people prefer heels, others like flats. I think the lavender dangly ones you posted are pretty as well, just didn’t see them til now. The idea for the simple earrings was to compliment the beautiful dress and its details, like the flowers. Otherwise people may end up staring at the earrings, and not the dress. πŸ˜€

@Adams_bee:  I’d go for option D (obviously lol). If you want to draw more attention ‘upwards’, maybe find a flower or 2 that matches whats on your dress, and put it in your hair?
