I finally got my hands on my dress yesterday – no pics until I lose a few in the waist and the dress is more flattering. I don’t even have a wedding date yet since we’ll be going to city hall and having a small cocktail party with family/close friends sometime in the fall/winter.
Anyway, that being said… although it’ll be fairly casual, I want our pictures to to be elegant and fairly formal. So I’m thinking I might do a sash with my dress… and killer shoes. I’m on a budget – the dress was $75 so I don’t want to go overboard on the accesories.
Any suggestions ladies?

I love your dress. Where in the world did you get it? I have been looking for something similar. I love the nude shoes with it. A simple sash would be pretty. I bought ribbon at Hobby Lobby and will be making a sash for my daughters flower girl dress. They have some gorgeous ribbon and for such a great price. I bought 1 spool of ribbon and was able to make a sash for 3 dresses, it only cost me $4. They have a blush ribbon with roses, it’s gorgeous!

I LOVE that dress. Since it is so very simple, you can probably get away with a decent amount of accessories. If you want the shoes to be a focal point, I’d say go easy on the jewelry – maybe a simple silvery necklace like the model has on?

I wouldn’t do a colored sash – I would do a sash that is embellished, with a pop of color in the shoe, and I personally would have fun with the jewelry. Even with colored shoes, I think that dress allows for some fun.

I wouldn’t go with a sash, if you prefer a less formal look. If you want to add something pretty, I think a blusher veil would be nice. A blusher veil with “birdcage” netting would look very modern. Or a hairpiece, like a crown, or a “vine” would create a more boho vibe. I’ve seen silk flower and feather hairpieces that look pretty “avant garde”. There are lots available, try Etsy etc., and they don’t cost an arm and a leg. Yet they really bring the look of a minimalist dress up a notch. It’s really pretty amazing how you can take a dress and totally change the look with the accessories.
