Hi Bees! It’s been awhile since I posted. Last year I got a wedding dress, which I immediately had regret over. After months of trying to make myself love the dress, I decided to cut my losses and find a new one. Last night I finally did it! I’ve never felt more beautiful or bridal. I can’t wait for my June elopement! My question is how would you accessorize?
I’ve already picked out a crown of pearls and starfish (for my beachy theme). I was thinking maybe a gold arm cuff as well. Any other suggestions?
also it’s the Campbell skirt/top from BHLDN’s spring 2019 line

Are you wearing a veil? Honestly I think with your lovely ink work and your pearl headband you’re good to go, the gold cuff would be cute too! Really depends on the vibe! I am quite plain and I think your dress has beautiful detail so I would want the eye drawn to that!
You look gorgeous btw!

jemmlove12 : thank you!! I probably won’t do a veil. I’m thinking of braiding my hair half back and keeping the rest down then putting this crown over it.
I do think I want there to be more focus on the dress than extra so I’m leaning towards keeping it simple. I’m just glad I finally found a dress I want to get married in!

I agree on keeping it simple and letting your ink shine! It looks like a really beautiful piece. How would you style the cuff? I’d be worried it would take away from the artwork but it could also highlight it beautifully.
LOVE that pearl and starfish crown.
You’re gonna look like a mermaid princess!

misty2007 : thank you!!! I was thinking of having the cuff on my non-tattooed arm, since I definitely don’t want to take away from the flowers!
mermaid is exactly the look I was going for! I can’t even tell you guys how happy I am. It’s heen a year of feeling iffy about the ceremony because I wasn’t comfortable with my dress/look. Now I’m counting down the days to wearing it and marrying the love of my life!

Oh wow! I don’t usually care for 2 piece bridal looks but the wavy lines at the waist are stunning! and it looks amazing on you!
I’d go minimal on the accessories, I think it could veer into more costume territory easily rather than bridal.

I would definitely go with the gold cuff on the non tattooed arm and keep the rest simple! That dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you and crown will pull it all together.

I love your dress. I think what you’ve suggest would be perfect.

Love the head piece idea. Could you maybe have a sea themed bracelet , rather than a plain cuff?
You look great btw!
