Hmmm.  Maybe long gold and crystal earrings?  I’d say no necklace, because of how decorative the bodice is, you don’t want to over-do it.  And maybe a tennis bracelet.  Are you wearing a veil?

I would go with long earrings as well. Whatever the stones/beading on your dress are. It’s a very beautiful dress πŸ™‚ There is a lot going on though, so overall I’d keep it simple with just one or two pieces.

Gorgeous dress! I would keep the accessories simple, as well.  I don’t even know that I’d go for long earings, since the dress is so ornate and speaks for itself.  I do agree with a sparkly but simple bracelet.  I bet you could wear your hair down if you want as well.

I don’t know if or what type of veil you are planning on, but nothing became obvious to me at first glance.  I’d be interested to hear what you are thinking on that front… as my dress has some similar elements and I’ve been struggling with the same question.

Slightly off topic, but I’m a little confused as to why they made the model’s skin so shiny and alien?  She shows the dress off well, but you almost have to block her out to figure out what to wear with the dress!

I have to agree with everyone else.  I would stick to diamond/pearl stud earrings and simple pearl/diamond bracelet.  I am not sure what dominates the beading on the bodice of your dress, but coordinate appropriately.

Good Luck!

The bottom of your dress is so soft and romantic that I think wearing your hair down (especially in loose, soft curls) would be totally appropriate. I also agree with the other posters who said that your bodice is ornate enough that you don’t need a necklace, and if you do want one, a simple diamond pendant (on a gold chain, if you have one, to match the gold tone of the dress) would be lovely.

As far as earrings, a few favorites of mine are: 

http://www.annabellagio.com/product/014054.shtml (these little flowers would give just a hint of sparkle and might match the detailing on your gown – it’s hard to tell)

http://www.annabellagio.com/product/016711.shtml (these are my favorites. they’d show up beautifully under your hair, though they might be too structured for such a romantic gown)

http://www.annabellagio.com/product/019276.shtml (these also come in gold, and they have a bit more flow to complement your gown, but still have lots of drama)

http://www.carolee.com/product/earrings/bridal/briolette+drop.do (these are more delicate, if you want something less dramatic)

Sorry if that’s a lot of info! I hope you find something you like!

If you wear your hair down then I say just long earrings and a bracelet, but probably no necklace.  Usually look at what the model is wearing, she doesn’t have a necklace probably so it won’t compete with the detail on the dress.

i think pearls would be stunning with this dress. I agree with everyone else… go easy on the accessories. so maybe just a simple pair of pearl stud earrings, or a pearl bracelet, or maybe even a pearl necklace would be nice (just don’t do all 3).

I think it’s fine if you want to go with white gold (or a silver finish) instead of yellow gold for your ensemble. I think it will look beautiful no matter what, as long as you keep in consistent. πŸ™‚

The delicate trim on your veil will certainly be gorgeous. I’m sure it will be beautiful. πŸ™‚
