I wouldn’t add another layer to that dress. It is so pretty. but accessorize the crap out of it.

Now you say your Fiance doesn’t like Belts….how does he feel about SASHES?

When it’s on you he really shouldn’t say he doesn’t like sashes. He won’t even notice!!!! 🙂

Hmm, so I kind of ignore guys when they say stuff like “I don’t like belts!” because I feel like they don’t really know what they’re talking about.  Like when my fiance tells me he likes my “no-makeup” look – meanwhile, I’m wearing foundation, concealer, highlighter, blusher, mascara etc etc etc…

ANYWAY

This is my dress (yay!) and I going to cover up the waist seam; I’m going for a plain ivory silk sash, but I have considered using a piece of antique beaded lace?  Maybe?  I’m starting to get the feeling that it’s TOO plain but then, that’s what I love about it.  So.  I am also going to see if they can add covered buttons to the back to cover the zip.

If your necklace is pretty big, then maybe just a brooch or something subtle at the waist will do, like PP suggested.

Oooooooh, such a classic dress means you can GO FOR IT with hair and accessories!  I love the idea of a long, classy necklace or jewelry set.  But it’s really a gorgeous dress, even with just a set of pearl studs and a lovely updo you’d be the picture of elegance!  You don’t need to add anything to the dress, and I think another layer of tulle or whatever might cheapen it, so I’d play around with hair and accessories first.

That is such a gorgeous dress! I agree with Foolsintherain, I think a bolero would be perfect. Not really a fan of the tulle idea, either.

Actually, let me just +1 everything she had to say. I think she hit the nail on the head.
