Hi, bees. I could really use some help deciding on accessories/hairstyle for my dress. I know I want to wear my hair up so I’ve been thinking some kind of loose/messy chignon and I found a pair of chandelier earrings I LOVE. But I can’t decide if I should wear a necklace too? And for hair accessories I’m conflicted on a sparkly headband or just a comb in the back/near the veil. Obviously since the corset is beaded, I don’t want to be over the top but I’m having a hard time trying to pull it all together. HELP! Any thoughts or suggestions would be so helpful!

lanikai26 : now it’s showing up! You look great in your dress:-)
I would do the chandelier earrings and the sparkly comb in the back and not do a necklace, just to keep focus on the dress and the accents of sparkle.

I like your hair idea. If you have chandelier earrings, I’d skip the necklace & do a small blingy comb in your hair. Keep accessories simple since the bodice is already so blingy.

lanikai26 : I fully agree with BalletParker :
I would definitely skip the necklace (the earrings will be enough and it would be a shame to detract from the amazing neckline and top half of your dress) and (for similar reasons) would do a hair comb towards the back or side of your hair.
If you feel like that’s not enough, you could try a simple bracelet on your right arm.
You look gorgeous in your dress!

This is exactly what I have been thinking about! My gown is very embellished above the waist like yours. I’m still floating ideas in my head, but:
If I wear my hair up – I am planning on wearing earings, a hair piece in the back by the veil, and maybe a simple bracelet. If I end up wearing my hair down, I think I will skip the earings and wear a simple pearl necklace with no bracelet.
Your dress is fabulous! Show us pics if you play dress up with the accessories 🙂

Thanks everyone, for your comments and support! It sounds like a lot of agreement that I should go with a comb in the back. That was my instinct but it’s so nice to have other input! So I had found a comb on Etsy that I fell in love with but I waited too long and it sold. So now I’m having a hard time finding anything else I like
A couple of ideas I do like so far
This one, I’d wear around the back of my head if that makes sense?
Or these? Or keep looking?
