Didn’t 12-5-14 already happen? I assume you mean 2015? A multicolored statement necklace could be fun, maybe with a bracelet and small earrings. Are you doing a veil? A blusher could be cute

Where is your wedding/what’s the theme? And how are you planning on doing your hair? Do you want to be competely non-traditional (no veil, nothing overly bridal) or would you prefer more traditional accessories?

love the dress!  great blue for you! yay december weddings! (mine is 12/18/15)

so, not really knowing your style/theme/vision, i have the following 2 ideas:

1. the non-traditional traditional

lovely blue crystal diadem/tiara

since the headpiece is more dramatic, i would pair just small sparkly studs in clear

and this bracelet:

but no necklace.  highlight the heeeeell out of your collar bones and lovely shoulders and just be regal. 

OR

non-traditional, funky style:

this feathery headpiece to-be (it needs to be attached to a headband, or comb, but you could add a birdcage to it as well.  i would personally just do it as a headband)

one of these pashminas:

and a multi-strand aurora borealis necklace.  really, no matter what i say, i want you to wear aurora borealis beads.  they would look soooooo amazing, regardless of the headpiece.

indianaprincess:  yay!  since you said quirky vintage and half up hair, something like this comb https://www.etsy.com/listing/221195035/vintage-aurora-borealis-rhinestone-and?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=aurora%20borealis%20hair&ref=sr_gallery_37

or this branchy-comb  https://www.etsy.com/listing/108320628/rhinestone-aurora-borealis-hair-comb?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=aurora%20borealis%20hair&ref=sr_gallery_7 could look really lovely.

and if you do decide to go with a veil, think about a light blue one:  (this one is a circle, but could be put on a comb pretty easily) https://www.etsy.com/listing/231823398/blue-cathedral-wedding-veil-with-blusher?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=blue%20wedding%20veil&ref=sr_gallery_3

 

and, because i can’t think quirky-vintage-december without a wrap:

this robe as a jacket, because yes:

or this beaded capelet (black, but gorg)

https://www.etsy.com/listing/224154473/beaded-capelet?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=beaded%20capelet&ref=sr_gallery_10

or this swan lake chiffon number
