So many gorgeous options, it all depends what look you’re going for.


A little lace jacket would be very pretty

Or you could go for something more dramatic


A sash is another good option

Lace gloves could look very cool

Or a pretty headpiece



It depends on what you mean by vintage as well – are you looking for pretty feminine lacy toe vintage or 50s bombshell for example. Either one could work.

@meggs66:  Beautiful dress and you look fantastic. I think you can merge the two looks with your accessories. Why not try a mantilla veil? Or a chapel/cathedral veil with lace only along the back (so that it adds some detail to the train)?



If not a lace veil, what about a beaded/embroidered one to evoke a vintage feel?


I’ve also recently fallen for blushers. So, you might like those (and you can play with textural details): 


Or you can go for an art deco look and try a cool beaded/lace Juliet cap:

Love the first lace bolero and the hair piece. If you wanna sash I think a thinner one with beading like the hairpiece would be amazing 🙂

Something along the lines of that first lace bolero would be gorgeous, and then you could remove it for the reception. I also love lace-trim or lace applique veils with satin gowns, like the one below. Or you could do very old Hollywood waves and a jewelled headpiece.

Also, go super vintage with your makeup – red lipstick, liquid liner.
