I don’t have anything to add other than your dress is drop-dead gorgeous and to pretty please add pics from your wedding day so we can see how everything turned out! 😀

Such a pretty dress and OMG how stunning are you? I agree with the posters who suggest a bold red lip, black birdcage veil and earrings although I’m not sure they should any bling as they might be too distracting. Either black drop earrings or simple studs me thinks. No belt as that becomes a bit much in my view. What colour are your bridesmaids in? A red touch to your birdcage might work too if that wouldn’t clash too much with your colour scheme.

I agree, you are stunning! I think the birdcage veil would add a dramatic effect, especially if you are doing black pearls. I would wear a shorter necklace, not a long chain.

If you are doing the flower crown I would wear a choker. 


What does the back look like?

I’m late to this but I just wanted to add to the chorus  of praise  AND to say,  please don’t do flower crowns or belts or other pretty-pretty things that are not in keeping  with that  black  elegance.

That black  drop  veil a bee posted is gorgeous and you would have  no problem keeping  it attached to your short hair . I think birdcages are best with tea length  and the Vera Wang is a bit busy for your look .

 Yes red lipstick as shown and all the rest of your make upas shown  too, though the very heavy brow look will date you in future  , if you care.  Slender dangly  earrings and your own stunning  beauty will complete the look !

Ah so you decided to go with the black gown! I really loved them bothlaughing

Have you considered a black birdcage veil or bold black facinator? For example peacock feathers etc I think that would look very sleek. Keep the bold red lip, and possibly go for a cat eye style of eye makeup.
