I’m totally lost when it comes to what I should do for jewelry/veil/headpiece for this dress. I don’t know if I should wear earrings, necklace, veil or headpiece. And, if I do any of these what length? Obviously I need help! I don’t think this was a popular dress for the 2010 season so I haven’t had much luck finding how others accesorized this dress.
Thanks in advance for your help! In this picture I have a finger length veil, but I’m open to anything!

What a pretty dress! Does the dress have a train? I think that when a dress doesnt have a very long train, buying a longer veil creates a train and looks really pretty. SInce your gown has a lot of beaded detail at the top, I dont think you would need a necklace (at least not a very elaborate one). I think drop earrings would look great with this gown. This is all just my opinion though…very subjective lol. I would look around the internet at similar style gowns and see how other girls accesorized. THats what i did for my dress : )

This dress is very beautiful; you say it may not be a part of 2010 fashion, but I don’t see why not! Shame! 🙂
The veil length is depending on how you want to represent the gown. The longer the veil, the more formal it is. The shorter the veil, its still formal, but a little more casual.
I agree with @pvaultingirl – because of the beading on the bodice, you do want a necklage that droops a little, but nothing elaborate. Simple tear drop (with tear drop) earrings will be great. Same with the bracelet – too much bling with this “beautiful blingy dress” may be too much.
Though, if you’re a bride that likes to stand out “shine”, then you would want to add all those things! lol
Wish you luck and let us know what you pick!!

Finger length veil is beautiful with your dress!! I would also suggest drop earrings and a simple (non elaborate) necklace, since the top is beautifully beaded and blingy!

Veil: I think the veil length you have in the photo is a good choice.
Earrings: Are you going to tie your hair up?
If no -> simple white or silver crystal studs; If yes -> drop earrings like this:
Necklace: I think you have a great neck, so I think it will be good to wear a statement necklace and then a simple bracelet (if you want). Just find something all match together in terms of style and colour.
Headpiece: If you have very bling bling necklace, then keep your headpiece very simple… I don’t like putting a flower, but just a personal taste after all.
Hope it helps.

Thanks everyone! Those are great suggestions.
@big_monchhichi: I LOOOOOOOVE those earrings! Where did you find those? I will either wear my hair up in a low, loose bun/twist or half up with lots of loose curls.
Here is a pic of what I’m thinking for hair:

@ejs1228: Hihi, I saw those earrings from ebay (http://cgi.ebay.ca/Bridal-Swarovski-Crystal-chandelier-Earring-11A023-/370456263216?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item5640e9fa30)
Actually I am going to buy a necklace from this buyer and I saw this earrings before… so I thought it would be great with your gown. I think your look can be:
1. Earrings can be something shiny to echo with the beads of your gown… something simple, elegant yet can catch attention (crystals are better than rhinestones I think; and silver/ clear crystals are better than color gemstone-> more classy)
2. Since your hair is going to be a bun plus the bottom of your dress is wide, long (but not too bulk or wide) can make you look slimmer and taller.
1 more thing, when I first looked at your photo, the first thing that drew my attention is certainly your neck, you really make me jealous LOL… so if an appropriate accessory is used around your neck/ head, definitely YOU WILL BE THE MOST FAB GODDESS in the ceremony!
Hope it helps.
