MeredithRose:  Such a beautiful dress! It’s so intricate and beautiful on it’s own that it doesn’t really need much. I think that earrings would look beautiful and maybe a bracelet, but that’s it. Do you plan on wearing a headpiece and/or veil?

MeredithRose:  Oh, that dress is gorgeous!!!

What does your hair look like?

What about no veil, but instead a slightly intricate braided hairstyle with some flower incorporated into it? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/52/f3/e0/52f3e0f15d30e497f678da8f0471f158.jpg

Or what about a headpiece like this? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/63/0a/47/630a474e268f7902ccdf244dd2cb2b7d.jpg

MeredithRose:  That’s a beautiful dress.  I would probably skip a veil so you don’t cover up the detailing on the back.  Some sort of hair comb or hairpiece would look really pretty–BHLDN has a bunch that would look great.  I agree that earrings and maybe a bracelet are all you need as far as jewelry.

Hi MeredithRose – I actually bought the same wedding dress for my outdoor wedding coming up in July! πŸ™‚ Great taste! I am planning on buying sparkly earrings like the J.Crew ones that Illussier posted. I haven’t bought any yet. I am not sure about a bracelet since I am worried it could get caught on the fabric/beading of the dress. I will be wearing a very simple long veil for the ceremony and then taking it off for the reception so you can see the back detail. I agree with your point about not having the train on the dress and the veil helps to add to the wedding look πŸ™‚ 

Also, since our ceremony is outside, I have purchased gold badgley mischka wedges. See link: http://www.badgleymischka.com/HEDY-II

Excited to hear what you find! Thanks!

Hi ladies! That dress is insanely beautiful. I love the simple cap veil that was sugessted above, with a simple pendant necklace and bracelet. 

I’ve just fallen head over heels with the dress, and have my eye out for a 4, 6, or 8. If either of you decide to sell the dress after your wedding and have one of those sizes, I would certainly be happy to purchase πŸ™‚
