    Gorgeous dress!! 

    I didn’t vote because you can only pick one option and I like a few of them (perhaps make it so we can choose more than one?), but I would vote

    single pearl strand

    a flower in your hair

    funky shoes! I’d get shoes that match your colour theme πŸ™‚

    @inexplicablecomfort: Me too! I don’t know why more dresses don’t come with pockets. There’s certainly room. I would love to be able to walk around with both hands free and not worry about who to ask to hold my chapstick. πŸ™‚ Is it easy to add pockets? I can’t wait to see the final product.

    2bMrsG wore that dress, you should check out her pics! She wore red heels, pearls and a flower in her hair and I think she looked fab!

    Super cute dress! I love it!

    I think the necklace/hairpiece etc. all has to work together, so it’s hard to vote for any of them individually. I love the idea of a double strand of pearls w/ side brooch, but if you did that, since your dress already has some embellishment on the bust I would go simple with the hairpiece and/or earrings unless you have fairly strong features.

    Overall, I’d say just think for a bit about the vibe you want for your wedding (modern and funky? vintage inspired? is there a specific era you’re drawn to?) and use those preferences to inform your decision making. Also, you could always do a birdcage for the ceremony and swap it out for a flower at the reception if you can’t make up your mind!

    I voted for single strand of pearls, hair clip/flower, and neutral shoes.  But I’m totally biased because I had a short dress and accessorized it that way.  πŸ˜‰  I really wanted a color shoe, but couldn’t find quite the right ones.  I ended up with ivory patent leather peep toes, and silver mini wedge/flats for later in the day.  Your dress looks so great on you.  And I love the idea of adding pockets!  I’m sure however you accessorize it’ll look awesome!

    @inexplicablecomfort: Yeah, I love her look! I’m also wearing an ivory tea length dress, but it’s a different style. I still haven’t decided on how I’m going to accessorize it- except for the shoes. I strassed a pair of heels with cobalt crystals and I’m definitely going to be showing them off! πŸ˜‰
