I dont think I woujld change the dress. Maybe just do a nice statement necklace (maybe in one of your colors) and bracelet and small dainty earrings

I think the shape is pretty modern. Maybe a statement necklace? I don’t think the dress would look out of place at your venues at all.

If yours is not going to have the satin sash will it have something else?

I would definately leave the dress as is. It is gergeous!

@lefeymw: I agree with you–a statement necklace would look awesome with this and it is defintiely a modern thing to do now! Plus I love the way that makes the whole ensemble look!

I definitely agree that a sculptural statement necklace would be the way to go.  What are your colors?

I think we are so lucky to live in a time where vintage has become modern in a sense.  Love the advice about a colorful statement necklace, but at the same time I don’t think you need it (something simply will do too). 

But rock that dress the way it is.  You fell in love with it for a reason. And I don’t think it will look out of place or out of date.

Maybe something like this would give a nod to the elegance and traditional lace, but the style is modern. Although its probably a touch long, so you could ask her to make it without the last row.

I love the idea of a statement necklace with this dress!! It’s so beautiful on its own I wouldn’t do anything to change it!
