I’m a “mature” (lol-34) second time bride and I didn’t want anything too bridal if that makes any sense. I bought it on Monday but it won’t come in until August. The consultant tried to sell me at $650 sash- um no. any suggestions for accessories?? Veil? I am not a blingy girl at all and the wedding is on December 7th in the CO mountains.

I think a beautiful lace trimmed veil would be gorgeous! It would add a little bit of interest without the bling.

@Penelopeee: No sash/belt. I think that would take away from the stunning silhouette you’ll cut in that absolutely gorgeous gown! And there is nothing wrong with not being a ~blingy~ bride. 🙂
I think an oversized birdcage veil or a stylish blusher would look stunning (minus the sparkle):
Or you could go with a beautifully embroidered long veil (chapel/cathedral):
Since you’re having a winter wedding, definitely get a warm coverup of some sort:
As for jewelry, I think a simple bracelet and earrings would go nicely with your non-bling preference. Or you could have your jewelry be your something borrowed (from your mum, grandmother, family friend, etc):

Your dress is stunning!! I think a simple necklace or some kind of vintage jewelry would look amazing with your dress! I don’t even think you need a veil with the right hair style!

Pretty and classy! It reminds me of this Augusta Jones “Trista” dress.
I would do a bling belt (you can find a better deal than $650 for sure though) with a simple waltz length or chapel length raw edge veil. Maybe put a flower in your hair to soften it up if you want?

if you want a sash, check out something ivory on etsy. i got my sash from her for under $200 and it was completely perfect and FULL of crystals!
