Typically I’m not a fan of sashes, but I think it could really add a nice bit of color and accent to your dress.  I might coordinate it with your necklace (that pendant looks really cute!) by making it a nice dark blue – then all your other colors would really pop.  Or sure, go nuts with a softer color (maybe blush pink) and lotsa beading on it.  There’s almost TOO much to choose from on etsy and such.  And I’m sure it’ll look great with that longer veil you like but…your dress is so classic and simple that I worry a huge long veil would really overwhelm it.  Do you like the look of shorter ones at all or are those just off the table?  I just think a more casual (shorter) veil would fit more with the dress and the wildflowers theme.

Ooooooh, shiny!  That is a really pretty sash – my only concern would be that it might get kind of lost among the lace on your dress.  Like, if your dress was plain satin I think it would stand out very well, but among the white lace I’d worry it wouldn’t be enough contrast.  Of course, this opinion is from a bride who’s putting chiffon flowers on her chiffon dress, so use that grain of salt but hey πŸ˜‰

Ooooh, the second one you posted would definitely go with the simpler theme and look gorgeous! I vote that one over the decorated veil – it leaves you more options since it’s plainer.  You could still do a sash, OR hair flowers OR whatever and it’ll be fine because your veil will just fit in nicely and not have it’s own thing going on to worry about. IMO both of these veils are a much better length for your dress too πŸ™‚  Gahh you’re making me anxious to get my hands on my dress already but I have to wait until February!
