love the dress.  i actually probably will be getting wedding jewelry from Forever21.  they have so many pieces that look pretty good for the price.  i’ve never been a big wearer of jewelry and can’t fathom spending a ton on stuff i’ll wear for a day.

I think that a belt with flowers would be nice for that dress. Not to blingy and you can add color or not either way I think is pretty.

Also I think you could do a veil with that dress maybe not as elaborate but here are some IMO that would look good with that dress.

Hope this helps good luck!

Great choice! I also have this dress in blush πŸ™‚

Like you, I have been wondering what accessories to wear/ what colours are going to match the blush etc…

I have decided to wear a beaded/ rhinestone belt which I got from etsy.com (they photoshoped a few belts so I had a bit of an idea of what it would look like), and a pair of stunning earings http://www.samanthawills.com.au/detail/la-marixe-earrings 

Also agree with Klein2bReidy, a nice belt with flowers would look amazing.

You could definatly wear a veil (perhaps not stark white, maybe ivory or an off white colour).

If you go to the link below and browse through the photographs there are a few photos of the dress worn a few different ways by a model.

Ooh, this is my dress! I’m getting it in ivory.

I’m going to just have a plain ivory sash, in silk – ie the same colour, but a different texture.

I think the veil you’re thinking of will work really well – the tulle will blend in with the tulle of the dress’s top layers, and the lace will add a nice detail.

My veil is a bit of a statement in that it’s a floor-length silk chiffon veil by Belle and Bunty.  Since it’s chiffon, not tulle, as is therefore not transparent, it’s quite a big part of the overall look.

I am completely undecided about jewellery!  If I had £3K to spend on earrings, I think I’d just get a pair of Tiffany Legacy diamond earrings and be done with it.  Alas…

Pretty! I would pair it with a statement necklace and a hair piece.
