i am 3 months out and need inspiration for jewelery, veil, hair etc.
if you are a Jenna bride, can you show me what you are planning to wear, or what you did wear?
even if Jenna is not your dress, feel free to help me out!
FYI: I am getting married on the beach in Jamaica. here is my dress and shoes. that’s all i got so far!

There are a few posts about this- here’s one that I posted a picture in: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/jenna-maggie-sottero-brides-show-me-your-jewelery
As for a veil, I wore a 3 tiered very simple veil. I liked it because it had volume like the dress but didn’t detract from it. I also tried it on with a beaded cathedral veil that looked really nice too. I actually think that longer veils for beach weddings are kind of fun and make for nice pictures, but then again it might be fussy with the wind/sand, etc. I think that I might have went with the cathedral veil, but my Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) is kind of a klutz so I was certain she would step on it and rip it- isn’t that horrible? I also had a feather hair flower. I think a flower would definitely be nice for a beach wedding. Hopefully that helps!

I think a detailed/chunky/eye-catching necklace would look good with this dress. Veil about the same length as you have in the photo is good. I find it hard to comment on hair without seeing your face.

@Pia2010: thanks, i am more worried about my jewelery for the time being anyway and i wanted to see if anyone would say something about the veil in the picture! that was the only i tried on because the dress consultant just gave it to me to put on and i thought it looked great. i wasn’t really planning on a veil before, but now i think i am!
my hair i will definitely being doing an up do, just have to start looking at pics.
as for jewelery, i agree about the necklace too, so i am glad you said that! i found a necklace, i love but its out of my price range and i would have to rent it. so i am still debating and wanted to see if anyone had other suggestions 🙂

I also picked a 3 tiered viel because it accentuates the shape of the dress! Jewelry also depends on how you are doing your hair…
Personally, I’m wearing my hair up, a low pull back.. and I love my neckline so I’m not doing a necklace but doing ‘big’ dangly diamond/pearl earrings and a tennis bracelet. You have dark hair (judging from the pictures), so be careful as to how eccentric you go on the jewelry (size wise)… because your dark features and the sassy style may be too much… BUT I don’t know what style you are going for…
So how are you doing your hair and what style are going for?
I guess another thing I can say is that the embellishments on the dress are diamond AND pearl, so try to find accessories that also have those two things. 🙂
I hope that helped. (PS This pic is with my hair down..which Im not doing)

You girls look beautiful in this dress! I do not own it yet, but am considering it.
Is it possible to do a sparkly belt? Does anyone have pics of this? thanks!

@FutureLeep9: just saw your reply now! i do have dark hair, but definitely plan to wear it up. at one point i was thinking of adding beading that matches the hips along the neckline. but i decided i want to do a sparkly necklace instead. i found one i like, but will have to rent it, so not sure if i will actually get to try it on with the dress in advance. i never like big, chunky jewelery. the one i found i think is just the right size. and because of the necklace, my earrings are not that big, but just little drops that match the necklace.
thanks for the tips about the 3 tier veil. i will definitely keep that in mind. my dress should be arriving next month, so i cant wait to accessorize!
@Cheesy Potatoes: i honestly cant picture this dress with a sparkly belt! i feel like it has enough at the hips
