I’ve just ordered my dress and now I have to find accesories. It’s Justin Alexander Signature 9710 plus a top made from the same venetain lace, with sleeves.
I’m dreaming about a retro/ vintage style. Could you help me with a veil, flowers, jewellery, headpiece, hairstyle etc.?
P.S Please forgive me my poor english 🙂

For veil, I’m thinking an elbow length veil, something fairly simple, maybe with a raw edge. Since you’re going with sleeves, I would keep your jewelry to a minimum – probably just some simple earrings, and I would also skip the headpiece (maybe a headband if you wanted). Maybe a bracelet to boot if you desire!

Veneziana: That sounds gorgeous! I’m also looking at the same gown, and have been admiring it online. May I ask how much you paid for this dress? Please keep us updated with pictures, when you can. 🙂

Thank You Bees for your sugestions! Now I’m thinking about statement, chandelier earrings and a long veil, but only for a church ceremony.
@vintagebride143: I’m so happy that I found a bride, who is considering the same gown! I’m totally in love with this gown, and I must say that in reality it’s far more amazing than in photos! Have you seen this gown in reality?
I’m from Poland, so the price on tag was 9980 PLN which is about 3200 USD, but I’ve got a discount and I’m paying 7700 PLN, so about 2500 USD with alterations. It’s totally worth this price, because this venetian lace is gorgeous and one of a kind.
I have my first fitting on May and can’t wait!
