I found my dress! I wasn’t even going to try it on, but my friend liked it so I did. It wasn’t love at first sight, but the more I looked at pictures of myself this is the dress I always came back to! 🙂 It’s one of the only things I’ve ever worn that almost makes me feel “normal” (not plus sized!)
Any advice for what kind of jewelry to wear? I have the option of my Grandmother’s pearls, but I would need some kind of extender because they are too small to go around my neck 🙁
I’m also open to buying any type of necklace from anywhere.
My big question is what color should my veil and flower girl dresses be? My dress is “soft white” from David’s Bridal. . . darker than white, but much lighter than ivory. The first flower girl dresses I picked out were ivory and looked much too dark. But white looks much too “white”. I’m starting to regret picking out the “soft white”. . . it’s too hard to match! The only place I can find “soft white” is David’s, but they only have 2 flower girl dresses to choose from!

Beautiful dress! It looks great on you! I think it’s more important for your veil to match perfectly. The little girls will not be next to your dress most of the day so the color can be a little off. Do some searching on the internet and I’m sure you’ll find lots of options!

I wouldn’t worry too much about matching the tones of white. We’re actually going with color, so that won’t be so matching. And I think honestly, everyone will be focusing on you so much, they won’t have any thoughts crossing their mind about the matchingness. (And that dress looks great on you by the way. Super flattering!)
As far as necklaces, I think pearls would look nice…is it possible to get an extender? Or, maybe you could find a nice gemstone necklace, or a simple chain with a stone at the end? I think the nice thing about your dress is that it’s not SO in one specific direction, you have a lot of versitilty in what accessories you use.

i would focus on matching the veil…have you thought about doing your flower girl’s dress in one of your wedding colors? No worrying about matching whites there…and yes, a simple strand of pearls would look beautiful with that dress. So pretty!

Pale Pink or Purple for the flower girl’s dress?
