That’s an AMAZING dress and I would be careful that your jewels do not interfere with it.  Also depends on what you are doing with your hair?

Your dress is beautiful.  How formal is your wedding, because that will make a difference in the accessories you choose. I think flowers or a jeweled brooch would be lovely in your hair.  I would also probably skip a necklace if you feel the dress accentuates your breast, because the necklace would draw the eye even more to that area.  I’d go with some really great earrings and a bracelet.

@lilkimmie: Do you mind giving us more info on your hair style, location of the venue? These need to be considered also.

@lilkimmie: Sorry for replying to you late. Let me see…

From the information you gave, I think a bracelet + earrings will be great. The main focus of your dress is the beading of the bust part, so if you get a necklace with too much details, your dress won’t be the main focus anymore.

Unless you have a particular kind of stones you like, or else crystals and rhinestones are always good choices.

Given your hairstyle plus your venue is quite large, I can vision you in chandelier earrings (something long). Something too small… people won’t be able to see from a distance. 

 

For bracelet, if you choose to have crystal earrings, then you can choose to have crystal bracelet to match with the earrings. 

For hair, are you going to have any veils? If yes, what length? Keep it simple, maybe just a small blingy thing.

@lilkimmie: For your information, the first pair is from ebay and the second pair is from etsy. Just some ideas for you.

I also thought about pearls for you… but I somehow have a feeling that pearls are good matches with your dress… i just have that feeling. I think pearls shine less. If you have a big venue, pearls may not stand out as much as crystals / rhinestones.

once you know what you are going to have, then you can start to think about hair pieces 🙂

definitely a beautiful dress! i think you could pull off some extra bling if you wanted. i think you could probably do it a couple ways so it wouldnt be so over whelming…

you could do the hair accessories/necklace/bracelet/& earrings if you kept it simple & small. i think this would be the best way to keep the focus on the dress. (p.s. dangly earrings i think would look best since you’re wearing you’re hair up)

if you were wanting to have more statement jewelry…if you wanted bold earrings, i think you could get away with a few things in your hair but i’d forego the necklace & get a nice bracelet.

or i think if you wanted a bold necklace…i’d still wear dangly earrings just very simple ones & minimal hair accs.

lol idk im kinda partial to doing everything just keeping it simple–but dressing up the earrings a bit more than the rest (: good luck! im sure whatever you pick out will be beautiful!

I think your dress is amazing beautiful!!! I think a pair of chandelier earrings crystal and a bracelet is all you need!! You should definitely put a little something in your hair! I say get the head piece first then work on jewelry!! Its your wedding day when else do you get to do yourself up like that?

Beautiful dress! Because of the embellishment at the top, I would abstain from wearing a necklace. You want YOU to be the center of attention, not your sparkly accessories!

I would go easy with the jewelry. If you wear your hair back, a simple chiffon flower would be lovely. Something like this:

Or you could do something smaller, like this:

If you do wear a flower in your hair, go for simple earrings like pearl or diamond studs. If you don’t wear a hair accessory, you can do bolder/larger earrings. Like I said before, make sure YOU are the focus rather than your baubles – except for your new wedding band, of course!

Best wishes!
