Hi! 🙂 I love your dress! Lovely choice.

If you’re petite too many accessories may overwhelm. Gloves, a 3-layer veil, headpiece and additional beading may be a bit of overkill – and you haven’t even gotten to jewelry yet! Decide which part of you you’d like to highlight and focus your efforts there, and don’t forget to take your cues from the season you’re getting married e.g. a winter wedding may necessitate gloves whereas a summer wedding might be best complemented by a pretty floral headpiece and light veil.

I agree. I had a bride once who had a gorgeous, but elaborate dress! I saw it and it was like, woah, that’s awesome! Then, she let her long hair down, added LARGE statement Earrings, necklace, AND bracelet…. Added a huge thick veil and tiara. Oy vey, it was too much!

When we did an after wedding shoot, she pulled back her hair, put on a pair of earrings and called it good. She was like, “I didn’t realize how much I had on!”

Your dress is gorgeous! But, it’s got a lot going on. Like said above, I would go with the “less is more” approach. I would most likely do a pair of earrings and a cathedral veil with blusher.

No gloves.

You have a lot going on with your dress, so you’ll need to pick what you add carefully.
