First off, the dress is gorgeous on you!

I think you should stick with earrings and maybe a bracelet.  I think a necklace would be too much and would distract from the dress.

I would say simple earrings and a simple bracelet since your dress has so many beautiful details! Also a fairly simple veil

I agree, earrings + bracelet. I would look for something to match with the level of sparkliness in the dress detail like silver with rhinestones for the earrings, maybe something a little simpler for the bracelet. Lovely!

I’m so happy you picked a dress! It looks great on you! ^_^

If you’re going to wear your hair up, you could wear some pearl earrings, maybe!



And I probably wouldn’t wear a bracelet or a necklace, but that’s just me!

And maybe something like this is your hair:

It’s hard to say without seeing:

a) your neck

b) the shape of your face

Anyway, there are two trends… one is the “too simple” trend, ie people claim that “less is more” — oftentimes this trend doesn’t work on anybody, it can make you look frumpy and spoil the dress. The other trend is the “accessorized” trend, ie people claim that accessories should be enough to be seeing and balance the dress. This doesn’t work if you don’t have the personality to wear that stuff (most people don’t have it).

Your dress however is NOT that detailed. In order not to spoil it (and its beauty) you should stay away from “simple bridal jewelry”. Choose one complicated (big, blingy) item and stick with it.

I disagree with the idea that a necklace would distract from the dress, particularly since it’s strapless. Try on a few styles of necklaces, and wear a strapless top under your cardigan if you go to a jewlery store to try on necklaces. You could wear a pendant-style piece or a string of pearls. If you wear a large or intricate hair flower, go with simple stud earrings.

Aside from jewlery, you could consider getting a bolero to wear with it. If you go with that, then I’d suggest not wearing a necklace.

Hope that helps. Have fun!
