    Personally, I’m not one for getting too mitchy-matchy with accessories (I know I said it was okay to wear purple-on-purple shoes and crinoline to someone else, but that was for a funk element, I think), so I would go with ivory lace before pink. Pink in this case pushes the ensemble a little too close to sweet sixteen for my comfort.

    Are you planning on wearing the shawl throughout the ceremony, or is it just an accessory for travel, the reception or if it gets cold?

    Go with ivory–you don’t want to overdo the pink (which is gorgeous, btw).

    definitley not pink, it’s too matchy matchy.  And honestly, i wouldn’t go for lace either, no matter what color.  that dress already is very lacy and busy, and with the flowers in your hair (which look beautiful btw)  i think a lace wrap will take it from “pretty and romantic” to “dawdy and old-fashioned” like something out of your grandmother’s house, you know?  what about an adorable cashmere cardigan??  in soft ivory, in a shrunken silhouette so it’s very feminine and pretty.  Have you seen this idea done before?  I’ve seen it on SMP and other blogs, what do you think??

    Where did you get your shoes from if you mind me asking?

    I would go ivory , but not lace, you have enough lace already,   plus  it wil be hard to match exactly as you have found . Something  like  a feather light angora might be nice, or faux fur or faux marabout -or  chiffon if you only want it to be very light.
