Hello! Thanks to support on the forums, I stuck it out with my short dress and here it is, almost finished with alterations.
We’re getting married (just the two of us) in Paris during summer just for background.
All I have is sparkly cilp ons for the shoes but now I don’t know if I should go vintagy pearl accessories like
or glam like
of if I should have anything at all? What’s your opinion? Accessories? Necklace? Anything?
My hair will be casual messy half up half down.

@Supermann816 thank you!!! <3 I’ve been sooo insecure about it lol my tailor keeps telling me stand up straight and stop hunching because I’m so worried I look silly. I even almost bought a huge long dress a few weeks ago. Thanks to the forum I managed to stick with my guns.

thanks @Miss Sardine ! So glad I’ve had such nice comments here about the short dress.
Anyone got any ideas on how to accessorise? Of if I even should?

Very Nice 🙂 I would go with the Vintage Pearl look – becuase Paris gives me ‘that’ kind of feeling… Also it just gives your Fun dress that touch of ‘Classical Elegance’ in a City that is all about the same…
You will be Stunning…

I would wear one strand of classic pearls for necklace and then stack a few pearl/crystal bracelets on one arm. Simple but chic.

seems pearls are the verdict! I’ll work with that. Still trying to figure out if a necklace is too much

I love the dress 🙂 You look fantastic! I’ll play devil’s advocate I think blingy is the way to go. I don’t like the vintage look with a short dress, its too modern. I’d say a nice diamond pendant and a pair of studs maybe?
I was thinking something like one of these for the necklace:
and these for the studs:
or this pair:
I found these on Hearts on fire here:
hopefully this will give you some ideas!

Thanks for the feedback @Cbran2323 I actually tried some pearls on with the dress today and i’m not sure they’re the way to go anymore! really thought they were. I’ll try blingy a go and looove those earrings 🙂

I think I would go big, fun and crystal. Like a chunky, clustered rhinestone bracelet and big dangle earrings.
