Now that I have picked a dress, I need more help 🙂
I have a couple questions and I’d like some suggestions…
Brides with ball gowns, is it pretty easy to bustle the dresses? Are you able to move easy? What did you wear for the ballgown skirt a hoop or crinoline? Any suggestions with the ball gown style dresses?
The suggestions you can maybe help with:
I want to do a statement necklace, in a blush pink I’m thinking…any good finds? I’ve been looking but have had no luck.. What veil options would be best? I have one on in the picture, but I’m not sure it looks right. Flat out over all what accessories would you suggest?
Any help is welcome! Thank you in advance!!
Heres the dress 🙂 it will be in white/white, white/ivory is pictured

my dress is about the same shape as yours – the alterations person bustled the under layers with ties and then clips for the top layer bustle. i added a sparkly sash which i adore. a flower necklace from bebe bridal and heart earrings from swarkoski – and a flower for the hair
i would suggest a sash – its my favorite part of my dress

@jen 42713: A sash may be a good idea, I’ve been on etsy browsing them..

I would maybe opt for a different style of veil so it isn’t too much of the same thing going on (the veil looks like the same material as your dress). Maybe something shorter if lacier or blingier.

@FortiesFlare: Yes, it is the same material as the dress… that’s kind of what I was thinking it looks like too much of the same.

I don’t think the sash looks good with the dress, I think it’s fine without a sash. There’s enough going on at the bottom of the dress with all the poofiness. I think a statement necklace would be nice.
