Gorgeous, gorgeous dress and your reception sounds just lovely too!

As for accessories, I think I’d keep it simple since the dress has so much going on – maybe a drop pearl or bead necklace?

I agree with the above post.  If you go with art deco bling earings then no necklace.  The dress is beautiful it has a great vintage feel.

Ahh!! I tried on that dress and loved it! It looks great with a birdcage veil.

I wore a veil and a feather/rhinestone hairpiece. 

I however don’t know your style so a drop pearl necklace may be good for you.  I’m slightly trendy.  I chose my dress because it was trendy yet vintage.  My hairpiece and jewelry reflected my style and personality.

My necklace and earrings matched, of course, and they went perfectly with the jewels on the chest of this dress.  Hopefully you can see everything in this picture.

Omg your dress is gorgeous!!! I just love the shape! I would have a fingertip length veil yes, and a pretty hair comb, pins or side tiara. And then some lovely dangly earrings and no necklace! Heres a few ideas…

The first two are from AuroraCollections on Etsy and the last one is from eminjewelry also on Etsy. Both shops have some really pretty things in there!! Best of luck.

Thank you!  That made me feel so good.  πŸ™‚  Our dress is amazing, I must say.  I can’t wait to see your wedding photos.  When is your wedding date? 

Love the earrings.  You’ll be gorgeous! πŸ™‚

Hi Girls

I am also in LOVE with this dress and think you have made an excellent choice.

They squeezed me into the one in the shop but it was slightly too small for me, I was thinking of ordering it in the next size up but am stuck on the decision!

Because the dress did not fit me right I did not try to sit in it or do anything in it really, I was curious lezli32 if the dress was comfortable to sit in and to wear all night?

Thanks for your help πŸ™‚

I agree with the other girls and if I am to get this dress think I will avoid a necklace and stick with earings like the pictures above and i will be wearing a birdcage veil!

To be honest, I think the first time I sat in it I thought to myself, “Oh my goodness, this is weird I’d never sat in it before the big purchase or even during fittings”.  I think it was awkward at first, I don’t really remember.  However, I do know that my pictures that I am sitting down or some of my favorites!

Honestly, how much are you sitting down at your wedding anyway?  πŸ™‚

I think the no necklace is a good suggestion depending on how busy your earrings are.  I know that I am really glad I wore my necklace.  My veil was another one of my favs!
