instead of embellishments, i would add a rhinestone sash.

when your dress comes in, try it on with a few different crinolines to see what you like. normally, samples get kind of smushed due to lots of try ons, so there’s a possibility that your dress will be much poofier than this one.

I think your dress is beautiful just the way it is. If you want to add something try a sah or belt something you can try on and take off incase you dont like it, but like I said your gown is simply beautiful the way it is.

 You can always add to your look an embellished necklace or large glamorous earrings and a bracelet and maybe a hair piece for when you take off your veil to “spruce” up your look.

Ps I love it! who is the designer?

I’d try a sash as kitzy suggests. You could also enquire about the possibility of having swarovksi cystals sewn onto the dress throughout the bodice. I don’t think it needs too much as it’s a lovely dress.

I think your dress is gorgeous!! But as amberdawn1064 said a belt would be perfect!!! Larazo makes the prettiest sparkly belts that would look amazing and you can definately remove it if you want too! πŸ™‚

I agree with PPs that a nice sash would really set off the dress and add a nice point of interest. πŸ™‚

I would leave the dress as is and accessorize with some great statement jewelry.

I think it would be awesome with just a “statement” necklace and some pretty knobs in your ears to match.

I agree a beaded belt/sash.

I would wear a chunkier style necklace with it.
