@mrs_sweetteach:  You look awesome in that dress!  I might have the shoulder straps taken up a little bit so the straps don’t crumple any.  Otherwise you have the curves for it!




My first thought is a chunky necklace:




LOVE this one ^



Etsy has TONS of very affordable ones.  They have pearl clusters and even colored pearls too.




If you do a chunky necklace than simpler earings are best.




If you love earrings MORE, then I’d skip the necklace and go for statement earrings:







Then I think I would add a bracelet with either option, maybe a bridal cuff or a pearl cuff?


With the fabric you have I think statement jewerly is the best, something bold.  I don’t think a belt is too needed as you have all the ruching on the body.

@mrs_sweetteach:  First off… the dress is beautiful! I don’t think it needs much other than a good steam, honestly. But statement jewelry will up it to the next level.

Second… STOP LOOKING AT OTHER DRESSES! There is ALWAYS going to be something  that looks better. Once you’ve made a decision, just stop. That goes for everything- flowers, decor, venues… once you paid stop looking at the other things out there. Are you browsing dating sites, just to see what other men are available? Nope– cause you HAVE ONE YOU LOVE. Treat your wedding the same way. Love it. Cherish it. It’s perfect for you and it’s yours forever.

I would change the belt and get a nice pair of drop or chandelier earrings. OR maybe try it w/o a belt and an amazing statement necklace with a nice pair of studs?

I think this would look modern, very chic, and smashing with a birdcage veil.

Your dress is very chic and elegant, I think a birdcage (and a red lip) would look divine! As for jewellery, I wouldn’t do very much…maybe some vintage-style pearl earrings, but I would keep accessories minimal.

I love that dress on you! It makes your butt look great! I also bought my dress as DB and while waiting for it to come in(even now that I have it at home) I would look at all these posts here on the bee and get awful dress envy thinking “ I should have tried more on, maybe there is something better out there.” But whenever I try it on again that same feeling that I got when I first bought it reminds me that this is MY DRESS, the one for me. Once I started buying little things for my dress and trying them on with my dress I felt a lot better..


I second the idea of a birdcage veil as I think with how simply elegant the dress is it would be a perfect fit, maybe some drop earrings…

I almost got that one! Dont regret the purchase it looks great on you! i do second the chunky necklace and i would go with a modern style birdcage veil then you arent taking away from the awesome neckline (it is what i loved about that one!).

Your body looks amazing with that dress!

I would skip the necklace and do vintage glam with a red lip and birdcage veil as others have said. Then perhaps add a pearl statement necklace for the reception? I would skip the sash, I think it just distracts the clean lines of the dress and your body.
