Alright girls… after going back and forth over some other dresses… and Dear Fiance knowing I was really a Disney girl at heart, he took me to the only store near us that had the Alfred Angelo dresses and made me try on the Belle dress…. and we ordered it. Woo!
We also totally *woosh* changed our wedding plans from a barn wedding in MN to a small wedding in Disney World! See how much he loves me? I get my dream wedding and I get to be a princess!
So anyway… this is all I have to wear (well not yet, it’s not arrived yet)… but I don’t know how to pair jewelry with clothing. I was a tomboy growing up and my e-ring is the only piece of jewelry I own.
Does anyone have any ideas how to accessorize this dress? Anything quirky. I kinda want some color and not just the normal diamonds everywhere look.

I would go for minimal jewelry, no necklace or a VERY simple one because the bodice is so elaborate. And go for a pop of color in the earrings, maybe sapphire so it can be your “Something Blue” like these (not quite quirky, but very vintage and princess-y!)
And some matching bracelets like these:
Sorry these are huge, the photo editor tool is not working!

Honestly if you are not used to wearing jewelry you dont have to wear any.. with that being said I think a nice pair of drop earings, and a bracelet would be nice… I dont know if a necalace is really needed. But then again thats just my opinion.

@rosworms: they were all just google image searches for “sapphire drop earrings” and “sapphire bracelet”. Not sure where you can buy these exact ones but this type of style is pretty easy to find lately because the whole Kate Middleton thing has re-surged sapphire’s popularity! (Though totally not why I choose them, I just think sapphires are a gorgeous and timeless alternative if you don’t want plain diamonds)

@My_Honeycomb: +1 I actually am a belle bride as well (the 2012 version though) and I love all of your suggetions. I also agree with all of the previous posters that no necklace is needed.
