I think a nice big pair of gold colored earrings like the girl is wearing here and a big statement bracelet.  If I can find any pics during the day I will post them!  I wouldnt go too overboard on the accessories, I think it will take away from that gorgeous dress!

I’d do exactly like they’ve done it in the photo…only earrings. Great dress!

Hi Adam’s Bee!

Gorgeous dress. Where’s it from?

I would wear a purple sparkly bracelet and buy a sparkly clutch bag to match Accesorize do lots of cute bags or Debenhams.

Love the dress! It is so prettty it really doesn’t need accessorizing! But I like the idea of black jewelry…or even mixing metals!

I kinda like the idea of emerald colored earrings … the pop of green could look fabulous

Given the limitations your Bridesmaids have set* of GOLD – BLACK – IVORY – or PURPLE…

I think you are onto something with Post # 9 above… I always LOVE pairing Black with Gold (so classic, rich etc).  You could do just one statement piece, such as a Necklace OR have the choice of adding on a few other items as well… all in the Black & Gold combo

Example… Black Stud Earrings and perhaps a Cuff or Chunky Bracelet

From this great webpage that has other choices as well = http://www.buy.com/th/gold-onyx-stud-earrings.html

Otherwise, if you stick with Gold, it can quickly be too much… a Gold Rush Overload if you will … so best to just choose a nice pair of earrings (like in the picture)

PS… For shoes and a purse, I think you want to go cream or beige (aka Ivory like your GFs have suggested).

Hope this helps,

*NOTE – Colour Limitations – do hope you’ll come back after all is said and done, and tell us exactly WHY they did that… and how it tied into the Shower Theme.
