What accessories should I wear with my dress?
Posted: Feb 2, 2010 7:30 PM

I have been saving money for my wedding dress for ages. Last week I finally ordered it and I'm so excited!

Here is a picture of my dress:

As you can see, the bodice of the dress is jeweled and I am afraid it is easy to overaccessorize this dress. I'm thinking of wearing opera gloves and no jewelry at all. My sisters think I should wear a veil, as this is probably the only time in my life that I'll have the oppurtunity to wear one.
What do you think?

First of all WOW. I love your dress.

I agree that it would be easy to over accessorize. I would definitely skip a necklace with the dress. Some small dangly earrings would definitely look nice as well. Whatever you choose, I'd keep the accessories away from the bodice area as it would compete with the dress.

I was thinking the same thing as you OP.
I pretty much never suggest wearing opera gloves but when I first saw that photo the first thing that popped to my head was "gloves...and nothing else."

You can take your cues from the designer herself, who shows the dress as she ideally wouldlike to see it.Notice, no necklace,no gloves, just dramatic earrings. As for a veil, Ireally think it would take away from the dram of the dress. At most I'd suggest a "fascinator" headpiece with a little net veiling.

I definitely wouldn't wear a necklace with this dress. The bodice has so much going on, adding a necklace would be too much.

But I think that gloves & earrings are a great idea! I would even suggest simple diamond earrings, nothing dangly. And I just can't imagine this dress with a veil. It's a gorgeous formal ballgown & although your sisters are right, this is the only time you get to wear a veil, I just don't think it's needed. You're dress is beautiful!

That is a gorgeous dress! I agree with the other posters in that you don't need much accessorizing with that dress- maybe just some earrings? Also consider how you want to wear your hair- if you are going with a full up-do, some dangly dramatic earrings, similar to what the model is wearing, would be lovely- and if you are going to wear your hair down, or in a half up-do, maybe some small diamond studs, or small hoops or something?
