I don’t know what it is, but I really love the more modest styles of wedding dress where there isn’t a ton of cleavage and back showing. I think it's really the lace accents - they look very vintage while also maintaining a dainty elegance. I also can't get enough of the airiness of the tulle skirt when it’s styled in a sheath like this, not just in the typical ball gown style that everyone is so used to seeing.
ABOUT THE ACCESSORIES: When I'm looking at the accessories currently paired with this dress, my eyes go right to the chunky bracelets, then to the crystal/pearl beaded belt, then up to the cap sleeves and covered chest. It stops at the flower in the hair. I’m trying to picture the hair pulled back in a messy up-do to pair a nice hair piece instead of that bracelet. I’m thinking the Laurel comb, definitely in silver. The hair comb replaces the large hair flower with something subtle, dainty and innocent, while staying true to the original styling with florals.
So, let’s maybe even skip the hair piece altogether and go right to the ears.
The floral lace designed on the bodice is so beautiful that we should skip a necklace completely and opt for a very delicate pair of our Blair earrings, in silver, of course. If you zoom into the bead/crystal/pearl work on the waist, you’ll see that these earrings pair best, and aren’t too overpowering to the eyes. The goal is to continue to draw the eye up to the face.
