So here’s the deal: I bought my dress because I wanted something minimalist but elegant. When I tried on the blingy or fancy dresses I just felt they weren’t me at all. As far as apparel goes I was thinking my dress & these simple grey heels (see pictures) but I don’t know whether I should do a floor length veil, a crystal crown or a flower crown. My hair will be down with loose curls. My wedding will be in January in Montana (so COLD) and I will probably have a (faux) fur shawl What is everyone’s fashion thoughts? 😅
thank you!

**i bought my dress second hand so I’m using her photos (faces marked out for her privacy)

    I absolutely love your dress! Because it doesn't have its own train, you could do a chapel or cathedral length veil for the ceremony, then take it off for the reception! Just an idea. I also think the fur shawl will look great, as will those shoes.

    I agree with PP - a cathedral veil will look great with your dress!

    Your dress is beautiful! I also agree with a plain chapel or cathedral veil! A drop veil would look gorgeous! You could also get away with a small, minimalist style tiara (it'd look very royal).

    The dress and shoes will look stunning! And the shawl fits beautifully. I think long veil would work. Give you some length.

    For sure cathedral length veil. You can always remove it for the reception, that’s what I’m doing so no one will step on it! I think drop style veils are classy too. As far as headpiece accessories go, Idk if a flower crown would 100% match with the fur wrap, but that may not matter to you! I do like the idea of the crystal crown with a classy-simple dress. Or even something delicate. (Pics are examples just envision with hair down lol)

    Love your dress! Since it doesn't have much of a train a chapel length veil would look amazing with your dress. Add some drop earrings and you're good to go!

    GORGEOUS DRESS!!!! The neckline is beautiful alone so I wouldn’t wear a necklace if it were on me. Either blingy earrings or a tiara and studs IMO.

    Oh my goodness, I love this dress!! I know it's minimalist but it's so stunning!! The neckline is beautiful and the long sleeves will be perfect for a January wedding!!

    I totally agree with the pp's and think that a cathedral veil would look so stunning with the dress!

    On the other hand, a crystal crown would look amazing! Especially with your faux fur shawl!

    I can't wait to hear what you decide!!

    Yes I think that delicate head jewelry is subtle and classy! Since your 5'2, it might be worth going to a David's Bridal or something and asking just to try on different size veils for reference. Maybe Chapel length is better in this case. I also think drop earrings would go SO well, but remember with your hair down they may get caught in your hair during pictures lol!
