Help me add sparkle/shimmer to a lace dress?

How do I add some shimmer here? They had me try a rhinestone edge veil - but it's over budget. What about shoes? I tried this soft lace look - but I'd like to add sophistication to this somehow - and I'm not feeling the lace from head to toe - I'd rather have a little contrast so the lace on the dress catches all the attention.

Pictures, links, suggestions welcome... Imagine you were dressing me up - what would you do?

    Could you look online for a cheaper sparkly veil? Or a sparkly headband? Sparkly shoes? Depending on budget, maybe a sparkly underlay for the dress or sparkly belt? Depending on budget, they could sew sparkles onto the sleeves & lace too.

    A belt would be really pretty paired with statement earrings! I almost picked a dress exactly like that, you look stunning!

    Would a belt make it look more elegant or sophisticated? Why do I worry that I look like a young bride - when I am not. HA!

    I think the rhinestone edge veil would look great, there are cheaper alternatives if you liked the look of it. Blanca veils is very affordable and they customize each veil for you. I’d say give them a try. If not definitely go with some sparkly shoes, maybe silver with glitter?

    I would try a belt, I got a nice one on Aliexpress for less than $10. You could use a nice statement necklace and or hairpiece too

    Definitely a belt! Plus drop earrings and a bracelet. I’m not a young bride either (47 years old) but I’m doing it all! You’re a bride and want to feel like one!
