Mefi fashionistas: Help me jazz up my 60s wedding dress with just the right accessories! Pics inside...
You all did such a great job helping me dress
up for my best friend's wedding, I thought I'd get some more of the same for my own upcoming big day, which is happening next month here in London (!!). I found a really fabulous and flattering dress on Etsy + some really cute shoes on Zappos
. Hair will be probably be up. Current accessories include pearl drop earrings with sentimental value, and an as-yet-unseen bracelet that my mom is currently making for me, but I'm lost trying to figure out the rest of the accessories and touches to pull everything together.
I'm inclined to keep going with a sort of 60s vintage look, but in my previous question, which also involved a period-style dress, some wise commenters cautioned me against looking to costume-y and I'd like to avoid that here, too.
Wedding details: just 20 guests (all family), town hall ceremony followed by canapes and then dinner, so hopefully a relatively chill day all around. Since the wedding is so small and brief--like my budget--, I'd also like to buy things I can feasibly use again.
Needs & questions:
-A wrap or jacket that might go well with the dress (or shoes??), and which I could wear comfortably inside if it's drafty (plus I tend to shiver when I'm tense or nervous no matter the temperature). I was briefly considering something like this
, but they're meant more for outdoor pics than hanging around inside. I was thinking that since the dress is so structured, a loose wrap or shrug wouldn't go well, but I might be wrong. Maybe this
in a different colour?
-Sash or no sash? I keep seeing them everywhere, but not sure if one would work here.
-Should my clutch match with the dress or shoes?
-Same question for the fascinator or birdcage veil I was thinking of wearing.
: Is this dress re-wearable? I have been assured that it is, but I have my doubts.
I'm looking forward to reading your suggestions. Thanks in advance and Happy New Year!
