Looks great on you and it looks very flowy, I like it a lot. And flowers in your hair on the beach would look very nice I think. Please post the pic of the actual day!

myown, I think that a flower headpiece could look really pretty with this dress because it looks very fluttery and flowy. Though, if you do so, maybe a delicate flower crown work work very well with it? That way it doesn't overpower the whole look. Or you could wear your hair in a chingnon and have flowers tucked into your hair somehow. But I must say, great choice of dress style and color! Whatever you wear will look stunning.

Maybe these websites gives you some ideas about headpieces, I like them a lot:

Also a few or one lily above one ear would also look very nice.

^ Probably you have to have the right ear for that If you can find or create a design you like, your florist should be able to make what you want.

I love etsy. there is also a similar site, it´s called "dawanda" (i think it´s theres an english-site, too) that has also a lot of great headpieces.
i will definitely look there.

Congratulations myown ! Your dress is gorgeous

I have a jewellery question: I am looking for pendant sapphire (and diamonds) earrings and google is not helping at all :/ I want something very nice (grade 6/6) in a deep blue colour to go with my engagement ring + wedding band..
Any ideas? :/

Another question: so I am having 2 weddings and I was wondering if you thought it might look weird to re-use items (such as shoes) I wore for my first wedding? (no guests at the first one but pictures will be sent to our closest friends/family)

Thank you
/sorry if this is OT

^ I can't help you with the jewellery, but I doubt most people would notice the shoes - unless they are quite a noticeable piece -, and I think those that do notice will not judge that at all.

The jewellery is a hard one. Is it possible that the jeweller who sold you the ring/band, also sells a matching pendant/earrings? Or could he design something similar? And how exactly do the pendant/earrings have to look like? A sapphire in the middle surrounded by diamonds?

It's totally not weird to re-use items, especially not if they're great. If I have a great pair of heels I would like to show them off and thus rewear them with no problems at all. Also with less noticeable pieces I would rewear them if they make my outfit look great.

Jewellery: Sadly, the wedding band is from Tiffany (not sold anymore, thanks god I bought it as soon I saw it) and the engagement ring is a long story as my fiance designed it but found the diamonds and the sapphire elsewhere. I checked the website of the designer but didn't find anything...I might try to ask him tho. Thank you Nymphea, it is a good idea I didn't really want to start another project though especially since I can't find my bridesmaid dresses I have a very precise idea of what I want and I can't find it off the rack. Which is really really annoying...

Those are the earrings I really like. Albeit, if I had to design it, I would like to flower on the upper part of the earring and then have the round sapphires throughout the whole length. But then I am thinking that maybe if I see so many similar styles (sapphire on top and bottom and then diamonds in the middle), it might be because it looks better that way

Re-using items for a wedding: You are too nice ladies. I really hope it will be alright.. For the first wedding the colour scheme is white & yellow/gold accessories and for the second one it is white/blue/red. White & red for the decor and for me (some flowers in the bouquet) but blue & red for my brides (red shoes). I was wondering if it might be okay to go for the same golden shoes than for the first wedding or if I should stick to either red or blue shoes (?)

Bridesmaid: I might have more luck here. I am looking for dresses in this colour (cobalt blue/deep navy blue) (pinterest, zimbio)

but with this back (Duduta.com)

this front (and sheer/tulle sleeves): sweetheart neckline deep a bit more v-neck and not padded (credit: Rainingblossom, outfootinfo)

Fitted at the bodice/top and then flowy/airy from the hips

Have you seen a dress like that somewhere?

You've got great taste EvaH! But it's gonna be difficult I think. Concerning the jewellery, I think the best option would be to design something yourself so the result is 100% what you want. The big brands carry their own signature collections, not much sapphire and looking through the lesser known brands is going to take ages unfortunately and succes is not guaranteed.

Great dress, but to find all the details in one dress is a very lucky find I think, maybe let a tailor do his job.....difficult! So far I haven't seen anything coming close to what you want unfortunately.

And the shoes, it also depends on the design of your shoes which one to choose, not only the color I think. Choose the one you like best with your outfit and you feel comfortable in.
