Girls, help me! I originally was getting a blingy belt to go with my otherwise plain-ish dress, plain being no bling at all. Anyway, Ive decided to splurge & buy acacia ii headpiece with acacia i bracelet. Do you think it will look ok?! Would a belt with the acacia pieces be too much ? Should I have no belt & the bling be the headpiece & bracelet? These are them! All opinions welcome! Having my hair similar to this pic too & its the same headpiece, took this pic from google images!

HI Craigsmrs, The headpiece is magnificent and I love the dress also. Love the whole look to be honest. I wouldn't also introduce such a statement bracelet as well though. Your hairpiece is the focal point along with you and the dress. The bracelet would just be drawing the eye to too many places and distracting from the main menu...i.e YOU! Your dress is not plain at all, it's classy and very gorgeous and there is enough going on there. Are you wearing a veil?

I agree with littlebo, the head piece is plenty with the dress that kind of bracelet might be too much and your dress is gorgeous by the way :)

I'm kind of in the same boat and I agree with the others about the bracelet. I think the veil and headpiece along are such statement pieces they are gorgeous enough. Mine are very similar and I am wearing small droplet earrings and a small bracelet and thats it. I kind of thought that with the veil and the headpiece, I would prefer a bare neck with my dress, especially with longer earrings...don't know if that helps you or not?

wear the braclet on the opposite hand to the side of the head piece and u will be fine! Love your dress!

I have to disagree with the others here... if it were me I would get the blingy belt and the headpiece but I'd probably give the bracelet a miss then. I love when bride's customise their dresses to suit themselves. Plus I'm a TOTAL magpie. Fab dress either way tho.

I wouldnt have worn all 3, just the bracelet & headpiece r headpiece alone. Id have to get a different headpiece to go with the belt, so the belt would rule the acacia head piece out :( oh decisions

Dress is gorgeous... i would go with the head piece only though.. the bracelet might take away from the classiness of the dress ..

If you want a male opinion: a belt would cheapen the look of what's currently a very classy dress and the bracelet looks really tacky tbh. Go with just the headpiece and the dress.
