How would you accessorise this dress for a wedding?

I need some S&B wisdom.

I am thinking of adding a skinny black belt to it - or should I leave well alone? hmm

What sort of shoes would look best with it, and what about tights, if any?

Anything else I should consider?

Any and all advice much appreciated!

I'd avoid a belt.

This time of year you need tights - but would suggest not black, would cheapen it...

Only other thing, how formal/traditional a wedding is it? Red is traditionally the colour for the grooms mistress...

Oh dear - really?!

It's not that traditional - just standard issue, really. I doubt the black one would be more appropriate?

hmmmm - a thong?

I like these shoes

I like it - presumably you are going for the longer length one though?!

I would wear black tights and black courts, with black skinny belt, black beads. It's not the sort of dress to wear nudes with IMO.

Yes, the longer length one!

I should mention that I'm 5' 10" so tend to avoid very high heels.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Ithink that black tights would look awful tbh.

And a belt-why?
