I have this dress for a wedding this weekend. Since it's black I'm a bit unsure what to wear with it- tights, shoes, some sort of jacket/coat as it will be quite cold?

Ooh, that's nice. I'd go for nude tights so there's not too much black, give it a bit of a lift, and maybe accessorise with some sparkle? Shoes/bag/necklace, maybe? Yes to a jacket. Some wedding venues are bloody freezing.

Nude tights, fur coat.

Or a fabulous wrap/pashmina.

Just don't wear it with a black veil... :D

Oh bother, a black veil was just the headpiece I was thinking of. Imagine the warmth!

Thanks all, will source some nude tights asap then.

Oooh are you at a wedding this weekend? Iam too (wonder I I know you! )

That is a GORGEOUS dress. YY to some sort of fur stole/wrap thingy and lighter shoes.

It's a winter wedding, they can't expect everyone to be in flowery peach grin
