Hi ladies this is my first thread smile I wonder if you can help me.... I have an all day invitation to a wedding in April and I think I have found the perfect dress :D Now I would like to get a hatinator/hair accessorie and shoes, bag etc but I'm stumped as to what colour to go for... I prefer not to have black if I can avoid it was thinking nudes or pink or blue of course. I think the shade of blue is a bit unusual (not the usual cobalt/electric blue). Anyway here is a link to the dress I'm eyeing up

I think blue would be too matchy and black too harsh you're right.

I think nude, muted/matt metallics (gold/bronze/silver), grey or maybe leopard/snakeskin would work.

I am the same as you fauxfox I don't like being too matchy matchy I like mixing things up a bit.. smile

Wouldn't go leopard print but I think a grey/silver snakeskin would go

Yes silver would be nice, or yellow? But you would have to get the right shade of yellow, would need to be quite bright without being tacky!

I would go quite bright with bag and fascinator in a sort of colour blocking / contrasting way, maybe something like this from Etsy So you could have either a pink or orange box clutch and nude or pale gold heels.

Strappy heels would be good in a pale nude / gold as they would be 'invisible' on your feet, jewellery i'd keep really minimal and fine on the neck and wrist.

I wore a long dress exactly the same colour to a ball last year.. I wore gold/bronze bag and shoes and accessories..
