I know it is black but its one of these uber cool venues with exposed brick, vintage armchairs on the lawn, giant illuminated letters at the end of the aisle etx.

I need shoes bag and something for my hair. I also need a petticoat to make the dress flare as it does in the pic.

Im 5"2 and 30yo. I will have a 3yo and a 9mo with me so no skyscraper heels (but I will need a bit of a heel at least).

Ideally £100 max for accessories. I have no idea!

Thanks in advance!

What colours suit you?

If you've got a few weeks to wait, get a petticoat from eBay. I got a real bargain on one and it didn't take too long to arrive.

Alternatively, had a look on Amazon.

I usually wear navy/purple/grey/bottle green. With the dress being so dark, and its an August wedding, my sister suggested a powder blue?

Thanks for the petticoat tip!

What happens if it's really sunny? Black will make you really hot.

Hmmm I hadnt really considered that. We are far north so its never usually hotter than about 20° and theres lots of shaded places in the grounds.

I suppose I assumed id be inside for most of it.

I think I'd wear it with pink slingbacks + bag to make it look summery.

I'm a bit over fascinators, so maybe a vintage diamante hair comb in keeping with 50s style dress.

I thought lime green and silver would liven things up a bit.
I agree about the fascinator. Hair clip or feather hair band - sticking with the 50s vibe?

Colour match the petticoat to your shoes
