Help me accessorise this dress

I have bought this dress for a wedding soon and need some ideas on colours of accessories.
Shoes and bag a minimum, and possibly a little jacket if it's chilly.

Is black the way to go, or can I add some colour - or will it be too much?

I don't like the shoes the model is wearing and would probably opt for a simple heeled court.

Black shoes would go well but I think a full court may be too heavy for it. How about black peep toe shoes?

Was thinking black peep toe too!
Shoes/bag/jacket... I always go with two in one colour and one in another..
So maybe black shoes, clutch and then a coloured cardi..? Or black shoes, cardi and a totally random classy colour handbag maybe??
Love the dress, have fun x

I meant clashy colour bag, not classy!!

I'd go for rose coloured shoes, black too heavy. Or silver. Maybe a silver bag but only if the shoes are a different colour. Pretty dress.

Thanks for your advice.
I was thinking black shoes might make my legs look too pasty - even with a bit of fake tan slapped on. Especially with that black panel at the bottom of the dress.

I have a lovely pair of rose coloured heels which cost me a fortune and I adore, but the shade isn't quite right, they're a bit too orange.

How about white or cream coloured shoes?

What about rose gold?

I would wear tan sandles with that dress.
