What colour accessories with this dress?

I've just bought this dress to wear to a wedding next month. I've got a sizeable bump and choosing a dress has been tricky as everything looks tent like apart from this one.
What colour accessories would you choose to go with it? I first thought nude/blush heels, navy and nude fascinator or similar but I'm thinking this is thoroughly boring!
Any ideas?

I'd go for cobalt blue, or orange. Or possibly sea green.

Lovely dress, btw!

Rose pink, dove grey, any shade or combination of blues. Magenta.

Really nice dress. Something bright to lift it?

Grey, teal, purple, coral

I had a navy dress for my friends wedding and I wore a deep orange colour - it complemented really well. Silver or gold would also be nice smile

Thanks, great suggestions, grey is a great idea and I really hadn't thought about it. Though something bright might be good too. Off for a look at beautiful shoes!

Coral pink always seems to be in fashion every summer. How about a necklace, corsage, bag and shoes in coral pink? Another winning colour is turquoise, if it suits you? Or, if you suit darker tones, how about a stunning red for all the accessories? No need to be boring or "safe" , better to be happy in your own skin and accessorise with colours you love, that really suit you. The dress is very elegant, but does need to be offset with some exciting accessories.

What sort of heel would you wear?

Well, I'm heavily pregnant so no very high heels unfortunately, and ideally I'd rather go for shoes rather than strappy sandals and I'd need to wear nude tights as my legs since being pregnant are a bit of a veiny state! So I thought about a court shoe, or something with a bit of a heel, maybe 3 inches/4 at a push.

I've got dark, just past shoulder length hair and pretty boring pale-ish skin tone so I am thinking that something bright would lift the whole thing.

Ultimately I need to be comfortable but we have a gap of 3 hours in between the meal and evening do, where I will go and grab our toddler and can sit down at my parents for an hour or 2 so could rest feet!

So really I need to find shoes and co-ordinating fascinator and also a wrap/pashmina type thing that would suit a dark haired heavily pregnant person! grin

Here are a few suggestions, though I don't have a lot of time to browse... Just a few preliminary ideas, but I'm sure anyone with time on their hands can find better...
