Accessorize me for a wedding

I bought this dress last year for a wedding - I like it, it suits me and it's comfortable. Planning to wear it again to an upcoming wedding in a few weeks' time. There isn't any guest list crossover except me, but I want to create a bit of a different look with it.

Last year, I wore it with:
Mint green collarless blazer-style jacket
Tan sandals
Small dark blue hat

I don't want to wear the jacket again. It looks good with trousers but with the dress it looked a bit frumpy. But are shawl-style wraps a bit too try-hard with a shorter dress?

I don't mind high heels. I would like to wear a hat, but not too fussy as it's a registry office wedding.

How about a brightly coloured cropped blazer like this or this, with navy block heels and a coordinating hat?

Ooh those shoes are cute. And the peplum jacket. Thanks!

At the last wedding before I found the mint green jacket, I was on the lookout for orange/coral but didn't find the exact shape I wanted. I definitely think a bright colour is needed rather than cream or navy, but only on one accessory, I don't want to look too matchy.

If you are standing around outside for pictures you could get cold. I think a coat is better than a jacket - fitted navy with a cream hat? I also think white/cream fake fur could look good but not sure it works with the white spots. Navy and white/cream are always chic but navy and anything else? Not sure - a colour pop works for the sake of it. Neutral shoes and clutch bag (or top handle).
