How to Accessorize a Swiss Dot Bridal Dress

The Swiss Dot is making a come back!   This lovely fabric, also sometimes called "point d'esprit lace" are a super sweet way to accessorize your wedding.  Designers like Modern Trousseau, Anne Barge, Christos, and Fancy New York (shown above, the Emily Dress) are all designed in delicious dots for brides' wedding gowns.  In a recent issue of BridesMagazine, they declared that they were loving gowns with "lots of dots" as they lookladylike and fresh.  I couldn't agree more!  

But the dotted look can be hard to accessorize, so don't fear if you've fallen in love with that swiss dot dress, here are some of out top picks for creating the perfect statement when your dress is made with "lots of dots."

Veil designers have been loving dots this season too.  While you can wear a traditional veil with a dotted wedding dress, if the bodice of your gown is created with a different fabric like the Fancy New York Emily Dress (pictured at top), a veil created with the same material will look especially chic.  I'm in love with this super soft veil designed by Lauren Jayne Bridal.

Shown with the Sorrell Necklace, $269

If you're not crazy about a traditional veil, Erica Koesler has designed the Dot Face Veil.  Adorned with soft feathers and a faux flower, the veil can go from ceremony to reception with a simple tuck of the tulle.  This shorter version of the dotted veil would be pretty with a simple silk dress as well.  Available in natural only, $220. Shown with the Trio Pearl Strand Necklace, $169.

When it comes to jewelry, let the soft and delicate dots be the statement.  Big bling, chunky stones, and lots of crystals feels too hard for this soft look.  Select small, round shapes and pretty pearls for the best look.  

My favorite selections, clockwise from top left:
Venice Stud Earrings, $132
Three strand Fairy Tale Bracelet designed Haute Bride, $189
Bubble Necklace, $149 (matching bracelet also available.
CZ Pearl Hairpins, $98 set of 3
Hera Pearl Earrings, $62, designed by Ianneci Bridal
