I think these two, with pearls to match the color of your dress would be best. Think white pearls with a white dress and off white pearls with an ivory dress. I like how the floral-rosette details seems to match. And belts with simple dresses are so flattering. I don't really think that the turquoise necklace would match the belts you've chosen very well. The idea is that you want to look cohesively put together. I think that if you were going for a really bohemian look then the turquoise necklace would be good. But, all of the other accessories you've picked out don't say bohemian to me. What I would do is look at some bridal pictures that have the "style" you're going for, not necessarily the same dress, and then try to match the size and quantity of the accessories to it. Or, at least that's how I went about picking mine out. Also, how are you considering doing your hair and earrings? Are you going to use big statement pieces. A big necklace with big earring and big hair jewelry might be too much, so that might be something you want to think about too.
Here's what, after what I'm sure amounts to hundreds of hours on pinterest, I'm thinking for my accessories. My dress has a lot of bling along the neckline, so probably no necklace. Chandelier earrings and a simple rhinestone headband. The latest thing I'm debating is including a hair vine in my hair as well, I have the beads that match the beading in my dress and I'm thinking I could make a vine that later could be worn as a necklace. the big thing is that I want to feel light and luminous... radiant even. I want people to think they should have worn sunglasses when they look at me.
I've posted a couple of these before...
detail and wide shots of my dress (no glasses on the day of the wedding)
This hair color and makeup
Here's the headband, which couldn't match the beading pattern and rhinestones more perfectly. Also the veil which has some rhinestones and pearls, it's two tier scalloped edge, fingertip length. .. try to ignore the roots. I'm also going to make small rhinestone-magnetic veil weights to keep the veil from blowing all over the place. When I get them made, I'll post them on here for you all to see.

hair vine idea shots, I also love the little tendrils on the last shot.
I haven't decided btwn these two earring sets yet, but I think I'm leaning toward the second set.
nails... I also have a rhinestone cuff, but I don't have a picture of it.
essentially, everything about me is gonna sparkle... and that's just the way I like it. I'm hoping that if I keep it pulled back a bit on each piece it won't be too overwhelming all together.. Posting all of this was pretty helpful actually, it's the first time I've seen it all laid out together.
