I have a similarly high necked dress, and I plan on putting my hair up. But if you don’t want to do that, how about a side plait or ponytail coming over one shoulder. Or maybe a half up half down look. I think you need your hair off your shoulders somewhat or it’ll look too busy in that area. But congratulations, it really is a beautiful dress!

@cazzasimpo:  I don’t think anyone is going to confuse you with a footballer or a swimmer  in that lovely dress!

You don’t have to wear your hair in a tight, high style if you want to wear it up. You can do something soft and loose like in the pic.

As for worrying about being too broad shouldered – The nice thing about your dress is that the wider skirt should balance out your shoulders nicely, whilst showing off your waist!

@cazzasimpo:  I think you will be fine in your dress, which is beautiful by the way.  I understand your worries though, I did the same thing.  Purchased a dress without EVER trying it on.  I have the same fears, my dress should be here today or tomorrow.  I am worried that a V-neck line won’t be flattering on my bigger boobs, and broad shoulders.  

Keep us posted on how it works out.  Your dress is stunning.  I love the high neck and the plunging V in the back.  Post pics as soon as you have some of you in the dress.

what a beautiful dress!!!

I agree with the idea of a side braid (if your hair is long enough)

You could also do a nice side chignon so that your hair is up and clear of the dress. It will help break up the neckline that way too.
