Here is a link to my gown:
I will be wearing a finger tip veil with some crystal beading along the edges (just to give some sparkle, but not too heavy). I also bought a pearl and crystal comb that looks headband/tiara like, depending on how it is worn (it is flexible).
Here is a picture of me:
I’m probably most self-conscious of my nose/profile and lines on my forehead. I am torn between some of these Audrey Hepburn-esque styles and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Here are some examples. I welcome all your opinions, advice and critiques. My trial is this week!!!
sorry for all the heavy pics/large files…i love all these styles just need to find one that will highlight my best features, downplay the not so nice ones, and go well with the gown and formality of the occasion. I think I sideswept bang of some sort might be order.
Thanks in advance!

I really like the Sarah Michelle Gellar blonde ‘do, because it’s romantic without being too formal. The first two styles strike me as being too stiff. You have a lovely natural texture and colour to your hair, and I think a slightly messy updo would highlight that more.

@peonyinparis: thank you! would the comb go on top and then the veil underneath the bun? or both on top? my poor hairstylist is going to have her hands full with me next week, lol!

Not the second… it seems so stiff, and I think it would look the same on you. For your face shape, I really like the idea of having the framing bits that SMG has in her brunette pic, with the back hairstyle she has in her blonde pic.
I like the idea of your comb either just above the updo or to one of the sides.

I like the last two and voted for the Sarah updo when she had blonde hair. The first two pictures remind me of 90s prom styles. I love the last two and think either one would look great on you.

Thanks, ladies! The association to the word “prom” just made me throw up in my mouth a little, LOL!
I am thinking I might take both SMG pics to my hairstylist and we can blend the two (to frame my face a little…I liked that idea, thanks!).
With the comb…it’s pretty large. I wonder if it would fit/look right on the side? I hope so…because having an accessory on the side would distract from my not so beautiful features, I think…and, be nice for pics/crowd shots during the ceremony.
