I need your help! I have my dress and now I am clueless about what to do for accessories and my hair. Because of the high front and the exposed back I am assuming I should have a classic updo! I don’t want to look really severe with my hair back so I wouldn’t mind something romantic and flowy.. if that makes sense! As for accessories, I obviously can’t wear a necklace, I was thinking about putting something to match my belt in my hair, and yes that is the veil I will be wearing!
Please, if someone can give me any advice on hair, accessories, shoes, anything! I need it! 🙂

Wilson2Bee: First off, beautiful dress!! If that were my dress, I would say earrings and a bracelet but no necklace- the neckline is rather high and might look a bit crowded if you added a necklace. The dress has a lot of great things happening too, so keep earrings simple- IMO I’d wear posts not dangly ones. For hair, you could do a lot of things! I like the idea of a low updo, something soft. It looks like in the pic you have long hair, so if you have it down, it will cover up the pretty back. If you wanted it down, what about off to the side?

shorebride105: Ah thank you! I agree, I am a little sad I can’t wear my necklace I got from my FI years ago but I might try to incorporate it another way. Yeah I don’t wear a lot of accessories often but I was considering wearing my diamond post earrings I got from my grandmother years ago, so definitely agree with the post earrings and just a simple bracelet of some kind. I completely agree, I want a soft, low, updo! I actually really love those first pictures you posted, I should see if that would work with my veil! I do have long hair, so there are endless possibilites I could do! I was considering doing a side bun type hairstyle because my MIL says that side hair makes your face look less severe than it all pulled back, but if it’s romantic and soft it won’t have that effect either!
Thanks for the ideas!!

Wilson2Bee: looks great! I have just under 3 months to go and I’m super clueless about what I will do. My dress is in but I haven’t seen it yet, so I think once I see how I look it in, I’ll decide on hair and accessories. Mine is sweetheart strapless so I have a lot of options.
Another style I really like…
And here’s a pic of veil with side swept hair:
