I didn’t give my FI the option to tell me how he pictures my hair on our wedding day. If your dress has beautiful detail on the back, I would most definitely not want to cover that up.
Why don’t you try a loose updo, thats nice and soft, but still shows the back of your dress, rather than a stiff and tight one?

Same problem, gave my hair a trim this morning so that it wont cover too much of the dress. But that may be a bit drastic. I would probably go for a loose up do.

I did both.  Updo for the ceremony and down for the reception.  Ask your stylist if they can do a convertible style for you, if that sounds like an option.

Most certainly do not cover up beautiful detailing on the back of your dress!! 🙂

I love dresses with detailed, illusion backs!  Definitely show it off, that’s the whole point!  If your hair is down and in the way, no one will see the beautiful detailing and get the big picture.  Maybe you can have your hair done so that at the reception, you can take out a few hair pins and voila, hair is down?

I don’t know if this is what you mean by pinned to one side, but you would do something like this maybe as a compromise

It’s not up to him! I’ll wear my hair how I want and how I’m comfortable. Plus guys have no understanding of how hair down just can’t last for 12+ hours.

I wanted mine down, DH likes it up.  I ended up putting it up only because it was unseasonably HOT and I didn’t want my hair stuck to my neck and back.

@MoreGlam:  I want to look beautiful in my FI’s eyes, so of course his opinion counts. It is the only opinion that counts. Maybe you can compromise and do half up and still leave some pieces framing your face. I find that updos look harsh and I generally think women look better with their hair done (and I don’t know a single man who disagrees with that statement). I would never do something intentionally that my FI found unattractive, let alone on our wedding day.

I think you should discuss it together and come to a compromise.

I absolutely WANTED my FI’s opinion and it will be a big factor. The last thing I want is to wear something he hates on our own wedding day. It won’t be something I hate either. We can figure these things out together.
