Hair up definetly!! Very organised of you to have a photo of each lol.

I think you could have something sparkly on your head to compliment the empire line detail on your dress. To go with my comment about your hair being up I think the veil also looks best when it is at the back and sitting on your up do – get what I mean?

I think you should go with a cathedral veil with crystal/rhinestone trim.  It will complement the beading on the front of your dress!

I like the cathedral veil idea also. Very classic dress that calls for stunning and classic accessories. Awesome job on dress shopping! You get a gold star for the day!

Hair up is a match for this gown!  It’s a very glamourous, tailored look, so your hair should be “done up” in my opinion.  It doesn’t look like the gown of gown where you should let your hair just hang 🙂

Have you considered a really short veil?  My favorite detail of your gown is the flared bottom, and I would worry that a longer veil might detract.  If you wear a short veil, there will be two clear focal points, so his eyes will literally go up and down your body – from the hem to veil, and back again.

OOOh! you’re going to look beautiful!  Great pics.

I vote for your hair to be in a loose updo.

My best friend just bought a dress with a very simliar cut… it’s also very femine and delicate like your dress.  We have been searching Los Angeles for “THE” jewelry to go with it, and though she’s on a budget, we don’t want to have anything look “cheap”.  (I’m an incredibly involved Maid of Honor, can you tell! lol)

 

The other day after coffee we strolled into a jewelry shop in Los Feiz, CA and were thrilled with what we saw!!  My friend, Hannah, has photos of her dress on her phone, so we were able to find most perfect necklace and earrings to compliment her dress.   Since her dress is a similar style as yours, I think you should definitly check out this jewelry online- we found out you can order off the internet if you don’t live in LA!  The desinger’s name is Liza Shtromberg, and her website is http://www.lizashtromberg.com

The pieces are so beautiful that I was inspired to spread the word.. Liza is an incredible designer, and so easy to work with.   Hannah is even concidering having Liza design the groom-to-be’s wedding band because Liza offers custom orders.

Look at what she bought to go with her dress!   (I took this picture is off of Liza Shtromberg’s website, but we will take pics of jewelry with the dress next time she and I get together)

You look great! I would say a loose half updo and big, sparkly, dangly earrings. Great big ones. And a sparkly bracelet.

I’m not sure about the veils because I don’t know how to pick between them myself.

@avogel0318: I had 2 custom made by different vendors on Etsy. I still can’t decide which one to wear, but have a couple months to choose.
