    You dont look like a boy dont be ridiculous girl! That said, I love the back of your dress and the hair up shows it off really well, but I like how the curls frame your face, have you considered a side curl hair do. I saw another bee with it but can’t remember where

    @lealorali:  both of these hairstyles look great on you! And you definitely do NOT look like a boy! The updo is very elegant. But I also have the “I look like a boy when my hair is all up” complex so I know what you’re thinking, haha. I voted for the half-up with loose curls. I really like the piece you have in your hair for the half-up.

    Okay, at first glance I preferred the half up look and that’s how I voted in the poll, but looking again I actually think I prefer all the way up. It doesn’t cover any of your dress and I think it looks really elegant.

    @lealorali:  First of all, your dress is unreal!! Second of all, I’ve had alot of friends that have gotten married and have all worn their hair down and honestly, I think it’s a mistake. Unless you had=ve incredible, super thick hair and your hairdresser is on hand, your hair isn’t going to hold up. The only person who pulled this look off was my HAIRDRESSER, who had her staff on hand (they were guests at the wedding) AND she wore sewn-in extensions. The low bun is SO classic and it won’t get messy. Just some friendly advice!

    I agree with  @juicytray:  the brides I’ve seen wear their hair down almost inevitably end up with it looking a bit stringy after such a long day and dancing. Plus, after awhile I think having my hair on my back would have started to annoy me. Updos are plenty feminine! I think the updo is great on you and it shows off the back of your dress 🙂 The dress is gorgeous, I can’t believe you got it for such a steal!

    I love the half up, half down look. I think wearing your hair like that is a mistake if you wear a strapless gown, but you have straps and gorgeous hair so I say go for it!

    @lealorali:  what a stunning dress!  i like the idea of having your hair up in a very loose bun maybe on the side so it still shows your hair but it’s off of your shoulders. 

    this is a good example with the same dress neckline.

    or maybe something to the side like this…

    Half up! I think that bun just looks a little austere for a bride. I would bet money that your groom would want to see at least some of those long lovely locks. Also I think the half-up do looks really nice with your dress.

    However I guess I’m biased because I have never seen anyone with clean hair that looked “stringy” to me, and your hair looks lovely and thick so I would NOT consider extensions.
