Hello, beeees!<br /><br />I’ve been stuck on deciding on a hairdo for months. I also can’t decide on if I should have a veil due to how my dress looks. Currently with my hair down normally, it’s a couple inches past my armpits. I’ve included pictures of my dress so you can see what my dilemma is <br /><br />

How Im deciding mine is: Im going on pinterest and searching bridal looks, bridal hair, bridal hair with veil etc and pinning whatever I like to an albumn. Then, I went and looked through and realized I have a LOT more updos than down or half downs and now Im just narrowing down the updos 🙂

I think if you have an updo and a really simple veil (like maybe a fingertip-length raw-edge or pencil-edge veil) the back of the dress will still be visible. And wow, is that a gorgeous gown!

Elrodien: don’t you dare cover the back/shoulders of that dress! They’re breathtaking!
At most, sweep your hair to one side if you want it down but I’d put it up..in a soft, pretty updo (not super structured, severe or tight).

I agree with the soft, pretty up-do. If you do a veil, I’d make sure it was extremely simple so as not to compete with the detail of the dress. If you’ve always dreamed of having a veil, I say go-for-it regarless of how the back of your dress looks because you’ll probably take the veil off at some point during the reception and people will get to enjoy the back of your dress at that point.

Scou: emthebrave: LDay1983: Scatterflowers22: Thanks all!! I agree that if I do an updo, I wanted something a bit more loose and not something pulling my face back, LOL. I also figured if I end up doing a veil, fingertip length is perfect. I think the only reason I really want one is to do a fabulous veil-flying-behind-me photo, but I’m not sure if it’s worth it just for that moment!

The back is too gorgeous for a veil in my opinion. Why not do a birdcage maybe? But if you do go with a finger tip then make it one layer of tulle or the fabric the skirt of your dress is made from.

Wow, the back of your dress is stunning! I agree with going with a loose updo and maybe a raw edge veil only worn for the ceremony. then take it off to show off the dress.
