What do you guys think? My wife-to-be likes my hair up with the birdcage veil, but I’m on the fence. This is for our legal ceremony, which will be a relaxed and quick affair with just a few friends in DC. I will be wearing a knee-length strapless ivory gown with a fitted bodice and flared ’50s style skirt, and some kickass 4″ red stilettos. What’s your opinion? Thanks!

I like it both ways but I think I prefer it down. It’s very soft and romantic.

Go with it up. It looks nice down, but I don’t think it works as well with that gorgeous veil.

I like it up! It looks great either way, though.

I was going to say long (gorgeous hair!) until I reread your post and saw you’re doing a shorter 50’s style dress with stilettos- I say, play the part and pull the hair back 🙂 maybe loosely?

I agree with danadelphia- you look great both ways, but I think down looks slightly better. Can’t wait to see ceremony pics!

I think it looks great both ways, but I think with your hair up it would look great with the birdcage veil! With your hair down it kind of takes away from it, even though it looks great either way

I say up! Not only do I think it looks better, but I think it will go better with your birdcage and with your whole ensemble. You may also want to add a poll. I love those. Sometimes I don’t feel like or have time to comment, but it’s quick and easy to vote. =)

Looks nice both ways, but I think up-dos suit the style of the birdcage veil a bit better.

I vote up too! Sounds like your emsemble will be gorgeous either way though!

I vote up… but both look good. 🙂
I am also a sucker for my own wife-to-be’s preferences because she’s really never ever a demanding person with me at all. I kind of run the show here, well, pretty much all the time so when she makes a request I cave pretty quickly, unless it’s something that would just look awful. 😉
Love the red stilettos idea too! I have patent leather red heeled mary janes that I have briefly considered wearing as wedding shoes. I keep going back to blue though.
