    Don’t you dare cover the back of that gorgeous dress! Hair up all the way (and I, like you, am a hair down kind of girl). I did my hair up because I wanted to showcase the back of my dress and honestly it was a lot less hassle because I wasn’t concerned about curls coming loose.

    Based on the dress I would say hair up, but if you’re more comfortable with it down then I say wear it down. It’s the one day where you want to feel the most beautiful, so I would do whatever is more likely to make you feel that way.

    Please do it up, though not if it wil be at the expense of your comfort. That’s such a beautiful back, and it begs to be seen, but you need to feel good.

    peoniesbaby :  Not sure if this is your budget or would work with whatever timeline you have, but could you wear your hair down for the ceremony and retain your stylist to pin your hair up for the reception? Best of both worlds! If you did a first look I think this could work really well.

    I would definitely go hair-up with that back- covering it up would be a travesty. If you want to show off your curls and feel more like yourself, you could always go with a looser updo rather than something tight like in that photo. Something polished but a little more organic would be lovely.

    You mentioned you feel best when you have wavy curls, however the back of that dress is just too amazing to cover up.  Maybe you could have the best of both worlds by either having a loose wavy up style or alternatively wear your hair down in loose waves to one side.

    I always always I would thought I would wear my hair down on my wedding day, until the first time I tried on my dress and realized that it would completely cover the intricate and beautiful back. And also getting married outside in July willl likely be hot and windy. I voted up because you don’t want to take away from your beautiful dress!!

    I vote for a side swept do to show off the back and your curls.

    How about a half up-half down kind of style? I just saw a bee posted pictures above, and I think that’s lovely, and a nice compromise!
