    I chose A, because that is my style, but then I saw your dress and maybe it doesn’t quite go. A is a little more modern and your dress more traditional/soft.  I think the last one would go nice E- with the flowers

    So here’s my first thought: will it be comfortable to have a metal headband? They always give me headaches and I don’t want you to have a headache on your wedding day.

    P.S. Great dress!

    Since your dress has some sparkly detail on the top of the dress at the upper right side, I wouldn’t choose A,B, or C because I think it would be sparkle overload.

    I think option D & E will work well with your dress, because it will compliement your dress detail with just the right amount of sparkle. Plus D is SO CUTE!!

    I’m torn between A and E!  But I voted for E since you said you would rather have a metal headband.  Honestly – I wasn’t much of a fan of ANY of the others, but those two really caught my eye!

    I agree with the previous posters.  Sometimes metal headbands dig into your scalp.  I’d spend some time looking for a type head band made with ribbon/satin and a little bling. 

    Here are a couple I found on Etsy:

     **Edit – just read that you don’t mind headbands, but maybe someone else might like these.** 

    P.S. You look great in your gown!

    @CorgiTales: Really? Well then, I’ll take another look at your choices, but say that I’m very frugal *cough* cheap…

    i love A and E. if you really want symmetrical, go with A. you can have your hairstylist cut off the ribbon and pin in to your head.

    i chose D with E as a close second.

    in regards to what the futuremcbride said, metal headbands give me a headache as well, but since you wear headbands a lot i’m guessing it won’t be a problem for you. i don’t think a ribbon headband would stay in my hair either…it’s very slippery as well and things tend to slide right out of my hair.

    I love E!  I also like D, but I think E has a unique style that would look great with the embellishment on your dress.  Beautiful dress, btw!
