If you want to wear your hair loose, do curl up the ends.  Also, be sure that the style is pulled a little away from your face.  I’m a stylist and say this because loose hair tends to get in the way as you move your body, speak, hand-holding etc. and you want to be sure that your face is clearly seen and you will be happy with your photo out-takes.  

Your dress is dramatic and you want to be sure that you wear very simple accessories (after all, it’s about the dress, not the jewels).  You can do a veil like below which is dramatic with a mix of 1920’s and now.  You can get one with a flower and gemstone if you prefer that over feathers – you can’t go wrong with either.




If you want a very dramatic “back do” – this look is fabulous and you could add hair extensions if necessary (at which point, I’d use a very plain, short silk veil just to cover the face or none at all.


If you want a dramatic veil, make sure it is simple – well-made and the best tulle you can buy.  see http://www.etsy.com/listing/78849068/long-cathedral-bridal-veil-cut-edge



Good luck and “try on” some of these ideas and see what feels right for you.
