    What type of hairstyle are you thinking?Up, down, half up? That will sort of dictate the hair piece.

    If you don’t want a veil, there are plenty of options. Your wording, “hair thingy” is what really drew me in. 😉 If I weren’t doing a veil (I didn’t think I was; my dress changed my mind!) then I would do a flower or a big clip.

    It looks like the pattern on the dress has color to it?  I think your hair up with a long simple veil would look great.  I would try to make it long to floor, but VERY simple no stones, pattern lace etc.  Just tulle maybe died to match one of the softer colors of dress.

    Whoa you’re 50?  I would have guessed twenty years younger than that.

    Pffft.  Gorgeous dress,  and never say you are “too old” for anything!!!  If you like veils, wear one!  I never would have guessed you to be 50 either, by the way!  I hope I look that good at 50 (I’m  only 11 years behind ya!)!!

    Having said that, I am never good at determining what veil length and style and all when it comes to what goes best with a given dress.  I am wearing a veil I found at the thrift store for $5 and dressed it up with a crystal comb, but I just lucked out because it has cording that matches the trim on my dress so I am wearing it for the ceremony then switching to something simpler for the dinner after so it won’t be in my way.

    I could see a flower fascinator on one side above your ear, maybe with a hint of the same color that is on your dress.   Or a sparkly comb, maybe with a bit of tulle or net?

    Here are pics of favorites I’ve saved, maybe you can get ideas:

    I’m with the crowd–can’t believe you are 50.  Since your wedding is somewhat informal, I am thinking half-up with some real flowers, probably coordinating with your bouquet.  If you do decide on a veil, I agree with florencep–chapel length and plain.

    Dang, you’re gorgeous!  I agree… you’re not fifty. you must be messing with us. hehe Laughing

    I think I’d go with flowers, or something delicate.  Very pretty dress!

    Wow. I’m not  close to 50 but I seriously hope I age that well. I woulda guessed like… 35. 40 MAYBE. That being said, if you want to rock a veil, go ahead! I agree with the PP, a really short birdcage or flower/feather hair piece would be lovely. I would avoid a long, ornate veil because it would take away from your beautiful dress.

    OMG you do not look 50!  I think you should wear whatever will make you happy.
