Do you have a theme?  The first thing that came to mind was something that draped long in the back.  But you could also do a big brooch or hairpiece that could be modified for a shoulder piece.  Something like http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=acc_hat_hairgoods&product_id=1089452566&Page=all&pgcount=25 or http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=acc_hat_hairgoods&product_id=1055985783&Page=all&pgcount=25

I’m hoping to dress up my gown with a sparkly tiara or headband.  I went to Sposabella and tried on this one and it might be a winner.  (I’m going with a vintage theme)  The sparkles are unbelievable in real life.  The photos online are terrible.

The Josephine Fan headpiece.  

If I was having a more modern wedding (I took the liberty of looking up your dress) I’d go with a stunner from Jennifer Behr.  You might recognize some of her work from Gossip Girl.  Blair is a fan.  (and after looking through these again I might go check these out too)

Hope this helps!
