a more polished up do for hair, fine jewelry accessories and a long veil will help! Lol the dress being named patchouli!! Love CP though.

It’s beautiful! 

Classic updo, simple accessories and smokey eye would de-boho the look.

I think it’s a very beautiful dress for a classic Spanish look I would do more  formal updo hair and make up simple pearl studs and a mantilla Veil lace fans are also popular wedding accessories here.

Well if you want Spanish I would def consider a Manitlla veil. I think this will help it look more ‘romantic’ rather than ‘boho’.

 

So again we want to enhance the ‘classic romance’ of this dress so you hair and make-up will play a role in that. I might do something bolder with a ‘sexy’ classic spin, I think this will steer you clear of anything ‘boho’ related (tends to be softer make-up looks).

Hair I think you could still do something soft and romantic (I think slick back is too harsh of a look for your lace dress). 

As for jewelry I probably wouldn’t do a necklace, just dropped earrings and a bracelet on your right hand (so just your rings are on your left).

polkadots16:  I think that dress is really classic and while the style right now is very much leaning towards boho chic and that dress does fit that with the right hair/makeup and accessories, you can certainly make that dress more classic by adding more glam hair, makeup and accessories too. 🙂
