Post a pic of the dress. You may need to resize it if it’s not posting.

Whoops!  It doesn’t look like the picture went through.  Did you try resizing it?

Beautiful dress!  I don’t think the lace will make you look old at all!  I think you’ll be able to find a half up style or down style that will work with the dress.  I think a lot of times they show the dress with hair up so that you don’t miss any details.  Here are some images of non-strapless dresses with hair down.

As for the veil, I picture your dress with a more traditional veil, but I am 100% that you can pull off any kind of veil you want!

I dnt think the lace gives it an old look by any means what so ever. A birdcage veil would look fantastic with that dress, it would have a very romantic look to it all. I love the birdcage veils and its so hard to go wrong with them with lace

OK, first of all, lace does not equal old. I’m wearing lace and it’s lovely and wonderful.

As for hair, if you don’t like wearing your hair up, then don’t do it for your wedding. You won’t feel comfortable and you won’t feel like yourself. Half up would work or maybe a side ponytail. I’m not really seeing a birdcage veil with this dress. I would vote for going with something more traditional.

Love the dress.  I think I would pair it with a great sash and brooch at the waist to break it up a tad.  I think that the birdcage veil would be fantastic.  And just because you wear your hair up doesn’t mean it can’t be in your face.  A deep slung side bang with a low, full chignon would be so Hollywood vintage.  Good Choice!

I agree I can’t really picture a birdcage with this. I think a flower in the hair or a more traditional veil would work well. If you do a veil I would stick with something simple so you don’t take away from the AMAZING lace on the dress! As far as your hair. If you don’t like it all up I’d go with half up or down. With this dress I picture somehting with loose flowing curls would look awesome!

I love that dress & I do not think it looks “old” at all! 🙂

I think you hair half up would look amazing with this dress! Something like below:

As for the veil, I am not a huge fan of birdcage veils & I am not sure how it would work with this dress, but I think your idea of a simple flower in your hair would look amazing!

Best of luck to you! 🙂

I think a drop veil would look so pretty with this dress and the dress style, for me, would look better with hair down. Really loose waves would look amazing!

I don’t think lace will make you look old at all.  I think when you tried it on you would have recognized that.  That was the first thing I noticed when I tried some dresses on.  If you love birdcage veils I say go for it!  But if you are unsure post pics when you get the dress in different veils and we’ll do a vote!

I think it’s gorgeous and again, I think half up and half down hair would be great and NOOOO lace does NOT equal old at all.  To me, it is classy
