That’s a beautiful dress 🙂 Maybe you could vintage it up with your hair and makeup? Some pin curls and finger waves under a bird cage veil, and juicy cherry red lips. And big pearls too!

There are some ideas here for hair.

maybe a simple birdcage veil, I think that speaks vintage but could also go with your dress.

@so_said_ellie: PERFECT suggestions. I 2nd all of it.

And that dress is STUNNING.

Maybe you could get some art-deco style jewelry too.

You could add an old fashioned brooch. I really love the idea of pin curls or finger waves and a bird cage veil!

@so_said_ellie: I agree! I would say that would do the trick!

Everyone knows a bride doesn’t compromise on her dress 😉 and it would be a neat twist on a vintage theme I think! Oh my goodness I love that dress! It is so beautiful!! Congrats!

We are kind of doing the same thing. Want a vintage style but I have my heart set on a non vintage dress. So I will probably vintage it up with hair, makeup, and jewelry.

a lace bolero can definitely up the vintage factor, but so can all the other great suggestions!  Show pictures when you decide!
