This might not be much help, but if you’re planning on curling your hair for your wedding, your hair will be shorter than in the picture, so that will help show more of the back of the dress.

By The Way, that’s a beautiful dress!

My dress is open back as well, and I’ve got the same dilema. Would it be possible to work with your hair dresser to do some sort of curled up do that has a few bobbypins to pull out to make it half down? This way you can showcase the back of the dress for the ceremony and however long into the reception you’d like, but then you can let your hair down (haha) for the party. 

Here’s some of my inspiration pics:


let down

Or a braided alternative that keeps it back but down and still lets the details of your dress show.

@indibee: Love those examples! (And completely off topic, love that they are both Taylor Swift LOL)

Anyways, maybe try getting someone else to do your hair to the side. I know I have tried doing it to myself and it looks SO bad. But then if a friend, or a hairdresser does it, it looks a lot better!
