Hi Ladies – Just bought this dress that I’m in love with but am having a hard time figuring out what hair accesory to wear. Our wedding is in Vegas, and I’ll be changing into the dress about 2 hours or so into the reception, and then I’ll be wearing it to the bar after the reception.
My main goal is I still want to look like a bride when we’re out. The dress is taffeta, so it is a bridal fabric, but I do think it looks a tad bit casual for a reception wedding dress. My style sense is more classic glam, but I’m also totally a hair flower kind of girl, think Style Me Pretty.
Should I go with a flower? If so, should it have fuschia in it to tie in with my shoes, or that could make it look less bridal. Our colors are fuschia and grey, the guys will be wearing medium dark grey suits. I know a facsinator veil deal would make me look more bridal, but not sure how that’d look on me. Any specific suggestions? Thanks!

I like the idea of the flower in your hair with that dress. I think I might go with a white/ivory flower since it’s more “bridal,” and that’s what you’re going for. Maybe something with a bit of sparkle? Cute shoes, by the way 🙂

I agree with the ivory idea too. Makes it more bridal than just “girl walking around vegas in a white dress”

I like this, by JannyFay on Etsy, if you don’t like this particular one she has lots to choose from;

Very sweet dress! I love it!
As for the hair accessory – I am partial to the following:
1. birdcage veil with an accent flower
2. simple ivory oversized flower
3. headband with birdcage
Examples are below (please note that if you decide to use a birdcage veil try it on before your wedding with your eye make-up done – if you will be using false lashes, extensions, etc… the birdcage material can get caught on your lashes):

I love the birdcage veils the PP found, personally, I would go that route.

Thanks ladies! I agree on the ivory and no fuschia, should make me look more bridal.
@Sandythepoet – I really like the first one, thank you!
@Hapabride – I love the first one! It has a smaller birdcage veil which I think I like a lot better than the ones covering your face. Where is that one from if you know?!?
I’m having a hair trial on the 13th of Feb. so will go try on pieces then. Thanks again for the input and taking the time to post pics! If anyone has any other specific ideas that’d be great!

@helenberrycrunch: I love it too! So chic!
@Gizmo19: It is from etsy.com. The first mini birdcage veil and flower comb ( you liked) is from: http://www.etsy.com/shop/FlortiniDesigns?ref=seller_info
Also, my friend is doing a mini birdcage veil and flower headband: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PixelandHank?section_id=7518728
