i like cathedral length veils… and you have gorgeous hair! i vote down and curly and maybe a hair comb (i like the hair thing in the pic below!) or a headband… there are so many options!!! what do you like?

pretty! i second long and curly hair. veil is such a personal preference and since your dress isn’t very busy, pretty much anything would go. i would say either birdcage or a veil that hits right before the dress poofs out.
as for a petticoat, keep in mind that the sample has probably flattened out a little, so your real dress will definitely look fuller. how poofy do you want it to be? if you can’t decide, try on some petticoats at your first fitting. they’re so easy to get, or your seamstress can add in extra crinoline if you decide that’s what you want. i would wait and see.

You look great in your dress. I think a fingertip veil (the one that goes to about the bottom of your back) would go great with your dress, but it’s worth trying different ones on and seeing what suits you and the dress best. I think you’ve got lovely hair so you could keep it down with perhaps some curls and some of those little jewel studs, pin or comb.

thank you ladies!!!
i appreciate all the precious compliments!
I am considering about having wavy/curly hair.
Tomorrow my mom and I are gonna go to the bridal shop to see how a petticoat will look with me and my dress.
still thinking about the veil, i am thinking about an elbow length but still confused with the tiara part. i loved the feather clip but i dont think it will work with my hair being down.
keep em coming!!!
