I’ve been letting my hair grow out for the past couple years now and I love my length. I’ve always pictured my hair down being down for my wedding but my dress has a beautiful back and I really want to show it off. I had my hair and makeup trial yesterday and went with my original plan of keeping my hair down but now I’m rethinking it because of my dress. Should I do an updo to show off my dress or keep it down to show off my hair? I will attach a picture of the back of my dress and a picture of how long my hair is. Help deciding on my hair!! 1

    Can you maybe do a long braid down or braid your hair to one side so it’s still super long and showing off the back of the dress?

    You could try something side swept so yiu can show off both the back of the dress and the length of your hair

    To me, the fact that you're rethinking it says that in your gut, you want to do an updo. What do you think fits your face better? Like for me, I also have long hair and looooove my long hair, but I know it crowds my small frame and I photograph better with my hair up and away from my face.

    I think either would be fine but I love that updo and dress combination. I also think a swept or braid hairstyle would look super pretty.

    I love the updo with the dress in the first picture. The back of your dress is gorgeous, I wouldn’t cover it with your hair. I wanted to wear my hair down too but it’s about the same length as yours and covers all the details, so I’m going with an updo bun. I was going to do half up/half down but I feel like it’d be easier to have it all out of my face (personal preference though)

    Because most of the detailing is on the bodice of the dress and not the skirt, I like the updo idea. You also have a fantastic physique and toned back!
