I have decided to use the headpiece that my mother wore at her wedding. It used to be white, but it actually has worn into an ivory color over the years, which works out perfectly since my dress is an ivory/pearl!
Anyway, the headpiece if very wide. My mother wore it on top of her head, but I plan to wear it in the back of my head. Since it is pretty wide, it extends from the middle to the lower part of my head. I am going to get a cathedral length veil and have it attached to the headpiece. So my questions are:1) Since the headpiece is so wide, and I want an updo, I feel like my hairstyles are limited. Unfortunately my hair is thin, so a low updo won't be very full. Does anyone have any hair ideas?2) The headpiece will go on top of my hair and the veil over my hair- I am worried about my hair a) getting messed up when I take the headpiece and veil off after the ceremony and b) what my head will look like once I take the headpiece off. Any advice or reassurances my hair will still look great for the reception?Her headpiece is beautiful and I am very excited to wear it- I am just worried about my hair looking like I just rolled out of bed after this is all over!Thanks!
