I probably wouldn’t wear a black wedding dress myself, but I’m all for switching things up and rethinking old traditions.

First, you should take your event into consideration. Is it snooty or casual? I believe you wouldn’t wear prom hair to a friend’s BBQ. Then you must know your dress fabric well. Is your dress shiny and blingy, or more simple? An overly elaborate updo paired with a plain cotton dress is going to look just plain weird. Also, you should make sure how much skin you want to show. At last, thin about the weather. Are you going to be outside on the beach or in an airtight ballroom?

If your dress is really exquisite, don’t take away from the dress with too much hairstyling. Keep it simple by choosing a style that is soft and sweet. Bare shoulders allow free falling locks, especially for brides with medium length hair. Soft curls that fall right above the neckline draw attention to the collarbones and bust line, making the style look effortless. Braided styles are best for romantic flowing gowns with sweetheart necklines. Your options are limited with short hair, but you can played it up with a pretty headband and hair that swoops to the side, which is dressy, and the shine is kept to a polished finish that works with her sophisticated gown.

Many vintage lovers would collect clothing from the early 1950s to the 1980s. Many second-hand clothes are really expensive because of the history traces on them.
