Up in a loose chignon.  I am not taking any chances of it blowing around and since it’s so humid, any curls will fall out and all I have is a frizzy yet limp mess.

 I want to wear mine down or do a side pony but I’m afraid it will fall flat in the humidity. I also love this updo<

 

Whatever I choose I’m definitley wearing flowers in my hair:)

I wanted to do down, like in loose waves, but I heard it was a disaster because of the wind. I’m thinking up is the way to go. A cute side-curly-do. 🙂

Sort of halfsies for me… I was concerned about the wind blowing it around & I have alot of hair so i’d end up looking like cousin it… BUT since I have so much hair full updo’s start to hurt my neck after 3-4 hours, that’s alot of weight to hold up! So I’m going with a side braid/updo combo instead…

@MrsD2Be:  I had a DW and I wore my hair mostly down and it was pinned slightly on the sides

I am a bit worried about the wind as well…  I am looking at combs and think I might experiment with some styles before the actual day.  I hate how I look with my hair up so we’ll see!

Up! I know my hair, and it would be a frizzy, lifeless mess if I left it down.

@MrsD2Be:  It blew a little but not too much really. For the most part it stayed in place……but I must say I think I have heavy hair or something b/c here is a pic with me and my MOH and as you can see her hair was blowing….LOL

 

I also think the the tons of pins, comb and the weight of the veil(rhinestone trim) played a part in keeping my hair in place

 

Here is a pic that I am referring to with my MOH’s hair blowing but mine was staying in place……but I had tons of hair spray as well

 

 

Another pic of me walking down the aisle……no issues with it blowing

I’ve been agonizing over this.  I really, really hate how my hair looks up.  I always wear my hair down and feel that I wouldn’t look like “me” with my hair up, but I also don’t want to end up with a big knotted ball of hair.  Ahh! Decisions, decisions.

@MrsD2Be:  We are doing our ceremony right before sunset, so I’m not as fussed about heat/humidity. I love the look of my hair down and HATE how it looks pulled back. Down in waves is my answer!

I did mine up in a loose/messy bun to the side. It ended up being so incredibly windy on the day of my wedding that I’m *so* glad that I did. I don’t even want to think about what it would have looked like in our portraits- I would have spent the entire time trying to keep my long long hair out of both mine and DH’s faces.
