My fiance just threw me a curveball last week right before my hair trial. He said (the sweetest thing) “That he loves my hair and thinks it is one of my most attractive features and that I should wear it down”. Our wedding is in 5 days. I set up a second appointment with my hairdresser on Wednesday to play with some down styles.
I had been planning to wear my hair in an updo with a birdcage veil. I found a few photos of birdcage veils with long hair, but in general I think that they look the best with short hair or an updo.
I considered an updo that could be easily taken down for later in the evening, but my hair appointment is at noon and the wedding ceremony isn’t until 6pm…
Should I wear my hair down and keep the birdcage in the closet? or could I just wear it for the ceremony, but take it off for the reception and majority of the photos? I really had my heart set on the birdcage.

I say if you wear it down. Wear it half up half down. No matter how you look on your wedding day he will still love the way you look.

I think half back would look great!

I think birdcages look fine with hair down as long as it’s styled nicely. best of both worlds, I think.

I have the same dilemma! FI wants my hair down for the wedding, but I like birdcage veils. So I was wondering the same thing about having long hair with the birdcage!! I agree that it looks prettier with an updo, but I guess we want the FIs to be happy too!

I had my hair trial on Wednesday and here are my two options. I left the salon with my hair up and when I got home the Fiance said- oh- your hair up looks nice. I thought it was going to be really severely pulled back from your face….
However, everyone I have showed the photos to have liked the down-do better (with the exception of a couple of the hairdressers who thought the up-do was much more bridal).
I think I’ll be going with down…
Including some photos for jingle96.

OMG! I think it looks absolutely gorg in the down pictures with the veil. In fact, much much better than the up. So Old Hollywood.
