Hello! Today I had my bridal hair and make-up done. While I was happy with my make-up, I’m trying to decide on my hair. I think it looks elegant, but my mom prefers the more half up, half down big curls ala Miss America look.
However, my dress is Pronovias Malibu and is long & lacey, and all my decor is very rustic romantic. (But in a historic ballroom..think wood floors & tall, neutral walls seen here: http://grandballroomraleigh.com/)
What do you guys think? Note that on the actual day it will be smoother/shinier; today was a bit short on time (even though we went over) because I have naturally curly hair that had to be straightened.

I voted for 1/2 up, 1/2 down. I think it would look really good with your dress and add a bit of softer romantic to the whole look. And I really like your make up! You look so pretty!

I think your hair style looks so pretty, but I agree with the PP about half up/half down being softer. Your makeup looks amazing, it really makes your eyes stand out. You are one stunning lady!

I agree with the 1/2 up 1/2 down comments. I think it would take this style over the top.

I think the half up, half down would be so pretty. It looks like you have a lot of hair and this updo just feels really heavy.

Thanks for the comments! So much to think about – I may have to have another trial and then compare.

I think that style looks great. I don’t think it needs more volume at all, and I hate 1/2 up, 1/2 down, so I couldn’t vote for that.

@mrsSonthebeach: Thanks! I just feel like my normal “dressy” look is half-up half down with natural curls, it felt fun to do something different. but I do want to look my best!
