    Your hair looks GORGEOUS! You did a wonderful job! Was recently at a wedding where the bride had a similar style professionally done, and I prefer yours!!! Well done!

    @kirramakai:  I think it looks amazing! I personally wouldn’t go pro! other than the left side where a little hair is pulled out (seen in the second picture), I think it looks perfect! What does the front look like?

    That is so not what I expected when I opened this thread!  Looks fantastic!!!  As long as you think it will stay put and not stress you out to diy…I say go for it!

    Love it! If it is something that won’t cause you extra stress on your big day, then definitely do it yourself. It looks great!

    @kirramakai:  Oh I LOVE the waterfall braid! Absolutely gorgeous! You definitely don’t need a pro! Just make sure that you use a good hairspray to keep it in. I would ask a professional artist what they would suggest. Otherwise, nope, you did amazing!

    Amazing! The only thing I’d worry about is longevity. As pp said, hairspray! Don’t want those curls to drop.

    That is spectacular! Have you worn it for 8 hours inside/outside/in humidity, etc? Just want to make sure your hair product keeps the curls from falling. Really really amazing job, though!!

    I think it looks great!  I assume you have a coordinator to take care of the logistics, so you won’t be running around like crazy that morning.  If it’s not going to cause you ridiculous amounts of stress, then go for it!
