I think that you should do what you’re most comfortable with.  If you were going for just a regular photo, would you straighten?  How does your FH like your hair?  For me, i wanted to look a little fancy, but also relaxed too so i wore it the way I normally do.

Sounds like you feel more special with straight hair, and engagement is a special thing!  Whatever will make you feel most attractive.  Hairstyles will come and go, so 10 years from now who knows if curly will even “look like yourself” anymore.  I say do what makes you feel the most attractive!

I would go with straight hair if you like the look of it. It’s a fancy day, so fancy hair is ok!

I went through the same dilemma, and I ended up going with my naturally wavy hair down, and then made a few loose spirals with a curling iron to enhance the waves.  My decision mainly was a result of realizing what my hair does once it’s straightened, though:  It looks awesome for about a half an hour or so, then the curl tries to sneak back in and everything gets really stringy. 

Personally, I think that I prefer seeing pictures of people looking like themselves, but you should do whatever makes you most comfortable!

We just got our pictures back, and honestly I’m not very happy with them.  MY FI looks great in every shot, and I just really wish I had thought more about my hair and outfit.  I wore my hair down, and our pictures were outside…and it was sort of windy, and I don’t know…it just looks weird in a lot of the pictures.  I REALLY wish I had worn my hair up….so girls with long hair…I would definitely suggest that to you…unless you’re doing your pics inside, or have really thick hair that won’t get wind-swept. I think you’re very smart to go with an up-do…I wish I did!

I think you should wear the straight hair.  It’s a special occasion and will add a little flair to your photos.  Especially if you’re planning on wearing it curly for the wedding, this might be a little change.
