So I would like to have an up do for the ceremony and then switch to a half-up, half-down look for the reception. I want to wear a catherdal length veil for the ceremony and some sort of hair clip or MAYBE a tiara (I’m not a fan but I dont want to completely exclude them) and then for the reception I want to take off the veil and leave the hair accessory with a half up do. This is the problem: I have no idea what I am doing. I talked to my hair lady and she said she could just stay after the ceremony to redo my hair. But that is more $ and more TIME. I am clueless! What should I do? I was hoping I could just undo some of the up do to get the half do. Do you guys have any ideas? How are u planning on wearing your hair? I haven’t even found a hair comb or clip yet! I know I want something sparkly and something that matches the dress…ugh. I feel overwhelmed just writing all of this!
I am also adding cap sleeves to the dress with additional rhinestones, if that changes anything 🙂

No idea on the hair, but your dress is stunning!

If you have her curl and pin the ends under softly, you can have it up for the ceremony and then have a Bridesmaid or Best Man help you pull it down later.
Something with some volume on top and structure in the front will help keep it from looking like an afterthought when you let it down or have it up. so maybe a front like thi sthen curls pinned up softly in the back that you can let down later?

It is never a good idea to start messing with your hair mid-wedding. Hair stylists use a lot of product and clips to get that updo looking good and strong and since neither your nor a bridesmaid are trained in how to properly unclip the hair so it won’t be all tangled and mangled, I don’t think this is a good idea. If you really have your heart set on this, I would have your hairstylist stay. I wore my hair fully down for the whole wedding and even after I took my veil off after the ceremony, I wished I had someone there who could help fix my hair again because sometimes these things have a mind of their own after they’ve sat so long in a certain style. Plus, you can’t be gauranteed that the curls are going to actually look pretty (if they’re not super tangly) after you take the updo down. The curls might look squished or flat or be going out in different directions since they were pinned up.
It’s possible your hairstylist could help show you how to take the hair down during a trial, but that doesn’t take into account that on the day of the wedding those curls will be setting in the updo for a lot longer than at a hair trial, and there’s no way to avoid using a lot of hairspray if you really want the updo to stay until after the ceremony.

@eden I LOVE the bump in the front! That looks great!
@Supermann that is a really good point. I will be sure to talk with my hair dresser about it but for now, I just need some ideas in case we are able to switch up the hair btwn the ceremony and reception!
