Hey ladies – I have lots of long (mid-back), naturally wavy, baby fine hair. I prefer to have my hair up and out of my face, but my fiance really wants me to wear it down for the wedding. I would definitely wear my hair down if the ceremony and reception were indoors, but we’re having a beach wedding and an outdoor reception, which probably means a lot wind, and most likely tangled/matted hair by the end of the night.
Has anyone been through this before? Or does anyone have any ideas on a compromise for this?

What is it with men???? LOL my Fiance told me I have to have my hair down for the wedding when I was planning a nice up-do… I am having mine indoors though.

You should wear your hair however will make you feel prettiest.
On the day of the wedding he’s going to be overwhelmed by how beautiful you look and he honestly probably won’t care if your hair is up or down.
If you want to compromise, maybe you could wear it up for the ceremony and then take out the bottom part for the reception, so you’re left w/ half up/half down.

Split the difference, half up and half down.
I think most guys want their brides to resemble how they normally look. That’s what they fell in love with!

When I was planning my dress, hair, and make-up, I tried to think of what my husband would like as much as possible. My thought on it is this… that day is about you and your dear husband. Not anyone else. I wanted to look like what he had dreamed of. Now, I say that, but my Darling Husband and I have very similar taste. I wanted my hair up & loose, and he loved that.
Maybe ask him what “down” means to him. Sometimes men think they know more about hair then they do. Maybe to him, down is just having some down. Or just loose and not in a tight updo. Maybe that could help you make your decision a little better.

@ManciasToBe: I hope you don’t mind but I’m going to send your hair inspiration board to my stylist for ideas–this is EXACTLY the hairstyle I want!
@franks.katie: I have to agree with PPs, maybe a half up, half down hairstyle would be best. When I think of beach weddings, I always think of loose, flowy, long hair and not severe up-do’s. If my wedding was on the beach I would definitely have it down, but I’m concerned that it will look too beachy/informal for my venue. I have the same hair as you–long, fine, but lots of it. I think the proper amount of hairspray and a little of it pulled back should be fine all day.

Does he know how your dress looks? My hubby told me his preference, but in the end he said I should go with what looked best with my dress. A good compromise would be to wear it half up and half down.

I agree with others with half up half down look for ceremony. And the later you could pin it all up so it doesn’t get too tangled and you don’t have to worry about the wind.

I would do what you want. I’m wearing my super long hair up for much the same reason. It’s going to be hot and my hair is unruly when its down. FH mentioned having my hair down and I told him he was crazy.

You might be able to find a happy medium and wear it half up and half down as some other bee’s suggested. I’m wearing extensions to get a longer length curl and more volume but I am also concerned about my curls falling out or it getting blown around and looking messy (we are getting married by the water as well)
So my hair stylest is going to subtley pin up the curls going all the way down the back of my hair so that it all stays where its supposed to. That plus a ton of hairspray should keep everything in place.
