We are getting eloped in a private ceremony in Kenya (reception back in the states when we return). We will be married about 5 days into our safari trip at one of the safari camps. It’s a very remote location so I won’t be able to have any professional help with hair! While there is electricity, they won’t allow blowdryers because it will blow a circuit. I’ll have access to some cordless tools- possibly a blow dryer if I can one, curling iron, flat iron.. I have glossy fine hair.. about the same color and texture as Emily Blunt, Alexa Chung or Jessica Biel. It’s very slippery and does not hold a curl for longer than an hour and hair spray tends to look weird or messy after a few hours too even when a professional does it. It’s fairly straight so if I do wear it down, I just don’t think it will look pulled together enough.
On our wedding day, we are doing a game ride in an open land rover in our wedding attire to get some photos with the animals and a ceremony outside on the bush. My dress will be a Nicole Miller style fitted sheath. I need a hairstyle that will look great throughout the day and one where I will be able to pull it off doing myself. Right now I am thinking a sleek ballerina bun and a birdcage veil. Seeing the dress, is this a good style? Here is the dress I have my eye on:

I would love any ideas! I am really at a loss what style would work best or I would be able to do myself. I need some options!!! Please give suggestions or PIP styles that you think would work well with my situation. thanks so much!
