    freshflowers:  I think it all depends on the rest of your look and the feel of your wedding.

    I am a ponytail girl, people rarely see my with my hair down, and I dont even thin I will be casual enough for one on my wedding day.

    Honestly I’d look for some sort of updo. But perhaps some inspiration pics could sway me.

    freshflowers:  I think those kinds of ponytails look lovely. Especially for a less formal wedding. If you’re comfortable with it, go for it.

    I think the third look is bridal enough. You just need some “oomph” in the back to make it more special than a regular “I’ve got sweat on my neck” hitting the gym ponytail. The waves make it very charming. You could also do tiny braids along the side of the head(not overboard! maybe one or two) to give it a bohemian babe look?

    I think it’s fine as long as you have it look, like, naturally teased, like the first and third pictures.  The woman in the second picture looks like something’s in her hair giving it that shape, which I think looks weird.  Is that Jessica Biel in the first one?  She looks hot.

    freshflowers:  it depends how it’s done! My hair definitely had a ponytail element:

    I wore a  flower hair thing on the other side. I think it was pretty dressy!

    I think rocking a pony is a great idea, especially for a more laidback wedding. Olivia Palermo (total fashion goddess!!) just wore a pony for her wedding 🙂 Personally, I love the first inspiration pic you posted, or the second if it was a bit less polished.

    I think all of the pics you posted are lovely.  I’m a ponytail girl too, so I may be a bit biased.

    It could definitely work.  I like your 2nd and 3rd and also Julies’.
