BIL is getting married. I will most be in the family photos so I’m not sure if I should get my hair done? I don’t want to outshine the bride or bridesmaids, and I guess I feel if I get my hair done professionally, I may look like I’m trying too hard?
I have no clue what I’d do with my hair though. Up? Half up? should I just wear it in a ponytail?

The only time I’ve ever gotten my hair done for a wedding is when I was in the wedding. Normally I either curl my hair or straighten it for a wedding if I am a guest. I think you could maybe get a blow out or something that isnt quite so fancy. I wouldn’t do an updo personally, I think that ventures into ‘trying too hard’ territory. Not sure where you are located but there are salons now that do just blow outs and they do a really good job.

My hair isn’t very long and is pretty flat. I’d say it’s pretty similar to this one of Jennifer Aniston, but a tad longer:
I’m not sure what I’m wearing yet either.

I would TOTALLY get my hair done. Trust me when I say it takes a LOT to outshine the bride and who cares if you look better than the bridesmaids? These pictures will be part of his collection like, forever. The pictures may be shown to generations so I would go for it. Then again, I am pretty vain. Ha.

MrsCallalily: For my wedding, my husband’s two sisters got their hair done. My sister in law was going to as well, but did her own in an updo. I thought they looked cute and didn’t think twice about it. They certainly didn’t upstage me– I was the bride. I would say as long as the bride and bridesmaids are getting their hair done professionally, there is no reason to do it or not to do it. If they are doing DIY, skip the pro hair.
If you do get your hair done, I would go for simple. This is not the time for a super fancy updo, but getting it blown out, curlled, or in a simple updo (Which is harder to do than it seems) would be absolutely fine.
ETA: The reason everyone got their hair done for mine was that it was a July wedding in Washington, DC. Wearing your hair down was not an option. I cannot think of a guest whose hair was long enough to pull up who didn’t wear it up. It was hot.

And even if the bride and maids are NOT getting their hair done, you can still have yours done, I mean it is their choice? It takes more than hair to outshine the bride and the party – that’s why they dress the part, etc.
