Good question. I’m planning on doing a sunrise ceremony and late evening reception, so would like to also have a hair change.

If you have a long (3+ hour) gap between ceremony and reception, then I think this could work. Otherwise, I wouldn’t want to give up time with guests just to redo hair.

@Charbelle:  I haven’t decided!  I’m thinking down to up.

It never occurred to me because I didn’t get changed. Also, I too have fairly fine hair although there’s lots of it and I know that if I have my hair put up it doesn’t just come down again and look any sense because of the amount of product and shape it’ll have got into. At best it’d need straighteners/tongs to restyle it again. So you might find that you need more time than you think to create a successful evening look. Ultimately, you need to decide just how much of your own wedding you want to miss out on for the sake of a hair do.

I’m going from up to down for mine! My hair will be pulled up in a way that I can just remove the back bottom pins and my hair will become a half updo for the reception. It was easier than having my hair dresser stay over and taking time away from photos and our guests!

Knowing how much time, how much and how many styling products, and how many bobby pins were involved in a stylist creating any up-dos that I have had, and what my hair has looked and felt like when I’ve taken these up-dos out, I cannot even imagine trying to do this. When I’ve taken out any professional up-dos that I’ve had, I’ve had sticky, crunchy (from the styling products) hair that was sticking up and out all over the place. I couldn’t wait to wash my hair.

However, I’m sure that, if someone has long enough hair and wants a very soft, loose up-do that doesn’t require the use of all of that product, and there is time for the stylist to create the second look, then it probably could be done rather quickly and with great results.

i wanted to go from down to up for my wedding .i love my long curly hair down but it can be a lot to manage and if i am dancing all night it gets really hot….. decided in the end to just get the updo right away because the time and money (i would have had to pay hairdresser ro sit around between looks) just wasnt goi.g to be worth the stress and rush.

now if i had a really long gap…..i think i.would have been convinced to switch it up but still down to up

Sure it can be done, but I think it’s easier to accomplish in reverse….from down to up. Due to the rain and humidity on my daughter’s wedding day (plus the use of extensions), the curls in her flopped. Her stylist was also a guest, so she redid her hair in record time.

@Charbelle:  I kind of inadvertently tried this the day of my hair trial.  I wanted to give an updo a shot but I had boudoir photos later that day and wanted my hair down.  The updo had some curl to it, and my hair is naturally curly so it definitely likes to curl, but after taking out the pins and letting it down it stayed pretty all day (and into the next, showering make me sad).  When you go to your trial you can always get it done in an updo and then see how it goes after you let it down.  Hope that helps!
