@futuremrsslp:  I have the same problem but have decided to counter act that issue and will be getting extensions for the wedding and honeymoon to give my hair more umph. You could try extensions or even clip-ins that give you a little extra and help acheive the full styles that you see everywhere.

I grew my hair as much as I could and stopped trying for lighter color for less damage — went with a nice rich color and found two clip in companies that I was interested in — foxy locks (uk brand, I believe) and hair secrets from australia – the hair secrets I went with are amazing. my reasoning was I knew I was going to have several trials between pictures and parties – and I wanted extensions that would stand up to use/washing/wearing without looking ratty — there are 3 levels with that company and for us thinner haired girls the cheaper are what matches best — both my normal and wedding stylist were AMAZED over them — but the best compliment was the drag queen hair dresser that stopped me to discuss … they really looked good and that was my confirmation.  Because I wanted an updo I haven’t had them cut into my normal hair yet, but I really cant wait for special occasions. It was one of my best purchases for the wedding cost/usage/ happiness out of if that makes sense! (oh and hair secrets has youtube videos if i recall correctly that gives coupon codes for free shipping so that saves some $!) I like shopping smart!

I also have thin hair and a baby face and wear my hair down all the time.  I got some extensions just to add thickness.  Because I never wear my hair up, I really don’t want to for the wedding.  I don’t like the look of my hair up and I think I would regret not looking like me.  I think I’ll do a half up with all of the front up because my wedding is in the summer.  I will probably have loose curls in the back, and if it falls straight it falls straight.  Which ever made up the wedding rule of curls being more formal is nuts.  Celebs wear gorgeous elegant straight hair on the red carpet all the time and it definitely doesn’t look casual.

Wish I could help… but my solution to a similar problem was to get a pixie cut! Haha.  Have you had a trial? I have fine hair too & had grown my hair to almost shoulder length but I still couldnt get it to hold and style or curl. I was at my wits end and missed my short hair so went a slightly more drastic route 😛

That’s why I decided half up (my hair dresser says she won’t do it down because it won’t last through the ceremony let alone the rest of the day).  With half up you have pins to hold it in place, but still a down look.

I have very fine hair too so I’m opting for an updo.  That way if it’s not full enough (if?  More like when!), they can add clip ins to bump up the volume.  Good luck! 🙂

I was MOH at a friend’s wedding a couple of years ago and we both have fine hair. She asked me to do her hair on the big day as I have a lot of experience with hair extensions. We went together to but a couple of hair pieces that matched her hair colour perfectly. One was a sleek bun and the other a sort of waved/curled pony which I used to make a large relaxed bun on the back of her head and tucked the veil in underneath. 

 

I agree with the other bees about an up do and using extensions, the results were exactly what she was looking for at only the price of the extensions and she kept them of course. 🙂
