    @scqt13:  I felt more me with my hair down and knew I wanted to wear it down….but it was pinned back on the sides so I guess it was kinda half up/down

    I love all your inspiration pics by the way! Maybe you can have 2 trials….1 up do and 1 down and see which you like best!

    This was right before putting on the dress

    Before my hair/makeup trial I was planning on wearing my hair down because that just felt more me, but the more I talked with the stylist and my MOH I realized it would be much easier to have it up. Our ceremony is outside so there could be wind to deal with and I love to dance so I know I’ll be sweaty.

    The stylist did a great job with my up-do and I’m really excited to wear it on my wedding day. I’m less excited about taking out with 27+ bobby pins, but oh well.

     I usually wear my hair down, but for the wedding I think an up-do is more formal. I plan to wear my hair like above for my ceremony and then change it to a half up/half down for the reception like below. Both photos are by my hair/makeup team so I’m excited :)

    @weddingbound:  Ahhhh I LOVE your hair!!! I wish i could do that but my hair is just not that long and it really tight-curls-curly.  What was the back of your hair like?  do you have a pic?

    @LizzyR:  The only pic I have of the back is when I went for a hair trial but on the wedding day I don’t have a view of the back.  I do have a side view thou.

    @scqt13:  I’ve never seen a down do that didn’t look at least a little bedraggled by the end of the wedding. I went for up and it still looked almost perfect when I took it down for bed.

    @scqt13:  Ok, I HATE how I look with my hair “up” although I didn’t want it to become flat or frizzy because of the weather or because I was sweating haha gross I know…and I also thought if it were down I wouldn’t feel like it was “secure” and always looking it’s best. So I decided to go with a low updo.

    There was still enough hair showing in the front that I didn’t feel naked like I usually do with my hair up or pulled back.

    You just have to go with what you feel most comfortable with, good luck! :)
