I wore my hair down, danced like a maniac for hours, and my hair still looked good at the end of the night. Alas, I have no pro pics back, but I managed to find one (not totally embarrassing) photobooth shot near the end of the night that sort of shows what it looked like. Because I love the people on Weddingbee, I’ve also included a super-flattering cake-eating shot from the beginning of the night, to show you how it started. The curls fell a little, but I think it held up really well.

I wore my hair down in curls and they stayed all night – I also look better with my hair down.  I actually wished they would have fallen more!  I had my hair curled early in the morning – between 8 and 9 am for my 5:30 pm wedding and then I had my hairdresser pin the curls.  I took them out right before the ceremony and sprayed with hair spray…and they stayed all day and night and I got married in August – in Humid Atlanta!

I am planning on having a half updo half downdo for the ceremony/pictures and our first dance, after that I am having my hair stylist put my hair up for the rest of the night, I have always worn a pony tail I love long hair i just do not like my neck getting all sweaty so I plan on putting it up before I start doing a ton of dancing.

Don’t regret it at all.  I used a special styling spray that kept my curls all night into the next day!  I think I would have regretted putting it up. I heard a lot of that when I was doing hair trials from other people.

I wore mine down for our JOP wedding, lesson learned.   Will not do that again.  I will not even show you the pics, I hated how my hair looked that much.

I plan on wearing my hair similar to the styles below. It’s so pretty; I doubt I’ll regret it 🙂

@arenyth:  We were outside and even the slightest breeze jacked it up, after several hours – ugh, just not good.

@arenyth: If you are going to be near water also.  My girlfriend got married near the river and her hair was so frizzy by the end of her ceremony.  She should have told the hair dresser that and he would have put stuff in her hair to counter act it.

I’m going to wear my hair down and in a headband, but that’s because my hair is very long and curly. And it just looks the best when it’s down, not pulled back. It looks really romantic, unique, pretty…… I think I would regret wearing it UP

I wore my hair down. Here’s my hair at the beginning of the day (ceremony) and toward the end of the reception after HOURS of dancing. Yes it was sweaty and messy, the curls had come down some, but I don’t regret it one bit. It looked like my everyday self and I like that in the photos.

i would do half-up, half-down with that dress. use loreal elnett hairspray — it’s the best. if this is going to be a big source of stress on your wedding day, though, just put your hair up. it will still look great with the dress (and i would only wear a statement necklace with an updo, otherwise there’s just too much going on with your dress and hair).
