I threw mine up in a clip at the reception and it didn’t look that great, so I would have a plan b for sure if you wear it down

@arenyth: Got one word for you: Extensions! Wink My hair’s past my waist normally also but I wore temporary extensions for fullness and so I don’t lose length from the curls.

I’m on the fence about wearing my hair all up or half up/half down. My Fiance wants my hair down so I think I’m going to wear it that way. I always pictured my hair up on my wedding day, but I guess I can do this one little thing for him!

I regret it a little bit.  There are some photos were a piece of my hair flew away and looked totally stupid.  I don’t know why no one told me or fixed it!  I can’t even look at those pics and I’m hoping the photog can edit them.  My hair did not turn out exactly how I wanted, partly because my hair lady put so much gunk in it to make sure it stayed.  It was overkill and actually weighed it down more.

Thanks! Here is the spray they used.  I bought it and took it with me to the salon, as one girl who did a hair trial used it and swore by it.  It was NOT sticky in the least. Trust me, lasted all day. ENJOY Styling Spray.  You would never know there was spray in my hair. I did use a little regular hair spray on my bangs though.

I’m wearing my hair half-up and half-down; but I noticed, a lot of brides really do choose to put the whole thing up.  I figured my face wouldn’t be the type that would look with all the hair up – so I’m willing to take the risk (and hope for the best) as well as trust my hair stylist. 

But, I believe that on your wedding day you should feel the most beautiful that you’ve ever felt.  lol  Call me cheesy.  Whichever hairstyle that it is …. do it.  😉

I know it sounds bad, but if we did it for comfor – I’d be getting married in sweat pants.  Tongue out

I wore mine 1/2 up and 1/2 down.  My wedding was in October so the weather wasn’t that warm, but I had NO issues with it staying curled, nor did I when I had my hair trial in August.  Here’s mine before the wedding:

And about an hour after the wedding:

I think it depends on your hair. My daughter has great thick hair and also used extensions for her wedding. It stormed all morning and cleared up soon before the ceremony, but it was still humid and sticky outside. Her walking down the aisle pictures were great, but in a half hour, most of the curls had flopped and gone frizzy. She had her stylist friend there all day,so they ended up pinning it up for the reception. It always helps to have Plan B.

I needed to have my hair pulled back out of my face but wanted some down on my shoulders.

I think it depends a lot on the season/part of the country. I almost wore my hair down but I’m so glad I didn’t. Between all the hugging and dancing and the fact that it rained and was humid I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have worked and would have gotten stringy. It’s nice when it’s all up that you don’t have to be checking up on it all night!

I’m so thankful for these posts! I am also very undecided about this. I have very long (waist length) hair which is fine and quite thin. It does take a curl very well but because of the length it’s eventually going to drop somewhat. My biggest concern is that #1 I’ll be having an outdoor ceremony so the wind may not be my friend and #2 after a few hours it may just end up looking a bit “drab” and messy… whereas an updo would hopefully look the same from the morning right through to the evening *sigh*

I have considered wearing it down for my ceremony/photos with my veil (I love the look of hair down with a veil)… and then having a friend (who is a qualified hairdresser) help me to create an up-do for the reception with some nice flowers.

arenyth your dress is gorgeous and I think half up/half down would work really well for the look you’re aiming for In My Humble Opinion 🙂 That may be a nice compromise for you?

Yeah- it wouldnt work for me! I love my hair down and curled but it just doesnt stay very long and the end result isnt pretty like @meliss ! (im jealous!) Ill probably do a messy updo instead 🙁
