    I’m going with a classic chignon/low bun type thing. I have really really long hair and I don’t want to deal with it in my face or on my neck all day. It would just get gross after 5 minutes.

    my hairdresser wants me to have it up, my FH wants me to have it down. But I dont want to have it down much as were we are getting married is really windy, and I dont want her to use a bottle of hairspray to keep it down 🙁

    DECISIONS!

    yeah i am feeling the same way! i think i’m going to try to do half-up, half-down but i’m not sure i have enough hair to make it worth it and i don’t know how much its really going to grow before august. (we have the same date!) considering extensions? i also worry about having it down and curled and it not keeping the curl at all b/c of the heat.

    i have my first hair trial friday, so i’m going to ask her what she thinks given the probable humidity etc  and what would look best. i love intricate up dos but i think my face is a little too round for it too look good enough for my wedding day. we’ll see what happens….

    I’ll share my two inspiration pics with you…this is my favorite:

    with just a touch of this added in:

     

    What is the style of your dress, though? I think the hairstyle should really tie into the dress style…

    I wore my hair in a chigon and grew out my bangs. I didn’t want to have sweaty hair plastered to my forehead and I didn’t want an half-fro that I would certainly get with the humidity. I would have liked half up half down, but it wasn’t practical. good luck!

    I’m doing a low off-center bun that’s made up of all curls.  My hair is really thick and frizzy so up is best for me in August!

    I like wearing my hair down but it’s too gross in August in Nebraska for that. But I don’t like my hair pulled straight back or pulled really tight and I have a lot of hair so it hurts my head to have it put up too high.

    So I’m thinking about going for the Eva Longoria/Taylor Swift low up-do, with a side part/sideswept bangs. This way I keep it soft and low so hopefully I won’t have a headache by the end of the day. ^_^

    I’m so torn on this!  I always choose updos because I have long, fine hair, but I want to do it down for my wedding.  I would hate it if the curl fell out, but I plan to do a trial and maybe that will help me decide.  I love the Eva/Taylor pics though!

    @sgarrison LOVE that dress….almost bought it, it was my final two!! The pockets are the best, I’m having some put into mine because of that dress. I nicknamed it “cupcake dress”

    @sgarrison – I feel your pain! I am getting married in Georgia and it will be incredibly hot and humid as well!! I really dont know what to do with my hair – Im guessing I will go with the loose updo because I look better with my hair down but its going to be WAY too hot!

    I got married last August in Temecula, CA (inland from San Diego) and it was about 95 degrees during the day and still very warm at night.  So I opted for an updo and had a “day after” session with our phototog the next morning and wore my hair down for parts of it – to get the best of both worlds.
