When I went dress shopping months ago, I tried on a cathedral length single-layer veil and fell in LOVE. Since then, I had a freak-out moment with my hair and decided I would cut it all off. BIG MISTAKE. Now my hair is really thick and I’ve desperately tried growing it out, but it’s only half-way down my neck. I have NO clue what to do with it and my bridal portraits are in a WEEK! EEK! Does anyone have any ideas??? Please please help.

what about hair extensions?

Are extensions a possibility? Maybe ask your hair stylist for some ideas of how to wear your hair.

short hair can still go up!!
Book yourself an appt with a good stylist who you trust, tell her to stock up on bobbypins, and pop a few tylenol, because you’ll probably get stuck a few times, haha. Oh, and bring the veil (maybe that goes without saying) so she can work with it.
Otherwise what about extensions? Just for the photos (and big day if you really want)
Your other option is … well, if it really doesn’t look good together, you might consider a different veil; it’s hard to go wrong with a birdcage, hehe… they’re my favorite. BUT a really different look than what the cathedral would give you.

I agree–extensions and/or an updo. People just should not make drastic hair decisions after getting engaged. 😉 Good luck!

Don’t worry. Ask any professional. I’m sure they’ll help you out with either extensions or and appropriate hairstyle 🙂

Long veils can still look great with short hair, you just need the right stylist. I completely agree with daydreamwanderer and lizaan! My sister-in-law had a jaw-length bob and she wore a gorgeous mantilla veil. Her stylists worked wonders and her bridal portraits are fab. Put your hair up! Hair extensions are expensive and can be a pain, so if that’s not for you then there’s definitly still a great solution out there. Book your appointment now, or book two – that way you’ll have even more options! I’m sure you’re portraits will end up looking great- remember to come back and post them!

Another suggestion….one of my friends who has a short style got married recently and she also had a cathedral length veil. She had her stylist put a braid the width of the comb attached to the veil across the top of her head and anchor it with pins. This is where the comb attached to her veil was inserted. She was able to wear her short style and not worry about her veil sliding off…and the braid wasn’t visible.
