Ooh ooh, me me!  I did hair up for first look, formal photos and ceremony, then half up/down for reception and informal shots.  My stylist did a great job!  Here’s so pictures.

I asked the exact same question when I was getting married. I never really go an answer.

 

What I did was put my hair in a loose low bun and just took it down for the reception. My wedding was on a beach so I got “beachy waves” look after with a laid back frizz which I didn’t mind.

I think going from up to down is hard to pull off. I am doing down for the ceremony then up for the reception (when I change into my reception dress)

@Shkragoldfish:  My Maid/Matron of Honor changed it for me.  I asked the stylist to make it as easy as possible to change, so she anchored it in the middle anddid a sidesweep of curls in the updo.  She showed my Maid/Matron of Honor how to take out the veil and which pins to remove (there were about 10, I think) to let the bottom half fall down.  It was really easy and I loved having two different looks!

Here’s some better (non professional) closeups of the updo.  Awkward faces in some, lol.
