im doing my own hair and makeup for the big day, and this is my first go at my hair! Since doing it, I’ve decided on pink pearl accents instead of the flowers, as well as a headpiece (not shown here), but this is the general idea. I’m now contemplating whether I should bring the braid more over to one side so I can show of the back of my dress more, which is very intricate. Any thoughts and opinions would be great, and on that note, does anyone have any hairspray recommendations that will hold your hair all. Ugh this but not make it look like you have on a pound of hairspray?!

Holy crap I’m impressed you were able to do that yourself! The best updo I can do is a pony tail! I do think it will look more romantic swept to the side, but it looks great as is. I agree that pearls will look better than the flowers, not a huge fan of those.

Omg, you look like Rapunzel! Love it!

Can you pull the braid apart a bit and pin it under to make a pseudo-bun? Will be more of a “wedding” look.

Oh my god! I can’t believe you did that yourself. It looks amazing. I like the flowers but I’d like to see the pearls for comparison. Good job.
I love a side braid but you could always just pull it to one side.

I’m so impressed with your styling skills. Please don’t pin or tuck any of that beautiful hair under. 🙂 Braid is lovely as is. Maybe keep one flower…not sure it depends on how the pearls look.

Wow that is impressive that you did that yourself! It looks beautiful!
The only thing I can suggest in addition is perhaps some backcombing at the crown before you begin the style to create some volume which will be slightly visible from front on. I find a lot of hair styles look great from the back but slightly plain at the front, whereas the backcombing gives it a bit of oompth on the front view/photos.

Wow!!! I’m really impressed! I like it how you have it now, but if you want to have it go to the side more to show off the back of your dress, that makes sense! Great job!!

Wow thank you everyone!
I am hoping to give it another go this weekend with the pearls and headpiece, so I will post here again – also just realized all the pics are sideways, so I’ll try to get them facing the right way in my next post!

I actually tried pinning it up but wasnt a fan – I’m going for a more bohemian, romantic look.
I had this exact thought myself – I’m going to give that a try this weekend to give it that extra oomph on top!
Gonna try the side braid this weekend too!
Thanks again bees – can’t wait to post some more pics on my next go!
