Wow, honestly, I like both!  I think that the soft look is so sweet and simple, yet the “serious” one was quite elegant as well.  You are just gorgeous lady, so I really would not worry about it — no matter how it turns out you will be just stunning!

I think your hair in the first and second look is exactly the look you are going for. it is very romantic and soft…you look great! I agree that your lipstick could be a little lighter….maybe something more pink?

Ahh I love it! This is quite similar to the look I want to go for. Did you take in any inspiration photos for your stylist? If so, would you mind sharing?

I agree that its a beautiful look (the 1st and 2nd pics.) Keep in mind that the real deal will be more polished than your trial. You can also ask her to go for the same look, but just a little more polished, if you’re worried about it being too messy. 

How did it hold up all day?

I think the second two pictures look much better, and the makeup is more flattering, enhancing your features. I honestly thought you didn’t have any on in the first picture. You’re better off starting out with everything a little more overdone in the beginning,unless you want to be doing touch-ups for pictures all night.

I  think the lip color is perfect on you!

I actually really like the first one! it’s a bit bohemian (and i loove that style) and romantic! and I do like the lipcolor a lot on you as well~ 😉 you can also bring the lipstick you’ll be using to retouch and ask your vendor to match it closely~

I like the look of the first picture.  I don’t think it’s too messy at all.

I really love the first one hair style and i think your lip color compliments you well. Post of a picture of your dress so maybe we can get a better picture of your look.

Woah! That dress is amazing.

I love the first hair style. I don’t think it looks messy at all– just not as “done” and stiff as many wedding hairstyles. Sometimes wedding hair can look like prom hair, you know? And yours doesnt. It looks gorgeous.

I’d just like to say though, that I think you should keep the darker lipstick. Often during a long event, much of your makeup will wear off, but if you have lipstick on that photographs well (like this does) your makeup will look fresh all night. Lipstick can really help your face out if you’ve been up all night dancing and having a blast. I wore intense red lipstick to a formal event about 3 years ago. Before I went out the door, I thought it was *way* too much, because I’m not a lipstick person. But in all the pics from that night, I look awesome! Everyone elses makeup is sliding off, but I look like I just put mine on– just something to think about.

Loooove your dress! I seem to be going against popular opinion here, but I really like your hair in the red dress pic. In the first 2 pics it seems like it is about to fall down and that would make me nervous…plus the look of it bothers my OCD side lol. I think the red dress pic is simple and classic and pretty and won’t compete with your dress. But you look gorgeous either way! 🙂

I’m loving both of the hair styles, but I say if you like the first style, go for it!

Wow you look stunning! I think you have a really classic bridal look and the low bun parted on the side is definitely the right hairstyle with your dress and veil.  Any hairstyle which is a variation on that theme will look stunning and I like both the ones you tried.

I also agree that a smokier eye (maybe grey colours?) with a pink lipstick/gloss and pink blush would suit you more than the darker lipstick.  How about makeup like eyrepye?  She has similar colouring to you and I loved her makup.
