Alright Hive, I could really use your help! I have my hair and make-up trial tomorrow and am completely overwhelmed with the hair options. I posted my top 4 styles below. We’re aiming for a casual elegant feel for the day. My dress is Monique L’hullier Solange in latte…. its very traditional, strapless, A-line, buttons down the back and an inverted pleat train. I’ll also be wearing a beaded belt and some big chandelier earrings. Both have lots of metallics in them…. think coppers, warm whites, ivory, gold tones. I’ll be wearing a cathedral length veil with a blusher; similar style to what Chelsea Clinton wore at her wedding. Our ceremony is being held in a garden and then the reception will be at a swanky restaurant. Let me know your thoughts!! Thank you so much!!

I would pick the last one, but then I realized it’s because my hair’s texture is similar to the woman’s in the picture. I think the looks are all similar enough that you should just go for the one that matches your own hair the best so you’re working with your natural look, not fighting it.

Ooh I love these looks! Some of these were my hair inspiration photos 🙂 I ended up going for a polished bow look, kind of similar to your first choice. One of the practical reasons that I was happy with it was my hair was that it didn’t move or fall in my face at all throughout the entire day. I didn’t have to worry about how it looked during our photo session outside, or if the wind would mess it up at all. phew! One less thing to worry about.
Below are a couple of pics from my hair trial

I would be worried about the 2nd look falling out- it doesn’t look secure enough. I really like the 1st and 4th pictures though. I had problems deciding on what to do with my hair also. I wanted an effortless elegant look. This is what i ended up doing.

I loved my hair because it was out of my face, off my neck, elegant, classic, and fit my style…

I love the first one! It’s elegant, simple, and yet so romantic.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! I told my stylist that I wanted something effortlessly elegant. Of the seemingly thousand inspiration pictures I brought in, we decided on this one. What do you think??

Here are some pictures from my trial. I think its close, but it seems to be a bit off, ya know? Do you think if we did less bangs and more of a finger pulled look, it would look better? Or should I try a different style all together? I also attached a picture of my dress. I’ll be wearing a beaded belt that’s not in the picture.
