Have you tried taking the test of what kind of bride are you on brides.com? They have really cool hair photos!

I still have to pick out mine, but I think I’m going for a classic updo that’s … big and poofy. Lol. I like volume.

omg i love it! It’s classic and vintage, not matronly! The fascinator makes it very very chic. I like the bigger one…the smaller one kind of looks like ribbon on a present, sorry. The more "out there one" is way more gorgeous!

I think it looks fantastic! My only suggestion would be to give the top some height. I’m not a hairdresser so I have no idea how one would go about it, but I’m sure your person could do it. What they’ve already done is really nice 🙂

Oh!  It’s beautiful, and not matronly at all!  However, if you feel it’s matronly, even just a little bit, then I’d suggest minor changes… you don’t want to be thinking about your hair on your wedding day.  Really. 

{But I think it’s pretty effing rocking.}

I think your hair looks great! I’m sure with the dress it’ll look different than with regular clothes. I think it’s pinned up to be loose and romantic, not matronly. I do agree that some pouf in the top would make it look more "bridal" and less ordinary from the front.

Wow!!! After being through 2 hair trials with two different people already, I think your hair ROCKS. I don’t think it looks matronly at all– its very sophisticated and elegant and classic, yet a little modern. I really, really like it.

My one suggestion, which might make it feel less matronly from the front is to add a little volume to the top. Your hairstylist will tease the top portion of your hair slightly, and then the front part will cover the teased area, creating a little volume. Remember that most of your pictures will be taken from the front, so you want to be able to see "style" from the front.

I think its worth the money for a second trial so that you aren’t anxious about your big day, but I think your hair looks great in the pictures!

I think that’s really pretty! With or without the hair piece, you’ll look fantastic if you FEEL fantastic. Go with your gut- if you want to change it, I would. But truthfully, I don’t think you need to change a thing!

I love it. I kinda feel like the hair pieces cover up the good parts of it though. I think if they were attached to one side they would look better.

i think it looks good and i don’t know if you’re asking for opinions on this or not, but I really like the smaller fascinator (with fewer feathers)

I never would have thought matronly. It looks good, and looks good on you (most important part).

By The Way, you have a tough choice with accessories. Several of those looked really good, and that is a great hairstyle for fun accessories. I would seriously consider have two: one for the ceremony, one for reception, or even just the dancing, if that fits your event.

I don’t think it looks matronly at all. It looks beautiful– I LOVE it. It’s similar to Mrs. Cherry Pie’s wedding updo. I say go for it. It looks great with your fascinators! I also like the smaller one with less feathers if you want an opinion on that too.
