Hair up! I only plan to get my hair done once in the morning. Hair up will keep the shape better.

llussier:  +1. I’m planning on getting my hair done similar to these.

Plus my Fiance loves my hair down but I don’t want it all down for fear of it going completely flat by the end of the night.

mrsreardon2bee:  i always have my hair in a bun because of my job. I most likely will do a half updo.

mrsreardon2bee:  I wore my hair in an elaborate braid. I didn’t want a standard updo, as I often wear my hair in some kind of a bun anyway, and the previous time I’ve had my hair done for an event have all been updos. My hair is also pretty thick and really long, and I wanted to show that off to an extent.

I wanted something a little different for our wedding, but didn’t want to risk wearing it down, as my hair’s favourite hobby is tangling. Also, my hair won’t hold a curl for very long, so that limited my options somewhat too.

I also have long hair and almost always wear it down in everyday life.  But, I’m going to wear mine up.  In everyday life I’m not dressed up in an elaborate and expensive gown.  I think updos look more polished and formal than hair that’s down.  

I had my hair in a full updo as a bridesmaid last year.  The bride really wanted us to have all our hair up, but some bridesmaids resisted and did half up or down and sideswept.  I felt like my updo looked a lot better with the formal feel of the event, and made dancing and moving around outside in the wind so much easier. It was also super comfortable and secure, which I attribute to the stylist using hairties in addition to bobby pins.  Just using bobby pins makes it heavy, because you need to use so much.

Some of us are having casual weddings, so casual hair looks more appropriate in my opinion. And not everyone’s hair becomes “stringy” when left down, maybe I’m in the minority but mine has always stayed looking great if I have it styled by the right person. Go with what you are most comfortable with 🙂

I kinda want an updo but think I’ll go with half up half down down because I feel like it softens my shoulders. I’m just worried about stickiness on my neck and it frizzing.

I’m the opposite of most ladies here – my hair is almost always up in a bun. Now, I realize the updo is kind of the go-to, but I really don’t want my hair up the day of. I’m going for a half up-hair down. My hair is super thick and curly, so I’m not worried about it falling flat…just frizzing out!

Hair down!  I always thought I’d do an updo, but my gown is strapless. I recently wore a few strapless outfits and realized that hair down pairs better for a strapless gown for me. My shoulders just look weird otherwise!  Other gals look so glam with hair up and strapless gowns, but not me.  Oh well. My Maid/Matron of Honor is going to curl my hair and tame any frizzies. I’m wearing a veil too, though I haven’t decided which one yet. Our venue is outdoors and our wedding is semi-formal, so it’s not a black-tie type situation so I think hair down and curled will match perfectly.

Up for sure! Waves, curles and hair down would not look as clean and polished as hair up. But that’s the look I am going for. If you dont mind waves coming undone then down is okay. After a long day, hair down doesnt look the way it started. Unless you have a hair stylist friend who will attend your wedding and can fix something if it needs fixing!

I had the same issue. I was told that I would feel the most like me if I wear my hair how I like to wear it in everyday life.  I HATE wearing my hair up, so I ended up with a down style (well- half-up to get some hair out of my face for a hot July day).  I’m sooo happy that I did.  99% of your pictures will be of you from the front (as much as we all love those gorgeous backs- myself included), and you want to feel happy and the most like you as possible.

Also, if you have straight hair and want curls, remember the curls will substract some length to your hair.
