go with what makes you feel pretty! If there was a force in the universe that would make my hair flat and smooth like yours I would wear it down too!

I might also keep my hair just the way it is, but I envy your hair! It’s so beautiful and looks thick! I think doing it natural is the way to go for you. Think of you in a beautiful dress with a veil-you don’t look ‘un-done’ at all, you’ll look like you as a beautiful, naturally stunning bride. I dislike brides that get too ‘prettied up’ for the big day. It ends up looking too much or not yourself. I say GO FOR IT!

I can completely relate! I wear my hair down every single day… I’m pretty fortunate in the well-behaving hair department! I feel like an updo just isn’t me, but I worry that having it down is too casual.. Sigh.

Let’s start a trend VM! lol I think wearing your hair down will look great! Are you wearing a veil or some sort of hair accessory?

I feel ya Virginia!  I think you do have great hair and should wear it au natural if you want to! Maybe you add some sort of accessory to your hair, like a pretty pin or some sort of hairpiece.

i’m struggling with this myself b/c I still want to feel like myself and not overdone on my day.  I’ve gotten an updo once in my life (prom) and it wasn’t me! 

Good luck!!

You have beautiful hair!  I would just wear it au naturel lol.  Are you wearing a veil or anything like that? Just to wear a touch of weddingness? I am happy that I wore my hair down, and pretty natural because I don’t look like someone else, or someone I’m not in my wedding photos.  🙂

Are you wearing a veil or some other kind of headpiece? Of so, then you won’t look undone. Well, you won’t look undone regardless, but you’ll still look “bridal.”

I’m wearing my hair pretty au naturel too. This is what my hair looks like (or will look like once I get it to that length again. I’ve got about 4 inches to go.

(sorry that the only photo I have of my long hair is one in which I’m shoving an In-N-Out burger in my face)

And this is what I want my hair to look like:

Very similar to my regular hair, just a lot neater and prettier.

Oh my gosh VirginaMarie, your hair is beautiful.  I think you should wear it down.. If you want to dress is up, you could try some loose waves.

I am doing my hair au natural as well…just because I never wear my hair up…or curl my hair…so why do it for our wedding…

Question: How do you attach a veil if you are wearing your hair down?

I think the majority of brides are overdone, both in the hair and makeup departments, and end up not looking like themselves. My fiance mentioned that he hopes I don’t wear too much makeup or overdo my hair because he thinks I’m beautiful naturally. Yes, he’s sweet.

I’m sure your fiance thinks your gorgeous with your hair down, too. GO FOR IT sister!

… and I agree with the PPs… your hair is very pretty. Rock it!
