It’s great!! And I agree with you, hair down with an illusion dress is hard to make work. Are you having a veil? Where will it stick in?

very pretty 🙂

Just wondering how long your hair is?

It’s a great style! In terms of your trial, I love the hair on the sides, but she could perhaps add just a little more volume to the back. Also, could she make the back portion look a little less like big loops? I think that would improve it even further.

I’ll also wear an illusion dress and wear my hair up – it would be such a pity to cover up the neckline!

Love your hair in the pictures. What does it look like down? Just out of curiosity…

@whitums:  I want to be completely honest because you deserve to look your most beautiful on your big day. I don’t like it either. I wish I did, and I was trying to find ways that I did, but I don’t. I think it looks too restrictive. I also have fine hair and opted for half up, half down because I find it looks so romantic. I think if you left some pieces framing your face, it would make all the difference in the world!

Gorgeous! I love it down, too, but the updo style is so pretty.

Love it!

I have to say, I really like the messy look but I think most dont and it won’t age well. When your kids look at pics it will just look like your slept in your wedding hair.

@whitums: Well, I wouldn’t have described it using the word “pancakeness” – but it makes sense that it’s a little flat if there was no produce in it. 🙂 I think it will end up looking great with those changes. I have fine hear myself and feel much more comfortable wearing it up for my wedding day. That way I don’t have to worry about curls falling out or hair in my mouth if it’s windy!

I think it’s beautiful. Make sure you like it front the front, as that’s what all of the pictures will show 🙂

The second style is AMAZING. I’m not an updo girl either. It doens’t suit my free, happy spirited personality. Do what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful (:

I think the updo on you is much more sophisticated, while the 2nd pic looks like a more juvenile hairstyle, IMO. However it looks a bit too perfect to me. I get that the first one might be too messy, but I feel like you need some pieces hanging out around the front or something. Its just so tight looking.

 

I think it would be pretty if your hairstylist incorporated a little more of the fishtail braid onto the side the way it is in the picture too. That is probably my favorite part of that hairstyle.
