1. your hair is gorgeous
2. is your hair stylist available between ceremony/reception? I think you could definitely do both– the long one for the ceremony, and then put it into an updo for the reception, where you’ll likely be dancing and mingling and getting very warm. Then you won’t have to worry about the curls falling

I prefer the updo for two reasons – 1) Practicality – it’s so much easier to have an updo. You don’t have to worry about it and it’s cooler and it has less chance of curls falling out, getting caught in things and blown in the wind. 2) I, personally, thing that updo is a more classic look while the big bump in the half up look is more trendy and I prefer more classic looks for weddings.

They both look great, but I agree with PPs, I would choose based on the day. Heat, humidity, wind etc. would ruin those beautiful curls. I love the simplicity but beauty of the updo you have. I vote for the updo in the end.

clairelou29: Not sure if this was addressed yet but how does your hair hold a curl? I prefer the half up/down look, but I know for myself curls like that go flat in a few hours. Happened to my best friend and by the end of her wedding, her hair was in strings! The updo you won’t have to worry abuot.

I love the updo. Sometimes they can seem boring to me, but you (and your hair!) really pull it off. It’s classic and elegant but really fits with the style of your dress.
