    I think that by the time you are actually getting married the “hair trial” look will have fallen to look like your “DIY” style that you prefer.  If you start with the DIY style, I think you will end up with pin straight hair!

    Unless your hair is rock hair with spray and there is zero wind and humidity, I think that first style will end up really flat after not that long. Plus if you’re not very good at styling I think the stress of doing it yourself on your wedding day is not an added stress you need.

    I agree with PP. I love playing around with my hair, but I do not want to stress about it on the big day. However, if you aren’t happy with the trial, speak up! The stylist wants you to be happy. It might be worth doing another trial if you are so unhappy!

    I would talk to the stylist who did the trial.  Plus, as PPs have said, the trial look may well relax into closer to the DIY look.  How well does your hair hold curls?

    @lucy33:  I like everything about your DIY hair and makeup better.  You’re stunning without all the makeup (and honestly, I think you look much younger without all that) and although the hair in the second picture looks nice, you look more like “you” in the first one.  Not that I know you, but that’s just the vibe coming off the pics, if that makes sense…

    Bye the way, your dress is beautiful, too…

    @lucy33:  I voted on the last one and the only reason why is because I think a hair stylist would be able to make your look last, and I’ve photographed a few weddings where the bride has done her own hair and it always stresses her out to get it perfectly.
