I think it looks very high fashion model/beachy, not unkept, in the second picture. That said, I totally feel you. I had an outdoor wedding and my hairstyle didn’t hold up either. It took me years to get over myself, haha. Just remember that you’re your own worst critic and others don’t see things the way you do.

It looks great a bit windswept, especially since you were outdoors. It would have looked odd to me if every single hair was in place. Really not something I’d spend a single brain cell worrying about. Enjoy being a Mrs.!

Honestly, I think it looks beautiful and effortless.

Can’t you ask the photographer to edit the wisps out, in some of your favorite photos? Several of the photographers I talked to said they’d do that for no charge.

A good photo editor will be able to photoshop your hair so it appears neater, but I really don’t think your hair looks messy at all. I wore my hair half down for my wedding and wind and rain turned it into a stringy mess for all my pictures. It is disappointing, but what’s done is done.

I actually had the same feeling when I saw my pictures, and had a mini panic attack about it . The back of my hair looked so messy. But a few days later I realized it’s just hair. I’m married to the love of my life now. He thought I looked beautiful, and that’s all that matters! I promise, you will get over it too!

I think your hair in the second photo suits the setting of that photo perfectly! It would look odd to me if your hair was all tight and ‘perfect’. 

As PPs have said, it really isn’t something that you should worry about, it looks fine a bit ‘messy’. Try not to let your hair get in the way of you enjoying your wedding photos. So many other things could have gone wrong on your day that this is a bit of a non issue.

breatheandrelax:  I understand where you’re coming from. You had a certain look in mind and the pictures from later on in the day aren’t living up to that vision. I think your hairdresser could have done a better job to make sure that your style was kept more intact, even with the wind, so I would have been a little disappointed too.

Now, all that said, I think you look amazing and that your hair looks great in the second photo. If there was no text in your post, I would have assumed that was the look that you were going for and it really does give off that natural wind-swept but chic vibe. I’ve also never seen a bride with a straight back on their wedding dress and absolutely 0% back fat, so massive congratulations to you for that unbelievable feat of physics too!!

My advice would be not to confuse your disappointment with your hair not looking the way you intended with thinking your hair didn’t look good, because that is not the case here. I agree with the PP who suggested that if it really bothers you, it would be quite simple to get the extra wisps edited out of your favourite photos if you would enjoy them more that way.

I’m so sorry, looking at your photos the first time should be so exciting. If it helps I wouldn’t have even noticed if you hadn’t mentioned. Ask your photog if they can photoshop some of the photos that bug you the most?

breatheandrelax:  I love your hair!!! Looks so elegant and beautiful! If it’s any consolation, my hair looked horrible! I payed 2k for “the bridal day” and by the end of our ceremony my hair looked like this .. I took my tiara off cause it just looks silly!
