So… today I decided to really get an idea of my Big Day look.. full hair (w/o flower), make up, and dress (I’m doing my own so I thought it was time)
I had SOOOOOOOOOO much trouble with my hair and have decided that I hate it!
I got all sweaty and it wouldn’t “sweep” right over my forehead
My make-up works but not in love with it..
and my dress….. I still need a few alterations but otherwise like it
Needless to say I’m feeling pretty discouraged about my “bridal” look so I thought that maybe I was just being too eh about it and thought some “hive” support was needed…. so here goes
I’ll be wearing this 4″ flower in my hair as a “fascinator” of whatever the heck it is
I’m think that this should help the “casual” hair…

I think your makeup looks amazing, and your dress is so pretty! I would maybe fool around with some more hairstyles. Maybe a more defined side ponytail?
Don’t be so hard on yourself! You’re gorgeous!

I think you look adorable. Remember that you are your own worst critic. As far as the hair, maybe talk to a stylist about how to get the “swoop” you’re looking for, or a youtube tutorial or something. (Not sure what you’ve done or if you are a stylist yourself). From here your makeup looks really nice and your dress is adorable! I think maybe you were just frustrated with your hair. <– Trust me, I get that. haha.

I think you put up a post about your hair before and I thought it looked to casual. I still do. It looks like you are just trying on your dress here and that nothing else happened. sorry.

I think you look wonderful! Your dress is gorgeous, your accessories are perfect, your makeup is lovely and your hair is really pretty. I can see how you might not be satisfied with your hair; it does look a bit informal for the rest of your look. I say just keep playing with it until you’re happy.

Love your bouquet. Love your dress. And your makeup is stunning.
I like where you are going with your hair. Are extensions an option? Maybe with a little more hair you could get the look you want. But I’m guessing that the sweat played a part in it not cooperating.
And since your hair was being stupid, then you start to think the rest of it looks awful. We all go through that. Just take a step back and try again in a few days.

Thanks ladies… I’m REALLY stumped about my hair.
I guess the length would be considered “short” still so MOST “bridal” options are out
I don’t want an up-do (already had one before & it’s just too costly),
@mwitter80 yea I’m really not happy with my hair.. lol
@Ms. Meowerson I actually LOVE youtube tutorials for eye make up & started following Mrs. Rainbows “Ace Your Face (pt 1)” for my foundation and really love it!
@In the media I’ve really thought about extensions but at this late in the game, even doing them myself, their out of budget. I wouldn’t even know where to start on the how-to if I could afford them =(

Your dress is gorgeous and the makeup looks lovely! I don’t think the hairstyle is bad, but it is a bit casual.

I think everything is 100% perfect and gorgeous, but your hair could use some tweaking, like you mentioned. I think you need a little more volume on top so your hair doesn’t look like it’s so flat against your head. That would also probably help with the way your hair lays over your forehead.

edited to add the flower I’ll wear….
think it’ll be “enough” to dress up the “casual”?

I personally think you look gorgeous!! Seriously, I love your dress. And just a helpful tip with the sweeping look of hair over your forehead, take a blowdryer on cool and blow your bangs/front of your hair forward. Then brush it and style how you want. This will add a bit of volume to allow the hair to sweep better and it will sit further forward. Good luck, you dress is amazing, btw!
