I have my trials coming up on Sunday and I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m getting married in May and still have no idea what kind of hairstyle I want, if I want a weil or other hair accessory.. I don’t even know what kind of jewelry to buy. I look online for inspiration and can never really picture the looks on me. Nothing ever stands out for me.
Am I setting myself up for failure buy not knowing these things before my trial? Should I try to buy some stuff to bring with me before that?
Any help is appreciated. Here’s my dress:

I think you’re in the same boat as a lot of brides. So don’t fret! That’s why you’re having a hair and make up trial. There are a couple of things you may want to consider for your hair which your stylist should be great to talk to with. Some things are your face shape, theme of your wedding, do you want a more youthful or mature look, etc. You can also email your hair stylist to see what their thoughts are before the trial too if you need some professional help.
I would pick a couple of pictures of hairstyles that really pop out at you and go from there. At least you’ll narrow down some things.
In terms of the veil and jewlery, wait till after your hair and make up trial. Sometimes you’ll get a jist of what you want after the trial is done. Let us know how it turns out!

One last thing, if you do want a veil and/or jewlery in your hair, you can definitely have more detail in those items because your dress does not have a lot of embroidery or jewels on it.

I’d say try to think about some terms to describe you as a bride. Then your make-up artist can help with things like colors and applications for how to get your look. Some examples off the top of my head, do you want to be:
Or anything else you can think of.

thanks! what if i want to be all those things? LOL
It’s times like these where I’m finding it really hard to be away from my family. They are in Canada and I am in NY. All of my besties are there too.
I am so dependant on the bees right now. I can’t thank you guys enough.

Also think about how you feel the most attractive. For me, I feel far more feminine and beautiful with my hair down, but some people are the complete opposite. Think about when you feel your best, and what elements you like about hair, makeup, etc.
