    I decided for a down-do because my Darling Husband really liked my long hair, and my hair down.  I have horribly fine hair that never holds a curl when I curl it myself.  I have tried several different methods.  

    I had tight curls (that I didn’t like) for my hair trial.  They stayed in really well.  I even went kayaking for an hour later on that day, and they stayed really well until I washed them out. I don’t leave my hair down a lot, and suprisingly I didn’t mind my hair down when it was in a really tight curl.   

    For my wedding day I requested more wavy curls.  I mostly wanted them to stay in until the reception.  Those didn’t stay in as well, but I thought my hair stayed in okay until the reception.

    @PolkaDotLaceBride:  You are lucky your hair holds curls! My hair doesn’t hold a curl worth a crap. LOL you could always opt for an up-do for the ceremony and maybe either down or half-up do for the reception. I am not sure hot the stylist could do this but I am sure it can be done. I am wearing my hair in an up-do though I never wear my hair up because my hair doesn’t hold curls. I would also think wearing it down would depend on the level of humidity where you are getting married at. I know humidity is not nice to hair! LOL Cool

    After actually going through my wedding day, i can’t imagine having my hair down. I was so hot all the time even with my hair up. I would have melted for sure with hair on my neck.

    I’m doing an updo because my hair does not hold curls well, at all…

    @sweetpeony:  This. 

    I wore my hair up and was glad I did because I ended up being so hot throughout the day!

    I have the same issue and fine hair… I’m doing a side pony of some sort and probably adding clip in extensions: inspriation (last is another bee)

    I wore my hair down with curls and by the end of the night they were still fine. If you’re really worried maybe bring a curling iron so one of your BMs can do slight touch-ups for you.
