I’ve always been a fan of the Betty Page style.  Unfortunately, I have a strong cowlick, so I can’t pull of those across-the-forehead bangs Undecided.

Here’s some inspriational pics of Rockabilly ‘dos.

@Statutory Grape: That ones my favorite too. I have long, curly hair too (just past bra-strap length) so I figured we’d have similar taste in hair. lol. I have a ton more inspiration pics, but most of them are buns or chignons, which you said you didnt want.

@Statutory Grape:

My daughter did hers like the first one,-and wore a bird-cage veil, and it looked spectacular!!!

@Statutory Grape: Im exactly the opposite. My hair is up 90% of the time. My dad is mixed, so my hair is insanely thick and I live in Missouri, there the humidity makes my hair a huge burden. I cant stand my sweaty neck and frizzy hair when I wear it down.

From your posts, it seems like our wedding are going for a similar feel. We’re doing a sort of vampy/pinup/rockabilly/50s thing.

@Statutory Grape: We’re not going full-on rockabilly either. Just some elements here and there…. lots of polka dots. lol. As for Halloween, yeah! We totally picked it because it was Halloween. We’re doing some of our pics in a nearby haunted house (Ive actually worked there for the past 2 years), we’re doing our candy buffet with a kind of “trick-or-treat” feel, I’m in theatre and I’m going to borrow a bunch of small costumes props from my university (like hats, coats, just fun stuff) for people to wear around since we didnt want full-on costumes. Theres some other stuff I really cant remember right now. We wanted to incorporate the holiday without it being a Halloween party.

My fiance soo wanted a Halloween wedding.  But I would be smack dab in the middle of my first semster in grad school.  I would probably implode from stress if we did that.
