    Is the wedding very informal?  That’s the only thing that would cause concern for me.  But if it’s a semiformal or formal affair, as long as you’re not wearing white 🙂 I don’t think you have much to worry about!

    I don’t think it’s a big deal at all.  It’s not like you’re trying to get it done with the bridal party or anything like that. 

    Plus, what a great way to figure out if the style lasts the whole night, how the make-up does, etc.  I think it’s a great idea.

    i think it’s a great idea, assuming your weddings are the same formality or hers is not less formal than yours. depending on what you wear, you can tone things down if you’re worried about overshadowing the bride.

    Sure.  I agree with everyone else about keeping certain things in mind, but I can’t see why not.  One little thing…. if it were me, I probably wouldn’t mention it to the other guests (not that there’s anything wrong, but you know how some people love to make drama).  I would just leave them thinking I look fabulous of my own accord.  😀 Good luck!

    I don’t think you’d be offending anyone, you’d just have a great do.

    I did this in May.  I think it is really nice to look well-polished for a friend’s wedding and this will be appreciated not looked down upon.

    No shame in looking fabulous at someone else’s gig.

    I had those exact same photos as my inspiration pics!!!  the same ones!!!! YES! Here’s what I ended up with and you can find more in my recaps.

    I was picture a big, curly updo and at that I would say no. But, this is a relatively classy hairstyle and I think it would look wonderful with a cocktail dress. Sans tiara, perhaps "Tongue. As long as you don’t show up super formal and it’s really casual, and even then, it’s simply an "out of place" thing…i wouldn’t wear a gown to a casual wedding.

    I had the exact same pics too, and here’s how mine ended up.  We decided to play on my own curls, so it’s a little curlier than the pics, but the idea is the same.

    Anyway, go for it! Hair trials are expensive, why not put it to good use!

    I love getting dolled up for weddings.  I don’t think it should be a problem.  Post a picture for us once you get it done so we can see how it went.

    If you are sure you would have time, then go for it. The style you chose doesn’t compete with the bride or her attendants.
