Oh the decisions….
I’m starting to think about how I want to wear my hair for the big day….
I wouldn’t mind it long with dramatic curls, but I keep being bought back to the idea that brides are “supposed” to wear their hair up and off of their shoulders.
Are you going with the traditional elegant updo, or for the sexier drama of wearing your hair down?
I was even thinking of wear an updo for the ceremony, and down for the reception…
Post your wedding hairstyles too.
I’m torn between somthing like this?
Or Va-Va Voom!!!

@scqt13: I felt more me with my hair down and knew I wanted to wear it down….but it was pinned back on the sides so I guess it was kinda half up/down
I love all your inspiration pics by the way! Maybe you can have 2 trials….1 up do and 1 down and see which you like best!
This was right before putting on the dress

- Wedding: March 2013 - Callanwolde Fine Arts Center
Before my hair/makeup trial I was planning on wearing my hair down because that just felt more me, but the more I talked with the stylist and my Maid/Matron of Honor I realized it would be much easier to have it up. Our ceremony is outside so there could be wind to deal with and I love to dance so I know I’ll be sweaty.
The stylist did a great job with my up-do and I’m really excited to wear it on my wedding day. I’m less excited about taking out with 27+ bobby pins, but oh well.

I usually wear my hair down, but for the wedding I think an up-do is more formal. I plan to wear my hair like above for my ceremony and then change it to a half up/half down for the reception like below. Both photos are by my hair/makeup team so I’m excited 🙂

@weddingbound: Ahhhh I LOVE your hair!!! I wish i could do that but my hair is just not that long and it really tight-curls-curly. What was the back of your hair like? do you have a pic?

@LizzyR: The only pic I have of the back is when I went for a hair trial but on the wedding day I don’t have a view of the back. I do have a side view thou.

@weddingbound: Very pretty! I see alot of brides doing the pompadore look… half up half down in a good compromise too! 🙂

@arabesque: Love the “dos”, both are very elegant. Maybe I can consider half-up half down as well…

@scqt13: I’ve never seen a down do that didn’t look at least a little bedraggled by the end of the wedding. I went for up and it still looked almost perfect when I took it down for bed.

@scqt13: Ok, I HATE how I look with my hair “up” although I didn’t want it to become flat or frizzy because of the weather or because I was sweating haha gross I know…and I also thought if it were down I wouldn’t feel like it was “secure” and always looking it’s best. So I decided to go with a low updo.
There was still enough hair showing in the front that I didn’t feel naked like I usually do with my hair up or pulled back.
You just have to go with what you feel most comfortable with, good luck! 🙂
