Hey bees! I’m having a hard time deciding how I want to do my hair. I’m going for a formal look and plan on wearing a chapel or cathedral length veil. The ceremony will be in a huge (1500 people capacity) 115 year old church in October.
This is my dress:
Option #1: I love this but worry about the curls falling out and my hair looking messy
Option #2: I feel updos are the most formal and the least maintenence, but I have a round face and I’m worried my face will look fat with an updo (lol)
Option #3: very pretty but I can’t decide if this is formal or more rustic. Also unsure if I’d need extensions. I have long thick hair but would have to check with a stylist

well I can tell you that every single pic you posted uses extensions as it’s shown (even the first). But the first pic is going to be easiest to recreate without extensions. You can also do an updo without them, but your hair won’t be as “full” and you definitely need extensions for the third.

I think the second will be the easiest to re-create and is the most likely to stay put through the whole day.

I think updo if you want formal and convenient. You shouldn’t need extensions – I wanted an updo but I have thick long hair and I learned I have about 5 times too much hair to recreate the looks I like!

I just met with my hairstylist to discuss hairstyles. She said unless you have hair that holds a curl very very well, do not do your hair down! She said she has done weddings where the bride wants her hair down and also has finer hair-its always a recipie for flat hair. I love the simple updo 🙂

The third type of style made me sit up and go WOW, but yeah, if your hair won’t cooperate and hold the curl then it’s tricky.
Also go charge your phone, it’s stressing me out 😉

Thanks bees! I think I’ll go get a quick up do sometime soon (maybe for another wedding) and see if I can get used to the idea of wearing my hair up.
