A Blonde Wedding: {Hairstyle}

I've been pouring over pics lately in hopes of nailing down exactly what hairstyle I will sport at our wedding NEXT MONTH.

Yes, let's all take a moment to let that soak in....

Next month...our wedding...it's happening....gracious be.

Whew! Anyway, I've been looking at many photos online and also consulting my hairstylist Jennifer on what to do. She is, coincidentally enough, getting married the Saturday AFTER mine and Stephen's wedding. We joked that it's a good thing that she and her fiance didn't get married on the same day as us or she wouldn't have been able to do my hair, haha!

After a lot of thought, I've decided that I'm going to wear my hair down, a 'la Kate Middleton! I just love the look of flowing, feminine locks on a girl's wedding day. I mean, it's the most dressed up you're ever going to get...might as well go equally girly with the hair, right?


I think we'll probably pull one section back, just to give the style some structure, like Carrie Underwood-Fisher's seen above and below. We'll also do loose curls all around my head, not to "curl" it per se, but really just to give it body and movement.


Thankfully, the humidity is always pretty low here in AR in September and my hair holds curl very well, so this style should work quite well.





What do y'all think? Do you think I'm making a wise hair decision?

How did you wear your hair for your wedding day? Post a pic on your blog today and leave the link in the comments field if you want to show it to me!

Be blessed, lovelies-

  2. The first one I love. I wore my hair up the day I got married and regret it! I wish I had done a more everyday style.

  5. Try out wearing it down different ways so we can see! I think I'll end up wearing my hair down, when the time comes to get married.

  6. I wore my hair up and I'm so glad I did! I got married outside in mid-May in Florida and it was H-O-T. So I think it really depends on your venue and the weather.

  7. I love the loose curls!

    I wore mine up and was really glad I did. We got married in October but it was a hot day and I would have hated to have my hair sticking to my shoulders/neck. You can see a picture of mine in my blog header.

  8. I wore my hair down and if I had to do it again I probably wouldn't. I got married in May, in Florida and it was mis...era...ble!! So hot!! My hair was a frizz ball by the end of the night!! If humidity isn't a problem, then I love the look of wearing your hair down!

  14. I wore my hair up just because I usually do and I find it more comfortable! Plus I have really awkward baby fine hair that would not look good at all down! But I really love the hairstyles you are looking at! Any would look great!

    I actually just made a video with a collection of photos from our wedding if you want to take a peek! I know an updo isn't what your thinking of but here is the link if you're interested: http://theminahanfamily.wordpress.com/2011/07/31/our-wedding-video/

  15. I love this hairstyle. I do it all the time because I can't stand my bangs sometimes when it is hot or I'm being active. I always loved J.Lo's at the awards a few years ago. Big, soft curls and a top poof.

    How fun!

  18. I like these hairstyles...very southern with the poof (I'm a TN girl, so I love a good poof!) I was going to wear my hair down, but decided to go all up because we would be dancing at the reception and I didn't want to be a sweaty mess! What if you did all down for the ceremony and pulled it up for the reception? Here's what I did for the wedding.

  19. I really love the second Carrie Underwood hairstyle!!

  20. Love these photos, and I think it is going to look graet on you! I really like Carrie's hair in the first one! For my wedding, I wore my hair in a complete updo and had been growing it out for a year for that! The heat and humidity in Florida is always through the roof, and I wanted pintucked curls with lots of hairspry to keep everything under control :) You will look beautiful no matter how you wear your hair!

  21. Your hair will look beautiful down!! :) And um.. holy wow.. NEXT MONTH?! Crazy!! I'm excited about it! As crazy as that sounds since we relaly just know each other over the interwebs!

  22. love the lil poof in the front! You'll look SO good with that! I think hair mostly down is a good choice for wedding hair. (Ok-maybe I'm biased because I wore mine down too...) ;)

  23. My favorite kind of hairstyle! When I was in a wedding last summer, I copied an Erin Andrews style from Dancing with the Stars. I'll find and email pics :)

  27. I wanted to wear my hair down.... but August in Texas would've melted it right off my head....

  29. They're all beautiful, but I especially like the first and last one!

  30. I've never been married but advice I've heard from people when being a bridesmaid and involved in this sort of thing is: Do what makes you feel REALLY pretty. It doesn't matter if you always have that hairstyle when you're going out/at home etc, just wear it how you feel most pretty- I'm sure that won't be hard for you though gorgeous lady xxx

  31. Love hair down for a wedding and the styles you chose!

  32. Wearing the hair down is such a beautiful idea, I love more natural styles!

  33. I wore mine Audrey Hepburn style! http://www.thestrengthoffaith.com/2011/06/more-wedding-pics.html

  34. That's going to look beautiful on you! Can't wait to see all the wedding photos!

  35. Of course you'll look cute however you decide to do your hair. You and our fiance are prec!! My husband isn't a fan of just the middle pulled back. I like the idea of the side or both sides pulled back with soft curls. You're gonna be beautiful;)))))

  36. I think the half up/half down style will look wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love the idea of wearing your hair down on your wedding day! You want to look like yourself, ya know!? That's why I wore mine half up/half down, with a poof *of course* as you may be able to see in my blogger profile pic :)

    Love the pics you posted, you will be gorgeous!!

  38. love, love, love. I want to do my hair half up to keep it out of my face for pictures and because I'm not a huge fan of my neck [silly I know] and want to cover it up. I love these styles it's freeing and will keep your eyes the center of attention!
