Natural Wedding Hair - Help!

8:25:00 AM 4 Comments A+ a-

My pending nuptials are only 4 months away and the panic about my hair is settling in. While trying on my dress and veil this weekend, my mom and aunt suggested that I straighten my hair for my big day.
Not even happening.

After I politely yet firmly declined (trust me I am not straightening my Georgia), I informed them that I have every intention of wearing my curly locs on my big day. Now, how I want to actually style them is beyond me. I plan on testing out a few styles over the next few months but I still feel pretty stuck. If you have any recommendations or suggestions, I am totally open to hearing them them. Here are my requirements:

  1. My hair must have texture so either a braid out or twist is out needed.
  2. My veil is long so I want to wear my hair down although I am open to a partially up-do if it looks good.
  3. The style must be simple and easy to do since I will be doing my own hair.
  4. The style must be versatile, meaning I can wear it down today and put it up later that night.

Ready? Set? Go!

OMG! I had no idea you were getting married. Congrats!! What about a rod set? I think that would look really pretty.

Do you want to wear it up? Or do you want to look like you do daily? (only your most fabulous self ;-)

It depends on what you are comfortable with. It is YOUR wedding! Is your veil a clip on veil or does it have other components like a tiara or a decorative clip?

You can do a twist out the night before and take them out that morning and fluff it a little, pull one side back and use that "line" to place you veil. You can do a flat twist in the front to hold the front back and place your veil in that way. What are you leaning more towards?

They each have flowers but it's a starting point :-)

@Candice - Thanks girl! I thought everyone knew by now :)

@kayc - thanks!I've actually been leaving towards wearing a flower in my hair but I'm open to suggestions for other accessories.
