In case you missed my first (and I thought only!) entry in the hair drama journal, click here for some background. Long story short: Mr. B made it clear to me that he does not want my hair fully up, even though I love having an updo. I then bought a dress that led me to believe my hair needs to be up. I thought I could get away with it.
Flash forward to a few days ago: I was messing around with my hair, putting it up in crazy styles, and asking Mr. B what he would do if I walked down the aisle like that. At one point he very seriously said he knew I would not “do that to him” and that he knew I would have my hair “showing in some way.” Cue panic. What?! Why did I think he would be OK with my hair being up?!
Well, now I am back to the drawing board and I need some help. My original compromise style inspiration was this:
I do not plan on showing my dress but I will tell you this—it has a very pretty keyhole back, similar to this:

I cannot have my hair covering that beautiful back, can I? But apparently I cannot wear it up. So what am I supposed to do? Well, the idea hit me—what about a curly side ponytail? Let’s look at some inspiration:

Or I could just have it all technically “down” but curled and to the side like this:

What do you guys think? Can I still wear a veil if my hair is down-ish like these? Is there some compromise I am missing? Am I going to be completely annoyed with my hair all day and worry about it frizzing, un-curling, getting in my way, and just generally being a pain in my side? (That last one was rhetorical. I know the answer.)
