I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect hairstyle for the wedding day. Here is my criteria for picking a style:
- An updo. Don’t get me wrong, I love the way a half-up style looks with a veil on, but I have to be realistic. Since it will be early September when Mr. M and I get hitched and my hair does not get along with humidity, an updo is a necessity. The last thing I want to have to worry about on that day is if my perfectly straightened hairstyle has been attacked by the frizz!
- Something that is not too much of a departure from my normal look. I want to look like myself (of course, with a little improvement). After all, that’s who Mr. M asked to marry in the first place, right? My trademark has always been my bangs, long and swept to the side. Every time I get a haircut I always come out with a slight variation of this same style. I want a wedding day style in which I can wear my bangs on the side like I always do.
- It can’t be too fussy or elaborate. I know I’m going to be really nervous and excited on the day of, and sitting in a chair for two hours while someone plays with my hair isn’t going to help calm my nerves.
- I need to be able to add my flowers in to finish off the look!
Here are the top contenders for my wedding day hairstyle:
From Martha Stewart
Here’s one with a flower. I’m loving the Russian veil attached, especially since I won’t be wearing my veil during the reception!
This style has a little more volume, and Carrie is looking gorgeous, as always.
