I have been dragging my feet on booking someone for hair and makeup for so long (note to brides: don’t put it off; don’t put anything off, actually). But I’ve got a trial set up this week with a sister team of artists I’m really excited about. They asked me to send them photos of some inspiration for my wedding day look, which means, you know, I have to make decisions. Not the easiest task for me.
Thankfully when it comes to hair, I seem to have a good grip on what I like and don’t like. I’m a firm believer in the idea of staying true to who you are on your wedding day. Nine days out of 10, my hair is pulled up or back and just a little bit messy, so I know I’m not going to feel comfortable with an impeccably polished and intricate updo. Instead, I searched for photos of messy and edgy ponytails and bridal buns with lots of texture at the top and sides.
