Wedding Bliss and Blues > My Biggest Regret Was....

Hair And Schedule

(1/3) > >>

Arila:
I had a really really good wedding, but there were two things I would change if I could go back.

1. I would have tried to do my hair closer to my typical style. I look at those pictures and think "Who is that lady with the curly hair?" My hair is straight to a fault.

2. I would have been a bit more clear about the schedule for the evening. Rather than an exuberant send-off from all of our guests, we went from mid-party to just the HC and immediate family. The plan was never to dance the night away, and it wasn't just the usual anti-climactic of something so planned and looked forward to ending, but a real let-down. I would have preferred that we be the first ones to go.


But, I still look back very fondly on the whole thing, and got a wonderful husband and in-laws out of it! :)

Lady Snowdon:
I hear you on the hair!  At the time of my wedding, I had long straight straight hair.  The stylist spent over 2 hours curling it and pinning it into curls.  Looked very pretty, took me two days to comb all the hair gel and spray and such out!  A braid would have been better, I think. 

Mental Magpie:
That is one thing I have been insistent about.  I have very long curly hair, and I intend for it to be curly at my wedding.  I want to look like me at my wedding.

Eve_Eire:
This is a problem I've been running into in bridal shops actually.  I'm trying to find a dress at the moment and the bridal shop person is always telling me to put my hair up so I can see what it will look like on the day.  When I tell them I intend to wear my hair out loose they're always aghast! "But of course you'll wear it pinned up" "it really wouldn't look right out loose with the neckline you want" I had one person insist this at me so much and then every time I was behind the curtain getting changed she would go on at my friend about how wrong I am to want my hair out loose. 

I never ever have my hair up and I want to be comfortable and look like me so I won't have my hair up on the day.  After lots of attempts at gentle persuasion to drop the subject I just had to say "Look, forget about my hair, it's not anything that needs to be decided now.  I'll pick my dress and then decide on the hair closer to the time. You need to back off."  She looked highly insulted and it may not have been the right way to say it but if I let her keep badgering me I would have ended up in tears.

I haven't had anyone that insistent but I am familiar with the phenomenon.  I just said "I have no idea what I'm doing with my hair - right now I'm focused on the dress." and was able to get them off track that way.  I also ended up putting mine in a ponytail in most shops because I just got so hot in the trying-on process.  I have a dress now, still no idea what to do with my hair but I plan to ask my hair stylist what he thinks and go from there.  He's smarter about hair than I am.
