    Ladies,

    As I begin to plan final details (and have a mild anxiety attack every day), I wanted to ask you about what I should do with my hair for the wedding.

    I have been growing out my hair, and it is pretty long now. I sort of envisioned myself with sort of long wavy hair, maybe half up for the ceremony.

    Maybe like this (I will have a veil and flower too)

    Did any of you who wore your hair down (or mostly down) regret it? I'm afraid my hair will get stringy because of the humid salty air and wind. Everytime I go to Mexico, I always end up wearing my hair up because it is so hot as it is. It will also be in JULY!!!

    I live in Louisiana, so my hair is used to humidity but it is different in Mexico.

    In other words, I'm begining to have doubts and am thinking I should wear it up now. Thoughts?

      You could always switch it up when you get there right? I planned on wearing my hair down but at our WD, my hair looked like crap. I switched and decided to have it up the day of the wedding. I'm so glad I did because it held up so well. I have curly hair, but I was afraid my curls would frizz up or fall limp.

        I am wearing my hair pulled back in a big chignon and a veil for the ceremony and then down in loose waves for the reception.

        i have a very good friend who is a stylist who is traveling with us and will be doing my hair - we did a trial a couple months ago and figured that would be the best of both worlds for the heat.

          That's such a good idea....switch it up after ceremony. I wish I had my personal hair stylisit who could do this. I would want an updo for ceremony and loose curls for reception....oh well.

            I love you hair like that if you can withstand the weather, I have the same idea in mind - where did you get those flowers? They are perfect!

              Picture that friends episode when Monica's hair blew up when she went to the Carribean. That's the way my hair is in Mexico and it can't hold a curl for anything. So I wore my hair up and heavily sprayed to try to prevent any mishaps like frizz or the hair blowing in my face. I think half up and half down could work well.

                Well thank goodness you didn't get braids with shells to remedy that problem. :)

                  Alyssa that is awesome. I wish one of my friends was a stylist!!! I am planning to do something similar: up for the ceremony since my dress is a halter and down for the reception...to go along with a shorter dress

                      Ooohhh, I like that idea too! My sis is a fantastic hairdresser and doing my hair. I'm sure she could do something like that. We will not be able to do a trial run until a couple of days before the wedding.
