Show me your wedding hair!

Recommended Posts

My mom INSISTED on a veil...I didnt want one, like you I just wanted a nice flower clip.  My compromise is to wear the veil for the ceremony and then take switch to the clip for the reception

Hmm... I'm not sure. You can check out magazines and ask a hairdresser. If not, you could always use the veil for the ceremony and then take it off and put the flower in for the reception.

 My problem is i want too much. (shocking, lol) I told FI i wasnt wearing a veil and he didnt like that too much, so i got one. Thing is i wanted a flower in my hair and to borrow my sisters hairpiece from her wedding. Can you wear a veil and still incorporate flowers?

Oh, I hope we get some pictures... I have pretty short hair, and it has to stay short (I have thin and fine hair, which means long hair is bad). I have been able to put clips in before, but it is really not easy. I am looking for pretty ideas for short hair.... so far, all i can think to do is curl it!

I was the same as you really didn't want a veil and only a hair flower but my mom insisted on the veil so I actually ended up with a cathedral length veil and a flower with a side pony and it works since the veil is so long it doesn't look cluttered and then I plan to take the veil off right after pictures and just have the flower left. when I get the flower I can take a pic for you and show you if you want.

I didn't even think about that! Thanks for sharing! I am planning on wearing a side but with a feathery hair piece -- I'll post a pic of what im trying to decide between in a bit so I can get everyones opinions!

I have thick hair as well, and, I must admit that I was hot. But I have had some nightmare up-dos. I had my hair done like in the picture once before, and I knew it worked for my curly hair. So I stuck with the sure thing.

I would love that. Thank you!

 

I have come to the realization that i am pretty much having two weddings. Actually, I am doing my hair three times if you count the TTD session. So in actuality, I need to come up with three hair styles. That really excits me tho. It means I can get a little bit of everything. I am really looking forward to seeing pics of the flower/veil combo!

i wanted a veil and flower as well and i think i pulled it off!  i wore the veil "under" my hair do and put the flower on the side.
