Post your Hair and makeup ideas

Recommended Posts

I plan on putting half of my hair up - that way it is out of my face but I can still get that long hair look. It all depends on how you feel or what you want that is best. Trust me your hairstyle is the last thing that everyone is going to be looking at :)

I also have thick wavy curls and prefer my hair down. I kept going back and forth but I knew I wanted it down so I decided on doing half up and half down, just so I wouldn't have to worry about my hair being in my face. So if you want your hair down, I say go for it!

I'm getting married in Mexico where it will most likely either be windy or hot so I'm wearing it all up to not have to deal. My fiance wants me to wear it down because it's how I wear it just about every day, but he doesn't really get a vote on this one. :P

I noticed your wedding will be in Rome, so it may not be as big of a concern for you - but a lot of DW brides wear their hair up do to the heat (sweat on the back of the neck and such) as well as the wind. If those things aren't a concern for you, then you should wear it the way you feel most attractive. This will be THE most photographed day of your life, so you should look and feel beautiful without regard to what is the norm. Good luck deciding.

DH doesn't really care for UpDo's, and while it wasn't really up to him wink.gif, I love the look of big curls blowing in the wind on the beach, so that's what I did. An UpDo was a bit formal for me. Also, I didn't wear a veil, just a hair flower, so I guess I was a bit different. I don't feel a like my hair took away from the dress AT ALL. If you feel like this may happen, I would recommend a half up/half down. Good Luck, I'm sure whatever you chose will be beautiful!

I haven't really decided, but I think I am going to go with the half up idea. I love my hair down, but it tends to bother me and end up in a ponytail. My FI likes my hair both ways. Since I am getting married in Aruba and it is supposed to be windy there I figured half up would be best.

I have thick and wavy curls and have thought about wearing my hair down because I feel I look my best when it's down and do actually like it better that way, however my hair is also long so I'm afraid it may cover the dress somewhat and i want to show the dress off too. Hence, why I'm stuck.

So, what's your opinion, ladies, on the Updo vs. Downdo topic?

Or even, what style do you plan on having done for your wedding?

I forgot to mention the halfup and halfdown-do. That's also a very nice option, but I think I would take it in the direction of using a flower or something to hold up part of one side, instead of holding up a full half.
I am going to merge this thread you started with the "main" hair thread. It's better to post all info for one topic in the same thread so it makes searching easier for the next person.

It was hot, hot, hot and windy at my wedding and I want to thank everyone who advised me to wear my hair up. I told the hairstylist that I wanted something beachy but off of my neck and she ran with it!

OK ladies...so I have found the best foundation ever!!! It's Makeup Forever HD Foundation and it is amazing!!! You can get it at Sephora...I also got there microfinishing powder which sets the whole look. Check it out for sure!!

 

Couldn't agree more! This stuff is the best. I have some sun spots and this covers it completely. The HD powder sets everything in and I don't have to worry about my makeup fading for at least 6-7 hrs!

I just read all 24 pages of this thread and I am still confused!!  I loved so many of the pictures and posts on here but I still have my heart set on wearing my hair down.  My hair is super straight and can't hold a curl no matter how much hair spray is used...and i have never had an updo that i liked on me.  They just make me look like someone other than myself.  And I dont want to feel that way on my wedding day.  But I also dont want my hair blowing in my face during my ceremony.  Ahhh!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
