1. Don't Stray from the Everyday
If you never wear your hair up, then you probably shouldn't start on your wedding day. You may not like the way you end up looking in your wedding pictures, not because you didn't look good, but because you aren't used to seeing yourself that way.
You should wear your hair how you feel most comfortable. And in cases such as my own, those of us with chipmunk cheeks will not get suckered into updo's that would make us look even more like Alvin.
2. Don't Forget to Test
Hair trials are everything. Don't be afraid to be honest with your hairstylist during this process. Now is the time to address your concerns, not the day of.
Don't forget to bring your veil or hair accessories to this appointment, they could make or break the style you chose. Also try and book your makeup trial right before this one so you get the full affect. Because when it comes to your wedding day, the less surprises the better.
3. Don't Forget About the Sweat
Lastly, if you do opt to wear your hair down or half-up, do not forget the dance floor drowned rat factor that comes along with it as the night goes on. Make sure to have a Plan B for when things get steamy.
Either have your hair stylist stick around for the reception (Praise Jesus, Christine George of Luxe Parlour did! We opted for the After Party Pony) or have one of your bridesmaids do a sleek ponytail or low bun. If you do choose to do this, try and find a low point in the night to step away, so you don't miss out on any of the fun!
And if you choose to slip away from dinner a little early to get this done, be sure to bring your food. I didn't, which only added to my ability to get college-schwasted that night. It was definitely a night to remember-ish, but the next morning my body was wishing I had a few more bites of that damn chicken!
