It's kind of hard to make a decision about my hair for the wedding this early because I don't have a dress or anything yet but I do know the "feel" we're trying to achieve and I know me.
So I think that wedding day hair should be like your everyday hair style, just amped up a little bit. A tad fancier but still you.

Color Master, Scott.
I sat in the chair and looked like I could receive cable television and messages from aliens with all of the foil on my head, and in the end, I absolutely loved the color. So I fancied up my hair a little for my everyday look and I'm fairly certain I'm going to maintain it and probably go a little less subtle.
Right now, my hair somewhere between neck length and shoulder length. I had cut it fairly short around my birthday in February and Prince Charming complained. He likes it longer. So I've been growing it back out since then. I told Scott that I'm growing it out for the wedding and he's helping me keep it in shape while it grows. It's better to have longer hair for the wedding because it's a little more versatile.
I'm not sure that I want an updo even though there are a lot that I've seen that I really like. I favor the loose, slightly sloppy updo with lots of free strands around the face.
The thing about all of these looks that concerns me is that all of these pictures are of thin women. I'm not downing my weight loss efforts or anything but I don't think I'll ever be in the weight range of these women. Even at my thinnest ever, I was about 150 pounds and looking at pictures from that time period, I look too thin. Kind of like a lollypop. But whatever, what I'm wondering is if this type of style will flatter my face.
My other hair thought is to stick to something closer to like my every day hair style. Medium length, sort of fluffy. I like long bangs and layers. These are the pictures I gave Scott when I cut my hair short.
Most days I can sort of get it to look like these. Hopefully by the time the wedding rolls around, my hair will be longer, so I'm thinking that my every day style will be more like these.
I guess I'll have to keep thinking about it and see where the length is as we get closer. Either way, I'm pretty settled on being veil-less and instead wearing some kind of blingy hair clip or headband.
