Hair Inspiration

I've been gathering inspiration pictures for my hair since before we got engaged. I'm not sure why, but a girl's hair is usually one of the first things I notice in pictures, and I just love the look of loose, big curls. I know I want at least a section of my hair pulled up because my hair is extremely thick and will be hot in June. For some reason, my hair doesn't hold curl especially well (I don't know why since it's wavy to begin with), so I'm debating having a style that can be altered a little bit for the reception, when I'll be moving around/dancing my booty off/sweating! I'll be wearing a chapel length veil-which I'm making, so I'll post a DIY tutorial as soon as I do!-for the ceremony, but will probably wear a hair flower for the reception, so I'd like a style that looks good with both (or possibly that can be easily changed to look good with both).

My inspriation for the ceremony:


*I think this is the inspiration picture for the majority of brides that want a half-up style - I've seen this picture everywhere!*

*Taylor Swift has the best curls!*


*I like the poof in this one*

And for the reception:

**I don't have sources for most of these, so please let me know if you know where they came from!**

Ok, so maybe I need to even out the inspiration a little bit. Logistically, though, I'm not sure how it would work as I don't really want to be re-doing my hair just before the reception.

So, what do you think? Should I just scrap the idea of changing my original hair-do and hope my curls stay in place (or that I'll be too happy to care if they don't)? If so, should I still try to wear a hair flower with my original style? Do any of you have any inspiration pictures-since I'm obviously a big fan of them-of half-up styles with hair flowers? I need your help with this one!


  1. if you can change your hair style... i would TOTALLY DO IT!! you don't see many brides doing this... we change our but i hardly ever see hair!!!

  2. I agree. If you can do it, then go for it!

  3. I totally agree - go for changing it up if you have time and can do it. But as a recently married also know that if you can't - it really won't matter in the end :) you're so full of love and bliss on that day none of it will matter!
