I'm struggling with my veils, and hair choice plays a part in your veil choice, but it turned into a really wordy/pic heavy post so I'm spitting it into 2 posts lol! If you want to help me out in both posts that would be so helpful! 馃挋馃ズ



I thought I knew what I wanted: an updo with bangs and tendrils! Below are 3 pictures: pic 1 & 2 are what I'm envisioning currently (pic 2 is what I think the front of pic 1 looks like.)Picture 3 is a different style- pulled back, no bangs, but still tendrils. I don't care for how they did the back of her hair, the actual updo, so please ignore that. Picture 4 is me, for hair color reference, though my face is probably thinner since I've lost ~20 pounds since that photo..
What do you think of bangs vs no bangs, side tendrils?

    I think the styles themselves look really pretty!

    But one thing to consider... Have you worn styles with tendrils before? They were a huge, huge style back in the late 90s and early 2000s, and all I remember is that they soon became limp, greasy strings framing the face, so I personally wouldn't go for that style - not when they need to last all day, rather than for just a few photos.

    Of course, a lot of time has passed since I got that style and maybe there are new products and techniques which mean this doesn't happen any more - which would be great, since those styles are super cute!

    But I'd maybe test out how they last and sit on you over the course of a full day before committing.

    Good point, thank you! 馃槉 I have/I do, but I'm definitely no professional, and they might have tips for making it last.

    Is your hair longer than in the pic you posted or will be at the time of the wedding? Are you wearing extensions? Some of those updos work better with longer hair, so make sure that your stylist is able to achieve those looks with your hair length. I think all of these options are beautiful!

    I love the look of tendrils and face framing curls, but they are not super wearable. For our wedding celebration, I had an updo with some wispy side pieces pulled out and curled for our ceremony. After we did photos, my friend pinned them back for the rest of the night, so they weren't constantly falling in my eyes while eating, dancing, etc.

    Much longer! That photo is from 2017, actually 馃槄 Thank you so much for thinking of that, though! I may just have to do 2 trials and re-ask the wedding wire community which they prefer if I can't decide! Maybe trials will sort it out lol!
