Hair poll--Up or down?

I am doing an updo for my wedding, but I've noticed on Four Weddings it seems like the vast majority of the brides do their hair down or just half up. So, what are you doing? Just wondering! Are your bridesmaids having their hair up or down too?

    Updo! Seems more special/ formal for me personally. Also I hate how I look with the half-up.

    My bridesmaids hair was up.

    My hair was all up technically up but the pony tail cascaded down into curls so that part was down

    My hair will be half up half down, and my bridesmaids are having an up-do. I hate the way I look with my hair all the way up.

    I plan on having it all down with just the front section that falls in my face pinned back.

    I plan on having mine all the way down, but I don't like the way I look with my hair up at all. I love updos on other people though.

    Edited for spelling

    I initially said down. I hate the way I look with my hair up. But my hair is long (about 4 inches above my waist) and I had it done professionally for my E-pics. She used almost an entire can of hairspray on it yet is was flat in about 30 min. So, up it is!!! As far as bridesmaids, I'm letting then wear their hair however they like :-)

    Mine is up in the front with long flowing curls in the back-so that my hair does not block any of the awesomness of my dress

    Mine will be up, I never like my hair down.... just something about the way it feels on my neck.

    I haven't decided yet, but I am leaning towards down.

    Yeah I actually like the way it looks up and I like that it keeps me from playing with it (I am terrible about always fidgeting with my hair). I think I will let my bridesmaids do whatever they want.

    Mine will be in a fishtail braid over my shoulder. Haven't decided on bridesmaids yet.

    All up.

    Half up or all done just don't say "bride" to me. They're everyday type hair styles

    Eta: my bridesmaids are doing whatever they want. MOH is a side swept do, my sister is half up & my third BM is doing a loose updo

    I think I'm going to do "up" in a low side bun. I always thought I would wear my hair down, but my dress has a very intricate back and neckline so I don't want my hair to cover it!

    Half up half down. I have no idea what the bridesmaids are doing since I'm allowing them to do whatever.

    I don't like the way my face looks with my hair pulled away from my face, but I can't have it completely down either as it will start to frizz. Here is my inspiration:

    Mine will be down, I think mine looks much better down. I HATE how the half-up looks on me, yet my identical twin does it all the time! I think it looks dumb, but she likes it! I'm the one on the left.

    ETA: This is an older pic... I'm the "fat" one now. We change in weight all the time.

    I had been planning half up with curls but now I'm on the fence again.

    I'm definitely leaning towards an updo, but I've seen lots of pretty styles that are half-up and down.
