    Ideally I would have my hair down, but since I am having a beach wedding in May I am doing hair up.

    I think hair down would look a lot better with a veil.

    Amanda, I'm wearing a cathedral veil so Im having a hard time thinking how the veil will be pinned to my hair...and then how my hair will look once the veil comes off...

    I wore my hair down with a headband. No veil.

    As you can see by my profile pic, my hair is really short (it's an undercut, so it's even shorter most places). I'm planning on having a fascinator, something like that (sorry, couldn't find a better picture)

    I just had my hair trial on Sunday! I'm all about half-up as well, and will be adding a veil just under the comb (for the ceremony, only). I like how this turned out, but I'm still not sure...I may want a slightly more modern look. And the inspiration pic for this that I gave my stylist was the 2nd one that Kat88 just posted....If I keep this hairdo, I'll add a second braid like that picture has.

    I'm having my hair up. I was thinking about having it half up because I have a veil too but I don't want to get too hot.

    Here's my inspiration

    FutureMrsT I have the same dilemma...I want my gair free and flowy for the reception but styled for the veil...I wanted to do an updo, but my face is pretty round and my dress is strapless so I wanted my hair to kind of balance things out.

    corinne...love your inspiration pic!

    Definitely up, but haven't decided how yet. The area where we're getting married is known for getting pretty windy.
