Wedding Wednesday: Hair Despair

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

I am practically having an on-going anxiety attack because the wedding is less than 3 months away, and I have NO idea how I want to wear my hair. I know I want it to be wavy- loose, romantic waves- but I cannot make up my mind about whether to wear it up, down, half-up, half-down….what a dilemma! While I should be studying for final exams, I’ve been persuing Pinterest like a fiend in search of the perfect hairstyle. The problem is, I just don’t know how any of them will look on me. Trying them out at home is not an option because I am 100% of incapable of creating updos. Furthermore, I generally prefer wearing my hair down, but I’m afraid that wearing my hair down will be too casual and will detract from the pretty neckline of my dress (spoiler alert! It’s sweetheart). Anybody have any thoughts on this? In the meantime, here are some of the pretty pictures I’ve found on Pinterest:

Braids. I love braids! Especially loose, tousled, side-swept braids. But I’m afraid I may appear too Repunzel-like if I wear a Repunzel braid with a gown. Also, a side braid would look weird with a veil, right?


Half up with a braided back. This one may be a serious contender, but I am afraid it will take away from the bodice of the dress (see above).
I would wear my hair like this every single day if I had the skill or the patience to make these tiny little fishtail braids.


Pretty, side-swept updo.


Fun, voluminous updo. Another top contender.


I love these loose waves, but I am afraid this look is too casual.
I realize I’m being totally neurotic about choosing a hairstyle for the wedding, but I seriously can’t commit to one! Any tips, suggestions, hints on how to overcome indecisiveness, etc. are welcome- needed, in fact!
