View Full Version : Anyone interested in seeing my wedding hair? (pic heavy!)

January 30th, 2011, 01:59 PM
If not, don't click! ;) (Warning: there is a wedding kiss in this thread-- hopefully I don't offend anyone!)

Heh, the wedding was back in June. You would think if I was going to post, it would have been sooner... However, I've been lazy/ apathetic/ avoiding my computer for no apparent reason for months. Also, I haven't been sure that anyone would be interested (insecurity rears its ugly head again!), but now I'm figuring that if that's the case, my thread will drift away quietly and I won't have to worry about it! ::nervous giggle:: Please let me know if you do think the thread is unnecessary, and I'll see if the mods can remove it for me! :cheese:

At any rate:

As some of you know, my mini-goal was to get my hair back to just-above-hip for the wedding after an 8" chop for hair-health and thickness reasons. Well, I mostly made it, and was very happy with my hair the day-of!

I ended up braiding my hair the night before to get braid waves, and then had the lady (who came out to my PIL's to do our hair right there in the bathroom) do fairytale braids on both sides of my head for a kind of half-up.

(All photos were taken by my best-friend-since-third-grade, and she says she doesn't care what I do with them! :) )

This is what the back of my head looked like, sans veil:

That strange part/ line there went away after I fussed with it.

Front shot: (this is pre-makeup, but post hair-do, so I removed my face because I looked slightly diseased for some reason and it makes me feel bad... The ends lost some of that curl later, and looked nicer after more fussing!)


And now some action shots! (that handsome man in black is DH!) DBF wasn't really taking photos with my hair in mind, so I sorted through them and tried to find the ones that show more of the hair:


(post- makeup, much nicer!)

January 30th, 2011, 02:11 PM
Congratulations! Looks like a beautiful wedding :)

I've never seen fairytale braids that meet in the back before! It seems intuitive, and looks great.

January 30th, 2011, 02:18 PM
Very pretty. I also love your dress by the way. :D

January 30th, 2011, 02:21 PM
Sooo beautiful! I love that you left your hair mostly down. Thank you for sharing!

January 30th, 2011, 02:37 PM
you look lovely! Thanks for sharing :)

January 30th, 2011, 02:55 PM
Aww, you look very beautiful and happy. Your hair looks wonderful too, the fairytale look suits the dress :)

We did a courthouse wedding and I don't have any pictures, while I am VERY happy and relieved I didn't have to be on stage at a wedding, I wish I had pictures.

I love it! I love to see brides with down hair!
Wanted to wear mine down for my wedding, but it didn't work out. :(

January 30th, 2011, 03:23 PM
How beautiful! Your hair, you, your dress, flowers, everything-- beautiful!!

January 30th, 2011, 03:26 PM
These are lovely pictures. I'd love to do this style sometime myself. I'd just need a second person to hold the strands.

January 30th, 2011, 03:28 PM
Aww it's gorgeous, don't often see people with their hair down on their wedding day which is a shame!

January 30th, 2011, 04:07 PM
Awww, you two make such a cute couple! Congrats on your wedding!:cheese:

You look so beautiful! I love your hair. The waves are lovely.

January 30th, 2011, 04:29 PM

January 30th, 2011, 04:32 PM
Beautiful!! Both the hair and the lovely couple! Congrats my friend!

January 30th, 2011, 04:51 PM
Your pictures are just gorgeous! Your hair was amazing (as was your dress... and everything else)!

I wore my hair up for my wedding (3 months ago) to show off the back of my dress. I also haven't seen many brides wear their hair down, but it is so beautiful. It looked so elegant on you.

It looks like you had a beautiful wedding.

January 30th, 2011, 05:05 PM

Beautiful hair and lovely couple. :)

(Belated) Congratulations on your wedding.
I hope you have many happy years together. :flower:

We were so happy that day, we were both holding back tears. (He was more successful than I was!) ;) It was amazing! We're still pretty happy, too, and having been in a relationship for 6 years this month, I think we're doing well! (it's going to be weird having a new anniversary now!)
