Wedding Do's

With my wedding dress being almost completely done with its alterations (I pick it up this Saturday!!), I've been researching different hairstyles. Let me give you a little bit of a mental picture of my dress:
  • Long sleeve lace sleeves
  • Lace bust/chest area
  • Fabric flows down with lace trim work at the bottom of the dress
  • Lonnnggggg train
My wedding dress was my mother's wedding dress, with some minor alterations done to it. So think vintage, southern wedding dress style. I want to channel a classic look, with a modern twist to it. Of course, Pinterest has been my go-to for ideas to share with my hairstylist (read: cousin). 

I initially started off with the half-up/half-down look:

But after putting my dress back on with most of the alterations done, my mind changed instantly. Here's what I'm planning on now...

The above 2 photos I'm absolutely swooning over so I'm excited to see what my cousin will be doing on my hair. And just because I'm so giddy about it... we're just 2 months and 6 days from the BIG DAY!!!


  1. You must be getting so excited for the big day!! Those hairstyles would look great with the dress you described!

  2. How exciting! I love the updo ideas. I almost forgot to pick up my dress. I left work early the Thursday before my wedding to go buy something to wear to the rehearsal, and while I was at the mall, I realized that my dress, on the other side of town, needed to be picked up! #scatterbrained

  3. Your hair is going to be beautiful!!! Those photos are perfect! I determined how to do my hair by the dress I picked too. I love that you're wearing your mother's! Most people just can't do that nowadays....well, I couldn't because my mom was a size 0 when she got married and I'm SO not :-p I LOVE that you are! That'll be so special, Kelly!

  4. All of those styles are lovely. Can't wait to see it all come together!

  5. Oh yes yes yes love itttt! Can't you just post a pic of you in your dress for usssss ((:

  6. Love all those hairstyles and can't wait to see the finished product.
