For those of you who are married...

What did you do with your hair on your wedding? Hehe I was inspired to ask this question because of Space_Cadet's beautiful sounding fairytale hairstyle and I was wondering everyone else's ideas!

I was married so long ago...........28 years.  My hair was mid-back.  I went to a hair salon to have them style it to have curls - that was a disaster.  My hair would not dry, so it was damp when they took it out and the curls did not last.  I had daisies put in my hair, I did not have a veil.  You can see a picture at this link.  http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=1349081&uid=771714

My wedding was 12 years ago and I had my matron of honor's mom do my hair.  After trying several styles, we decided to go with a loose bun with ringlet curls on the sides.  My veil was a circle of pearls that fastened around the bun.  My gown was Victorian style, so it matched well.   Wink

I was in another good friend's wedding a couple years later.  The dresses were more modern.  For that one, the same stylist gave me a 'do that I have used several times since.  It sounds difficult, but it really is not.  And it looks like you had it professionally done in a salon.   Lips Sealed

Pull all you hair in a high pony tail, just below the crown of your head.  Use a tie that closley matches your hair color.

take small sections of the pony tail and loosly coil it until it curls around itself.  Using bobby pins, secure it to your head.  It will look similar to pin curls.  You should be able to hide the pins within the curl.

Use the same process and pin at different locations around the original pony tail.  I usually end up with about 8 or 10 different curls.  It depends on how thick your hair is and how much hair you take in each section.

You can also add flowers or other decorations in the center of each coil for a more dramatic effect.

Have fun! Grin

This sounds darling.  Cheesy How long is your hair?  If I am imagining this correctly, you are twisting each grouping of hair until it twists onto itself.  My hair would be long enough that it would hang down a bit.  Do you then pin up the the sections as well as the ends?

I've been doing a variation on what KASiss said. I put my hair in a ponytail and instead braid each section and pin it around my head. I saw it on a website once and tried it on myself and it was really nice. And braided sections tend to be shorter than twisted ones but I do have to pin it up in and around so that it doesn't hang down.

I'll have to try the braids. 

I coil the entire length of hair so it looks like a circle and then pin it, ends and all.  It looks sort of like bunch of little nests around the crown of your head.   Smiley

When I first had it done, my hair was just below bra strap length.  Now it is hip length.

This also would look nice on a bride that chooses not to have a veil or headpiece.  Just add some rose buds here and there and some babies breath and your set  Wink

Oh I just thought of something else...

small sections of strung pearls placed throughout the style (kind of like the accent braids talked about before) would add a nice effect for a wedding also...    Grin

My 'do was pretty simple. My hair was waist length so my aunt french braided it with the end tucked under as much as she could get it. Then she secured a long, decorative comb thingy over the outer braid that had flowers with little pearls. Simple and pretty. Smiley

My hair was quite short when I got married, but my best friend's hair was about waist length.  She had is put into spiral curls, and then into a huge flat bun.  Some of the strand were braided into tiny little braids that were then curled.  She had a really pretty bun wrap, too.  Looked really great, but didn't last at all, and by the end of the night, it looked wretched.  I highly recommend a trial, and then wearing your trial hair for a long period of time.

Hi Leia!

I got married in 1988.  Hubby and I eloped and I did my own hair up on a bun.   I was living in New York at the time and was seeing hubby, who was in Canada, on my x-mass holidays.  We had been dating in the states for about a year when his Visa expired and he had to leave  and go back to Canada:'(
We thought what the heck, we love each other, long distance relationship are so heart breaking, lets get married now! I borrowed a wedding dress from one of his female friends and hubby ran out and bought a ring. We got the paper's done then three days later (new years day) we sneeked out of his mothers house and got married at city hall. Then my hair was in layers and a little past my shoulders.  I got married in the winter, Dec 31st but we celebrate the day August 21 as we  renewed our vows last year at the Ren Fest.   And I have pictures!  I was so young then oh god!

Been married almost 12 years.
At that time I had shoulder length permed hair with suble layers cut in the front.
I wore it down-
went to my stylist and she curled it up nice with a curling iron.

I married in 2000 and my sister in law did my hair for me.  At the time my hair was abour BSL and slightly layered, no bangs at the time.  What she did was use a med. barrelled curling iron to spiral my entire head of hair, she then pulled all of my hair up into a high pony tale, being careful not to disturb the curls, and then took sections of the hair and loosely pinned it high up on my head.  It was very pretty, she also left some tendrils, loosely curled to hang down around my face, and I think also down the back of my neck.  I will see if I can find some pics to post.  Now, when she got married- I was her matron of honor, my hair was done by a friend of ours similarly, but slightly different- faster, too.  She sectioned my hair leaving two pieces by my face for the time being, the rest she pulled up into a high pony (before curling this time) and secured well.  She then used a curling iron to put pretty tight curls in the pony tale, and the down sections as well.  After curling, she pinned the curls up on my head, and loosely pulled the side sections back and pinned them near the pony elastic to blend in with the rest of my hair.  The reason she did this is because I told her I didn't want to see any "temple" sticking out, I have a high hairline, especially around my temples, so this prevented the sides from being to severely tight.  Tendrils were left hanging, and my bangs (short now) were swept to the side.  She did a fantastic job, I actually think I may attempt this on my own some day!  Those pics have not come back yet, but they should be done shortly, so I'll see about posting one of those as well.

Alright, I'm not married anymore, but like Maggie, I also married in 2000 and wore a curly updo for my wedding. My hair was nearly waist length at the time.

It was done professionally by the salon in the hotel where my wedding took place. The sylist set large curlers in my hair for lift, and I think she made me sit under a dome dryer for awhile.
    Next, the curlers came out and then came the gratuitous backcombing. I have very fine, thin hair, so all salons do this. The stylist ratted the front section of my hair, piling it high and then stuck her pick in it while one of my family members snapped a pic.  Roll Eyes
    After it had "sufficient volume," the stylist began pinning the back section of my hair into an elaborate weave, which was then covered up by the bottom layer of my hair (not sure what the purpose of the weave was).
    Once all sections of my hair were "up," she used a small curling iron to create tight, long curls, which she then pinned all over the top of my head. What I lacked naturally in volume, I made up for with length, so in the end, I had a big, curly updo, heavy with pins and spray.
    She left the gratuitous tendrils down also, and curled them. It really was a beautiful style, but most of it ended up being covered by my enormous veil.  Undecided

Should I ever chance to marry again (God willing), I've promised myself that I will wear my hair totally different. I'd much rather wear it down so it can actually be seen. Maybe pinned up on the sides with flowers or jewels. Maybe just straight down with a crown of small roses around my head.

But I'm definitely not shelling out $75 for a tortured, ratted and iron-burned updo that no one's going to be able to see anyway and will just fall limp by the end of the night.  Angry

Sometimes we just have to learn things the hard way, I guess....which makes second chances that much more of a blessing.  Wink

When I was younger (4th/5th grade?) I saw a gal french-braiding her hair while her head was upside down.  In otherwords, the "top" of the braid was at the nape of her neck, and the "bottom" of the braid rested high on her head, with the remaining un-bradied hair gathered in a pony.  I suppose she could have finished the braid, then pinned it to her head, but she didn't.  Anyway, I thought that was the neatest thing I had ever seen...and since I had already decided I was growing my hair out, I vowed that day to use a variant of that style for my wedding.

11ish years later, I was headed into the stylist to get my hair done for my wedding.  She was a friend of the family, and while she had never seen what I requested, she could envision it and had no qualms about trying something new.  She did the upside-down french braid, then took my remaining hair and pinned it, then curled tiny sections of it and pinned all of those in a mass of curls all over the top of my head.  She then lacquered it in hair spray.  I LOVED it, and it stayed in all night, even though we danced until 1am.  However, I think dh and I spent an hour and a half in the shower that night trying to get all the pins and hairspray out, which made for an interesting first shower together....No complaints, though!   Wink  (I was still picking the occasionional pin out of my hair for the next two days, LOL!)

I should try that style again sometime...maybe braid it all the way and pin it up.  Maybe split the braid into two at the "bottom" and wrap around each side of my head, then pin?  Could be a neat way to do my hair on our anniversary in July (8 years!).  If I do, I'll try to post a pic (I never got a back-shot of my hair on my wedding day...*sniff*).
