Wedding Wednesday- Still no idea about Hair and Makeup

by - Thursday, June 21, 2012


 Alright, so I am starting to think again about how my hair will look at the wedding. Honestly, other than the occasional pin on pinterest, this is something I really have trouble caring about. I know I will care later if I look crazy in my pictures, but mostly when I look at hair stuff, I just think about how nice certain things look on other people. According to Tabitha of that Bravo show with Tabitha in the title, you are supposed to just look like yourself but kind of elevated/ fancier/ whatever. So I was trying to think this morning of times I actually thought I did look nice (can you tell I finally turned my proposal in?); when I get to pick my hair as a bridesmaid, I always pick half up half down, because I just feel more comfortable/ pretty that way, but I have gotten a lot of feedback that leaving hair down means that things will be ratty by the end of the night, and I am afraid with such a hot summer it will really look nasty. 

Still, these are my favorite wedding looks:

I also really like hairstyles with some serious bangs, because I really like having bangs, so I was thinking it might have my hair being up look cuter and less princessy, like in these pictures (I would just really like it to have some actual personality):

 But I did find an up, swoopy bang look I liked more this week. This hairstyle is really pretty from the front, but I am not sure about the back.

So the point, is that I still don't have any new thoughts on this, and basically I just know what I don't like. I also keep reading that I should be procuring a make up artist, but I am not sure those are even available in Franklin, PA, so who knows what I will do for that. 

According to our wedding timeline business, we are supposed to be starting a "hardcore beauty regimen," but I think the Boy is taking that more seriously than me. We did buy some new face soap stuff. And we are wearing lots of moisturizer and sunscreen. I also bought a lip stain thing, because I read that girls who never wear much make up get freaked out when they see themselves all done up on their wedding day, or they don't put enough make up on or something. It's all very important, you know. So I bought this lipstain and it looks crazy and I feel like a prostitute and not in a good way. So, apparently that is what I need to be working on, on top of deciding what I want to do with my hair.  It's all very dramatic. See? This is the problem, it's like trying to force myself into caring about something that I have no strong opinions about, and I don't know how you formulate an opinion about it when mostly you are just noticing that other people look really nice for them. 

I better get my act together because we are only 9 weeks to go!! We can count the weeks on our fingers!
