As a bride-to-be, I find myself searching for my perfect wedding hairstyle. Our wedding attire will be preppy-casual, probably outdoors, and will take place on an island that is so small it doesn't even have a salon. I am so lucky that my future sister-in-law is an incredible stylist and a good friend. Hopefully she can work her magic on my naturally curly hair despite the inevitable Florida humidity in July. Of course, an up-do would be the wisest option and I did not even consider wearing my hair down. That is, until the lovely Joanna Goddard posted pictures of this beautiful bride.
I'm loving the bride's sleek bob, and it is similar to my own style on the rare occasion that I take the time to straighten my hair. Due to the heat and humidity, perhaps better to save my sleek straight bob for parties. Here are a few of my favorite wedding do's. I'm envious of the gorgeous long curls from Stephanie Beal. Now I'm missing my long locks, sigh.
Slightly messy yet so romantic. (Source forgotton - sorry!)
Because my dress will be more casual, I'm not wearing a veil. However, I would like to have a flower or two. Sorry about the tiny pic. From WeddingHair.com.
Pretty Satin headband from Etsy's Mixbaby.
Look closely - see the little braid of this bride's hair acting as a headband? From celebhairstyle.files.wordpress.com.
Vintage-inspired, don't you think? I love it. From flickr.

A more formal look than I'm going for, but it's quite pretty so I chose to share. From WeddingHair.com.
What do you think? Which is your favorite? I will probably end up choosing an up-do (no veil). A vintage-inspired coiffure is also in the hunt, although I haven't found any that are quite right just yet.
