Wedding guest hair do's

I have a work friends wedding this weekend and I am really excited about it! Everyone from our office is attending and its going to be a massive event!

My friend is marrying a lovely Italian guy and they are expecting around 330 guests! Whoa! The wedding also isn't being held in our hometown (since K isn't from my hometown originally) so we are all 'road-tripping' for the wedding! Fun times ahead!

I am going all out with the preparations for the day (without going 'all out' on my budget!) I am wearing a dress that I purchased about 2 years ago for our local race meet and have only worn it the one time. It's still as pretty as ever so I figure its time to drag it out of the closet and give it another whirl. It also cost me around $300 so its time to get my monies worth!

I have already got the heels (black TB's) and since the dress is black and white it was easy to match my black heels. I've decided to do my own nails, except I am buying the polish (I'm hoping to score the OPI shade "Friday Night" if they have it in store!) and I got an awesome spray tan this afternoon by a lovely local lady in town! (I'll have to post pics of this since I am usually sooooo pale!)

All that's left to arrange is my hair do!

I have been pretty set on what I want my hair to look like. I am wearing a strapless dress that has a small tie on one shoulder (hard to imagine but will hopefully post pics next week) so I'm pretty sure I want my hair out.

I have been gathering inspiration from the net (good old google and Pinterest) to show the hairdresser on the day. I really hope they can do it!

Here is what I am thinking

Lauren Conrad is seriously one of my style and beauty idols! I love her! She is always so classy and well put together, plus I am a HUGE fan of The Hills!

She has worn her hair like this a few times (if you're a fan of The Hills you might remember she wore it like this to Heidi and Spencer's wedding!!).

I love love love this 'old Hollywood' style hair! Here are some more examples of this style that I found! 




Surely it can't be too hard to do this style right? The Taylor Swift version is very basic, I am looking more for the Sienna Miller or Lauren Conrad look I think!

Yay, I am getting very excited!!! I love a good wedding don't you?



  1. The style should be reallly easy to do, depending on how well your hair holds curls. Can't wait to see your outfit!

  2. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard
    work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
