Vote for Our Blogger's Wedding Updo

For formal events, I typically play it safe when it comes to my hair. I often opt for a simple half-up, half-down style complete with loose curls (see above).

I've been contemplating which hairstyle to choose for our wedding day, and my gut instinct is to continue the tradition by pinning a few pieces back and calling it a day. There's only one small problem: My dress would look best with an updo. 

For this reason, I've spent the past year (maybe a little more) searching for the perfect wedding updo. I am totally out of my comfort zone when all of my hair is pinned up, so I'm thankful that I will at least have a trial prior to the big day. 

I’m so excited to share my findings with my fellow BG brides! Here are some of my favorite hairstyles that I’m considering…
