Wedding Hair

Last February during my Valentine’s Day Julie & Julia Party, two of our dear friends got engaged…. right in my dining room! I’ve never been up that close to a proposal besides my own. Tomorrow is their wedding day, and Clark and I are performing the music for the ceremony. The wedding is outdoors, which means that while the bride and groom and the bridal party are tucked cozily beneath the shade, Clark and I will be baking in our little patch of sun-scorched concrete where the musicians are positioned to play. Such is life. But before I beat the heat by singing in my bathing suit, I thought I might try a few new updos. Here are a few of my favorites.

You all have such great taste. Which style would you choose? Speaking of choosing…. you all voted for your favorite font for Amelia’s 1st birthday party invitation. Pea njh Whimsy takes the cake! Thanks for your input everyone.

You can click on any of the above images to get the hair style tutorial for each updo. If my hair turns out ok tomorrow, I’ll take pictures and post on Monday. Wish me luck!
