Oh wow, thank you so much. That is incredibly sweet. I wasn't that excited about the thought of having to figure out my wedding hair, because everything you see is all bridal and prom-esque and up-do's and rhinestone princess tiaras. ugh. Not for me. Then, I got to thinking, my dress is from 1962, and has a 50's flair. So, should my hair! I was then able to get excited about it! I talked to my pal Anne, who works at Milio's here in Chicago, showed her a bunch of shots of do's from 50's pin up girls and actress bombshell types, and she figured this out for me. Mine was based on a half up, half down 'do, but we modified it for the very very hot day. Heather's (the blonde) hair was based on Anita Ekberg's hair, and my sister Pam's hair was based on a Maria Corday 'do.  We had some fun with the hair. I really wanted to have false eyelashes too, but I did my own make up (on a budget....) and ran out of time for the lashes, because I was making my bridal bouquet, in the kitchen, in my corset and Spanx! ha ha.

Love it!! Weddings on small budgets are always better (in my opinion). Who needs $20 grand when you have a creative spirit.

I hear ya! I am on another forum, not to be named, for weddings. And some of the gals talk about how they spent $8500 for their flowers. I mean, that is nearly twice the budget for our entire wedding!!! I am not the cookie cutter, country club type. And, although, this was alot of work, alot of stress, I couldn't have imagined not being involved and creative with it, every step of the way. The only thing I would have changed is the catering. I would have spent more money to have had a better set up. The food was great, but the dudes just came, dropped the stuff off and split. They didn't even light the sterno. I mean, I paid for set up, I don't get it. I was hauling out food boxes and schlepping chafing dishes in my wedding gown. In retrospect, it was fairly hilarious. But, not at the time!

So gorgeous!  I wish I had the skillz (and patience) to craft my whole wedding; I guess I have a few years for a head start!

Your hair was perfect for the dress too.  Yay for Milio's!  It's the ONLY place to get cool hair in Chicago.

Hollah!
Anne Richardson, from Milio's - an absolute genius!

Bathsheba Nemerovski from Sine Qua Non normally does my hair, and she did the cut for my husband for the wedding.

Double hollah!

Wow.  What a beautiful wedding!  I hit "This Rocks" even though I'm reasonably certain that weddings arent ever featured projects.   Roll Eyes

It looks absolutely lovely.  There is nothing that looks "bargain" about this wedding.  I may use some of the ideas for my hubby's grandparent's 60th anniversary party.  Thanks for sharing and congratulations.  I hope you have a wonderful marriage which means even more than the beautiful wedding.
