Hairstyles I'm thinking of for my wedding

I think my dress is pretty classic, and it reminds me of old Hollywood glamour.  I think I'd like to stick to that style with my hair as well.  Here are a few styles I like.

I found this one today on Brooklyn Bride.  The bride's name is Kait and the photos are by Kella MacPhee.  (Her dress is also beautiful, btw.)
I like this hair a lot, though I'm not sure it's really old Hollywood glamour.  It's Serena from Gossip Girl.  There are tiny braids weaved in with the curls.  And my dress is pretty backless so I like the way the headband could hang down my back almost like jewelry.

I'm also a fan of the side swept messy bun (which is a slight variation on the way i way my hair every other day, in a messy ponytail bun.)  Below are Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams who illustrate it perfectly.

I love, love, love this veil (but sadly, the $700 price tag is not in the budget!)  But, a girl can dream!  This veil can be found here.  I'll probably end up making my own veil!

I'm also considering one hairstyle for the ceremony and another for the reception, with something like this headband from Jennifer Behr.  But, chances are, if I do a second hairstyle, I'll be doing it myself and I'm not sure I want to put that pressure on myself!  Because sometimes hair just doesn't do what you want it to do!

Yeah, so it's been awhile...

I've been a crappy blogger thus far.  So, hopefully this post will start to change that.  I'm still on the hunt for a florist.  Though I do have some ideas for centerpieces.  I guess in the latest wedding dress has come in!  People keeping asking me if I'm excited, and honestly, I'm not really.  It came in like 2 months earlier than I was told it would and it was ordered in a size I don't entirely fit in, so I'm refusing to try it on until the end of January which is when I plan to take my bridesmaids for dresses.  In the meantime, I need to lose an inch or two from my waist, which is funny since my waist is the only place I GAIN weight!  I plan to do this with Spinning and weight lifting.  My wish is to be able to buy a Spinner bike after the holidays (hopefully with some Christmas money to help).  My gym has a crappy schedule for Spinning and my membership is up for renewal in January anyway, so I can put that money towards the bike as well.

I never learned how to ride a real bike, so I figure even though this bike isn't cheap, it can be the equivalent of all the bikes I never had!   haha.
