Changing hair between ceremony and reception
Has anyone had experience with/been witness to a bride changing her hair in between the ceremony and reception? I have long, relatively thick wavy hair that's prone to frizz. I recently bought my dress and decided having my hair down or half up/half down would look the best with my neckline and accessories. I don't, however, want my hair hanging down on my neck and back during the reception because I plan on dancing a lot and don't want to become a sweaty,frizzy mess in photos!! My sister suggested taking a few minutes during the cocktail hour to go up to the bridal suite and having either a talented friend or hairstylist quickly convert my ceremony style into an updo so I don't look a fright. I figure if my hair is already curled/styled for the ceremony it shouldn't take a terribly long time and I would definitely be more comfortable for the rest of the evening but I've never heard of a bride doing this. I know dress changes are common but not hair changes! Has anyone ever heard of someone doing this? Does it sound plausible given the time limits? My fiance and I are doing a first look and formal shots before the ceremony so I should have some wiggle room but I'm not sure. Any advice would be great!
