Our Wedding: Bridal Hair and Makeup
I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I married my best friend on the Carnival Miracle (more posts to come for sure!!!)!!! I was so excited to wear my beautiful wedding dress and have my hair done as well. I went back and forth on whether I was going to do my own makeup and decided that I was going to take the plunge and indeed do my own makeup (all but my fake eyelashes)! I think it turned out pretty dang good if I don’t say so myself!
I woke up super early to get my hair done – keep in mind we had to be at the Port of Long Beach Cruise Terminal by 9:30 a.m. Jessica from JL Hairstyling came to our hotel room and did my mom’s and my hair for the wedding. My maid of honor (and best friend), Colleen, surprised me with a Venti Vanilla Latte (my favorite drink) from Starbucks with “Bride” written on it and a drink for the groom as well.
I was on the fence of whether I would have my hair half up or all the way up for the wedding. I didn’t get a chance to have a trial run because she was all the way in Long Beach. I really loved the Chignon Bun for a while, but when I went to bed the night before our wedding, I knew that I wanted my hair half up, half down for the wedding. I searched through Pinterest and shared the pics with Jessica.
I felt so pampered and relaxed the morning of our wedding. I love having my hair done! I couldn’t wait to show my soon-to-be husband! I had also purchased some pretty bobby pins with pearls to go in my hair as well. Jessica did an amazing job with my bridal hair up-do!
It was pretty windy at the Port of Long Beach Cruise Terminal and my hair had fallen down a little – but amazingly it looked like it was supposed to do that. When I finally made it our cabin to get dressed, my maid of honor and bridesmaids helped touch me up. Then my mom and stepmom came in and helped put my veil on and perfect the bridal look. I was so ready to walk down the aisle and marry the man of my dreams!
My wedding day was amazing and one that I will never forget. I felt like a beautiful bride that day and am pretty sure my husband thought so too! I was so happy with my decisions for my Bridal Hair and Makeup!
