You should choose the style that fits you. You want to look like you at your most beautiful! If you never wear your hair in a bun, you shouldn't do it for your wedding. Add clips, flowers, or a veil that fits the style & formality of your wedding.
If you're really brave, you could go with a bird like Carrie Bradshaw!

1. Make arrangements with your job so that your email and business cards will be updated upon your return to work.
2. Tell your bridesmaids & family what your plans are so that they may pass along the information to any planning on giving you a personalized gift.
3. Make your honeymoon reservations using your MAIDEN name. You will not be able to change your driver’s license or passport until you return, so your tickets need to match your travel documents.
After the wedding:
1. Get a new social security card.
a. Once you have your marriage license (which may take a couple of weeks), download the form from the social security website.
b. Take this completed form to the Social Security offices along with your marriage license and your ID to get a new card.
2. Get a new driver’s license.
a. Most DMV offices will change your driver’s license if you present a copy of your marriage license. Others require you to also present your new social security card.
b. Check with your local DMV for their requirements.
3. Change the paperwork at your office.
a. Visit your office’s HR or finance department again with your new social security card to change the name on all of your financial information (i.e. payroll & tax deductions)
b. For everyone else, including: the bank, insurance policies, credit cards, utility companies, and membership organizations, type up a letter with all of your information on it. This letter should contain instructions to change your name along with your name, address, new name, account number, and possibly your social security number. Include with the letter a copy of your marriage license.
4. Don’t forget to order new checks & credit cards.

The bride looked radiant in a beautiful strapless gown and carried a bouquet of pink and white peonies, roses, and stock. Her bridesmaids wore custom made black silk dupioni dresses and carried gorgeous pink of ranunculus, spray roses, and green hyacinth berries.
The photobooth guestbook was a huge hit! Lyndi & Tony's friends and family left photos for them and took home a second set of the photos as a momento of the day.
Lyndi and Tony are two amazing people. You deserve all of the happiness in the world. It was truly a pleasure to work with you and your family and friends. Have a wonderful honeymoon!
Overall the wedding was absolutely stunning. I cannot wait to post the pictures! They should be up in 2 weeks. Check back!
