    I absolutely love getting my hair done so I can see why you are thinking of doing that. The time issue could get dicey though – do you have a friend or family member that knows how to do hair well? If you’re staying at a hotel on the wedding night, you could use their in-house services (if they have them – some hotels now have salon/spas) for the brunch.

    I did my own for my RD. I put it into hot rollers and pulled it up off my face. I knew how I was wearing it for the wedding and I wanted to do it differently. There was NO way I would have had time to get it done unless you can find a spa that will do your hair as you are getting your mani/pedi. Seriously, I was SO busy on Friday.

    I wish I could say I am having mine done but I will have zero time. ­čÖü

    I have curly hair so I rarely wear it straight so I’m thinking I’ll have a blow-out friday morning. I luckily have a pretty easy day that day so we’ll see if it’s possible. I think having a nice blow out is “special” enough for our rehearsal dinner without being overdone.

    I am just as tempted as you to get my hair done for Fri. and Sun. I think for me it will be a money issue. Plus on Sunday I will probably be pretty ready to just stop caring about how I look and just pull it up without washing from the day before. But now Friday is definitey seeming more tempting now that you mention it though…

    For my rehearsal dinner I just curled my hair and pulled it back into a pretty ponytail. For my brunch I just wore it down and simple like I normally do ­čÖé

    Get a blow out for the RD! I am and I think it’ll look great, then it’ll be smooth and ready for the big day. For brunch, I think just casual.

    I agree with princess freckles! I’d get it done on the RD day just so I wouldn’t have to worry about ANYTHING. If you can afford it, go for it because it’s nice to feel so pampered before your big day! For the brunch I think a neat bun or ponytail will be pretty and not overdone.

    I love that other people obsess over this like I do. I am getting my hair blown out for my rehearsal dinner. My hair can get pretty frizzy and since I will be by the beach and part of the RD is outdoors I would like them to blow it out and get those kinks out. Plus – I have to have my hair dried and straightened for my wedding day updo so this will take care of that! I will probably just run the dryer through it in the morning of the wedding before I head off to the salon again. Then for the brunch- well, I will most likely wear a headband or a pony that morning – by then I will need to wash my hair and I can gaurantee you I won’t want to spend 45 minutes drying it. My goal is to find a super comfy cotton dress, that I can wear with a regular bra and some cute flops or flats to the brunch. I know my feet will be hurting and I will want to have a normal bra on. while looking adorable, of course!

    The day before the wedding was so crazy for me that I’m amazed I was even able to dress myself before the rehearsal dinner! I ended up going with a hasty ponytail and was STILL late for my own rehearsal dinner…

    One thought, though, is if you’re having your nails done the day before the wedding, you could have them done at the same salon where you do your hair—sort of a two birds with one stone approach to grooming!
