Although I am still 5 months out from saying “I do” I wanted my maid of honor and best friend to be a part of the planning. My amazing MOH, Jenna, will be making the trip from Milwaukee to Lincoln this April for my Bachelorette Dinner & Bridal shower! Since she was unable to make it to Lincoln when I tried on wedding gowns I thought she could come with me to my hair appointment to help me select the perfect hairdo!

Since August will most likely be very humid and warm (fingers are STILL crossed for 75 degrees and sunny!) I knew I had to have my hair off my neck and out of my face. My amazing hairdresser, Amanda, from Eve Salon has been discussing my ideas with me to make sure my hair stays long enough each appointment leading up to the big day! Here are some of my inspirations. I love the messy low bun look with my bangs swept back. It’s still timeless, classy but a lot more fun and laid back!

Update: I am still waiting on that hair piece I ordered from However, I messaged the seller and they agreed to give me a FULL refund and ship me the product for it taking so long! Talk about a deal & a sweet soul! But brides be warned: check the seller’s refund policy before buying, you may end up with a product that is nonreturnable if it’s the wrong color or size!


  • HiLLjO - Love the hair ideas! I know I wanted straight-across forhead fringe but with the June heat, the bangs will just curl right up, I know.
    You’re so lucky you get some wedding experiences with your MOH. My MOH is from Michigan so she’ll only be able to make the wedding.ReplyCancel

Today we’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming (don’t worry, we’ll still share a Nebraska real wedding sometime this week) to talk a bit about something NWD is really excited to be involved in.

The Fantasy Wedding Show is coming up on April 3rd here in Lincoln and it’s going to be fabulous! It’s from noon to 4 PM at the Grand Manse, and if you haven’t already made plans to attend I highly recommend you do so! It’s only $5 at the door and a portion of those proceeds are going to The Friendship Home in Lincoln, which supports abused women and children as they struggle to break free from abusive relationships.

Also, there will be tons of great vendors, workshops and seminars from various wedding experts and the (Almost) Newlywed Game…which will also be used to raise money for the Friendship Home!

And FYI, I have it on good authority that they’re still looking for fun and quirky couples to participate in the (Almost) Newlywed Game; so if you’re interested, email Sara at for more info on how to join in the fun!
