Wedding hair trial: A romantic updo

I’ve still not decided on my wedding hair style! Can you believe it? The problem is, I really like the look of an updo but I question the functionality and staying power of one.
I’ve been trying out this version of a mess updo:

For our wedding, messy is key. But the updo part is still not selling me because I have so much darn hair! An updo with hair like mine means a full packaged of hair pins… and everyone knows that ISN’T comfortable.

In the above video, they have you tie the bottom part of your hair in a knot… Mine doesn’t tie in a not nearly as easily and it simply wont stay! This girl needs so hair tips.

So tell me, do you rock the updos? What are your tips and trick for a girl with like 8lbs of hair on her head?
