What to “Do”: Deciding How to Style Your Hair for Your Wedding Day
One decision when planning your wedding day that usually induces high levels of stress for the bride and some possible mocking from a teasing groom or brother is how the bride wants to do her hair. Laugh if you want, but the how to style your hair on your wedding day is a pretty big deal and will effect your overall wedding look. As the bride, you will of course have the advantage of that pure happiness glow, but to pull together a beautiful look you need to pay extra attention to your hair.
First off, do you want to wear your hair up or down? Al lot of brides will try desperately to grow there hair out as long as they can for their wedding day with the intention of wearing it long beautiful locks. But if your facial features are shown off best with a shorter hairstyle you may want to forgo the push for longer lengths. A Short spunky do can be made elegant plenty easy. Regardless, if you do want to wear your hair down for your wedding we have two suggestions: Firstly, don’t just wear it in a straight everyday look and secondly add some sort of hairpiece or veil. We don’t suggest having your hair down and straight because it is rather casual and everyday look. Adding some soft waves or curls is a great way to add a little extra umph and elegance to your look. Also, with adding a hairpiece you will further distinguish yourself as the bride particularly from your bridesmaids. Wearing your hair up does tend to more easily give you added elegance, but, like when deciding if you should have a short or long hair cut, deciding between an up and down do will require the same facial feature considerations. Furthermore, you will still want to consider the addition of a veil, headband, tiara, or other hairpiece to mark you as queen of the day. Besides, what bride wants to turn down the opportunity for a little added sparkle?
Bridal headbands like the one featured above are what are trending right now. They are beautiful and, typically, and unobtrusive addition that highlights the bridal look without overpowering it. Typically they can be found with floral or beaded designs that can easily mesh with your gorgeous wedding dress.
The tiara is the perfect choice for brides that want to feel like a princess on their wedding day (or are a self proclaimed princess everyday). They work great with up do’s and can be as queenly or as subtle as you want to take it. Overall, the bridal tiara would be the crowning jewel to your bridal look.
The bridal veil is probably the most traditional bridal accessory you could choose, but they still come in all shapes and sizes. The one above is a particularly dramatic undertaking, but if grand entrances are your thing, this veil will definitely help make that happen. If you want a veil, but want something a little less, then try something like our “Scalloped Lace Border Veil“. This veil has a particularly traditional look and is undeniably beautiful.
