Tips and Challenges of Choosing a Wedding Hairstyle
Before anything else, begin with the dress and the theme of your wedding. If you are wearing a high-necked Victorian dress, then a sleek, chic modern French chignon may not be a good choice.
Your bridal hair should complement your dress. Stay true also to yourself. Don’t be a miserable bride with braids and twists if you want some trendy asymmetrical chopped tresses. A great stylist can have you waltzing down the aisle full of feminine grace even with punky platinum hair.
Another tip is to always have a run-through with your stylist, mom, sister, or whoever is going to do your hair. Bring your bridal accessories and adjust accordingly. Your great-aunt’s tiara may be gorgeous. But if it keeps slipping down your head, you have to address that or skip the family jewels.
Finally, think of time and budget. If you are getting a stylist, you have to make allowances for the time to do your hair, your mom, and your groom’s mom.
If you are having a morning wedding, think about what time you have to wake up to get to the church on time. You don’t want to look bleary-eyed and tired on your big wedding day.
Can your budget fit an assistant or two? What about the wedding party, who pays for the hair and makeup?
There are a million details. But live a few stress-free moments with this list of gorgeous hairstyles fit for any bride.
