What bride doesn't want to look their best on their wedding day? And indeed they should, because all eyes are going to be focused on them at the wedding. Everyone will be taking notice of the way the bride looks, the way she talks, the way she acts and the way she is dressed.
Memories of the day may fade over time, but in today's age of digital photography, videography, and social media, wedding photographs and videos will serve as a constant reminder of how beautiful the bride looked on the day of her marriage. All the more reason to look nothing short of perfect on your wedding day, from top to bottom (shoes, dress, veil, hair and makeup). Many brides find the process of choosing the "right" wedding hairstyle to be challenging and stressful. After all, the way you look on your wedding day will be immortalized on social media and will be something you'll look back on for the rest of your life!
We're here to help with picking a hairstyle for your wedding. To do that, there are so many questions we need to answer, like:
Here are a few tips to help answer these questions and more!
What is the Bride Wearing?
The overall look that a bride should have on her wedding day is something that is classy, elegant, and most of all, seamless. Or, if you like to throw caution to the wind and go bold with an edgier style, that's fine too! Most importantly, everything a bride wears (including hair and makeup) should match and complement the overall style/theme of the wedding. So, when a bride is considering a suitable hairstyle, she should consider her gown, veil, headpiece and overall style. The bride's hair should never compete with her wedding gown and her hair should also not obscure her gown, especially when she moves.
The hairstyle should be something that matches the bride's makeup as well. Just like with the gown, the hairstyle should never take the attention away from the bride's face.
Where is the Wedding?
A bride should also give serious thought to where the wedding will take place when choosing what bridal hairstyle to wear. Long locks done in loose curls flowing down her back may be great for garden weddings taking place during the daytime, but a formal updo is a must if the wedding is to take place at a grand cathedral, especially in the evening. If the wedding is going to be done at the beach or somewhere particularly windy, a loose hairstyle would be the worst choice to have because the wind will blow it to ruin.
What is the Bride Doing?
A bride does more than just walk down the aisle and say "I do" to the man of her dreams on her wedding day. We mentioned that above all, she will be getting photographed frequently and from all angles. Depending on how the wedding and reception will be done, she will also do a lot of socializing, dancing and dining on her wedding day. Whatever hairstyle she chooses to wear on the big day should be something that will not wilt on her head as she goes through the long day.
We hope that answering these questions will help you choose the style that's ultimately "right" for your big day. Above all, stay true to yourself and pick something that you love!
