You have sent out the invites and collaborated with your favourite wedding dress designers. Looks like you’re ready to go! But, as the big day draws near, it’s now time to focus on the finer details. One important element that you should give careful attention to is your hair. Many of brides-to-be overlook the importance of choosing a hairstyle that perfectly complements their gown – but it is extremely important.
When considering how you are going to be wearing your hair you should think about the style of your wedding dress and any accessories that will be worn on your head or in your hair to ensure they work well together. You should take these accessories to your practice sessions.
The classic gown design is generally best suited for women who want to look elegant and stick to a more traditional style. Typically, wedding dress designers use simple, clean lines and the necklines will skim along the collarbone, such as the bateau or the portrait neckline. For this type of gown, among the highly recommended hairstyles that complement the look are the simple bun or the timeless French twist.
Some brides like wearing the veil after the reception while others opt to remove it. No matter which hairstyle it is that you end up choosing if you’re wearing a veil, make sure that it will stay put through all the hugs that you will receive, through the dancing and as you lean over to kiss and greet your guests during the reception. This way, you will look great in all the wedding pictures even after all the activities and the excitement at the ceremony and reception.
Do ensure that your hairstyle is comfortable and you are happy with it. The last thing you want is to be itching or end up taking it down half way through the day. Whatever you choose it should be a reflection of your own individual style and personality. Going for something overtly wacky might scare your groom, he wants to be able to see the beautiful woman he has chosen to marry on your wedding day, not someone he barely recognises!
