it seems like everybody is getting married these days, doesn’t it? Of course, it’s probably just your stage of life. But with so many weddings to go year-round, it can be overwhelming when it’s time to plan your own day. We all want our big day to be the “best day ever” but how do you do that? Don’t worry! The best thing about planning your wedding is you can literally do whatever you want. Sure, you feel pressure from certain individuals at times. But at the end of the day it’s your day to design as you will!

Some dream of a day filled with age-long traditions. Others want to stand out from the wedding crowd and develop a unique look of their own. There’s all sorts of wedding hair options if you want to avoid the standard low bun up do. It’s just a matter of choosing what suits your dress the best!


We often associate pigtails with a more childish look for a young girl. It doesn’t have to be that way for your wedding though! Pigtails are a great way of adding a more casual, carefree look to your bridal attire. If you’re having a laid-back, outdoor wedding, pigtails could be absolutely adorable! Consider doing a cute fishtail braid or just rocking them in loose curls.

Top Knot

If you’re a no-nonsense bride or want to add a more high-fashion look to your day, consider a top knot or bun. They’re not fussy, you can do it yourself, and they instantly elevate your look! Don’t be afraid to slick it completely back or do the opposite and allow some pretty wispies to escape. This look is especially flattering if you’re wearing a gown with a high or sweetheart style neckline.

The Twist

Doing a side, front, or back twisted hairstyle is a beautiful, feminine look for your hair. There’s so much versatility with this look that you really can make it anyway you want! Consider twisting a portion up and leaving the rest down. Or, you could come it all to one side and go for a dramatic twist. Endless possibilities for you to be creative!

Classic Ponytail

Ladies, let’s admit it. We all love the ponytail. It’s easy, sleek, and low-maintenance. If you’re going for a more elegant look, we suggest wearing it a little lower. Use an accent piece at the base in order to add a bit of drama.

It usually works well to schedule a hair trial about 4-6 weeks before your wedding day. Be sure to block off about two hours so there’s plenty of time for the stylist to play with your hair. Don’t be afraid to tell them what you do or do not like about the style that she does. It can be intimidating to offer your opinion but it’s your wedding day and you want to be fully happy with how your hair looks!

As a general rule, less is often more when it comes to bridal hair. You want your natural beauty to shine forth on your big day. Don’t worry too much about making a huge statement with your hair. Do what feels the most natural to you.

Remember to choose a hair style that will make YOU feel beautiful, comfortable and confident. Don’t worry about other peoples’ expectations. It can be really difficult to feel pressure to look a certain way or to please a certain person on your wedding day. The only thing you should worry about is what you want and what you want to wear for your soon-to-be spouse. After all, the day is about you both and the love you have for one another.
