it’s true! we do have the most glamorous brides. don’t worry- you too can be a starlet. there are so many styles to choose from it can be kind of overwhelming. we can say from experience that it’s important to be true to yourself. if you never ever ever wear your hair up, then don’t pick your wedding day to do it for the first time. we guarantee you won’t like the way you look in the photos, even if you are glamorous. if you are a bohemian-chic messy hair type then don’t opt for slick smooth styles on your wedding day. finally, consider the weather. wearing your hair down in spring or in fall can make perfect sense while swept back styles are more forgiving in the heat and humidity of the summer. take a look below at some of our favorite wedding hair stylings from the last two seasons. see you on the runway!
romantic beach hair – this is our lovely bride tori from 2010. i love the twisted and tucked style. it’s so romantic and pretty. tori had a very formal rosecliff wedding, but i thought this undone hairdo suited her perfectly. she’s looked as amazing posing on the beach as she did twirling around the ballroom floor. the flower is a beautiful touch and the veil tucked in low is a nice compromise for ladies who don’t want their veil around their face.
smooth low bun with striking flower accent - graceful franny could really pull off this beautiful summery look. she didn’t wear a veil, but added an element of interest with this gorgeous bloom tucked behind her ear. franny had a preppy summer wedding in a field near the ocean. she looked absolutely perfect all day thanks to the fresh, smooth style.
smooth side pony with flower and low veil – erica got married on nantucket. i love the classic, sporty, playful style she chose for her hair. the side pony shows off her beautiful locks without hiding her delicate collarbone and the neckline of her gown.
hollywood glam- jolie was married this november at the 4 seasons in boston. we didn’t plan on taking too many photos outside and we had a nice dry fall day. her hair is naturally thick with great body so it takes a curl really well. she planned her wedding around a vintage hollywood theme, so this style was perfect for her.
beachy chic updo- jennifer was married at the castle hill lighthouse overlooking the ocean and the newport bridge. her hair is lovely in a loosely pulled back “messy” chignon. this style has such great texture while still looking soft and feminine. it looks great swept back of her face, but with a face like hers you can’t really go wrong.
looped side bun – we are big fans of any hair that is styled to the side. meg’s adorable side bun is perfect for he summer bellemer wedding. we went traipsing all over newport for photos. meg got in and out of the trolley more than a few times without so much as a hair out of place.
soft springy curls- roxanne’s wedding was in the early spring while the weather was still cool. we had planned outside photos but at the last minute it down poured. she looks so soft and beautiful with her cascading curls. i especially love the shorter pieces that frame her face.
sleek chignon- maria is a classic, ala grace kelly. nuff’ said.
vintage glam side bun with a twist- kaelyn’s side bun with curls and twists was the perfect choice for her winter vintage glam wedding. the bridesmaids wore variations of the side bun and side pony. said it before, but we can’t get enough of anything on the side. fries come on the side and so does ice cream… see what we mean?
super soft and sexy – elayna manages to look sweet, demure, sexy, and sassy all rolled into one. i’m not sure how she did it but her hair definitely has something to do with it.
side pony with curl and bling- erica sported the sporty fresh flowered pony above. katie is lovely in a polished sparkly side pony. when i saw her with this hair do it literally took my breath away. doesn’t she do a lovely impression of an estee lauder ad?
