10 Romantic Wedding Hairstyles

Trying to decide how you’ll wear your locks come the Big Day is not an easy decision – you’re looking for a style that will stand the test of time (possibly windswept weather and dance floor antics and the like too) and that makes you feel a-mazing and of course, like yourself. We’ve scoured the bridal blogosphere to bring you a range of fabulously romantic wedding hairstyles that will appeal to a range of brides whether you love your structured updos or you’re the quintessential boho bride and have your heart set on lovely loose locks. Here are 10 romantic styles to inspire you….

Soft and ethereal,  this modern updo is divine. This low bun has lots of gorgeous texture and we love how the loose hair is looped on top creating a romantic, laid back wedding hairstyle.

One word sums up this bridal style – dreamy. Loose waves, simple twists and lots of beautiful texture and movement combine to create this low fuss, boho bridal wedding hairstyle.

If you want full on glamour – think big waves. If the 20s style headpiece is a little too Gatsby for your liking – a vintage slide, floral comb or curly waves as is will look just as gorgeous and glamorous.

Sometimes when we think of updos, we think of overly hair-sprayed solid styles but this beautiful ‘do is far from rigid – the hair is turned under and teased in to place to create a soft and romantic roll, with a simple vine hairpiece adding a touch of rustic elegance to this wedding hairstyle.

Half up half down hairdos are a brilliant compromise for brides that like a little structure but don’t want to forgo their loose locks altogether and still want that soft swishy feel  – the hair is woven back from the face in simple, soft twists while curls cascade around it.

This tousled, messy French twist oozes sex-appeal, it has that just out of bed look without being too unkempt. Perfect for brides that want their hair off their face but don’t like too much structure – the soft tendrils falling to the side give it a modern twist. See the DIY here!

Braids or plaits have been big news in the bridal world this past year and they show no sign of slowing down for 2015. This style that probably haunted you in school has been given a modern update with quite literally a zillion cool and flattering ways to weave them in to your hair. We love this fun updo which sits elegantly against the nape of the neck, topped off beautifully with a whimsical oversized flower. See 10 more gorgeous bridal braid styles here!

We love this slightly messy, wavy updo brimming with texture – the loose tendrils frame the face perfectly, softening this elegant look.
