Sifting through photos of wedding hairstyles you want to copy can feel like a full-time job, especially when you’re not really sure which wedding hairstyle will work best for you, your dress, or your wedding venue. And yes, you should DEFINITELY consider all three of those before deciding, since whether you’re getting married in a strapless Wedding Dress on the beach or a long-sleeve gown in a ballroom will definitely help lead the way in terms of which wedding hairstyle you should go with.
But THE most important factor to consider when deciding on a wedding hairstyle is how comfortable it will be throughout your wedding day and night. You shouldn’t have to worry about fussing with your hair or if it will hold up after you exchange your vows. A good hairstylist will ask you all these questions and more, but here are a couple things you should think about answering BEFORE your first appointment. Or if you’re styling your hair on your own (or a friend is helping you), it’s definitely a good idea to get this figured out before looking for a wedding hairstyle you love.
1. Do I have to worry about weather?
If you’re getting married outside and there’s a chance you’ll be sweating, rained on, or that the humidity will be off the charts, you’ll want to take all of the above into consideration. If your hair is prone to frizz you will definitely want to consider an up-do. If your hair never frizzes (I hate you, BTW) then by all means show off those straight locks and let them fly free by wearing them down. Just be honest with yourself and pick a hairstyle that will work with you and not against you.
2. Does my hair hold onto a style easily?
If you don’t style your hair often, then this might be harder to answer. But if you do, you might know whether or not your hair falls an hour or two after curling it, or if it tends to pouf out after straightening. If it does I highly recommend going with an up-do vs. wearing your hair down. And remember: Hairspray is your friend. But only the kind that won’t give you crunchy hair! (TIP: I actually love MorracanOil’s line of hairsprays for this very reason).
OK now that all of that is out of the way, I picked out a few of my favorite wedding hairstyles for long hair, below. Whether you’re looking for a boho braid or a mod twist, we’ve got you covered.
Do you have an idea of which type of wedding hairstyle you want? Let us know in the comments section and we’ll help you look!
I love the baby’s breath in this waterfall braid.
If my hair could stay like this all night I would definitely consider it. Also, a big accessory takes this look from night-out to wedding instantly.
Chignons are classic and beautiful, especially on blonde hair!
I think this boho-braided wedding hairstyle is perfect for an outdoor ceremony and reception.
This fishtail braid is probably one of the more high maintenance wedding hairstyles you can have, but it works if you make sure it doesn’t look TOO perfect. I think it’s great for indoor or outdoor weddings, casual or black-tie.
The right hair accessory can turn any simple hairstyle into something really elegant. I love this hairpiece by LottieDaDesigns
I seriously want this hairstyle (and that hair color). I would consider this look for an outdoor, more casual wedding. My one concern would be how long it’s going to last, but I think a good hairstylist can make it work!
This look is perfect for a backyard wedding or garden ceremony. Sweet and simple yet still modern.
This is a great wedding hairstyle that’s structured without being too perfect (which means a piece or two could unravel and it would still look great).
For those brides DIY’ing your wedding hair, I love this style/tutorial from blogger Keiko Lynn.
Wedding season is among us, and with the warm weather, sunny skies and the bold-bright colors of the summer, it’s no wonder this time of year is the resident go-to for weddings. As a summer bride, you’ll likely be looking for a way to differentiate your wedding from the other weddings guests may be attending. And while we know yours will be their favorite (obviously!) we’re here to provide you with some inspirational summer wedding ideas from centerpieces and cocktails to favors and treats that will make your wedding the standout of the season.
To get your creative spirits in motion, we suggest this handy exercise.
Step 1: Close your eyes, and think of summer.
Step 2: What’s the first thing that comes to mind? Perhaps its lemons or watermelon? Maybe a picnic by the water or an outdoor barbeque.
Step 3: Now, think about the endless ways you can incorporate that idea of the summer season into your wedding. The options are plentiful!
Stumped? No worries, consider this gallery your muse, and click through to see some of our favorite summer wedding ideas. Hint: An adorable lemonade stand (bonus for spiked lemonade), bite-sized watermelon slices and a picnic-inspired rehearsal dinner. Need we say more?

“For Keveza ‘La Vie En Rose’ is a state of being: romantic lace and a hypnotic blush palette come together in a magical summer dream.

French hand sewn laces, Chantilly lace and “La Vie En Rose”, a custom lace created specifically for Spring 2017, are offered throughout the collection of timeless silhouettes.”

While we love spring and summer weddings, there are SO many gorgeous things you can do with fall and winter weddings, and that includes Mother of the Bride dresses. Aside from finding the perfect fall Bridesmaid dresses (and of course your own Wedding Dress), there are a ton of options for beautiful Mother of the Bride dresses that will really stand out.
From deep hues like marsala and hunter green to cooler colors like emerald blue or icy grey, we’re loving the Mother of the Bride dresses we found in the gallery above.
Keep in mind that even though some moms might be afraid to be a little more fashion forward when it comes to Mother of the Bride dresses, it’s a great opportunity to support different styles you think might look amazing on her (that she wouldn’t normally wear). Whether it’s a knee-length cocktail dress, body-hugging long-sleeve maxi dress, or a sleeveless or strapless ballgown, your mom will look elegant in any of these Mother of the Bride dresses for a fall or winter wedding. Just keep in mind that the style should definitely reflect your wedding venue and your Wedding Dress. If you’re getting married in a ballgown you’ll want to opt for a full-length dress for your mom. However, if your dress is more A-line or sheath, you can go search for a wide range of Mother of the Bride styles.

Cape Town-based bridal designer Elbeth Gillis has released two capsule collections for 2017: “Milk and Honey”, which offers mix-and-match separates, and featured here today, “Luxury”, which consists of eight sensually elegant Wedding Dresses. This year is all about the backs and shoulders, and of course, luxury as the designer source only the best fabrics (including sumptuous satins and silk chiffons) from around the world.
“Backs plunge to the hips in a variety of ways, from keyhole openings to illusion backs and lace tattoos. Necklines also reveal more decolletage, but with a sophistication that is quite becoming. Silhouettes include everything one could ask for, from a satin ball gown to flowy skirts to figure-fitting gentle mermaids.” The Elbeth Gillis 2017 collections will be available in stores at the end of September.

Delicately dreamy and incredibly romantic, Mira Zwillinger’s 2017 bridal collection captures that magical, fleeting moment when spring’s first blooms emerge from a wintry sleep:
“It’s that beautifully ethereal-like moment, when the first buds of life appear on the naked branches, still shuddering from the cold winter. It’s that moment when nature starts to whisper and hum its tune of rebirth and renewal. The moment of humble grace, right before the flourishing blossom. The moment of pristine stillness, hinting at the eye-opening magnificence to come.
The Whisper of Blossom 2017 collection embraces palettes of nudes and roses, combining shimmering branches and vines with gentle, hand-cut flowers, a nod before they blossom into greatness. The gowns, with light-as-air appearance, are exquisitely feminine with their sequined clusters, silk petals, and sheath silhouettes, float into the magic of nature, that whisper of blossom.”
