Wedding Hairstyles For Every Type of Wedding Theme

On your wedding day, all eyes are on you (no pressure, of course!) but it is essential that your wedding hairstyle and makeup hold through at all times so that you’re always camera-ready. To guide you through this, we’ve assembled a few tips to help you pick among the best wedding hairstyles that will suit you so that you’re guaranteed to look your best!

But first things first, here are a few things to consider when choosing your wedding hairstyle, especially if you’re planning a destination wedding.

Consider your wedding venue

Are you getting married in a castle, or vineyard or maybe on a beach? Factoring in your wedding location is essential as you wouldn’t want to be under or over-dressed for your big day. For example, if you’re having your wedding ceremony in a castle, then adding some hair jewels or tiaras would compliment your royal look! On the other hand, if you’re planning a wedding in a vineyard in Tuscany, then a simple up-do with a rustic or boho splash may be more flattering.

Factor in the weather

If your destination wedding is on the beach or outdoors, hairstyling might sound easy and fuss-free – but in fact it’s quite the opposite! In this case, considering a full up-do for a hot, humid day or even windy or rainy weather might be the right approach (you’ll be thankful later!).

Create a mood board

Having a hair inspiration album can be a great tool when you discuss the hairstyle you want with your wedding hairstylist. But, instead of thinking about how you should look, think about how you imagine yourself on your wedding day. Be open to suggestions from your stylist, after all they want you to be beautiful, comfortable and confident on your big day! Meanwhile, if you’re planning your wedding in Italy, then head on to WedBoard to create your own beauty mood board. Best part? You can match with hair stylists and makeup artists in Italy based on your personal style.

Now, let’s dive into the most beautiful wedding hairstyles we’ve seen to get you inspired! No matter the style you’re going for, make sure to also factor in your wedding theme.

Vintage wedding hairstyles

Vintage wedding décor is all about romantic and delicate details: lace accents, pastel floral prints, strands of pearls… All of which create a combination of feminine, classic, shabby and chic wedding aesthetic. So if you’re going for the romantic vintage look then an updo with pearl accessories, or sharp finger waves, or even a low chignon might just make the cut (no pun intended)!

Rustic wedding hairstyles

While a rustic wedding could include a lot of organic, outdoorsy elements, your hairstyle should be simple, natural and gentle (even slightly messy!). In this case, a half up half down wedding hairstyle is the perfect way to go as it gives you a natural yet elegant look. It’s practical for almost any hair type (straight, curly or wavy hair). Best part? You can even accessorize it with fresh flowers, leaves, and hair jewelry to fit right in with your wedding mood. Alternatively, you can also choose an updo or soft braids and accessories them with a natural tiara or flower crown.

Al fresco garden bridal hairstyles

Al Fresco weddings are warm and welcoming, inspired by home and family style dinners. But despite being gorgeous, outdoor weddings can be a little risky since your perfectly set hairstyle can be fragile due to the weather. So if you’re going for an outdoor wedding, when weather conditions may be a little windy or even humid, opting for a strong hold hairstyle such as an updo, a braided hairdo or a half up half down look, might just be the perfect solution for you.

Finally, when choosing your bridal hairstyle, look to what you find yourself comfortable and confident with, regardless of the trends. So make sure to have a hair trial before your wedding day so you guarantee you’re happy with the final look!
