Wedding Hairstyles To Match Your Wedding Dress

Guest Blog by Ayn Bernos, Content Manager for Wedding Favy

Nearing the big day? Whether you’re scheduling that appointment with your hairstylist or still in the early stages of planning, it’s best to know which hairdos look amazing with which dress styles. Plan ahead and visualize your dream wedding look while going through this treat we’ve prepared for you:

Chignon and Sweetheart Neckline

Sophia Tolli Wedding Dress Vancouver Washington

The chignon is one of the most popular bridal hairstyles, and for good reason. Pair this romantic look with an equally romantic silhouette, just like a sweetheart ball gown, and you’re bound to sweep everybody off their feet -- your groom, most especially! A chignon and this Sophia Tolli gown are a perfect match for when you walk down the aisle.

Updo and Boat Neck

The boat neck is simple yet elegant, modest yet sophisticated. Pull your hair away from your face in a sleek updo, so you can avoid having too much on your decolletage area. A beautiful barrette or floral hairclip would be a perfect update for this ‘do. Check out this Willowby by Watters gown for inspiration.

Loose Waves and V-neck

Chic Nostalgia Wedding Dress Vancouver Washington

The v-neck creates a beautiful, feminine silhouette, and it’s perfectly finished with loose waves. Weddings are a wind-in-your-hair kind of occasion after all, and you deserve to feel as carefree and beautiful as you look. Shake your locks, throw that bouquet, and feel extra confident in your skin. That is what this Chic Nostalgia gown is all about.

Curls and Lace Details

Essense of Australia Wedding Dress Vancouver Washington

Complement intricate lace details with long curls and a simple hair accessory, such as this headband. Keep your hair tucked behind your ear on one side, and let it flow freely on the other. Overall, this is a sweet, versatile look that can accompany you from the chapel to the dance floor. We think this Essence of Australia explains why.

Beach Waves and A Low Back Dress

Morilee Wedding Dress Vancouver Washington

Who says that beach waves are only for the beach? As it turns out, we think beach waves look great for bridal affairs, too! This backless serpentina gown from Morilee looks ethereal and elegant when long locks cascade right above it.

Tight Updo and a Dramatic Train

Pronovias Wedding Dress Vancouver Washington

Total opposites, brilliant match. When you have a dramatic train, such as the one on this tiered tulle gown from the Pronovias Collection, it’s best to keep the rest of your bridal look simple. A tight updo will provide a refined silhouette that is as striking as the bride that dons it.

Laidback Waves and Laidback Lace

Wtoo by Watters Wedding Dress Vancouver Washington

There is something special about this Wtoo by Watters look. It’s a simple enough silhouette that uses intricate lace fabric, that can both work as a boho chic wedding dress or a cathedral gown. The tiebreaker? Your choice of hairstyle. Laidback waves are perfect for bohemian-themed ceremonies, where you’re free to shrug, “I woke up like this.”

Green is the New Blue

According to the color experts, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017, “Greenery” (15-0343 ) is the hue to be inspired by. The color is a perfect fit when it comes to styling your wedding. “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. What was once known as a spring and summer hue, can now be utilized all year.

It’s easy to incorporate this vibrant and earthy color. You can’t go wrong with nature’s neutral, whether you are sharing your nuptials in the park woods, surrounded by the vines of a northwest winery, or simply in-hand down the aisle. Seeded Eucalyptus, Dusty Miller and Laurel are just a few florals trending.

“Though we’re sad to say goodbye to rose quartz and serenity, we’re welcoming greenery with open arms.” says brides.com.

With the hustle and bustle of today’s lifestyle, we’re seeing many brides looking for more natural options. What better way than to pair greenery with an unstructured gown flirting with florals, intricate laces and accessories that are light and airy. Start your ceremony with a veil but switch to a flower crown for your reception celebration.

“Hint, it’s garden fresh and fabulous” says The Knot. For more inspo check out: https://www.theknot.com/content/pantone-color-of-the-year-2017
