Your Wedding Dress Neckline and Hairstyle

Choosing the right hairstyle to pair with your wedding gown can be an intimidating task and because this topic is one we constantly hear brides-to-be talk about, we found it necessary to dedicate a post just for it.

Two very important things to keep in mind when looking for your hairstyle is that:

1. Your personal style should shine through in your wedding day look

2. The neckline of your dress should match your hairstyle

In order to help you narrow down the "right" hairstyle it is important that you consider the following information to help narrow down your look. Think about the neckline and imagine your hair sitting on top of it. If you immediately say, "Uh, no" then you know you have to wear your hair up because you do not like the idea of your dresses neckline being obstructed by your hair. Another tip that we give our brides is that if you are not sure how you feel about wearing your hair up or down, we suggest to stick to a hairstyle that feels comfortable to you so that you feel like yourself. If you are not an "updo" kind-of-gal please do not wear your hair up on your wedding day- doing this will make you feel uncomfortable and not as confident. Doing the opposite of what you normally do will have you second guessing yourself the entire night, guaranteed. Thankfully though, you live in an era where trial runs are "a thing" so if you are undecided about your hairstyle book yourself a run through with your bridal team two to three months before your big day and by the end of the appointment you'll have a better idea of what look to go with.
