Stunning Wedding Hair Updos
The question of whether you should wear your hair up or down on your wedding day is a question that has been asked for ages. It is really mostly a question of preference, and most probably dependent on the style of your dress. Dresses with low or open backs just ask for updos, nobody can deny that. For those interested in having their hair up during their big day, we have compiled 35 beautiful wedding hair updos that might just strike your fancy.
1Beautiful Double Low Braid
This is a gorgeous take on a wedding updo. These are two braids that were just basically pinned at the bottom of your head. It looks very simple, as it should, because your hair should only help complement your overall look. It should not be the highlight of the whole look. It is YOUR wedding, not your hair’s. We are loving the simple bejeweled hair comb as well.
2Thick Loose Bun
The beauty of this hairdo is greatly due to her hair color. Remember, ladies, to set an appointment with your trusted colorist before your big day so that your hair color can be updated – that is if you color your hair. Beautifully colored hair will give those extra beauty points on your big day.
3Big Loose Bun with Statement Hair Accessory

Ah, another classic. Here we see a neat chignon at the nape of our model’s neck. Currently, the easy-going look of loose buns and braids are at the head of the pack when it comes to wedding hairstyle popularity, but the classics will never disappear.

This hairstyle is just a work of art, really. If you are in the hunt for a showstopper, look no further. This will put the wow-factor on top of everything.

You can also choose to have a veil if you really want it, though it may just cover your amazing hair, but keep it as simple as possible so as to not go over the top.

23Minimalist Wedding Hair Up
When you want the sole focus of everyone to be on a specific something, everything around it must be minimal.

29Wedding Hair Updo with Flowers
Here is a sweet rendition to the classic milkmaid braids and accented by fresh flowers. With this hairstyle, you already have yourself a crown of braids, so it might not do to have a crown of flowers as well. Instead, opt for small flowers as accents. This can be quite suitable for a romantic garden wedding.
30Thick Braid Crown with Flowers
As mentioned in the previous picture, when you already have a crown of braids, it won’t do to have a crown of flowers as well. This is a perfect example as the model is facing forward. This gorgeous hairstyle is only accented by small flowers, which makes the overall look dainty and fresh, and not overpowering.
