You’ve got the dress, the nails and the partner: now all you need is the bridal hairstyle. No longer just a vehicle for a veil, your wedding day hairstyle is a choice as important as your dress (but perhaps not quite as important as your choice of partner).
Well, worry no more: we’ve rounded up the most gorgeous bridal hairstyles for your weekend perusing pleasure. No matter your hair length or wedding day style, we’ve got your dream hair right here. Get ready to say I do.
Volume at the crown? Check. Beachy waves? Check. Beautiful flowers pinned to one side? Check. This boho-inspired style is pure glamour. (Photo via StyleMePretty)
This sleek, chic ballerina bun is perfect for a modern bride who doesn't want her hair to overpower the rest of her bridal look. So Audrey Hepburn! (Photo via Brooklyn Photography)
Sleek hair and a delicate headpiece...what could possibly be better? We love the way the pearls in her hair are echoed by the pearls in her earrings. (Photo via What Katy Did Next)
If you're rocking bob-length hair, a slightly retro-inspired look is perfection. This beautifully voluminous style can be created with a wide-barrelled curling iron or large hot rollers, and when sealed with flexible hairspray, is sure to last through your entire reception.

A messy bridal braid is always stylish—we love this elegantly disheveled three-strand braid. If you don't have naturally wavy hair, loosely curl your locks before you plait to help get this look. (Photo via Alixanne Loosle Photography)

This style is literally the best of all possible worlds—combining elegant curls, a flower-shaped bun, inside-out fishtail braid and loose tendrils, it's a beautifully elaborate wedding day hairstyle. Total princess status. (Photo via Mon Cherie Bridal)
Ulta-long locks and an inside-out braid makes wavy hair eminently bridal. Keep the curls near your face flat and flipped out, rather than in, to avoid looking too much like a '70s throwback. (Photo via Hair and Makeup by Steph)
Believe it or not, this is a fishtail braid: each individual strand has been gently loosened after braiding to give it this fabulously flat look. (Photo via The Hairy Truth)
Much as we love elaborate updos, we love simple bridal hairstyles even more. Hair worn loosely curled with a slightly uneven center part is unbelievably elegant. Bonus: this style also works if you're a bridesmaid or beloved guest. Who says brides have all the fun? (Photo via Tec Petaja Photography)
For the bride who seriously want to bring it: a retro-curled style, complete with side-swept curls and (naturally) a vampy bright lip. If you have a lob, this is your wedding day hair wish granted. (Photo via Elstile)
Love ponytails but feel like they might not be "bridal" enough for your big day? Sweep your cascade of curls over to one side for a gorgeous wedding day look! (Photo via Amelie Orrange Photography)
An updo with delicate greenery pinned into it is absolutely beautiful, and a wonderful way to incorporate florals into your wedding day style. Make sure you choose flowers with a woody stem; fleshy stemmed blooms tend to wilt quickly. (Photo via Troy Grover)
