Swoon-Worthy Wedding Hairstyles

Next to tackle on the list when you're creating a romantic bridal style is your wedding hair. Your lovely locks are your best assets, so why not flaunt them your wedding day? Whether you sport tousled, romantic wavy hair or a swoon-worthy updo, the bottomline is to keep things soft and relaxed.

Incorporate florals and ethereal accessories if you are going for a surreal, romantic wedding hairstyle that will wow every single one of your guests.

Alternatively, you can also add dainty bits of floral, foliage or a wreath to create a romantic bridal hairstyle. Lastly, if you don't feel like re-inventing the wheel, stick to the classic braided updo and add ribbons for a simply romantic look.
