Austyn could never have predicted that she’d eventually marry her dashing high-school prom date, Dane. But when their trip to the beach for Austyn’s 24th birthday turned into a surprise proposal, well, lovely Austyn knew she’d made the right choice. The pair wed in front of 250 of their nearest and dearest in grand style, and partied the night away surrounded by tall candelabras, dramatic floral arrangements, and tons of glitz n’ glam. Sounds gorgeous? Just wait ’til you see the sweet pics. Congrats and best wishes to the happy couple!

When I started dress shopping for my wedding, one question that came up again and again as I tried on dresses was, “What kind of veil do you want?” To be honest, the question always caught me off guard because I knew there was only one answer: “It depends on the dress!” Your entire wedding look, including your jewelry, veil and wedding hairstyle, should absolutely match with the wedding dress you pick! So how can you match your hairstyle to your wedding dress? Don’t fret, we’ve got some great tips on coordinating your hairstyle to your wedding dress with ease.
Backless wedding dresses are very on trend. And whether it’s completely open in the back, partially so or just the illusion of an open back with lace detailing, you’ll likely want to show off that sexy back! Consider an up-do for your wedding day hairstyle to give your back the spotlight. If you aren’t feeling an up-do but still want something that’s flattering, you can also try a longer hairstyle where your hair is pulled and styled to the front and side. Think: An ultra-glamorous low side pony with curls.
A one-shoulder gown is great for showing off fabulous arms and a little skin; so don’t have your hair covering that up! A half-up half-down wedding hairstyle is a great way to balance off this asymmetrical look. If your wedding is a bit on the formal side, an up-do works really well with this look, too. And since the focus on the gown is showing off the shoulder, you can also rest assured that just about any veil length works.
Strapless and sweetheart-neck dresses are still some of the most popular wedding dress styles. The good news is, they not only flatter just about every figure, they work with just about any hairstyle, too! If you are having a church ceremony or concerned about showing too much skin, consider a long hairstyle instead of a half-up or formal up-do.
If you are having a beach wedding or a more casual affair, embrace the afternoon vibe with a non-fussy look. Long hair styled in beach waves or even loose braids and half-up half-down looks are perfect for beach weddings. This is one look where you’ll want to avoid the formal up-do and have fun with your wedding day hairstyle.
