Finalizing those last touches on your wedding planning journey is an exciting time. You’ve picked out a venue, a dress, flowers, and it’s almost time to say “I do!” When it comes to the day of your wedding, you want to look and feel beautiful. The dress is one of the most important and extravagant parts, but your hair and makeup can add that extra finished touch to keep you happy walking down the aisle. Below are a few hairstyle trends for your big day! Whether you want your hair in gentle braids, radiating down in beautiful curls, or swept up in a perfect updo, we have you covered at Weddings in Athens.
One go-to option is always a simplistic updo. For shorter hair, you can pin it up flawlessly and create a chic look that highlights the back of your wedding dress. If you want, you can always create a messier updo, with whimsical pieces hanging down for a more boho inspired look. This style also compliments bangs as well, and having your hair up and out of your face will keep you sharp and ready to go!

Classic Half Up Half Down
Feeling indecisive about keeping it down or pinning it up? Meet in the middle with a classic half up half down hairstyle. By pinning parts of your hair up, you have the option to straighten or curl your hair. Try adding some braids to section off your hair if you have thicker hair, or add volume by bumping it if you have shorter, thinner hair. This choice of hairstyle is a perfect compliment to any wedding dress, and will have you looking amazing on your big day.

A Fun Ponytail
Ponytails are a super trendy and easy option for your wedding hairstyle. Here, you can add tons of volume and tease your ponytail for a messier, boho style, or you can keep it slick and straight for a glamorized look. Play with pieces around your face to accent your face shape and use pins, flowers, or even ribbons to compliment your ponytail. A ponytail will look beautiful with your wedding dress, and will show off the back of your dress elegantly.

There is nothing wrong with sticking to traditional curls on your wedding day. Whether you have thick or thin hair, long or short, volumizing your curls will be sure to have all eyes on you as you walk down the aisle. Try parting it on one side and letting it hang off one shoulder, or add a headband to give yourself an extra touch of glam. The options with this hairstyle are endless and fun!

Trendy Boho Braids
If you’re looking for a more unique wedding hairstyle, braids are for you. Braids come in all different shapes, sizes, and looks, so this hairstyle has many options to choose from. Try a smaller braid that blends down into the larger braid for an all around braided hair look. Fishtails and 5 strand braids are also a fun look that can gently be layered over one shoulder for the ultimate picture perfect hairstyle.

Although voluminous curls are fun, if you’re looking for a more subtle hairstyle, beach waves are for you. Waves are simplistic and elegant, and will accent any wedding dress. Add a headband or some studded pins for an extra set of glam. If you’re having a beach wedding, waves are a perfect compliment to the venue, and will tie your wedding day together beautifully.

Add a Ribbon
Ribbons are unique and an adorable accessory for your wedding hairstyle. Add a piece of your childhood ribbon-wearing days and layer in a colorful ribbon that is sure to stand out and look amazing. Try using the color of your wedding scheme, or simply tie in a white lace ribbon at the end of a braid or ponytail.
Floral and Friendly
Compliment your bouquet with a personal touch of flowers to your own hair! Floral wedding hairstyles are harmonious and elegant. You can go big or small with the flower accessories you choose, the choice is yours. Add pops of color with vibrant flowers, or add in small touches of greenery throughout your curls for an earthy wedding hairstyle. This style is fun and open-ended for you to choose whichever type of floral accessory you please.
