Have You Ever Considered Changing Your Hairstyle for the Wedding Reception?

As the bride, you want to look nothing less than stunning as you walk down the aisle, as you dance your first dance, and all throughout the Big Day, until you bid your guests farewell.

Obviously, your wedding dress matters A LOT when it comes to the way you feel and how you look on your wedding day. But the way you accessorize the dress, the makeup and the hair matter a lot too.

So, if you can change your dress for the wedding reception, why wouldn’t you change one of the complementary elements of it too – such as your hairstyle, for example?

How to do it? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Let your hair down. Did you wear your hair in a bun for the wedding ceremony? The simplest way to change your hairstyle for the big party is to simply let it down. It takes about five minutes to pull out the bobby pins holding the bun, to re-arrange the hair a bit and maybe add one or two cute accessories that go with your reception wedding dress. That’s it – you’re ready to party!

·       Let the braid down. Not sure about leaving your hair completely down for the reception? How about wearing it in one (or more) braid(s) pulled up during the wedding ceremony and leaving the braid down for the reception? This casual, carefree style is bound to suit any bride, and it works with a variety of wedding gown necklines too – so you will definitely love it!

·       Just change the accessories. If you wore really elegant bridal hair accessories for the ceremony, why not switch it up a bit for the wedding reception and change your hairstyle just a little, by using different accessories? Switching from pearl accessories to flowers or a flower crown can change your entire look, just enough to complement your reception appearance!

·       Pull it up. You can always wear your hair down in gorgeous angelic curls for the ceremony and then rapidly pull it up in a slightly messy bun for the wedding reception. Doing this will give you plenty of freedom to move around (and dance, of course).
