At Updos For I Dos, we understand that brides come in all styles, from the allure of full lace and long sleeves to the sleek sophistication of thinly strapped silk gowns! When choosing the perfect hairstyle, start by considering the overall vibe of your style and wedding theme. For more intricate dresses, we typically recommend our brides opt for a simpler hairstyle, and for simpler gowns, feel free to go all out with intricate details. Our hairstylists provide a detailed consultation at every trial, getting to know you and your dress to guide you seamlessly through your wedding hairstyle journey!

Brides today are loving the charm of modern lace, showcasing a range of captivating details and necklines! From boat necks and plunging V’s, to strapless and the on-trend off-the-shoulder choice, diversity reigns. Our hairstylists at Updos For I Dos ensure that your chosen hairstyle compliments the unique features of your dress, enhancing your overall bridal lure. Our stylists specialize in tailoring hairstyles to match the specific characteristics of your chosen neckline, ensuring a breathtaking bridal look that radiates confidence and individuality!

Should I Wear a Veil, Hair Accessory, or Both?

Veils and hair accessories are the cherries on top of your bridal ensemble! Contrary to common misconceptions, you can effortlessly combine both for a truly stunning and harmonious look. Our hairstylists are highly skilled at incorporating veils and accessories into your wedding day hairstyle! On your wedding day, your Updos For I Dos hairstylist will firmly secure your hair accessory to your hairstyle, and then show a friend or family member how to insert and remove your veil so that it won’t shift your hairstyle! 

PS: here’s a pro tip! Bring your veil and hair accessories along to your trial; this will ensure that every element seamlessly aligns with your vision! 

What’s Trending? Hairstyles & Wedding Dresses

In 2023, the trendiest bridal hairstyles were a mix of Hollywood glam waves, tousled high updos, and low chic buns! When deciding on your wedding day hairstyle, it is important to consider what’s trending, but at the end of the day, what matters most is what you love! Our hairstylists are committed to continuing their education and always stay up to date with the latest hair and makeup trends, so rest assured, you’re always in the most capable hands when working with an Updos For I Dos pro

When it comes to planning your wedding look, considering current hair and dress trends is undoubtedly essential for staying chic and on-point. However, the true magic lies in finding a harmonious balance between trendiness and personal preference. While it's tempting to be swayed by the latest fashions, staying true to your unique style ensures that you feel authentic and confident on your big day. Your wedding look is a reflection of your personality and individuality, so incorporating elements that resonate with your personal preferences ensures a timeless and genuinely meaningful ensemble. At Updos For I Dos, we believe that trends should enhance, not overshadow, your inherent style, resulting in a wedding day look that's both fashionable and authentically you!

Does Weather Play a Role in Determining My Wedding Hairstyle?

In short, YES! When it comes to planning your wedding look, we always recommend our brides consider the weather when deciding on their wedding day look. Most brides dream of a picturesque and perfect sunny outdoor ceremony, but, oh no! It’s looking like the forecast is going to throw in some rain. Please don’t let this ruin your special day! Our highly experienced hairstylists are here to help guide you. Typically, we will suggest going for styles like fully or half updos – they're not just gorgeous but also have the durability to stand up to any wild weather that may occur! At the end of the day, all we truly care about is that our brides feel confident and carefree on their biggest day, rain or shine.
