The finger wave look was a popular one in the earlier 1900s but still looks good today. It will help accommodate your whole image if you’re aiming for a somewhat retro look. This works in instances where the wedding is themed after the 20s or 30s. For an engaging old-fashioned look, this style will fit the occasion perfect.
Flower crowns look good with a lot of different hairstyles. Several women with longer hair use this style with a fancy bun or even silky curls. If your dress is a bright color, using flowers that are just as bright can give the whole look a united ensemble.

With this updo look, your hair is out of the way of your face, letting you display your makeup. Adding a unique wedding band and veil will help draw attention to it as well.
7Fancy Side Buns
The side bun can come in several variations. You can use a high or low side bun to give attention to certain styles. Smooth, silky top hair with a low side bun is good for all occasions so a wedding will fit just fine. You can also add some fancy elegant waves on top with a side bun, like the image displays for a more fancier look.
This hairdo is sure to stand out at any wedding. The big curls are a little untraditional which is good for a revolutionary statement at a wedding. Keep in mind that this style clashes with big fluffier dresses.
With skinnier dreads like the image, you can create all types of fancy and sharp looks. Curl, roll, or twist them in any way and you will still get a nice textured hairstyle.

A simple look, just like the short and natural look, but with a one layer veil and some accessories, this look can generate a ravishing look. A necklace with bright gems along with some gem or pearl earrings will make the look more complex and beautiful.
13Top Knot Braids
