stunning bridal updos for 2017

So you’ve bagged the ring, booked the venue and bought the dress – now it’s time to think about your wedding hairstyle. While we adore a half-up or all-down hairstyle, we particularly love a soft and flattering up-do. A wedding up-do is the epitome of romance, and it lends itself to a range of hairstyles that suit every bride out there. Take a peek at our favourite wedding up-do hairstyles that brides are going to be rocking down the aisle in 2017…

We’ll start with a classic chignon – this timeless style has always been a huge hit when it comes to wedding hairstyles and it seems this look is here to stay. Whether you want to channel Hollywood glamour or English Garden charm, you can effortlessly create it with a chignon. Add a few loose curls to soften the style, and accessorise with chandelier drop earrings or a dainty headpiece. The chignon also works beautifully with or without a veil – the choice is completely yours!

Bohemian braids have become more and more popular over the last few years, and there are so many ways you can incorporate them into your wedding up-do. From a side braid to a milkmaid braid – a braid is the perfect choice if you want a feminine yet natural hairstyle that will turn heads. Add a fabulous finishing touch to a braid-inspired hairstyle with a floral hair vine or a pretty flower crown.

What could be more elegant than a ballerina bun? This chic hairstyle is a wonderful up-do if you’ve got luscious long hair that needs taming. The perfect choice if you want to keep your hair under control throughout your special day, the ballerina bun looks exquisite paired with droplet earrings or a statement necklace.

This utterly beautiful hairstyle suits any hair length, wedding theme or bride-to-be and you really can’t go wrong with it. Wear with a veil, or accessorise with some dazzling headpieces to add extra sparkle!

There are so many wonderful wedding up-dos to choose from, but opting for softer styles really does give your bridal look an extra drop of romance, charm and style.
