The Bun

If you are on a budget then the good old bun can come to your rescue on the big day. Don't be afraid to get creative with your wedding hairstyle and spice up this hairdo for the much-needed dramatic effect. Accessorize a simple bun worn low on the nape of the neck with live orchids or exotic flowers.


The half up, half down is another hot style this season. It works wonders for medium to long hair, and accentuates the beautiful neckline of your costume. This hairstyle can be worn in several variations, depending on your personal preferences. If you are undecided as to whether you want to wear your hair up or down and have been spending sleepless nights over, then fret no more!

Let it loose

Brides-to-be with short hair can let their hair down, literally! Consider leaving your hair loose and wavy for a soft yet chic look. With a little spray-on, your hair will look great for long, and won't need the touches for some time. An elegant hair pin with flowers or other decorations can give the hairdo a smooth, sleek and stylish finish.
