Wedding Hairstyles ~ What Works Best for a Destination Wedding!

One of our favorite topics at MTS is Destination Weddings! No, wait!  Brides?  Beach Brides?  Traveling Brides?  Heck ~ ANYTHING and EVERYTHING bridal!  We just can't get enough!   We love seeing the photos we receive from our newly married couples upon their return home.  All of us in the office gather together and Ohhh and Ahhh over the beauty of the couple, their gorgeous surroundings, the family members celebrating with them, and the general happiness that can be seen on the faces in each and every photo!

Since I've always been interested in hair, make-up, and all aspects of the beauty world, how the bride wore her hair is one of my favorite things to see.  Most brides that get married close to home have a 'dry run' with their hairstylist several weeks before the wedding to ensure they'll be happy with their wedding day look.  Our 'destination brides' don't have that luxury as Destination Wedding usually means away from home and outside: garden, gazebo, beach.  Because of this, your hairstyle should be natural, easy and look like you did it yourself in just a few minutes, yet it should last throughout the celebration.  Here's a few of my favorite styles...

Wearing your hair up with some flowers keeps you cool and your hair away from your face on a breezy day.  Dress it up or down to keep with the style of your gown, or add colors to coordinate with the rest of your color scheme. 

Feel free to let creativity shine, but remember to keep it light and easy.  Helmet head on a bride is not a good look.  Think Chic, feminine, romantic!

Show off your sunkissed smile and loose curls with a gorgeous seashell headband or something as simple as a tulle wrap with a flower.  It should keep your hair in place but not take away from the blushing bride! 

Dazzle your groom - and your hair - with sparkles!  A dainty starfish, a jeweled tiara, crystal combs.  They work in any hair type and length. And I believe you can never have enough sparkle!

Finally, you may choose to do nothing at all!  Casual, natural hair in your normal style will make you feel less self conscious and more like yourself.  Just who you want to be on your special day! 

 Remember, you didn't come all this way to look anything less than perfect!  Soft, natural, timeless beauty and don't forget to let the real you shine through!
