They say your wedding is the most important day of your life, and while that may not be true across the board, it’s certainly an extremely special occasion. It’s a time to celebrate love, gather your friends and family, and, of course, look your absolute best. And what better place to gain inspiration than celebrity weddings? The stars are constantly sparking beauty trends in everyday life, so it makes perfect sense that their nuptials (specifically celebrity wedding hairstyles) would serve as a source of inspiration for brides-to-be.
For most, the goal on your wedding day is to look (and feel) like you, but an elevated version of yourself. It’s okay to step outside of your comfort zone, but not so far that you won’t feel comfortable on your big day. For instance, if you never wear your hair in tight updos because it gives you a headache, you probably don’t want to suddenly decide you’re going to tough it out for your wedding day. Instead, it’s best to stick with something similar to what you would wear in normal life — but turned up a few notches. Ariana Grande’s wedding hair was a perfect example — she wore her signature sleek half-up pony, but her slightly curled ends and silk bow gave it a decidedly bridal feel.
