One of the biggest decisions you'll make when it comes to your bridal look is your wedding hairstyle. Many brides opt for a classic updo (or even a messy bun if you're Meghan Markle), but if you prefer to let your hair down in the most literal sense of the term, we've got some wedding hairstyle inspiration for you—straight from real brides.
Whether you embrace your hair's natural texture, glam it up with curls, or top it off with a hair accessory, free-flowing strands are effortlessly romantic and can look gorgeous with or without a veil. Plus, you'll definitely appreciate how fuss-free wearing your hair down can be—there's no need to worry about a lopsided 'do or losing bobby pins when you hit the dance floor. And if you think your hair is too short or too long to pull it off, think again, because countless brides nailed the look with bobs, lobs, and super-long locks.
Below, 30 ways to wear your hair down for your wedding, straight from the real brides who went for it. These ladies truly make a strong case for letting your hair down on the big day!
