And if you have no clue which route to take, imagine what might work best with the atmosphere of your celebration, your dress and your overall comfort level. (Having a black-tie soirée in December? Then beachy waves might feel out of place.) Scroll these stunning wedding hair ideas to inspire your day-of look, whether it's a sleek updo, messy braids or the best version of your natural curls.
