We all love a good celebrity wedding. Especially if they sell their story to the magazines and we get to see exactly what dress they were wearing, how they wore their hair and what the reception looked like. Of course most celeb weddings are more lavish and grandiose than most of us could ever recreate, but they are a useful source of inspiration. You may be able to recreate bits and pieces of your favourite celebrity couple's wedding such as the colour theme or the way the bride styled her hair.
Getting as many ideas as possible without being over-whelmed is the key to planning the perfect wedding. You can take inspiration from wedding fashion magazines and by looking at how others do it, this includes celebrities. As a society we have a huge fascination with celebrities, what they wear, what they do and especially how they get married. A wedding is a perfect excuse for a celebrity to spend vast amounts of money on a lavish celebration.
The hair styles of famous brides have always been a matter of interest to the public in general and, of course, to brides in particular as they plan their own wedding. In fact, they are one of the best sources of dream wedding beauty inspiration. There are plenty of magazines that specifically cover celebrity weddings so you are sure to be able to find some amazing inspiration.
Wedding style completely depends on what the bride wants to look like and her own personal style. One of the biggest mistakes a lot of brides make is to change their own style nearly beyond recognition when it comes to the wedding day. You still want to look like yourself on your big day, just a better version of you. Katharine McPhee was married in 2009 and wore her hair down in a very natural style on her wedding day. She commented that some brides tend to go overboard and drastically change their look for their wedding and she just wanted to look like herself.
The way you choose to wear your hair on your big day will largely depend on the location of your wedding. For example, if you opt for a countryside wedding then you may want to channel a bohemian look and accessorise with delicate flowers, or if you choose a grand church you may want to stick to a more formal style.
When Mariah Carey married Nick Cannon back in 2008 they chose to have the ceremony on a beach in the Bahamas. She mirrored the tropical location by wearing her hair in a similar way to her signature every day style, down and wavy with beautiful curls.
Eva Longoria Parker chose to wear her hair in a simple but sweet long, loose hair style with big waves for her wedding day. She is known for her fancy and sometime dramatic hair styles on the red carpet but for her wedding she opted for a more feminine and pretty style. Ultimately, every bride will have an idea of how they want to look on their wedding day and it is essential that they stick to this idea.
Catherine Zeta Jones opted for a big dramatic updo at her wedding. Her thick long hair was wrapped up and rested in a big bun on top of her head. She then accessorised with a unique and intricate bridal headband. This matched her full-length gown perfectly as it too was dramatic yet elegant.
Avril Lavigne showed the rest of us how to do modern verging on sexy bride with her pretty bright blonde waves back in 2006.
A bride's hair style on her big day depends on various factors including location and dress but the most important thing is that she feels happy and comfortable with how she looks. Her appearance should fit in with her personality and own personal style and shouldn't be a huge departure from her usual appearance. If you feel happy with how you look on your wedding day then it will show in your pictures and it will be a day to remember for the rest of your lives together!
