2020 Wedding Hairstyles

2020 Wedding Hairstyles

All brides want to love their wedding hairstyles! If you are getting married in 2020 you’ll need some inspiration to plan your 2020 wedding hairstyles. Even if you’re a low-maintenance bride who barely brushes her hair – you’ll want to decide on a complimentary style. We’ve put together some of the most popular styles for this year.  If you don’t know what you want your wedding hairstyle to be, this is a great place to start.

Pre-Wedding Hairstyle Research

You’ll want to consider your face shape when you look at hairstyle options. For example, an oval face is the most versatile. You’ll be able to rock chignon, up, down, braided or half up-half down, pretty much whatever style you want. If you have an oval shaped face consider a side-part style with sleek ponytails to give the illusion of higher cheekbones. If you have a rounded or square face, consider having part of your hair down to lengthen your look. Play hair dresser in the mirror while you look for hair ideas. Clip different styles and see which one makes you feel the most beautiful.

First, romantic half up-half down Boho styles will be a sure favorite.

The boho wedding hairstyle can be paired with flowers as well for that extra glam! Loose, beachy waves go well with the half up-half down hair style and we love how simple it is. Add in a few messy braids as well to give it a more medieval look if you’d like!

Second, is the braided hairstyle.

There is something both fun and classic about a braid. Braids are not just for little girls. The loose braids can lead into a bun, continue in a braid, or into a half-up hairstyle. There are so many braided 2020 wedding hairstyles you are bound to find one you love.

Third, we’ve got the fun classic made new, a top knot!

If you’d like to keep hair out of your face but still look refined and gorgeous this is the do for you. These styles can be anything from classic fishtail braid, firm beehive with a French roll up or a simple ballerina top knot. The sky’s the limit with a top knot. There are many combinations that are perfect for the classic bride.

And in opposition to the top knot, we’ve got the low bun.

Whether you wear it on the side or at the nape of your neck this is a great option to keep hair contained but still glam.

No matter what style you choose, it can be accessorized with flowers, jewelry, or hair clips. If you do your research, your hair will not be a concern on your big day. Choose an experienced hairstylist. Then, it will be easy to find the right style so you can relax and enjoy your wedding day.

British Themed Wedding

British Themed Wedding

Brides, listen up for the next hot thing in 2015! As always there are options for you to customize your day but we’re loving the British Themed Wedding.

Who doesn’t love Princess Kate’s flawless style and elegance? Downtown Abbey is also making quite the splash in the U.S. To get this royal look it’s all about simple: tables bare or covered in vintage lace and think about trying floral decorations hanging. Now your guests won’t have to head bob around the centerpieces to see each other. You can use flowers that are in season to save money and you’ll also save money because the centerpieces should be natural and flowing.

British Themed Wedding

For your wedding hair we’re liking the loose, wild moor waves brides are sporting. You can add pieces like flowers or jewels to highlight.
British Themed Wedding

The English tea theme can’t be taken too far and it’s not just for the bridal shower! You can use this to tastefully decorate your entire wedding reception. From big bows to striped chair decorations, you can create the illusion of being in a castle garden. Also, how about using lanterns to further that illusion of being in a fairy ring or in the old highlands. They are easy to assemble, some don’t even require real candles so the fire hazard aspect is taken out.

Whatever your vision for a British invasion on your wedding, let your imagination take over. You can do upper London elegance or go for a more rustic, Celtic magic theme.

Don’t worry. You’re not the only ones still scratching your heads over the recent “ Conscious Uncoupling” of Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow.  If Hollywood marriages age in dog years, then we shouldn’t be surprised that the Celeb elite are now coming up with a more chic way to say “We’re splitting up”.

So it comes as a welcome refreshing breath of air when someone in the limelight seems so unaffected by it and offers up realistic and of course, ultra stylish advice. Enter Lauren Conrad- teen reality star turned do-gooder with her lovely Kohl’s clothing line, book series, and very smart website appropriately named, www.laurenconrad.com where she appeals to the every-girl. And now that she is a bride-to-be, we love following her every move and getting to the bottom of her super sweet and fashionable tips for brides. Here are a few of our faves:

Celebrity Wedding Advice

Always do a trial run: Who doesn’t want to look insanely glamorous on their wedding day? But don’t forget that you should look like YOU. NO surprises, no new makeup or hair trends, just the best version of yourself with styles that accentuate and compliment your unique look. Lauren is a self proclaimed purist- always knowing what looks good on her. She even swears “you’ll never see her with short hair.” Reason being? While we are certain she can rock just about any look especially a super chic bob, she just doesn’t feel as confident with short hair and feels that it isn’t her best look. Instead, from time to time she opts for a faux bob by pinning her hair up loosely and playing with the look for a night. Another great tip for undecided brides who may want that look for the ceremony but want their signature long hair on display for the reception.

Celebrity Wedding Advice

Don’t ask your groom about things he doesn’t want to know about: For Lauren, she wanted her groom to see sketches of her dress. He refused and wanted a traditional reveal on their actual wedding day. “ I ask him, is it a good time?” And she very quickly gives him a rundown of the must-know details to get his thoughts. Flowers, centerpieces, and décor are left totally up to her ( since of course that is her forte!) and wedding music ( he is a musician) is the element he wanted to solely focus on.  Dividing and conquering and putting your own personal seal on the things that matter most is the best way to avoid fights and end up with  a wedding that is a perfect mix of you and your groom.

Tiramisu Wedding Cake.  We’ve raved about our love for wedding cakes before, and we admit it, we’ve got quite a sweet tooth.  We love to see how couples get creative with their wedding day dessert, and when we saw this pin, we were intrigued.  How come we haven’t heard of tiramisu wedding cake until now?  This cake not only looks and sounds delicious, but its also an example of how nontraditional elements can be a delightful surprise on your special day.

Messy Ponytail.  One of our favorite boards to pin to is our “Bride, Hair” board.  It might seem silly, but we never get tired of seeing all the creative styles brides come up with for their big day.  We see lots of loose waves and lots of updos, but it can often be hard to find something in between the two.  This pin is the perfect combination between the two styles, making a low ponytail slightly more formal with loose waves and haphazard pinning.  The overall look is relaxed, happy, and carefree, perfect for that oh so special day!

Wedding Day Quilt.  This next pin has to be one of our favorite wedding ideas to date.  It’s personal, intimate, and memory making, the perfect combination in wedding world.  The bride and groom requested that their guests respond to their invitation with a piece of fabric, any fabric.  The swatches were then incorporated and sewn into a beautiful and one of a kind quilt for the couple to have for the rest of their lives.  What better way to remember your wedding day than to wrap yourself in it on a daily basis?

5 Things to Avoid Doing Before Your Wedding

As your big day approaches, you want to feel and look your best. The choices you make in the days leading up to your wedding can have devastating results. For instance, right before your wedding is not the time to experiment with new beauty treatments because you may not be happy with the results. Here is a list of 5 things you should avoid doing before your wedding.

  1. Experimenting with your hair. You never know how your hair will react to a new color. If you are going to switch up your routine, try it at least a month or two before your wedding. This will give you plenty of time to fix any mistakes without damaging your hair. You also want to avoid any drastic haircuts in case you don’t like the results.
  2. Avoid alcohol. Drinking can make you look and feel puffy. It also disrupts your digestive system and contains large amounts of unnecessary calories. It is a good idea to limit your intake at least a week before your wedding, and make sure you drink plenty of water.
  3. Don’t fall for juice cleanses. Many brides try juice cleanses as a way to quickly lose extra pounds, but these fad diets can sap your energy and make you irritable. It is better to stick to a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins.
  4. New facial products and treatments. Treating yourself to a facial before the big day sounds like a great way to relax, but don’t try any new treatments right before the big day, especially strong treatments such as microdermabrasion. You never know how your skin will react. It is also not a good idea to try new lotions or other skin products. If you want to try these products, test them several months before your wedding.
  5. Too much caffeine. The week of the wedding can be hectic, so it is tempting to overdose on caffeine. Unfortunately, caffeine can wreak havoc on your looks by causing dehydration and dark circles under your eyes. Making sure you get enough sleep is a better option.

It is best to try any new looks or products well in advance so you know how your body reacts and if you like the outcome. It is also essential that you make healthy choices in the days leading up to your wedding. Getting enough sleep and making healthy food and drink choices is the best way to make sure you look and feel your best on your big day.

Braided Crown Tutorial.  We love the look of relaxed yet elegant updos, especially when paired with a magical and formal wedding down.  The juxtaposition is unique and keeps the bride’s overall look cool and relaxed.  We’ve blogged about braids before, so when we saw this DIY braided crown tutorial, we knew we had to share.  The instructions are simple and low-stress, both important qualities for the DIY bride.  So click, learn, and braid away!

Balloons + Golf Tees = Floating Balloons: When we saw this picture, we had to look twice; are these balloons floating?  Well…not really, but the effect is pretty amazing!  And the look is pretty easy to achieve!  Anchor balloon with eye hooks, tent stakes, or golf tees, and stand back to watch the magic.  This would look beautiful in so many settings, colors, and patterns; we’re in floating balloon love!

Feather Boutonnieres.  We spotted these feathered creations on a popular art blog, and to be honest, we’re not sure whether they’re darts, feather dusters, or conversation starters.  We were drawn to them, however, because we think they’d make the most rockin’ boutonnieres!  We can see them pinned against a grey suit or some funky suspenders, perfect for the groom and groomsmen who want a little spunk in their wedding day look!
