Style Guide: Wedding Hairstyles by Season

Planning a wedding requires a lot of research. While you’re scouring the Internet for venues, fun bands, and an amazing florist, most are also thinking about your wedding day look. Whether you’re on Pinterest, Instagram, or flipping through the pages of a magazine, finding inspiration for your hair and makeup is essential. After all, you want a hairstyle that will make you feel beautiful on your big day. Whether you’re getting married this summer or next winter, get inspired with these wedding hairstyles by season.

Summer Wedding Hairstyles

Brides planning a summer wedding will want a hairstyle that’s fashion-forward but comfortable enough to sport all day long. Where you plan to have your wedding is an excellent way to determine your hairstyle for the day. For instance, if you have an outdoor summer wedding, an updo is an excellent choice. This style will help keep you cool and prevent your hair from sticking to your face and ruining your photos. A wedding venue in Bucks County sees many updos in the summer months because they’re easy to style for a special occasion but they can also lend themselves to a more casual look.

If you’re a summer bride, consider a voluminous updo inspired by royalty. Waterfall braids are also extremely popular with summer brides, especially if you are going for a more boho-inspired look. Consider having your hairstylist work these cascading braids into an updo to stay on-trend and comfortable.


Autumn Wedding Hairstyles

Once again, the location of your wedding will help influence how you have your hair done on the big day. If you’re planning a fall wedding indoors or outdoors, you have some wiggle room in terms of the style. Brides can wear their hair up or down at a fall wedding — it’s truly all about preference.

Some trending wedding hairstyles for autumn include an all-braided updo. This look is perfect for the bohemian bride. Autumn weddings are the perfect time for brides to accessorise their hairstyles with greenery, flowers, and gemstones. Whether you sport an updo or a blown-out hairstyle, these accessories play well with various fall wedding themes. 


Winter Wedding Hairstyles

Nearly all winter weddings are indoors — unless you’re planning a destination wedding somewhere warm! If that’s the case, pay close attention to the styles recommended in our spring and summer sections. But if you’re planning a winter wedding in a colder climate, you can definitely opt for a stylish blowout.

Considering the lack of humidity in the cold, brides can achieve almost any kind of down-do for their winter wedding. The options are virtually endless for winter brides, from loose curls to a half-up-half-down look to a stunning side sweep. Another popular style is bombshell waves, similar to an old Hollywood starlet, with one side pinned back by a blinged-out hair clip. You’re sure to feel glamorous and camera-ready if you choose this style.


Spring Wedding Hairstyles

As with all of the other seasons, brides should consider the weather typical in the location they’re getting married. It’s one of the most critical factors in determining how to best style your hair! Depending on where you live, spring is notorious for rain showers. If you’re prone to frizziness, consider a tight, sleek bun. Whether that bun is low or high is all up to the bride.

Additionally, spring weddings are all about capturing the romance of the season. As such, looks involving flower crowns and luscious curls work really well.


All Season Wedding Hairstyles

When it comes to your big day, you want to feel like the best version of yourself. If you typically wear your hair half-up-half-down, play with hair accessories to elevate your everyday look (see 24 Wedding Earrings to Elevate Your Look). For the bride looking for a no-fuss hairstyle on your big day, updos are a no-brainer. You also won’t have to worry too much about the weather if your hair is all pulled up. At the end of the day, you want to go with a comfortable hairstyle that makes you feel like you!
