If you decide to wear your hair up on your wedding day, you'll quickly realize that the possibilities are truly endless! From braided buns to chignons to pinned curls, updos can get very creative – and, you can personalize your look even further by adding a flower or jeweled headpiece. A looser style complements a laid-back, more informal wedding, while a sleek style works beautifully for a formal affair. Whether you normally wear your hair up or down, a perfectly styled updo can help you truly feel like a bride on your wedding day.

More practically, an updo allows you to easily keep your hair off of your face as you celebrate and dance the night away! Work with your hairstylist to determine the best style for you, and be sure to do a practice run before the big day. See how 10 real brides wore their hair at their weddings in the slideshow above!
