When you spend months – perhaps even years – organizing your nuptials, sometimes you just want something easy to check off the list. Whether you’re looking into a simple "mini-moon" or a smaller registry, finding elements of your wedding that can be simplified is akin to finding gold. If you’ve hired a professional planner, they’ll be looking for ways to make the experience as painless and fun as possible, but there are always little things that you can look into on your own, especially when it comes to the very personal details of your special day.
One aspect you can decomplicate is that of the hairstyles for the bridal party. Whether all of your gals are getting the same coiffure done or you’ve given them free reign and they’ve come to you for suggestions, it isn’t the time to overthink. Keeping the ‘dos of your ‘maids – as well as your own hairstyle – on the simple side will cut down the getting-ready timeline and allow for more leeway on the morning of the wedding. Plus, your girls won’t have to sit in the chair for long, and you’ll have more time for fun pictures and excited chatting.
