What’s a wedding if not romantic? From your vows to that newlywed kiss to the first dance, rest assured that there’ll be no shortage of romantic moments on your big day. But why stop there? Brides often incorporate romantic elements into everything from the wedding decor to their bridal gowns and, yes, even their lovely locks. And if you consider yourself amongst these passionate brides, you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up a collection of our favorite romantic wedding hairstyles just for you. So to ‘do which will you say “I do?”

Whether it’s tousled, touch-me waves, a swoon-worthy updo, or dainty floral embellishments, with a ton of ways to incorporate some romantic elements into a wedding hairstyle, there’s a ‘do out there for every personal style, wedding theme, and gorgeous gown. Want to show off your shoulders? Rock a romantic hairstyle with your strapless wedding dress by opting for an undone updo with face-framing tendrils. Throwing a boho bash? Tuck bits of floral and foliage into your lush curls for some seriously romantic bridal hair.

While there aren’t necessarily any hard-and-fast romance rules (don’t you know it), there are a couple of things to keep in mind while styling your tresses. For an undeniably romantic hairstyle, brides should aim to keep things soft and relaxed (think loose curls and texturized, wispy updos) and feel free to accessorize with delicate bits of sparkle or ethereal blooms.
