If you were to take a sneak-peek into the life of a bride-to-be, all you’d see would be weeks and months of planning for the big day – from picking the theme for the décor to deciding the menu for the wedding day and that exquisite lehenga that she’d like to get married in. Phew, that right there is a whole lot of planning and chaos brewing! Right until a few days before the wedding, a bride is constantly busy and on her feet. Among everything else, one of the biggest things a bride plans meticulously is her bridal look – from her lehenga to the kind of makeup she wants and the hairstyle she’d want, along with the kind of nails she’d like to get done. After all, a bride wants to look the most gorgeous on her special day; so of course, she needs to plan it well! Just like lehengas are the most popular outfit choice, buns are the most popular hairstyle choice. Every now and then, some brides may break out of it and go for an open hairstyle, but most brides like sticking to a bun because it keeps the strays away, so they can look pretty without having to worry about constantly keeping their hair in place. Besides, bridal buns can look as gorgeous as you would like them to be! In fact, we are in awe of some of the beautiful bridal buns we have spotted on stunning brides.

Dos And Don’ts for Your Wedding Hair
Have a hair trial
This is the most important ‘do’ that you must remember! If you’ve been browsing Pinterest for your dream bun hairstyle for a wedding, then getting a trial appointment in order to see how it actually looks is crucial before you decide whether to go ahead. After all, you don’t want to freak out on your wedding day when the hairstyle you chose does not suit you as well as you’d thought.
Don’t use synthetic hair extensions
If you’d like to use extensions, make sure you go for natural ones instead of synthetic ones. Sure, synthetic ones are cheaper than natural ones, but they can be highly flammable if not handled with care. We are sure that is a risk you wouldn’t want to take.
Decide your dress first
Haven’t said yes to the dress and already finalised the hairstyle? That’s a big no, and we’d suggest you not do this at all. Only when your outfit is decided can you figure out whether the hairstyle you like compliments it or not. So pick your dress first and then determine your hairstyle.
Prioritise comfort over style
Yes, there may be several stylish hairstyle options that you can consider. However, keep in mind that you are already going to be wearing heavy clothes and jewellery on your wedding day. Amidst all the chaos that a wedding is, the last thing you’d want is to worry about your hair falling out of place. That is why we recommend choosing a stylish yet comfortable bun hairstyle for the wedding.
