You obviously wouldn’t want to sport the same hairstyle all throughout your wedding festivities, right?

For the sangeet, you want something fun and playful with a lot of movement. But for D-day, clean hairstyles that stay out of your face are preferred — that’s why buns are the go-to options for most brides. This leaves us with one glam brief that is often lost in translation — the reception. Since this is one ceremony where the glam factor needs to be right up there, you need an equally amazing hairstyle to match the vibe. Here are some gorgeous half-up half-down hairstyles you can draw inspo from to glam up your wedding reception look.

If your goal is to look like your favourite Disney princess, this look will get you there. Voluminous, loose waves cascading down the back, the front secured in a twisted bunch and accessorised with beads and diamante — this is such a pretty hairdo!

Good old 90s crimping is back, and winter 2020 brides can’t get enough of it! A look we’ve been spotting a lot lately is the centre parted half-up half-down, but with crimped sections put in to add texture. Brides who love a good throwback moment will sure find this one worthy of a spot on their bridal mood boards.

While rope braids look like a simple idea, they do add a lot of body to your mane and are super fun to accessorise! Take your pick from all the pearly, floral and even uber-bling accessories to pair with this hair arrangement. We guarantee wedding guests will be gawking at this hair look for hours.

This high crown hair look works for two reasons — it leaves out sleek face-framing sections in the front and gives a little lift to your face. So, for brides who are hoping to stand tall next to their towering significant others, this hairdo is a keeper!

A minimal yet pretty look, if you want to give your hair a break and skip the extensions, this is a good way to do your tresses. An adorable half-bun secured with twisted strands and adorned with dainty flowers is such a beautiful way to wear your natural length for an intimate reception.
