Ridiculously Beautiful & Romantic Bridal Updos

1. Romantic Rolls

I am starting with my personal fave. Updos with a romantic roll have a touch of Edwardian elegance, but are completely timeless. And I LOVE how they look with a crown – either floral for a more relaxed bohemian look, or glitzy for some olde world grandeur, both are utterly gorgeous!….

3. Long & Loose

But if an updo isn’t for you, don’t despair, because long and loose locks can just as easily be styled to vintage perfection for your big day. Evoke the glamour of a 1940s screen siren with some victory rolls, pin curls or a sultry peek-a-boo sweeping side parting like Veronica Lake…..
