Chances are the hairstyle you go with will be a combination of any of these styles. I highly recommend going wih a pro for your wedding day and setting up a hair and make up trial before hand. But get creative and try out a bunch of different looks, by yourself or with a friend. Isn't that what bridesmaids are for? And choose a hairstyle that works well not only for the style of your wedding but for the type of hair you have. This way you are guaranteed a hairstyle that suits you and will last.
