All throughout such a special day, a bride's hair-do is one of the starring roles in the wedding festivities. Her hairstyle should complement her gown and not compete with it, but it is important that it is also dictated by the formality and style of the dress. It is also important to find the best way to attach a headpiece (if one is being worn). Being that most brides don't have the luxury of their hair being styled twice, the hairstyle must work both with and without the headdress. I believe it is important not to go too overdone with the hairstyle (but at the same time you want it to be special) because looking like someone else might not be what you want, years from now, when you look back at the pictures from that day.
