Naturally, I am a big supporter of bridesmaids having a totally different look than the bride. As far as hairstyles go, the last thing you want is a bridesmaid have the same or more elegant style or updo than you on your big day!
Every bride is different as to how they want their bridesmaids to look. Some prefer all of their bridesmaids to look the same. Some, want them all to show off their own unique style and personality. Some, no preference at all, but there’s always the bridesmaids that can’t (or won’t!) make up their minds about what they want (making it too much about them and not YOU!).
So, a good compromise is this, pick something that you don’t have incorporated in your style (whether that be a braid, bun, up or down, however). Incorporate it someway in their look, then let them put their own spin on it. Now they are all uniformed and you look like the star of the show, as you should be.
Remember, it’s your day. If you don’t take control it could get out of control.
