For those searching the Web for photos of hairstyles to wear as a guest at an upcoming wedding, it is essential to find a style that suits the occasion. Potential looks when it comes to styling your hair depend on the setting of the wedding, which generally falls under four basic categories.

Formal Styles for an Indoor Wedding

The traditional wedding is frequently held in a church or chapel setting. In many cases, these weddings include the most formal of any wedding dress code. An elegant updo is usually entirely appropriate for a formal indoor wedding. Take cues from the style of the invitation and the time of day. An evening candlelit ceremony is much more likely to be more sophisticated than an afternoon chapel wedding.

Informal Styles for an Indoor Wedding

For a less formal indoor ceremony that will be held in a banquet hall or similar venue, consider something simple and refined. Short hairstyles with a stylish headband or longer wispy curls are both great looks for a less formal wedding. Shoot to fall somewhere in the middle ground between formal and casual.

Formal Styles for an Outdoor Wedding

Weddings are often held outdoors with breathtaking backdrops and beautiful scenery. More formal outdoor ceremonies frequently take place in picturesque flower gardens in temperate weather. Almost any type of hairstyle is suitable for this type of setting, but an updo might keep you cooler. Allow a few tendrils to hang loose and blow in the breeze. You might also consider pulling just half of your hair back.

Informal Styles for an Outdoor Wedding

An informal outdoor wedding gives you the most license to style your hair how you please. A beach or cruise wedding offers a fun open-air environment that often reflects the laid-back attitude of the bride and groom. At an informal ceremony, have some fun with your hairstyle and add a flower or a fancy ribbon to wave in the wind.
