There’s this dichotomy that comes with being a bridesmaid. On one hand, there’s the stress of planning the bachelorette party and finding the right wedding gift — not to mention figuring out how the heck you’re going to pay for everything. But, on the other hand, there’s the joy you feel when you’re actually standing at the altar — feeling beautiful in your one-shoulder dress and perfectly-tousled, half-up hairstyle.
When you’re tearing up as your best friend, sister, or soon-to-be sister-in-law walks down the aisle, it’s easy to forget all the hardships of the prep. And to help remove one more thing from your very long pre-wedding to-do list, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to bridesmaid hairstyles. Whether you’re the Type-A maid of honor or the begrudging bridesmaid who’d rather skip to the reception, scroll through for styles that are sure to please everyone in the bridal party — even the bride.
