Bridal Ponytails Are an Easy Option For the Unfussy Bride

Let’s talk about bridal ponytails. I don’t mean some really uppity up-do masquerading as a bridal ponytail, but rather sleek and simple bridal ponytails that are totally accessible to the DIY bride with a little pre-wedding practice. And before you reject this easy-peasy wedding day hairstyle, remember that there’s nothing that says a bride has to have hair teased into the stratosphere.

Isn’t that a sweet look? Admittedly, it’s unfussy and less-than-formal, but some brides are like that. And a simpler hairstyle can really showcase an elaborate wedding gown and/or bridal jewelry. Then again, there’s nothing wrong with pairing a sweet and simple wedding dress with a pony! Want to see more? There are six awesome examples of bridal ponytails under the cut!

    I love the examples you’ve posted! I’m not a fan of the overdone hairstyles. To me overdone = matronly.

    I realized one huuuge advantage to wearing a simple ponytail: The bride will look like herself. By that I mean: I’ve been to a wedding where the bride had her hair styled in a fashion she had never worn before or since, and with babies breath woven into it, and some other thing on her head. Honestly, it was hard to recognize her. Other brides–same basic thing. They’ve never had their hair like that before or since.

    On the other hand, who hasn’t seen a girl with her hair in a ponytail at least once?
