1. Messy Braided Updos

There's something so romantic about braids. And there's more than one way to wear a braid, like we saw at the Elizabeth Fillmore runway show where a lot of the models wore ethereal braided crowns and Marchesa's show with lots of pretty, messy braided updos.

Tip for the Taking: To make the style last throughout your ceremony and reception, use a mousse on dry hair before braiding.
