We see many brides, and we shoot many weddings. Attention to details is everything. Seeing things visually always helps more than just trying to imagine it. So I compiled some photos that I think is stunning vintage wedding hairstyles. Not just out of a look good sense, but also out of a photographers point of view. There are many factors to keep in mind when you want to go for a vintage hairstyle. PLEASE NOTE: These are not our own photos, these are just ideas we randomly chose.

Will the hairstyle fit your wedding dress?
What would be the use of a vintage hairstyle, if you you have a more modern wedding dress? Also you need to keep your wedding venue and theme in mind. If the wedding venue has a vintage feel, then yes, your vintage hairstyle will work.
What if you are getting married in a windy area
Trust me, you don’t want to have your hairstylist fix your hair every 5 minutes through your formal photos. Vintage hairstyles are planned and very detailed, even if sprayed for hours with hairspray, you still need to keep wind in mind.
Does your makeup artist know how to do makeup with a vintage look?
The modern trends in makeup are more natural tones, but with a vintage hairstyle, you need darker types of makeup that goes with the certain look you want. Even adding eyelashes creates an amazing look with the vintage hairstyle. Personally I’m not a fan of red lips, especially at a wedding, but with the right dress, and vintage hairstyle, red lips would look amazing.
Timing is everything
A vintage wedding hairstyle will naturally take much longer than normal, so plan ahead with your hairstylist, keep enough time for your hair to be done. Also keep in mind that your bridal party’s hair should also be done in time. If your budget allows it, get an extra hairstylist for your bridal party.
The bridal party’s hair
If you are going to do a vintage hairstyle, then you need to have your bridal party also with vintage hairstyles. Especially when you are planning to take photos with the girls, it would look odd if they don’t have vintage hairstyles.
