It’s that time of the bridal season when, after 12 weeks of simmering anticipation, our summer brides have begun to pick up their dresses. Now all those head-to-toe finishing touches take top priority. In answer to that inevitable next question (“What should I do with my hair?”), we’ve paired hairstyles from the recent runway shows with some of our most popular dresses to create some winsome, wedding-appropriate looks.
