For Better or Worse: The Best Updo for Backless Wedding Dresses

Let’s face it – your wedding day is probably one of the biggest days of your life. And your wedding dress is likely the most beautiful dress you will ever wear. For such a momentous day, your hair will play an integral role in either complimenting or competing with your dress. Obviously, you would like your updo to compliment your overall look, so today we are going to discuss one of the most popular dress styles and its most favourable updos.

The backless wedding dress.

The backless wedding dress is a stunning style that is very popular currently. The point of a backless wedding dress is to show off your back. Therefore, an updo or side updo are the best options for this style of dress. If you choose to wear your hair down, you would be de-emphasizing the beauty of the plunging back of the dress. However, if you’re not such a fan of the more contrived and perfected looking updo, you can easily pull your hair softly to one side and incorporate a braid or loosely falling strands.

The deep back of this dress allows for emphasis to be put on a stunning updo.
