Are you a plus-size bride looking for some wedding hairstyle inspiration? You’ve come to the right place. A local hairstylist should be able to offer some fantastic suggestions, but browsing online is always a great idea too!

Seeing how other plus-size brides style their hair can give you ideas for your big day. So, we’ve curated a list of 18 beautiful wedding hairstyles for curvy brides.

Beautiful Wedding Hairstyles for Plus Size Brides

Simply choose the one you like the best, share it with your stylist, and always do a hair trial. And don’t be afraid to try something new. We know that many plus-size ladies dislike wearing their hair up because it makes them feel a little self-conscious. However, having your hair up can slim your face down and elongate your neck.

Try wearing a shirt with a comparable neckline to your wedding dress when you go for your hair trial. It’ll give you a good idea of how the hairstyle will look with your dress and on your big day.

In the meantime, here are some gorgeous plus-size bride wedding hairstyles that will look amazing!
