A braid is romantic, sweet, lovely and feminine all rolled into one, making it a wildly irreplaceable hair feature. We love the originality a braid can add to your look on your wedding day. From a single braid to a fishtail look a braid embodies so many different features making it dynamic and suitable for a chic, bohemian, or a more casual bride. Too, this lively hairstyle is also suitable for your flower girl and bridesmaids – The choices are endless. Enjoy the inspiration!
