Ideas & Advice
Casual, messy updos don't just impart an effortlessly romantic feel, they're super chic too - just look to Meghan Markle's wedding (and everyday) hairstyle of choice. While the now Duchess of Sussex wore it with a tiara (but of course), here are other ways you can luxe up the laid-back hairstyle.
Of course, there's no other way to really emulate the Duchess of Sussex's style than with a tiara. Meghan Markle donned a royal heirloom belonging to Queen Mary, which has a more conventional symmetrical shape but if you're looking to give your big day royalty-inspired a modern twist, this asymmetrical floral piece has our nod of approval.

These versatile accents pair well with both grand ballgowns or light, airy dresses. Double the glamour with a double-strand style.

Turn up the glamour with acrylic or metallic blooms, feathers or crystals for your nuptials.

These versatile and delicate hair accessories can be worn like a hair band, or wrapped around your bun like a wreath for a decidedly boho feel - perfect for a garden or seaside wedding.

Plus, they draw attention to your face and long dangly ones can help elongate your face and make it slimmer. Just be sure they don't clash with a busy neckline.

Instead, she jazzed up her boho Ralph & Russo lace dress with a glittering look-at-me necklace as well as earrings from Lorraine Schawartz.
