And as the following photos demonstrate, they're just as lovely for boho, rustic, vintage, and modern weddings as they are for classic ones. From high to low, perfectly coiled to messy, and everything in between, your mane options are endless. Click through to find wedding updos that look gorgeous from every angle.
