Why, hello there! Long time, no see! I took an extended blogging break while traveling out to California for a best friend’s wedding, and let me tell you, I had an absolute blast. Wedding pictures and trip recaps are soon to come, but today, I’m kicking things off with a look at the Elsa-inspired side braid I rocked as a bridesmaid.
Since the weather on California’s Central Coast can be windy and damp, I knew I wanted something pulled back, yet different from the traditional updo, for my bestie’s beachfront soiree. Being a major fan of Frozen, I fell head over heels in love with this dramatic side braid the minute I saw it on Pinterest. But would my stylist be able to recreate it?
As it turned out, she had a pretty hard time getting it right, having to start over several times and not truly mimicking the look in the photo. Overall, though, I was still happy with the end result, which looked very Elsa-esque when paired with my blue-green dress that featured a series of pretty back ruffles.
What do you think of this style? Would you wear a braid at a wedding? Check out some other unique looks, including braided updos, in my recent Brit + Co post showcasing 20 Stunning Updos to Rock at Every Summer Wedding.
