Not knowing your hair length/cut, it is hard to make suggestions. Also, I have a round face and I find that some volume at the top and big waves/curls helps mask that rather than make it worse. Are you opposed to all all types of curls or do you just not want ringlets? And when you say no up-dos, do you mean no hair up at all, or just not entirely up?

You might look into fancy/jeweled headbands? Depends on your theme, I suppose. 

Here is a flower headband.

The thing is, there isn’t a ton of variation with completely straight, down hair styles- something like this could be pretty but I still consider that to have some wave to it

 

This looks pretty and doesn’t emphasize her round face but its not necessarily farticularly formal-

But as you can see in this one, down and straight is pretty much down and straight- but that can still look great with a veil and a formal dress!

I LOVE this updo I think I may do it for the wedding. It’s mostly straight – with the one pin curl. I have a very round face too. I think if there was a lot of height to the crown it would off set full cheeks. I usually do my hair with a bit of a poof pulled bck bang – or some height in my pony tail crown. It helps.
