I’m embarrassed to admit I know this, but maybe something like this Blake Lively ‘Gossip Girl’ look?

@jbbs1222:  I truly love this harstyle, even the blake lively picture. 

 

Are you trying to do an acient grecian look? Or a traditional grecian wedding theme to your dress? Your dress isn’t over “grecian”, so you may need to try the more ancient hairstyles to have people recognize that it is grecian. The Blake Lively hair style is a good modern example of it.

To incorpoarte a grecian element, try finding head bands of olive branch or laurel wreath design. Braids are also a typical grecian element to hair.

In more “modern” wedding traditions, the couple wear “stefanas” for the actual ceremony (taken off after), which are usually white flower head pieces, but can be any head piece design really. I am Greek and do not plan to do a traditional Greek ceremony with stefanas, but will be wearing a flower head piece in honour of my greek heritage. You can consider this as well.

Here are examples of hairstyles that are fitting of the “grecian” style, and I do apologize for the picture-heavy reply. I have so many pictures saved up of this style, as I plan to do it also. I also wanted to give you different styles, so you can better find a hairstyle that suits you and what you want.

@jbbs1222:  Ah alright. Yeah, a stefana is a flower hair wreath. I would say Blake Lively’s hair is absolutely lovely. If you do her hair style, but with braids (either with your natural hair or hair extensions), you can definitely incorporate your hair piece easily! 😀

Having both hair straps and your hair pin, would in my opinion, clash. You want the pretty hair piece to stand out. That’s why I suggest doing a similar hairstyle, but with braids.
