Pony tail brides are so frickin’ cool.

The classic pony tail might be seen as an informal style, more suited to a workout than a wedding, but pair it with a beautiful white dress, and a wedding day glow, and it becomes a chic hairstyle, for an effortlessly gorgeous bride.

Whether you take it back to school with a voluminous high pony or a topsy tail (remember them!), or keep it grown up and glamorous with some fab waves or a wrap around knot effect, there are so many ways to dress up the average pony for your wedding day.
