Alfresco summer weddings are the loveliest. But they’re also at the mercy of heat, humidity, wind and rain. We say, rather than worrying about a maintaining a perfectly sculpted and sleek style, why not opt for a romantic ’do that's carefree, a little bohemian and perhaps even welcomes a stray hair or two? Here, 20 gorgeous ideas we're stealing from real brides.
