Weddings have been around at least as long as humans have been able to write about them, and in almost every culture, brides are the focus of their own traditions and rituals. But through history, the way brides have prepared and beautified themselves has changed drastically. Some traditions have survived for thousands of years and still make up a big part of our ceremonies, while others now seem truly bizarre (just check out the story on ancient Sparta). From mehendi to boqtas, see how being a beautiful bride has changed over the last three millenia.

Finding the right hairstyle for your wedding day is a big deal, so don't be ashamed or embarrassed to play with different looks. I sat through five different trials trying everything from long, wavy extensions to updos. Heck, even celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves said that, "once Carmen Electra selected her wedding dress, I created 13 different hairstyles on her and took a Polaroid of each one so she could select the one which was perfect for her."
This is your day to shine - you should look fabulous! And a great suggestion, Ken. It's important to take a Polaroid so that your stylist knows exactly how to recreate the look. I know it all feels kinda vain, but once you find something you love, you'll be so happy to have one less detail to worry about on your wedding day!
Oh and did I mention that Ken Paves also styled wedding hair for Jessica Simpson and Christina Applegate as well as J.Lo's hair for her wedding scenes in "Monster In Law" and "The Wedding Planner?" I wonder if he'll do Eva Longoria's too, I know she goes to him regularly. To see four popular wedding hairstyles to consider, read more
