7 Ways to Wear Fresh Flowers In Your Wedding Day Hair

Fresh flowers aren’t just for your bouquet and centerpieces. Consider adding them to your wedding day hairstyle. Get a whimsical look with a fresh flower crown or go classic with a few simple white flowers tucked into an updo. One tip for the taking: Do a little homework before you decide on what flowers to use. You may love ranunculus but they’ll wilt in the matter of an hour. So choose a heartier flower — amaryllis, succulents and orchids are all durable options. Here, a few of our favorite brides who pulled it off!

Wrapped Around A Bun

Start with a bun — high or low — then ask your stylist to pin flowers all the way around the base of the bun. Small filler flowers like bouvardia, stephanotis or waxflowers create a soft, romantic look, while medium-sized blooms in bright colors make the style whimsical.

In a Lush Flower Crown

Floral crowns are completely customizable: You can choose big or small flowers in several colors, one hue or even just greenery. Try a lush wreath atop loose waves or a low, messy bun for a boho-chic vibe.

On The Side Of A Classic Updo

Accessorize any type of bridal updo with flowers pinned on the side. The beauty in this style is its versatility: just about any type of flower works, you can choose any color, and there’s no limit on how many or how few flowers you can use.

A Rustic Headband of Flowers

A headband made of small flowers — like lilac and baby’s breath — gives you a bohemian look without the weight of a lavish flower crown. Plus, you can wear this floral accessory with your hair down.

Mixed In With A Low, Messy Hairstyle

Lacing small flowers into a mess of curls at the nape of your neck gives you a romantic, fresh look. This style is for brides who love the look of flowers in their hair but aren’t fond of the overgrown-garden look.

Opposite Loose, Sideswept Curls

One oversized flower in a bright color — think a bold hibiscus, amaryllis or gladiolus — adds drama and a pop of color to a loose, down hairstyle.

Pinned Above Your Updo

A few flowers positioned above your updo look as practical as they do pretty. This look works for brides who also want to wear a veil — just secure the veil right below the flowers.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
