Flowers aren’t just for your wedding day bouquet – they also make great wedding day hair accessories. Whimsical, delicate or even bold and bright, there are lots of different ways to wear flowers in your hair, so if you’re looking for some floral inspiration, take a look at these blooming lovely ideas…
be inspired by your bouquet
Our Real Life bride Niamh matched her fresh flower crown to her bouquet, making maximum impact without being to OTT.
Choose dried flowers
A sustainable and long-lasting alternative to fresh florals is to choose a ready-made floral accessory, like this one from Lisa Angel. The dried flowers are delicate and will work well on a half-up, half-down look.
Pick your favourite blooms
Smaller blooms with lots of texture lend themselves more to a floral hairstyle, however, that shouldn’t stop you from trying to incorporate your favourite flowers into your big day blooms. Real life bride Allana chose a crown that was heavy on the roses, which lends her look a lovely laidback boho vibe.
Add some sparkle
If you can’t choose between sparkles and florals, why not try both? Using dried and painted flowers alongside rhinestones, pearls and crystals, this headband will add a touch of glam to your big day look. It can also be used on the back of the hair to secure your veil.
Short hair looks blooming good
Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you can’t wear flowers in it! Amy, one of our real life brides, shows just how stylish a flower crown can look with a pixie do.
Sweet and simple
Don’t want anything over the top? You can elevate a simple ponytail by tucking a couple of small blooms into it. Alternatively, choose one of these dried flower pins from Lisa Angel and tuck behind the ear for a cute, summery vibe.
Small is beautiful
Smaller blooms, like gypsophila or heather, make for a really delicate flower crown, as seen on our gorgeous real life bride Neasa. It was the perfect match for her woodland wedding.
Choose flowers that have some symbolism for you to truly make your hair decoration special. These dried flower pin set from Hidden Botanics features a Scottish thistle, perfect if you’re getting wed in Scotland or have Scottish heritage.
Some other flowers with hidden meanings you might like to consider include:
- Pink Camellia - Longing for you
