Flowers have different meanings, and that’s what makes them infinitely beautiful. Maybe your wedding is inspired by the springtime, or you just want to adorn your garments with the delicacy of blooms.

Feminine and elegant. Braids provide your look with a fresh yet chic style that you can boost by adding in some delicate flowers.

5. Lush Garden Crown

When it comes to flower crowns – the bigger the better! Try a large, lush crown to really step-up the romance and that perfectly coordinates with your bridal bouquet.

6. Small Flower Accent

Minimalistic, yet still romantic. Wearing your hair half-up? Small flowery details will add the perfect amount of femininity to your look!

7. Asymmetrical Floral Diadem

A very versatile accessory that accommodates to almost any hairstyle is a diadem. If you’re wearing a high bun or just want to wear your hair down, then you should think of wearing an asymmetrical headpiece to off-set the look.

8. Hair Comb Details

Gerberas, lilies or a few lush dahlias. A small flower comb will add a touch of freshness and simplicity to your wedding-day look.

9. Chic Flower Crown

10. A Fresh Single Flower

Some flowers present their own beauty by themselves, like Magnolias, Lotus, Petunias, Dahlias, etc. Their amazing singularity can be a part of your outfit if you bring them with you not only in your bouquet, but in your outfit and hair.

11. Fresh & Feminine

A classic and chic combination: baby breath’s and roses are a soft touch for your big day. The magic upon this combination is that it can be combined with pastel tones giving your look a vintage, elegant and romantic style.

DIY or Buy?

Now that you’ve decided to add a touch of floral details into your wedding day hairstyle, it’s time to decide whether you’d rather invest the time or the money. Should you have your accessories done by a florist or do it by yourself?

Benefits of DIY:

  • It’s cheaper - You can go to a local farmer’s market, buy wholesale online, or even buy fake blooms from a craft store.
  • You know exactly what you’re getting – often you talk to a florist about your vision, but don’t see the result until the day of the wedding
  • Turn it into an event! - Grab your bridesmaids and make a fun day out of it. Get some wine, put on some music, and spend the afternoon making all of the headpieces.

Learn how to create your own floral headpiece here with this easy to follow DIY.

Benefits of a Florist:

  • They’re professionals – they’ve probably made something similar dozens of times so they know what they’re doing
  • Convenience – you may be paying more, but you’re also paying for the convenience of not having to do any of the work

Styling Floral Headpieces for Each Season

No matter if it’s winter or spring, summer or fall, flowers are always in! Here are some seasonal ideas to get the inspiration flowing!

Fall Weddings: This is the perfect time to incorporate some autumn colors such as deep oranges, bordeaux reds, eggplant purples, etc. Adding any one of your favorite fall hues into a comb or crown, along with deep green leaves to add an outdoorsy feel, is bound to be beautiful. If brighter colors will clash with your fall look, this is the perfect season to add more neutral and earthy tones into your attire. 

Winter Weddings: Some of my personal favorites for this time of year are deeper tones of reds, blues, and greens. If you're from an area that gets snow in the winter time, just about any shade of flowers will contrast beautifully against the white backgroun. Combs or crowns with a lot of green leaves and a few deeper colored flowers would be a stunning option for your big day!  

Spring Weddings:  Soft pastel bridesmaid dresses are very popular this time of year and are great for mixing and matching all different types of colors and flowers. If you like more of a subtle look, my opinion is to have white and/or ivory flowers by themselves or add in a few of the colors that will go best with your theme. 

Summer Weddings: For summer weddings, using all sorts of different colored flowers is a fun way to incorporate the season into your wedding. If heat is a concern of yours, going with faux flowers may be a better choice to have them looking fresh and stay sturdy all day. Going with this option will also allow you to make these pieces well in advance and so you can ensure that you make the perfect one for your wedding day.
