If you want to add a bit of floral to your hair but don’t want to commit to a lot of flowers, then go dainty with a sprig of baby’s breath pinned to the side of your hair, which works if you’re wearing it down or up. You can also easily fasten baby’s breath to a topknot or bun.

12. Flower Power

Wearing your hair down? Dot pretty flowers throughout your wavy hair like a true flower girl.

13. Use it in Your Half-Up

A half-up hairstyle is a common choice for a wedding bridal look. Add some texture and earthiness with a few of your favorite flowers, securing it at the nape of your neck. From roses to daisies or wildflowers, any flower will look perfect.

14. Wear it at the Back

A floral crown doesn’t have to be front and center. If you’re wearing your hair down or in a half-updo, you can fasten a wreath of your favorite florals behind your head, just above the nape of the neck. It’s subtly romantic, and all sorts of gorgeous.

15. The Classic Floral Crown

A flower crown can be subtle with delicate wildflowers, or bold with some tropical blooms. It can take on whatever look you want, and the best part is you’ll look amazing no matter what you choose.

How to Make the Most of Your Floral Choices

As the list above shows, there are a number of ways to wear beautiful blooms in your hair as a bride. What’s important to remember is balance. You not only want to pick the best shade and style of floral that will perfectly work with your wedding motif, but also what will work best in your hair. For example, a large orchid might overwhelm a simple chignon. Also, be sure that you’re taking into consideration wilting. Are you getting married in the heat? Do your flowers require watering or spritzing to keep them looking fresh? Ultimately, your florist will know which flowers will work best with the weather and what look you’re going for. When in doubt, ask!
