Wedding Hairstyles with Flowers

What can be more romantic than flowers in a bride's hair? You do not necessarily need sparkles or any complicated hairdos as the flowers itself will make you look bridal and beautiful looking. The tradition of decorating your hair with flowers dates back to the 1800s. In the 60s, girls wore flowers in their hair to portray their connection to nature and symbolize love, innocence, and divine beauty. Nawadays especially for bridesmades and flower girls is common to wear flowers on the wedding day. 

 

You can use both natural living flowers or a "fake ones". Flowers could be perfect accessory especially for those brides which decide no to wear a wedding veil on their wedding or want to take the veil off after wedding ceremony is over.

There are numerous possibilities of different kind of flowers with different shapes and colours. So it won't be hard to achieve unique bridal look you want. Of course the fake flowers are most easy to wear. They will stand well at any type of weather, won't fade out and can be worn after the wedding. But if you choose to have real flowers for your wedding updo i would suggest to talk with your florist and ask for those flowers which will stay the longest looking fresh and beautiful. Long lasting and good looking flowers for example are orchid , plumeria, gardenia, peonies, stephanotis, lily, baby's breath, daisy, freesia, wax flower and of course can't forget about roses.  I would suggest you to be very careful especially with lilys as they can have a very strong odour.

How to wear flowers on your wedding day? You can wear your hair bouth up and down with flowers of any choice of yours. In general, use larger blossoms with simple styles, smaller ones for more intricate looks. I would say that very small flowers will look great especially in a big amounts while big flowers are better to wear more carefully, you do not want your flowers to "eat you alive " :) 

How to keep flowers lookig fresh? Store the flowers for your hair in a refrigerator or cooler until you are ready to use them. Mist your hairstyle with hair spray for the final time before attaching the flowers, as the alcohol and polymers in hair sprays can damage delicate blossoms. To wear a large bloom, like the cymbidium orchid, cut stem to one inch; pierce it with a U-shape hairpin, and insert the pin into the thickest part of the hairstyle. Small individual blossoms, such as stephanotis, can be attached with a small beaded hairpin, pierced through the flower's center and stuck into the hair.

 Here are some examples of a different hairstyles with natural and fake flowers. Hope you will enjoy :)
  

 









































 





























This one isn't actually a bridal hairstyle as such, but i think it gives nice idea how to decorate your hair for the wedding day. You don't actually need to have much of a hairdo if your hair looks healthy and beautiful by itself. Just decorate it with little flowers to get the soft bridal look.
