Wedding hair flowers

On your big day wedding hair flowers are the perfect finishing touch to enhance your hairstyle. You can use fresh flowers, faux flowers or sparkling crystal flowers. You can dot them through your hair or proudly wear a floral headband or flower comb.

If you want fresh flowers speak to your florist about suitable flowers to use for wedding hair accessories as some flowers last better than others.

Hair flowers are very much in fashion. In 2011 Pippa Middleton wore a beautiful comb of real lily of the valley flowers at the royal wedding. She wore her hair half up and half down with soft curls, secured with the floral comb. The younger bridesmaids wore cute floral headdresses over their curled hair.


The vintage trend is still going to be big in 2012 with lots of brides choosing a soft color palette and pretty flowers. For a beautiful vintage romance look, have soft curls put in your hair and wear it half up and half down. Ask your florist to wire single flowers so your hair stylist can attach them randomly through your hair.


Singapore orchids are perfect for dainty single hair flowers as they last well as and come in several colors. If your wedding theme is a based on a specific era such as 40s or 50s old Hollywood glamour, opt for a real vintage style such big curls and waves. This type of style looks great with a large faux flower corsage pinned at one side of the head.

If you want to wear a cluster of wedding hair flowers, flower combs are a lovely option. Your florist will make you a tiny arrangement of flowers and then attach them to a comb which your hair stylist will add to your finished hair. Combs are also lovely with bun hair styles too; a loose messy bun or a formal bun can be enhanced with a comb.


Big frothy floral headdresses were very popular in the 80s and 90s when weddings featured lots of satin and gyposhila. Headdresses have now become more petite and delicate. But the adventurous bride may still want a large statement floral headdress.

A modern take on large headdresses is more carefree and fun with lots of colors and different flowers. These look amazing for a whimsical boho theme. Loose natural waves in the hair would be perfect for this look.

Wedding hair accessories made out of crystals or diamantes are nearly as popular as tiaras now. They are often on a head band and have one or two large crystal flowers off centre. These look stunning if you are wearing your hair down and want something a little bit special to wear; they catch the light and with look great in photos. If you have bought a crystal headband take it along to your wedding hair consultation so your stylist can advise you how to wear it.
