Crown yourself in FloralPosted by Holly Anderson on June 7 2017.
Flowers have been a statement of many a wedding throughout the years. From adorning beautiful rooms of old English castles, to being thrown to single friends as a token of luck, flowers are a beautiful mainstay of any British wedding day. However, with the evolution of weddings from the traditional church and function room affairs of the past, couples are constantly searching for new and different ways to put their own stamp on their big day and the brides’ hair is no exception!
From boho flower crowns, to the romantic single blossom, here are some of the prettiest floral styles to compliment your big day!
The Tousled Up Do
Flowers are a beautiful addition to any up do! These stunning, understated up dos are set offbeautifully by the neutral tones of the flowers and are perfect for idyllic, outdoor summer weddings. Clusters of small flowers add an elegance to the style and don’t overshadow the hair styling itself. Up dos also provide an excellent foundation for adding multiple flowers as they are often very secure, add a few small dainty flowers or completely fill your hair with beautiful flowers and leaves for a more exotic look.
The Floral Crown
The floral was a great statement for the bridesmaid in the 60’s and 70’s, but has been completely reinvented to provide a simple and elegant accessory for any bride or bridesmaid to wear on the big day. These crowns are the perfect statement for any bohobride on her big day and work fabulously in outdoor, rustic venues. Keep it simple with a white daisy chain style crown, or go avant-garde with a big and bold rainbow style crown. Flower crowns are not just for the bride though! They work beautifully on bridesmaids of all ages and can be a great way of identifying the bridal party.
Flower crowns are incredibly easy to make and can be a great way of getting together with your bridal party before the big day.

The Beautiful Braid
This season braids are the rage, especially for brides looking for a slightly bolder, moreglamorous look. Fishtail braids or French plaits never fail to look beautiful woven with small wild flowers, and roses add a stunning embellishment to big bold braids on longer hair.
The braided halo is a beautiful and different way to incorporate flowers into an understated hairstyle. Baby breath and roses are used to adorn this beautiful braided halo, and short face framing layers help to give a beautiful tousled look. A classic, elegant look, perfect for any big day.
The Single Flower
Inspired by the flamenco dancers of Andalusia the single flower is a bold statement for any bride. Traditionally the single bloom looks beautiful accompanying a sleek chignon or a side do, however they also look beautifully elegant accompanying relaxed waves or or a simple down do. The single bloom is a perfect opportunity to add a bold pop of colour for brides who want to stray away from the traditions of a white wedding and fluffy peonies are a perfect flower to complete this look.
Flowers are an absolutely beautiful hair accessory any wedding. Remember to consider what kind of dress you will be wearing. consider whether you want to adorn yourself in beautiful fresh flowers, or invest in a long term fabric option. Consider your venue and the colours that will compliment your surroundings. But most of all choose something that you love! Who cares if it defies wedding tradition!
