Wedding Flowers in Your Hair

Given the trend towards the natural, the organic and the fresh and green it is no surprise that more people than ever is opting to get married wearing fresh blooms rather than silk or polyester one.  The fake look is out and all things alive and fragrant are in.  If you are going to get married wearing fresh flowers rather than fake ones is also considered to be good like.  Another plus is that the flowers add a nice natural fragrance to the smell of your hair.


In Hawaii or Asia it is more common to wear one or more large colored blooms but in Western weddings the flowers worn in the bride’s lock tend to be smaller. They also always tend to be pastel colored or white if you are thinking in traditional terms. Of course nowadays modern brides wear every shade and variety of flower in their hair from bizarre green orchids to sophisticated burgundy calla lilies to delicate miniature roses.


However if you want to be standard about it then the flowers usually chosen are small gardenias, roses, orchids and lilies.  Daisies are often worn in the hair as well but this is more of a contemporary touch that was actually popularized by Drew Barrymore.


In England wearing wildflowers in the hair has been popular for a very long time. In fact a classic look is the circlet made with real blossoms. If it is winter go for heavier looking flowers in velvety reds. Start thinking of Chrysanthemums and Roses.  Miniature purple or blue orchids of the miniature English wildflower varieties work well too.


In more summery months herbs can be twisted with buttercups, daisies and other blossoms to make a beautiful crown for the head.  You do not have to wear the flowers as a wreathe or a tiara. Flowers look lovely twined right into the locks of your hair, especially if the hair is braided.


Another very nice touch is to have your groom match the flower in his suit buttonhole to the color of the bloom in your hair.


It is also important to consider the color of your hair before you adorn it with wedding flowers. Violet and red flowers go well with blonde hair and crimsons and white flowers go wonderfully with brunettes.  For a flash of real interest try wearing a big orange flower in your hair if you happen to be a redhead!
