From bouquets and boutonnieres to centerpieces and backdrops, weddings are filled with flowers. You can even make your favorite blossoms part of your bridal beauty look by incorporating them into your hairstyle. Using fresh flowers offers a unique seasonal alternative to beaded and jeweled accessories. The following tips will help you get started.
Start Planning Early
Discuss your ideas with both the hairstylist and florist ahead of time, so you know which flowers to buy and how many you need. When planning your look, remember that simple updos provide a beautiful foundation for a single large bloom, while smaller flowers can be used to accent more intricate styles.
Choose a Flattering Flower
Since your florist is familiar with the wedding’s color scheme and aesthetic, they can help you find flowers that go with your existing bouquets and arrangements. Look for varieties you can use in several places like baby’s breath, daisies, cymbidium orchid, freesia, stephanotis, and spray rose. These flowers are known for retaining their appearance, even after being cut.
Place Them Wisely
A skilled stylist will know where to put the flowers, so they flatter your hairdo and last all day. They should be arranged away from your hairline to avoid an allergic reaction. If flowers come into contact with your makeup and natural body oils, they may begin to wilt before the end of your wedding.
Handle Blooms With Care
Flowers are delicate, so they should be refrigerated until the stylist needs them. Apply all hair care products before adding the flowers, so the chemicals don’t harm their petals.
Fasten Them Securely
Most flowers can be held in place using hairpins along the stem; this method is particularly effective for large single blooms and small clusters. If you are using small individual blossoms, use a decorative pin to pierce the center of the flower and stick it in your hair.
