Combine messy up-do with pink and white roses tucked in for a boho bride’s dream hairstyle.
5. Boho Succulents
For a boho vibe that’s more rocker chick pixie than a fairy.
We love succulents with a few sprigs of greenery to finish.
Image: Anastasia Selora
Natural, fresh, and funky.
6. A Whisper of Baby’s Breath
Baby’s breath (otherwise known as gypsophila) softly sprinkles the hair.
Subtle yet breathtakingly beautiful.
Image: Bhawjeet Sawhney
It adds a fairy tale touch to updos, loose flowing hair and half-up, half-down styles
7. Dramatic and Sensual Red
This striking juxtaposition of pure white, and passionate red definitely makes a statement.
High in drama and sensuality.
Image: Stephanie Rose Photography for Wedding Chicks
Choose a matching red bouquet for the ultimate effect.
8. Sweet White
There’s something special about a scattering of petite white blooms.
No complex designs or intricate colour combinations.

Just clear, pure white with a touch of foliage for contrast.
9. Delicate Floral Hair Comb
Concerned about keeping flowers in place in your hair?
Take a look at this delicate pink and white floral hair comb.

Your stylist can also use bobby pins for extra security to make sure it stays in place throughout the day.

Brighten up a half-up, half-down styling with a simple pop of colour from a small floral grouping.
This design brings sunshine and vibrancy to your wedding hair.

11. Bright, Big and Bold
Perfect for vivacious brides with a love of nature.

This floral crown of intense oranges and pinks instils a sense of fun and adventure.
Start the marriage as you mean to go on!
This look works particularly well on wavy hair and if you’re choosing to get married on the beach.
12. Cascade of Flowers
This look instantly adds some fairytale factor to your big day.
The floral cascade looks stunning on brides with long hair, who would like to keep their hair down on the day.
This elegantly undone look is something we do best at Blooming Haus.
It just so natural yet so put together at the same time – we love it!
13. The Elegance of Orchids
Orchids exude elegance and refinement – there is just something so awe-inspiring about them!
These timeless blooms are also associated with fertility, sexuality, and love, so wearing them on your wedding day seems appropriate.
Most strikingly the orchid is a very unique shape and comes in an array of different sizes and colours.
However, we think one medium-sized orchid is enough to make the perfect statement without it looking over the top.
14. Wildflower Fairy Tale
Wildflowers are part classic beauty and part bohemian.
Image: Paula McManus Photography
Embrace your inner fairytale princess with a spray of wildflowers in a low loose bun.
15. Bun Accentuating Halo
It’s not often you see brides sporting a high halo bun for their wedding, but when they do?
It’s jaw-dropping, especially when paired with a ballgown style dress.
It’s sophisticated, powerful, and enduring. A really great option if you want your hair off your face.
Although the flowers in this picture are not real we think some simple pink roses or smaller flowers soften the bun and give it that extra dash of elegance.
For a twist on this concept, go green with a foliage halo.
16. Updo Flower Weave
Imbue your wedding hair with the essence of nature.
In this creation, foraged flowers are woven through an intricate updo.
Image: Larissa Cleveland
Hair and flowers come together in one pure masterpiece.
This is one of our all-time favourites looks for wedding hairstyles with flowers.

We’re right there with you.

Roses and romance go hand in hand.
From tiny buds to bounteous blooms.

This short bridal hairstyle is taken to a whole new level using the gloriously simple placements of two large open rose blooms.
TOP TIP: Big blooms work great with short or afro style hair.
19. Dainty Florals for a Half-Up, Half Down
Take a wavy half-up, half-down hairstyle and mix in a delicate floral sprig, what do you get?
The result is this dainty wedding hair flower design.
A great option for modern brides embracing traditional romance.
We also think this look is a great option for your bridesmaids.
20. Daisy Chain Nostalgia
Who doesn’t remember making daisy chains a child?
Maybe you even played “he loves me, he loves me not.”
Now, you have your answer, get nostalgic with a daisy chain inspired style.
Add some extra colour for an adult take on childhood playfulness.

Can I wear flowers in my hair and a veil?
Yes, you can. You don’t have to choose between a veil and flowers.
You can have both.
Wear a drop or halo veil, or wear your veil on the back of your head.
Then attach your choice of flowers above the veil for a classic style.
How does a flower crown last?
Care for your floral crown, and it will last 1-5 days on average, depending on which flowers you choose.
We’re here to help, and we’ll show you precisely what to do to get the most from your crown.
How do I keep my hair in place on my wedding day?
Your hair can go through a lot on your Wedding Day.
You want to give it the best chance of surviving intact.
It helps to ask your stylist to add volume and use plenty of hairspray.
Use bobby pins to keep hair combs and hairpieces in place.
Add accessories, including flowers, as late as possible.
Obviously, this doesn’t apply if flowers are being woven into your hair.
Finally, DO NOT MESS WITH YOUR HAIR!
It’s really tempting to keep touching it, but you just end up spreading oil from your fingertips and that really isn’t what you want.
Which hairstyle goes with my wedding dress?
Hairstyle is always going to come down to personal taste.
But there are some tips we’ve picked up.
Soft, romantic styles usually match with intricate dress designs.
Think loose curls and face-framing tendrils.
Sleek hairstyles like a bun or French twist complement modern, structured dresses.
Do I need to book a wedding hair trial?
All the stylists we know suggest that brides book a wedding hair trial.
You get to see if the style is a good choice, and amendments can be made before the big day.
How do I prep my hair for my wedding day?
From our years working with brides and stylists, we know that you shouldn’t usually wash your hair on the day.
Clean hair is silky and difficult to manage, especially for updos and attaching accessories.
You should typically shampoo and condition your hair the day before your wedding.
I can’t decide, should I wear my hair up or down for my wedding?
There are a few things to consider to help you make your decision.
If the weather is hot or humid, an updo is a good choice.
If your hair doesn’t hold curls, choose braids or an updo.
Think about the neckline of your dress. If you want to show it off, sweep your hair to the side or go for an updo.
How do I choose my wedding hair accessories?
Your personal style is always going to have a big influence.
You also have to think about complementing your dress and your hair.
Consider your different options before you come to a decision.
Fresh flowers have natural vitality.
Hair vines are a hot choice for boho beauty.
Tiaras give you classic elegance.
Hairpins add a simple touch of style.
We’ve loved exploring these stunning floral wedding hairstyles with you.
