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.

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 Рthere 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.

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.

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‚Äôt 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.
