Fresh flower headpieces are a huge trend for spring 2014 wedding hairstyles and although they are mainly thought of for more boho style brides, they can be woven into various shapes and sizes to suit even the most traditional bride. Fresh floral headpieces can make a huge statement on the day depending on your personal style, think colourful oversized crowns for a full-on flower child look, or a simple and elegant Grecian style vine intertwined with braids for a vintage, glamorous feel. However you want to wear flowers in your hair, you’re sure to find a few wedding hairstyles to inspire you right here.
Colourful floral crowns are a huge trend in fashion at the moment (check out the array of silk flower styles on offer at ASOS at the moment for example!) and it was only a matter of time before they dominated in bridal. Of course we are obsessed with this youthful, carefree style which is ideal for making a stylish statement for your outdoor wedding in the sun. For more inspiration from this style, look to Claire Pettibone’s Fall 2013 Collection on the catwalk , or check out our recently published floral wedding palette.
If you would prefer not to go full-on flower child and keep your look a little more subdued, a rustic hair vine is the way to go. These hair vines can be worn a variety of ways for differing levels of impact. The crown hair vine is similar to the previous styles but is far more toned down, creating a more natural, rustic look. As we mentioned in our intro, you could channel your inner Grecian goddess with an Ivy hair vine intertwined in a large braid, or just placed to the side of the head.
More traditional brides should opt for smaller blooms placed around the back or side of the hair. A formal up do will make the style more glamorous and keep you away from that boho look, or you can walk the line between both with a small fresh floral crown. Another option is to place fresh flower hair pins in your up do. If you have dark or red hair, lighter colours such as white or ivory flowers will really pop and make a fab impact on the day.
A single large bloom such as a Peony or Dahlia works especially well for destination or beach brides when worn to the side over a messy up do. Choose a colour to complement your whole theme and add to the exotic feel of the day.
