Because you want to look and feel at your most beautiful on your big day, it’s important to remember those last finishing touches to really complete your bridal look. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a boho bride or want to add extra wow factor to your look, then consider choosing some stunning flowers as your wedding hair accessories.
Flowers can completely transform your hairstyle with very little effort – which is great news for low maintenance brides! They are a versatile look for any time of the year and you could even choose blooms in shades that match your colour scheme.
For ideas and tips on how to pull off wedding hair with flowers, we’ve handpicked some of our favourite styles to inspire you – starting off with this amazing flower crown from Louise Avery Flowers!

A flower crown is a really easy way to do wedding hair with flowers, simply pop it in and voila – instant boho beauty! You could pair the crown with tumbling, loose waves as seen above if you want to feel like an ethereal princess.
To save money on the budget you could even make your own wedding flower crown with the help of our step by step guide.
If you don’t feel like you’ve got the magic touch when it comes to DIY then how about this incredible statement hair crown from Not on the High Street. The combination of roses and white flowers makes for one romantic look and it would certainly accentuate a vintage wedding theme.
Boost the height of your hair by pairing the crown with a voluminous beehive – a versatile look that would work for long locks and as a wedding hair idea for short hair.

You don’t have to be limited to using only summer wedding flowers in your hair – you can definitely work this fashion forward trend in the colder months too!
We love this autumnal themed hair crown which has a rich colour palette of romantic red and burnt orange. If you’re planning a relaxed bridal look, pair the flowers with a loose chignon and leave some strands loose for a deliberate ‘undone’ look. This style is also ideal if you want your wedding hair flowers to be more subtle to avoid the crown overpowering your look.

For a glamorous way to do wedding hair with flowers, make your hair big and bouncy with lots of gorgeous curls. Keep the curls frizz free and tame any flyaway strands with hairspray for a more polished look.

If you want your bridesmaids to have their wedding hair with flowers then a thinner, more natural flower headpiece is a great way to do the trend, without the risk of their hairstyle clashing with yours!
We’re inspired by this pretty green headband which is complemented beautifully with a simple, loose hairstyle. Although it is pictured here with a purple bridesmaid dress, this crown is versatile enough to be worn with dresses of any colour.

For an elegant and simple way to do wedding hair flowers, why not try popping a few delicate blooms into an updo for a flash of 60s and 70s inspiration. This style by Lipstick and Curls makes it look as if the flowers have been effortlessly weaved in.
It’s best not to use hairspray on fresh flowers so make sure that you set your hairstyle before you add the blooms. To keep individual flowers or smaller pieces secure, fasten them in your hair with bobby pins or hidden clips so that they don’t fall out.
Both these gorgeous hairstyles have both been styled with flowers that would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding. A tiny handful of white gypsophila (also known as ‘baby’s breath’) slotted into a bun or chignon would complement your wedding dress to perfection, whereas a combination of pink or peach flowers would add a pop of colour to your tresses.

If you consider yourself a bit of a peacock bride and can’t resist the chance to show off on your wedding day (and let’s face it, who doesn’t!), then you need a statement wedding hairstyle with a fabulous floral twist.
Think big and beautiful flower crowns that frame your face like a halo. Perfect for rustic, country garden weddings, this dramatic look will certainly ensure that all eyes are on you and would provide the crowning glory to a lovely lace or vintage wedding dress.
Keep your make up classic and simple if you opt for this bold accessory so that your natural beauty shines through. Try a small flick of eyeliner and a dusky pink lip to make your features stand out, or alternatively, you could keep eyes pared down and give your lips a swipe of colour that co-ordinates with the focal colour of your flower crown.

For a timeless look a la Kate Middleton when she married Prince William in 2011, a half up half down wedding hairstyle is a pretty and versatile style that is loved by many brides. Put a boho spin on this style by adding a crown or hairband of small flowers to frame your face.
We love this stunning bridal look created by Camilla J Collins, which shows that a delicate flower crown is the perfect finishing touch to this universally flattering hairstyle.
A side swept hairstyle pinned back with a large, singular flower is another relaxed way to do wedding hair with flowers. From thin locks to thick afro-textured hair, this style would suit all hair types and is so easy to achieve. Simply style your hair to the desired effect, sweep it over to the preferred side and pin it back with grips and hair spray – add your flower to finish!

A pretty side plait pinned with a flower is a youthful hairstyle that would lend itself well to an asymmetrical wedding dress. This look would also make a great hairstyle for your flower girls or any younger bridesmaids.

We’re in awe of this incredible oversized peony hairpiece from Rock ‘N Rose! This brand is well worth a look for their fantastic range of floral hair accessories that would excite a non traditional bride. This avant garde headband is a real show stopper and is a must for brides who like to set fashion trends rather than follow them.

For an everlasting variation of the wedding hair flowers trend, try a ‘flower’ that is beautifully crafted from materials like lace or netting. We love this look from Brides and Beauty which would provide a cherished accessory you can hold onto long after the wedding to wear again.
Create a retro wedding hairstyle with a floral headband that sits beneath your hairline. This look from Lipstick and Curls is the definition of 1920s glam and is a style that Daisy Buchanan would be proud of. We love the addition of feathers and embellishment to the white flower which jazzes it up!
