MORE THAN ONE WAY TO WEAR FLOWERS ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

 
Whether worn in a continuous circlet or sprinkled through your hair, flowers are a hot trend still burning like wildfire.   Floral wreaths aren't new to complimenting bridal wear.  Queen Victoria wore a wreath of orange blossoms with a veil of Honiton lace back in the 19th Century when she married Prince Albert. In the 1920s, brides wore a wreath of florals and long flowing veils with shorter dresses.  The trending wave we're seeing now for these spectacular floral accents may have to do with how beautifully this topping-it-all-off accessory goes with Boho as well as styles reminiscent of the 20s-30s era.  Below you'll more than a few options for donning flowers on your wedding day

THE REAL DEAL

There's nothing that looks and smells prettier than a wreath of real flowers circling your head.  Fresh can be ordered through your florist possibly echoing some of those in your bouquet.

DRIED FLOWERS 

Some florists will also put dried flowers together for you but you can buy them ready made as well off sites like Etsy or in some specialty bridal shops.  Below is a mix of Baby's Breath and dried Roses Gatsby style with a veil added.

SILK  AND FABRIC FLORALS
Did you know some silk florals in wreaths look just like fresh picked flowers out of the garden?  The  wreath I designed below is made up of silk Magnolias mixed with living ivy in both the hedpiece and added to the front bodice.  Hand-rolled flowers can be made out of all kinds of fbric: dupioni, organza or shantung, sometimes in the same fabric as your gown.

HALF IS SOMETIMES BETTER THAN WHOLE
For some the wreath of flowers can be a bit much even overpowering a great hairstyle  This  floral piece by Cindy Sheridan is half the size of most floral crowns and has an earthy feel that compliments simpler Boho styles.

SCATTERED FLOWERS

These small florals are live and scattered through the hair.  There are small silk florals on pins that an be dappled through long, flowing hair or updos.  Tip They really pop when the color you choose contrasts that of your hair.  Very chic touch!
