Bridal Headpieces: Romantic Styles with Flowers
Up until a few years ago, it was rare to see someone using bridal headpieces with flowers. However, today floral hairpieces are becoming more common and they give a romantic feeling to the bridal look.
It’s currently very fashionable to use flowered prints on clothing. Floral prints are also appearing on clothing for special occasions, like weddings.
With the use of preserved flowers, bridal styles that include hairpieces with flowers are seen more frequently every day. Preserved flowers are natural flowers that are treated to impede them from getting damaged. They can keep their natural form for months or even years.
In this article, we’ll discuss some of the floral headpieces for brides that are most common so you can choose which one you like best for that special day.
Wearing your hair down, brooch-style hairpiece
Until a short while ago, it was almost unthinkable to see a bride wearing her hair down. There was always the idea that a bride had to wear her hair up in a formal hairstyle. Today, many brides wear their hair completely down and only use a brooch in the back.
If you like this option, consider using a brooch with a floral accent. This way, you’ll give the hair a different touch in your bridal attire.
The floral brooches can be of neutral colors or even white so it combines with the dress. On the other hand, if you’re more adventurous you can use flowers with bright colors so the accessory is more noticeable.
One single flower
Another option for that special day is to use a headdress that has just one flower. This type of hairpiece is convenient to use if you decide to tie all your hair up in a bun. You can use a single flower hairpiece whether high on your head or low at the nape of the neck.
You can also choose where in your hair you wear the hairpiece. Most brides choose to wear it on one side of the bun.
Bridal headpieces with a veil included
If you want to wear a floral headdress because you love flower patterns, but you also want to wear a veil, this is your best option. You can use a floral headdress that includes a veil at the bottom. And you can use this type of headdress with your hair tied back in a low bun or with your hair tied back in a braid.
In this way, you can combine both looks. You also have the option of taking the veil off after the ceremony and only using the headdress with flowers for the reception.
Bridal headpieces with ceramic flowers
Another alternative to preserved flowers and what many brides are using now are ceramic flowers. These types of flowers are more resistant than natural or silk flowers. In addition, they provide the bride with the option of a vintage look.
Ceramic flowers are especially pretty with dresses with simple cuts and straight lines that don’t have a lot of detail to highlight their elegance.
Flower crowns or semi-crowns
Among all the possible headpieces with flowers for brides, we think the semi-crown is the most widely used. It’s a headpiece that is used on the back of the head instead of including the forehead like the full crown. The semi-crown headpiece suits hairstyles where the bride wears her hair down or tied up low on the head.
If you really want the flowers and hairstyle to play a large part in your bridal style, then you should use a full flower crown. In contrast to the semi-crown, the full crown also includes the forehead.
If you choose the complete crown, you should spend extra time selecting the color and the size of the flowers. This is so it doesn’t look extravagant or take away from your elegance.
In a diadem
One of the simplest but still beautiful flower headpieces for brides is a diadem. This kind of accessory never goes out of style for a wedding. Using a diadem you can wear your hair down or tied up. You’ll just have to pay attention to the size, type, and color of the flowers you choose.
