The choice of the right wedding hairstyle is as responsible as the choice of a wedding dress. If you can’t decide between an updo and down-do type, we suggest you pay attention to the variety of different half up half down bridal hairstyles. This way you’ll enjoy the best qualities of the both hairstyle groups – the naturalness and chic of freely flowing locks and the elegance of the lifted up part.
While we love a traditional veil, it’s safe to say we’re suckers for a bridal flower crown. Not only are they absolutely stunning, but they’re perfect for DIY brides. Not to mention, they take the guesswork out of adding accessories to complete your gown, as flower crowns have the ability to stand alone. It seems like brides everywhere can agree, too, as many are swapping a veil or jeweled headpiece for one of these adorned halos.
To find one that’s quintessentially you, consider two factors: your personal style and the climate of your wedding. If you’re more of an ethereal, Marchesa type of bride getting married in the spring, try a wreath of tiny white flowers, maybe intertwined with small pearls — so subtle and delicate.
Those getting married in a tropical climate might want to consider a punchy crown; one in an array of bright, bold colors. (Then, tie it all together with a lipstick color that matches one of the flowers in your crown — perhaps a pop of red or pink.) Even winter brides can wear flower crowns: a wreath with acorns and greenery paired with cashmere wraps and fur muffs will look so chic. (A sprinkling of snow on your head also adds the perfect touch).
Flower crowns amplify any bridal hairstyle in addition to being totally on-trend. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites for any kind of bride.
