Wedding Trend: Fresh Florals

By Sophie Fleetwood

The nature trend is growing quickly in the wedding world. From a whimsical forest wedding to a fairy-like garden ceremony, a floral wonderland, or a rustic woodland reception, these outdoor weddings are increasing in popularity. Just do a search on Pinterest and you'll see thousands of photos of decorations from nature incorporated into ceremonies and receptions. Specifically, the floral trend is taking the wedding planning process by storm. Brides are now finding that sometimes simple things from nature like pine cones, leaves, or delicate wildflowers, can make your wedding truly Pinterest-worthy. So, today we've brought you a post that incorporates this floral trend in more than just your decorations, but in your hair! If you're looking for a way to wear your hair that is feminine and whimsical, the floral trend is for you. Wildflowers aren't just for decorating a ceremony. They're our new favorite accessory! Use them in your hair as a flower crown or have them intricately placed in your beautiful braid to gently add a pop of color. Keep reading for more ways to wear them in your hair!

Flowers add even more texture to a loose braid. Use flowers that are smaller and more dainty so that it doesn't overpower your braid. Baby's Breath, Gyp, or Statice flowers are perfect for this.

For the bride that wants her flower to be a statement accessory, try one larger flower and tuck it into the side of your hair. Or use two medium sized flowers pinned together and tucked into the side of your updo.

Flower crowns are an accessory fit for a boho queen. These crowns give off a very fairy-like feel and, depending on what flowers you choose, it can add vibrant color to your white dress.

Flower crowns don't have to be made entirely of flowers. Try adding in some fresh berries!
