Half Up Half Down / A Little Pinned Away From The Face
All the romance of hair down and loose, just with a little more interest.
The half you put up doesn’t have to be the crown section, you could do, as the gorgeous bride did below (no.15) and braid the hair from one side of your head and sweep the rest of your hair over one shoulder.

A Beautiful Braid / Side Braid
Delicate flowers woven into an everyday braid or fishtail braid make them so much more fancy. Use baby’s breath, daisies or even tiny roses or rosebuds.
Or try a twisted rope style braid like no. 17 below to up the glam factor even more.

My Top Tips On Choosing The Perfect Flowers For Your Big Day Hair
Here are a few things to consider:
What Type of Flowers?
Consider what flowers you’ll be having in your bouquet and centerpieces. Not that they have to be matchy matchy but complimentary blooms and colours will give your overall bridal look coherence. Also think about the amount and weight of the flowers you want to use as it’s important that you’re comfortable on the day too.
During our Roses & Ribbons DIY Series, I discovered just how deceptively heavy a crown of roses really is!
Work with your florist to discuss the different options and combinations of flowers. Or if you’re going the DIY route, be sure to do a test run before the big day to make sure your floral fancies will stay in place!
What Style of Wedding Dress?
When deciding on any wedding hairstyle (with or without flowers) it’s important to consider the style of wedding dress you’ll be wearing. Are there any details you want to show off like an intricate back or delicate cap sleeves? If so, you might prefer to wear your hair up or swept to the side. Consider the type of material your dress is made from and the cut will.
To Veil or Not Veil?
None of the brides above wore a veil alongside their flowers but that’s not to say you should rule a veil out completely. (For my bridal look I wore a few blush and cream fabric roses by my ear and a long, tiered cathedral length veil.) Or perhaps you could opt for a veil for your ceremony and a floral crown for your reception.
Fresh or Fabric?
Wearing fresh, fragrant flowers in your hair feels extra special but bear in mind if you’re wearing them all day, they may start to look a little wilted towards the end of the night. (Not that you or your guests will notice as you’ll be too busy shaking what your mama gave ya on the dance floor!) Fabric flowers can often look very realistic and you’ll be left with a beautiful keepsake of your day that will never ever wilt.
