If you don't see yourself wearing a veil down the aisle, there are plenty of other hair accessories to finish off your wedding-day look. One of the freshest ideas? Flowers! Whether it's a crown or a single bloom, a floral hairstyle is ultra romantic and it ties together your wedding's décor well, too.
To find out how to best wear blossoms in your hair on your big day, we consulted Brides Live Wedding sponsor Neutrogena hairstylist Sam Leonardi for his best flower fastening tips: He recommends locking in your look with hairspray prior to inserting any buds, because, as Leonardi explains, "spraying can damage the flowers." Also, if you want a big bloom, you may want to try using artificial flowers. "Small flowers tend to have strong stems, but big flowers can break more easily, so consider artificial flowers if you are going big," Leonardi suggests.
Now that you know what not to do when rocking flowers at your wedding, here are a few of our favorite floral hairstyles from real brides to help inspire you!
