For some brides, a wedding hairstyle just isn't complete without the addition of a gorgeous veil. But for others, beautiful blooms make for the ultimate wedding hair accessory. One particular flower that these brides have been loving lately? Baby's breath! Wedding hairstyles with baby's breath might just be one of the biggest bridal beauty trends of the moment. And considering how pretty it looks, this is one trend that won't be wilting anytime soon.

Baby's breath has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance. Previously deemed a dreaded filler flower or considered a dated 1980s fad, baby's breath is once again blooming at weddings everywhere. Since it totes a drastically more affordable price tag than many in-demand wedding flowers, such as garden roses and peonies, brides can use bundles of the bloom to decorate their ceremony or reception tables, and have taken to carrying baby's-breath-only bouquets down the aisle. And with their soft rustic look, the flower looks right at home at barn weddings and relaxed outdoor ceremonies.

Bridal hair is also getting the baby's breath treatment, as brides are incorporating the flower into their wedding hairstyles for a look that's effortlessly ethereal and oh-so angelic. Some are dotting their lush, full braids with baby's breath, while others are opting to use it for flower crowns. Bridal parties are also getting in on the trend, with bridesmaids and flower girls similarly using the flower in their big-day hairstyles.

No matter your personal style, baby's breath can be a gorgeous hair accessory—depending on how you decide to use the buds, the vibe can be either bohemian, rustic, or romantic. Searching for some inspiration? Scroll on to see our favorite wedding hairstyles featuring baby's breath.
