The best hair accessory for a spring or summer bride? Flowers! Whether you picture yourself walking down the aisle wearing an updo, a half-up half-down hairstyle, or wavy locks, wedding hairstyles with fresh (or faux) blooms are totally versatile.
Springtime is known as one of the best seasons for flowers in the wedding industry with the peony, a bridal favorite, being at its peak in April and May. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that we love spring weddings for their gorgeous floral details. Besides the standard bouquet and centerpieces, we're especially obsessed with all of the unique ways brides incorporate florals into their big day. These wedding hairstyles with floral accents are a perfect example of just that.
For classic brides, try tucking a single flower into a chignon or high bun. Ladies looking to wear their hair down on their big day can pin just a few strands back and secure them with a bright, lush bloom for an utterly romantic vibe. And, of course, bohemian brides-to-be should try a flower crown on for size. Some brides choose to coordinate their wedding hair accessories with their bouquets, while others opt for something totally different.
While there are certain flowers that lend themselves to a floral hairstyle (like smaller blooms with a lot of texture), nearly any blossom can be incorporated into your wedding hairstyle. Try roses, orchids, gardenias, and other similar buds.
Scroll on to see some of our favorite flower-adorned wedding hairstyles for every bridal style.
Sweet Buds Nestled in a Messy Tuck
Tucked here and there, roses and ranunculus seem to have sprung up naturally in this messy updo. This style is so whimsical and boho, it gives us all the storybook romance feels.
A Peony-Adorned Updo
Who needs a veil? This bride opted to wear a vibrant peony in her hair for her fiesta in Mexico. The bright pop of color definitely brings some vibrant vibes to the otherwise simple hairstyle.
A Monochrome Flower Crown
Opt for a monochromatic flower crown for a unique look. This bride chose a scarlet floral headband for her colorful wedding in Spain that matched the red accents in her natural bouquet.
Boho Styles with Succulents and Sage
Both of these brides chose to rock wedding hairstyles with flowers on their big day. However, they selected sprigs of greenery, succulents, and sage to give their looks a more bohemian vibe.
Frida Kahlo Braids
At her destination wedding in San Miguel De Allende, this bride wore a Frida Kahlo–style updo, accessorized with fresh orchids. We think braids make the perfect post for nestling a few buds into. Not only is this hairstyle stunning, but it is also rather pragmatic for a night of dancing. The braids can withstand quite a lot of movement, and the flowers can be anchored into them with pins so they won't budge as they would in a loose style.
Elevate a Relaxed Style
To match the garden vibe of her wedding, this bride added some sunny blooms to her loose, relaxed updo.
Cheery Blooms in an Elegant Updo
At her Vermont wedding, this bride used lush white peonies in both her locks and her bouquet. The cheerful, blown-open blooms inject some brightness into the organic bouquet and elegant updo.
Delicate Buds Grazing a Soft Chignon
The finishing touch to this Washington D.C. bride's soft chignon? Green and white buds tucked delicately within her tresses. A fresh, floral breath to an autumnal wedding.
A White Flower Crown Atop a Messy Bun
You can thank Meghan Markle for all the perfectly imperfect updos that we're seeing among brides. This particular bride accessorized hers with a white flower crown.
A Tropical Flower Crown with Bold Blooms
A bold, bright flower crown in tropical hues suits this bride's beachside wedding perfectly. We love when brides tie in local flora, especially if they're having a tropical destination wedding that lends itself to stunning exotic blooms like these.
A Sweet Floral Touch to Wavy Locks
Wearing her wavy tresses down, this bride added a few blooms for a summery feel. The modest white flowers mirror the floral lace of the wedding dress to a T.
Simple Roses Make an Impact
Go bold with supersizing flowers like this bride did at her Maryland wedding. The pastel colors are a feminine choice for the oversized blooms and complement her sweet style.
If going for a bold floral touch in your hair, we suggest sticking to one type of flower and mixing the shades in lieu of an array of species that could overpower your look.
A Halo of Roses for a Chic Chignon
How lovely! White and blush-hued roses add a dash of romance to this bride's classic updo. The perfect complement to that stunning lace dress.
A Daisy Chain Flower Crown
Anyone else getting hit with a wave of childhood nostalgia? This bride's simple white flower crown reminds us of those daisy chains we painstakingly made in our youth.
A Ponytail of Foraged Florals
This may be the most chic ponytail we've ever encountered. This Detroit bride adorned her low ponytail of loose waves with foraged flowers from the morning of her wedding. It doesn't get much fresher than that.
A Single Bloom
Sometimes a simple rose is all you need. This minimalist bride nailed the look by tucking a single white rose behind her ear for her laid-back nuptials.
