GSS’s Things We LOVE :: Floral Bridal Accessories

Only ONE more day until the weekend!!  Very few things get us as excited as the weekend does.  Weekends = Weddings and you know that we LOVE  weddings!  We also love the trend of gorgeous floral bridal accessories.  It doesn’t matter what wedding style we are swooning over, a floral headpiece on a bride makes us let out that extra sigh. Whether it’s a single stem for a traditional bride or a floral crown for a garden bride we love seeing brides embrace natural elements in more ways than just their bouquets. Real flowers are our favorite, but a fabulous silk flower can give us just as much of a thrill. Even if you feel as though a traditional veil is a “must have” there are some great options for hair florals as a quick change before making your reception entrance. They are much easier to handle as you dance the night away than all of the layers of tulle or netting hanging from your perfectly placed wedding ‘do. Picking the right floral accent for your bridal style can be a little confusing so we are going to break it down into four major categories:  garden (rustic or vintage), modern, bohemian, and traditional.

Garden (Rustic or Vintage) – A garden bride usually embraces one of two styles – rustic or vintage. This of course, is not a rule and any type of wedding can take place in a garden if properly designed and styled. For this post though garden brides are embracing rustic and vintage wreaths to take their style to the next level. The hair can be left down as a nod to a little bohemia or nothing makes us happier than a messy side do accented with a gorgeous floral crown.

Modern – What sets a modern bride apart is a sleek up do or simply straight and down without a lot of curls and styling. One single stem can accent this look. To take it a step further away from traditional think outside the box. Spray your stem a metallic color to give it that extra modern “pop”!

Bohemian – For the unconventional and free spirited bride adding a little floral accent to a headband maintains that earthy style without losing your personal touch. Worn with loose, wavy locks the key to maintaining your boho bride style is to not look too “put together” and planned.

Traditional – One large floral, fresh or silk, to accent a traditional up do is the perfect reception accent once you say “I Do” and shed that ceremony veil. A traditional bride doesn’t need to keep that veil on all night to maintain her sense of style, as long as you don’t accent your look with anything too unique or rustic.

Love this look but not sure a floral headpiece is for you? Consider using fresh florals on your dress stash, as a statement necklace or on your wrist and ankles! Gorgeous and unique all of these floral accessory options, shot by , can also be used in a variety of wedding styles!
