As with all hair accessories, hair flowers need to compliment your look and not overpower it. This means wearing the right size and shape of flower that works with your hair style and is in proportion to your body size. A customized fabric flower helps to pull your ‘look’ together from head to toe and adds that extra touch that will look great in your wedding photos. No matter what time of year, a fabric flower will look good from the beginning of your day and still look fabulous when you leave at the end of your reception. Browse my Etsy shop for bridal flowers that can be customized to get just the right look for your wedding day.
Some things to consider when choosing a hair flower:
a. Customized bridal flowers need to be the right size and shape. A large hair flower could overpower your look – you want people looking at ‘all of you’ and your face, not just at the large flower in your hair. Its so important to bring your hair accessories, or a few of your favorites, to your hair trial. Working with your hair stylist, you can be assured the flower size and shape compliments your hair style, especially if you are changing hair styles from ceremony to reception and using the same flower.

b. Customized flowers reflect your personality – you might wear one flower throughout the day or change your hair style and add a ‘statement flower’ just for your reception. A flower that is colorful, has more sparkle or has feathers says to your reception guests, “Its time to have fun!”

c. Embellish the center of your flower with beads, crystals, vintage jewelry, pearls – jewels that compliment your dress and coordinate with your wedding day jewelry. A colored flower or colored center embellishment can pull in your wedding day theme and add to your look.
