Incorporating floral accents like wedding flower hair designs into your budget wedding decor can be a breeze. Placing flowers in your hair can be just as easy, affordable, and quick as it sounds. Here are some tips for flower hair designs for your wedding.
1. Select light flower. Large and heavy flowers like lilies, roses, peonies, garden roses, and succulents are going to be hard to work into hair. They are too heavy and bulk for a simple DIY and the last think you need on your wedding day is frustration with your hair. The best flowers for the job are: Fillers (baby’s breath, waxflower, solidago etc.), freesia, ranunculus, florets from hydrangeas, spray mums, spray roses, sweetheart roses, anemones, lisianthus and dendrobium orchids.
Make this design by using floral adhesive to attach and position white larkspur florets, pieces of cream astilbe, greens,and scabiosa to a plastic hair comb. Its very simple!
2. Don’t try to make a complicated design. Place simple clusters of flowers in your hair. If you plan on making a head band or halo make sure you have practiced in advance. Those designs can be a little more complex but easy to learn if done a few times. Check out with DIY floral head band tutorial if you want to learn how to make a floral head band.
3. Don’t over order. Less is more in this circumstance. You will not need to order extra flowers for this simple addition to your DIY. Just use a few blooms (remove them from their stems) and tastefully decorate.
This week, Katie Couric‘s “Wednesday Weddings” featured Darcy Miller, the Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings, giving advice on budget DIY wedding centerpieces! Darcy Miller walked through a beautiful display of DIY tables capes that are budget friendly, easy to create, and fashionable. Watch the full video and read below to download the corresponding resources.
1. Baby’s Breath & Printed Vellum Lace Vases – See how cylinder vases paired with baby’s breath can be jazzed up with Vellum paper! Simply print the lace design on vellum paper, you can download the pattern at Martha Stewart Weddings. To replicate the idea in the video, wrap the vellum paper around cylinders, napkin rings, and decorate votives. We particularly like this project because it is very low stress, low cost, simple, yet beautiful. It gives you the best of both worlds, aesthetic and budget friendly!
2. Fruit Centerpieces - The trendy fruit centerpieces are super simple to put together. Get a bowl-like shaped vase, add lemons with greenery to achieve the look in the video. Darcy Miller added special candy decor that is very simple to DIY. Martha Stewart provides the candy labels for your wedding, just print the PDF, cut out each label, and glue them to tins! And if you really want to venture out, alternate between fruit and flowers on your ceremony tables to introduce multiple textures to the atmosphere.
3. DIY Carnation Ombre Centerpieces – Ombre is trend that seems a more difficult to pull off than you think. Just grab flowers in multiple shades of the same color and them place them together from lightest to darkest! If you can’t find a specific flower in every shade you want, don’t rule out the option for floral spray (very authentic looking on flowers!). In the video, Darcy Miller and Katie Couric agree that using carnations in this way makes them look sleek and fashion forward. They are very affordable and can jazz up a wedding when used correctly.
