Brides have long worn flowers in their hair, both fresh and faux. Today, photographer Corbin Gurkin and Anne Bowen from Stems in Charleston bring us some totally romantic ideas for wearing flowers in your hair…

Replacing traditional wax flowers, verbena flowers are paired with a vintage lace veil.

Below, lily-of-the-valley, miniature ivy and white licorice plant are twisted into an open-front head wreath.

A single gardenia or white peony is pinned behind the ear. Winchester peplum gown by Carol Hannah.

Hellebores, jasmine and coral bells dress up a low chignon.

A wreath of hellebores is tied with Midori feather velvet ribbon in dusty rose. The result is perfectly boho romantic when paired with a blush vintage gown.

No reason flowers have to stand alone. Here, lily-of-the-valley and kalanchoe are clustered with a feather and vintage brooch. Monticello v-neck silk chiffon gown by Carol Hannah.

This fresh spring bouquet includes sweet peas, hosta, white licorice plant, hallemore,  tillandsia, coral belles, and lily-of-the-valley.


Thank you to Corbin Gurkin and Anne Bowen for sending over these beautiful bridal looks!

      I love the look of flowers in the hair. My question has always been, is it too much to have flowers in the hair as well as a beaded sparkly belt or sash? Do you have to choose one or the other? I can’t seem to find any inspiration for pairing the two.
