Hair Flowers, Flower Crowns and a Natural Look

How better to pull together your wedding theme and your look by wearing natural flowers in your hair. And they are many ways to do this like a subtle colour with one pretty hair flower, the fuller dramatic look of a flower crown bursting with a variety of flowers, or an almost vintage flower creation with foliage and tiny delicate flowers.
