Fresh flowers aren’t just for your bouquet and centerpieces. Consider adding them to your wedding day hairstyle. Get a whimsical look with a fresh flower crown or go classic with a few simple white flowers tucked into an updo. One tip for the taking: Do a little homework before you decide on what flowers to use. You may love ranunculus but they’ll wilt in the matter of an hour. So choose a heartier flower — amaryllis, succulents and orchids are all durable options. Here, a few of our favorite brides who pulled it off!
Wrapped Around A Bun
Start with a bun — high or low — then ask your stylist to pin flowers all the way around the base of the bun. Small filler flowers like bouvardia, stephanotis or waxflowers create a soft, romantic look, while medium-sized blooms in bright colors make the style whimsical.

A big thanks to Siobhan for popping by with a cd of these gorgeous pics from her wedding in May, which took place at The Rectory in Glandore. We loved working with Siobhan on her flowers, we adored her orange & white theme, and how cute is that page boy with his turquoise jumper!?
Gosh, the months seem to be flying so quickly here at Daisy Chain! We’ve really been enjoying working with lots of brides on their weddings this year, and are super excited to get busy on the ones yet to come.
We recently had the absolute pleasure of working on a beautiful, soft & romantic wedding at the magical Adare Manor.
The scent of the flowers in the church (Crecora, very near Adare Manor) were amazing! Peonies, David Austin Roses, Tea Roses & Freesia, all visually complimented by perfect hydrangea, viburnum & foliages.
All the bouquets were a combination of white, pale pink & pink peonies. Yum!
In May we created this buttonhole & bouquet for a bride who was having an intimate wedding in Glandore. “Sweet Avalanche” has to be one of our most favourite pink roses, it is just so pretty! Teamed with gorgeous lemon-scented waxflower gave it a bit of a vintage feel.
“Blue” flowers can be tricky, but not at this time of year! Right now there is an abundance of choice in blue, including hydrangea, agapanthus, eringium, delphinium, nigella & cornflower. This bride went for eringium in her bouquet, teamed with pretty white roses & spray roses, intersperced with “baby blue” eucalyptus. The buttonhole of white rose, wired agapanthus & foliage complimented it really beautifully.
We were delighted with how this bouquet of Calla Lillies turned out! It was so gorgeous with it’s collar of white bouvardia & parvi-eucalyptus trim.
There really is something very special and wonderful about vintage inspired weddings. We love everything from the little vintage style touches to the full on, themed affairs. Vintage can be classical, but it can also be masses of fun, and we adore fun weddings!
And here’s a beautiful bouquet we recently created for a bride with beautiful vintage style roses & waxflower, in off white to champagne tones, so classic & romantic!
When it comes to “vintage” style flowers we think that scent is a vital, they must have a scent that brings you back to a special time or event. Lots of our brides love the scent of roses, we couldn’t tell you how many of them say it reminds them of making perfume from rose petals in their grandmothers’ gardens! Some of our favourite scented rose varieties include “Norma Jean“, David Austin “Keira” & “White O’Hara“.
For superbly styled vintage wedding ideas, have a look at Pearl & Godiva. They are based in Dunmanway, and have a huge collection of vintage items available to hire. They also offer styling services, their work is stunning!
