Personally, I think that a side bun, a flower, and a veil worn all at once would be just too much going on.

Why don’t you wear the veil for the ceremony, and then after you remove it, wear the flower for the remainder of the evening/reception? It’s exactly what my gf did at her own wedding.

Do a test run and see how you feel about it. Also ask someone who will give their honest opinion to tell you what they think.

I don’t think it is too much at all, I think it adds a little extra something!

I didn’t have a side bun, but had a large low bun centered at the nape of my neck.  I also wore a flower/feather clip and a very simple veil that I kept on all night.  It can be done and not look “too much.”   My dress was also pretty simple too so I think that made it look less overdone.

During my ceremony, I had a messy side bun, a pearl/crystal flowery hair comb, and a veil. :

@stacielizzi:  I purchased silk orchids for my hair in case natural ones didnt work out. I had my las vegas wedding and I really wanted natural flowers. My stylist put in the little flower and it was already looking a little dry. I changed for this little babies I had purchased on Etsy

You can see a little of my little flower in my profile picture 


this are also great for fittings as they dont get ugly. 


Post some pictures of your hair style it is one of my favorites favorites.
