I need help.. so I am thinking of having a tray of flowers (most likely orchid) and a bowl of hair pins next to it and asking guests to pin a flower to their hair (either before ceremony or before reception)… just for fun…. I got this idea from Martha Stewart
What do you think of this idea? Would you pin a fresh flower on to your hair at a wedding? Do you think this is fun or silly or not worth the cost? It will likely cost me75cents for about maybe 80 female guests..
A lil more context: my wedding is outdoor at an art museum overlooking the ocean. So orchid on the hair totally feels tropical but my theme is casual elegance (lanterns, light pink, silver)…

I think it’s cute, but most people won’t do it (I only would if I had an updo), and it’s sort of neither here nor there. If you want to, maybe set it up for your BMs, mom, grandma, etc. so it’s more of a VIP thing, but I think most guests will just skip it.

Sorry I think most guests probably wouldn’t do this and you would be out money for orchids

I don’t think it would be worth the cost, as a lot of guests might just skip it. It’s cute but it also seems a little…random? If I were a guest, I don’t know if I would do it…might depend on how I had my hair done and how I felt that day. 🙂
I agree it would be a cute idea for bridal party, moms, grandmas, and guests of honor. In my friend’s wedding, the bridemaids (including me) all had flowers in our hair, and it was fun and cute. But consider even within that circle of people (i.e. moms, grandmas…), some people might just not like the look of a flower in their hair. Or maybe they would actually prefer it to a corsage. You should ask them!

Thanks bees for the opinions 🙂 I fall under the yea i would totally put a fresh flower on my hair 😉 but I’d rather not do it if some people actually wouldn’t do it.. I’ll keep that in mind to do it just for the bridal party…
You guys are always the best yay…

I think it would make your guests feel included and special, I think it is totally worth it!

Oh, this idea is absolutely adorable! But…I don’t think a lot of people would do it. Most people are just like that :/ Little girls, teenagers, and *older adults would probably think it’s great and end up snatching up more than one though! I would look at your guest list and decide if they would enjoy it.

I did something similar–had an orchid placed on top of a folded dinner napkin at the place settings and almost everyone did it, BUT we live on Maui and flowers behind the ear is kind of a given 😉
