Yay for Dahlias! I’m going to fasten one to a clip to hold back my ahir behind one ear. Still not sure how this is going to be accomplished — perhaps floral wire?

If you are getting it from your florist, ask her to do it for you. If you are getting it on your own, call a local florist and ask for her expert opinion! She may have tips to keep it alive and not limp for a longer time!

I would say that Dahlias are very delicate flowers and for hair design purposes, which need a lot of manipulation, I won’t recommend them. Instead, orchids are very easy to work with and will last longer than dahlias. Mini roses are also a very good option!

What about a lily?? I want a flower in my hair and love the bold look of lilies.

Do those hold up well or would they get all wilty after a few hours?

Also, my dress is the Casablanca 1900 which is very antique-looking. I’m worried that a modern flower in my hair may undo the antique, classic look that the dress gives.

What do you think?

I was just going to use floral wire and attach a few floers to a large bobby pin.

Perhaps have 3-4 as backups as well, ready to be changed out!  That way it can stay looking fresh all night.

Does anyone know anything about pretty fake ones that would look beautiful in your hair without wilting?

What about prices and locations?

Dahlias are delicate.  Gardenias, orchids, and carnations are hearty enough to last all day.  If using Gardenia, I’d recommend a florist.  They are delicate, but if processed properly make for a goreous hairpiece.

I would suggest fake flowers. There are so many that are beautiful and look very real. I think that a real flower is much more likely to look pretty all night. With a live flower, your risk it wilting and browning. Check the blogs- many bees have discussed flowers for their hair. Or search Etsy. There are tons of pretty flowers there!
