    I’d go with silk, if only for the peace of mind you’d get from knowing that you weren’t going to lose petals throughout the day!

    SLfairytale :  Following this thread! I decided on faux flowers for the crown because I didn’t want to worry about them wilting or being too heavy–and I won’t have to worry about drying it afterwards to keep it.

    i wore fresh and was happy with my decision.

    I don’t have much to say except they were pretty. 🙂 I’m sure silk is just as pretty and it must be nice to keep them, but I’m still totally ok with my decision.

    They did not fall out, they did not wilt.  I took them out at the end of the night but when I took a look at them the next morning they still looked fine, so I know they must have looked fine even after dancing etc.. during the reception.  I have pics up until the first dance and know they looked great then!


    ETA: they were not attached to a comb.  THey were individually wired and my hairstylist and I picked them out and added them.  I actually had a bunch leftover that i braided in to my hair the next day for the brunch. 😛

    Later we actually had to re-take a wedding photo cus we realized we hadn’t taken any group photos with my entire family on my dad’s side so i got back in my dress, put my hair up, and threw some flowers back in (since the photos would be from the front only i didnt worry about recreating my hair perfectly lol).

    I love your dress! I had fresh flowers in my hair, and they held up perfectly fine and looked great in photos. I tried to save them by hanging them upside down, but they dried kind of meh-looking, so I eventually just threw them away. No regrets anyway!

    I was planning on doing fresh flowers, but as I’m getting married in August outdoors, I don’t want to risk them looking terrible in photos. I also hate the way silk flowers look, so I compromised and bought this off of Etsy (it’s made of cold porcelain). It’s absolutely gorgeous and looks exactly like the photograph, and I love that I’ll have it forever!

    I just pictured a bee trying to pollinate a fresh flower in my hair, so I’d personally go with silk. 😛

    You could do fresh, just make sure the flowers are well hydrated before they are wired onto a headpiece or put into your hair. Also stay away from flowers like hydrangea or peonies that turn brown and wilt the second they’re out of water. Good hardy flowers like roses or tulips should be okay.

    dearyme :  Maybe, but a bouquet is something I could just drop and run away from…something worked into my hair, not so much.
