I’ve done this before (for prom.. so awhile ago)


 If you’re careful get a small bobby pin and have someone do it for you do you absolutey can not see the bobby pin.

Have the florist wrap the stem with florist tape so you have more to work with. Have your stylist put a small rubberband at the base of your hair in the area where you want to place the flower. This can be hidden in your hairstyle, then when your ready to pin the flower, you have something to secure it to.. as a gardenia is a bigger flower and you don’t want it sliding out. Be sure to criss cross the pins under the little hidden rubberband. Also try not to touch the actual petals of the flower as they bruise really easily and turn brown. Hope that helps.

It’ll stay if pinned correctly but it is a delicate flower.

i wore two one my wedding day.  don’t touch the petals.  they wilt and brown because of the oils on your skin. 

your florist should wrap the stem in floral tape like a boutineer.  secure with bobby pins.  make your stylist aware that your adding flowers to your hair so that the style accomodates the flowers.

also, they are scented so make sure that your or your groom are not allergic.
