It really depends on how long you’re expecting to have the flower in your hair and what type you’re thinking of. Some blooms handle heat better than others. I’d suggest talking to your florist to see what he/she thinks will and won’t work.

depending on how complicated your do is and what flower you want to use, maybe you have a fresh for the ceremony & pictures, then a fake for later on, or just take it out later on.

I’d think a fake flower would be lighter and easier to pin into place. Plus, it can be a keepsake when you’re done. There are a few fake flower accessories on Etsy.

I had the same question!   I’m getting orchids on barrettes through my florist, silk or fresh.   My hairdresser said that I should go for silk if possible, because it’s lighter and will stay in better.     But I don’t think there would be an issue with a real flower….just check which ones will or will not wilt.  I think the only other thing you might be concerned with is if you have a heavy veil that might ruin the flower by rubbing against it.

Fake!  There’s silk, which look really close to real these days!, and also a clay polymer which looks astonishingly real (look up decoclay.com online).  The clay ones are really lightweight, and if you got ambitous, you could DIY ’em for yourself and your ‘maids.  Kinda cute.

When I was in school, I used to do the flower in the hair thing; we had orchids in our yard, which are very hardy…but even those, by the end of the day (after 6-8 hours) were looking pretty droopy. People hugging you can snap or crease the petals. And y’know how they say you lose all your heat through your head?  It doesn’t help the poor little flowers.
