Hair flowers what to think about, an interview with Melody Flowers

Flowers and weddings go hand in hand, and many brides are asking for hair flowers to go with their bridal hairstyle. I have always thought that incorporating flowers in the hairstyle looks really pretty. They can help give the style a lift and and add an air of romance.



To help you to know what to consider when choosing flowers for your bridal hairstyle, I thought I’ll ask the very talented florist Viktoria Falen who is a partner at Melody Flowers in Stockholm.

Are you seeing an increase in brides who would like to have flowers in their hair for their wedding?

Yes, absolutely! More and more brides are asking for flowers in their hair as an extra detail and to complete the look at the wedding. I think we find inspiration from other countries where flowers in the hair is more usual than unusual. Its a trend we see on social media and different wedding magazines and we love it!

Can the flower be made to fit in the hairstyle?

Of course! We look at the hairstyle and consult with the hairstylist about what will look best , taking into consideration style, colour, make-up and hair type. I work with the look as a whole and will adjust the flowers there after. The flowers should both suit you individually and add an extra detail to the bridal look.



Which flowers would you recommend / don’t recommend to wear in your hair for a wedding?

Practically all flowers can be used depending on your style and the rest of the look. What is most important to me is a personal style that is connected all through the wedding. It could be a colour or a specific flower. If you want small flowers I recommend Miniature roses, Baby’s breath or peonies. To make them last throughout the day a nice idea could be to make flower jewellery such as a tiara, a crown or perhaps a hair comb. We can make the flowers to fit your style.

Why do you think a bride should choose real flowers in their hair instead of fake flowers?

Today we are aiming for a look that reflects that extra something, we want to stand out and at the same time be fashionable. The feeling we want right now is a summer field of blooming flowers. Its natural and beautiful and gives that special detail many are looking for. I think real flowers gives a more natural and alive impression, where fake flowers don’t give the same feeling or impression.


I hope this gave you some inspiration and tips, please let us know if you have any questions or would like to book a consultation.

Best wedding regards,

One of the weddings from summer 2014 at beautiful Häringe Slott, Stockholm

Last weekend’s wedding was our last booked wedding of the season for 2014 in Stockholm. I’m so grateful for all the lovely brides I had the pleasure to work with this year so i thought I would share a few of them from this year with you in my upcoming blogposts.

The first wedding I would like to share with you is Clara and Joakims wedding at Häringe Slott just South of Stockholm.

I met Clara through my collaborating wedding planner Wedding In Sweden. Clara and I first met for a trial run to decide which hair and makeup style she wanted to go for on her wedding day. She had beforehand sent me a few images of hairstyles that she liked and also a photo of her dress so that everything would come together beautifully. Clara told me she loved braids and that she wanted to incorporate that into the hairstyle somehow and also that she wanted to to have all her hair up.

We tried some different hairstyle types and finally decided on a low bun with a french braid lying on top of the bun. As for makeup Clara wanted a nice natural makeup with the focus on her eyes. I used the shade Vex from Mac as a lid colour (my favourite for brides!) and different shades from the palette Butt naked eyes by Nyx. I also did hair and makeup for Claras lovely bridesmaid and hair for her gorgeous daughter both of them also got braids incorporated into their hairstyles to match Clara. It was a lovely happy wedding day and everything went really well, to read Clara’s comment about my work, please go to the testimonial page. The photographer at the wedding was Daniel Gual, below are a few of his photos from Clara’s wedding day. To see more of Daniel Gual’s work please click here.
