The springtime bride is all about fresh looks and new beginnings. From baby’s breath to whimsical feathers to beaded bands, Violet Furxhi of Salon Mario Russo shares the most fashionable bridal headpieces for warm weather nuptials and styles them with the best gown silhouettes.

Ornate Headdresses

Delicate yet ornate headpieces are perfect for the bohemian bride who wants to add a little sparkle to her tousled tresses. This is a definite statement maker, so you’ll want to make sure there’s balance between the accessory and your gown. A simple, flowy gown or simple structured gown will work well with a beaded headdress and ensure that all the attention is on you and not just your accessories.

Floral Appliqués

A twist on a hair comb or clip, appliqués add interest to a bridal updo, such as a low bun or chignon. For the glamorous bride, a beaded appliqué is best, while a more traditional bride might want just a piece of lace for her wedding day look. Depending on how your stylist incorporates them into your hair, they can work well with a gorgeous ball gown, mermaid-style dress, or boho-chic gown.

Feathery Fascinators

An updated take on a 1930s staple, feathered fascinators are perfect for the vintage bride who wants to forgo the veil and jazz up a simple updo. Also adding a fascinator for the reception is a perfect way to switch up your look for dinner and dancing. They’re playful yet classic, vintage yet glamorous—the best of all worlds. They can be the perfect complement to a ball gown, vintage-inspired gown, or mermaid-style gown.

Scattered Flowers

A plethora of baby’s breath or small daisies scattered throughout the hair gives an updo or loose waves an elegant feel. We love when the florals create a waterfall look on loose waves. It instantly puts a fresh and inhibited spin on your style. Depending on the flower and its placement, this effortlessly refreshing approach to bridal hair can work well with many different dresses. Scattered flowers throughout an updo are a chic way to accentuate a ball gown or heavily beaded wedding dress, while cascading flowers placed in loose waves feel more ethereal and look beautiful with flowing chiffon, simple silk, or a vintage-style lightly beaded gown.
