Article contributed by hair & makeup consultant, Heather Fiatarone-Cohen, of I DO on-site hair and face

Many brides stand on tradition, and the wedding veil is not only traditional it is seen as the crowning glory to the wedding dress. The wedding veil signifies a special event and can often highlight an amazing updo! Tradition aside, We love a bride who throws off the veil and shows her face.

Many modern brides are taking ques from their bridal bouquets’. Having a matching flower, whether silk or real, can blend your updo into your wedding theme seamlessly. The more eclectic bride may opt for a pop of color by adding a brightly hued flower to her updo. Just remember, if you are using a real flower ask your wedding florist to wrap the stem with wire. This will add durability and flexibility when fastening it to your hair.
