The Fiery Blossom
Take it up a notch or two! Wear your flowers instead of carrying it on your head or in your hair. Go for the bold look and match it with a hair piece as well. However, if you want the focus to be on the flowers on your dress, go for an updo to have a neater style and so the guests’ eye will shift to your striking arm candy.
