Modern Looks for Floral Hairpieces

No longer are 'hair flowers' limited to the traditional perfectly round floral crown or a few flowers pinned into a bride's updo. In recent years floral designers have begun dreaming up fresh alternatives with larger blooms, unexpected form and more volume. The Chapel Designers are on the forefront of the movement, constantly pushing the envelope with innovative designs.
