Bridal Bun Hairstyles With Flowers

The Rose Holder
The beauty and softness of this flower is always a romantic addition. A simple bun with the roses semi-circling it would add just the right amount of fanciness to the bridal beauty. If your outfit is subtle coloured, go for bold coloured roses and vice-versa. Although, white roses will work well all colours!
The Statement Bun
The trend got hotter since Anushka Sharma chose this OTT bun for her wedding. Preferably go for monochromatic flowers for this floral extravaganza. A sheer dupatta with the partial visibility of the flowers looks stunning.
