13 Bridal Braided Updo Ideas With Flowers

Sweep your hair back in one of these chic updos.
by Andrea Fowler

If you’re looking to sweep up all your locks and tuck them away in a chic, totally trendy 'do, braids are where it’s at. A braided updo can be as formal or boho as you want, but in any case we always vote "yes" on the addition of flowers, from small blooms like baby’s breath to exotic orchids.

Flowers can be swapped in place of a traditional veil or styled in addition to a veil. Or, you could accessorize with a veil for the ceremony and switch things up with a flower crown for the reception. Get inspired by our 13 favorite looks.
