Medieval Maid Marian Style Wedding Hair Accessories

Written by    Last updated: August 13, 2016

When you have found your Robin Hood, dress up as his Maid Marian with these rustic bohemian medieval style wedding hair accessories of crystals and pearls. And don’t miss the homemade floral crown tutorial.

Like the beautiful Maid Marian of old English folklore, wearing your hair down on your wedding day, with just a natural wave, curl or loose braid gives a soft and feminine look. To dress it up for your big day, add sparkling decorative hair accessories to turn tousled hair into a definite style, catching the light and adding beauty with a simple clip, ornate headdress or simple flowers in your hair.

Medieval Wedding Style

Inspired by nature, many of the gorgeous hair accessories here feature floral or leaf designs that are very much in keeping with a medieval look. Festival style weddings are fun and informal, and rocking a more casual look with long hair worn down can make you feel more relaxed than being all dressed up in stiff, corseted formal wear with a heavily sprayed ‘up do’ and regal tiara.

Wedding Hair Styles

There are plenty of Wedding Styles for Long Hair that include all sorts of wedding hair accessories, and they’re not just for brides with long hair. Beautiful brides with short hair look gorgeous with decorative headdresses or hair accessories, from Alice bands to sparkling hair clips and especially hair jewellery that is worn draped across the forehead. 

Shoulder length hair can be swept back into a small bun at the nape of the neck, along with a hair piece and sponge to give the illusion of longer hair that has been put up. Wedding hair accessories transform a simple everyday hair do into a style for a special occasion.

Floral Wedding Hair Accessories

Choose to wear flowers in your hair or a decorative wedding hair accessory, or create your own unique bridal headdress with a combination of the two. A floral hair crown is one way to create a headdress from flowers. Sparkling hair accessories can be added to enhance the look or the flowers or accessories can be worn alone. Medieval style wedding hair is truly timeless and for that reason it is ideal for rustic and bohemian brides, or anyone planning a wedding in a castle or historic wedding venue.

Check out the following floral wedding hair accessory tutorial to create your own half floral crown.

And the best thing about buying gorgeous bridal hair accessories is you get to wear them again and again, at future special occasions, on your first wedding anniversary or even at a festival!
