Are you including butterflies in your wedding theme? Butterflies symbolize transformation. On your wedding day, you step into a new chapter of life — a life with your partner!

A Colorful Cluster

If you want to include butterflies in a subtle, elegant way, consider positioning a few gold or silver butterfly-shaped clips next to a low bun. As an alternative, you could use just one clip in a larger size. Match the tone of these clips to the other jewelry that you’ll be wearing. If your engagement ring, necklace, and earrings are all gold, you will want to wear gold-toned hair accessories.
Boho Bridal Wreath
Wear your hair down, and use a wreath of butterflies as a crown. This bohemian look would be perfect for you if you’re a free-spirited bride. In the picture above, the rusty orange color of the monarch butterfly wings goes perfectly with the warm fall color palette. If your color palette is made up of cooler colors, wear butterflies in blue, green, or purple. A wreath of blue wings could be the perfect ‘something blue‘ for you!
Simple and Subtle
Instead of a realistic looking butterfly, you could also go with clips that have a simple, streamlined design. Look for solid colors, and smooth curves instead of ruffled wings. You could even make your own, if you’re into DIY! Wear one or several, nestled among your locks. Since the design has a minimalist appearance, it goes well with a simple hairstyle instead of an intricate one.
