Increasingly here on Maui we see the modern bride choosing a floral headpiece on her wedding day. Known in Hawai’i as the ‘haku lei’ it has been a long-standing tradition on the islands for choice of wedding adornment. Using a haku lei can replace a wedding veil or be used in combination with a veil. The sky is the limit for size, shape, and flower variety with your haku lei. Its a great option to add more color into an outdoor wedding, even a simple beach wedding. We teamed up with Bella Bloom Maui, our local florist to explore different looks with an orchid theme. Bonus: the headpieces smell amazing!! What better way for a bride to look and feel great on her wedding day than to choose her favorite flowers as a crown? Look for our feature of this project on the Pacific Weddings Love Notes Blog.
