Bridal Style: Flower Crowns

Author: Boho


Today I am talking flower crowns a bridal must have that is getting more and more popular! Flower crowns are a beautiful addition to any wedding outfit, and are suitable not only for the bride but for the bridesmaids and flower girls as well. They can be big, small, medium size, HUGE! they can be one colour or a mixture of colours. They can tie in with your wedding bouquet, or table decorations, or you can add in your own style with a twist…………the possibilities are endless.

With the move away from structured hair styles into a much more relaxed look, flower head crowns are perfect to achieve  dare I say it, that ‘Boho’ Look. Think long flowing ethereal gowns, light fabrics, silks, chiffon, lace, and you have the perfect look for a flower crown! If you are having  a natural  outdoor wedding then they really are perfect for you, or if you are having an indoor wedding but want to bring  a bit of nature indoors they really can soften any wedding look.

Most florists would be delighted to help you work out a design for your own flower crown to tie in with your existing flower order, team them with foliage, ribbon, feathers…the possibilities are endless. You can also buy them ready made from a variety of places, or why not even try and make one yourself?  They are also a fabulous way to tie your bridal party together, well if it’s good enough for Kate Moss…it’s good enough for you!

    I definitely fall into the ‘small and dainty’ category and cannot wait to dance around like a loon, barefoot and all, in my crown.

    How acceptable is it to dry it and then wear to my office do you think!?

    Ooooh such gorgeous inspirations on here! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
    For big statement flower garlands, you HAVE to use real fresh flowers… soooo luscious…

    We make our garlands from fine parchment paper roses which does mean you can keep (and wear) our garlands forever, but we tend to stick to ‘small and dainty’ because they suit the paper flowers best. I get severe florist-envy when I see crowns like these though! lol!

    If you are happy with a ‘dried’ look, then you can dry your garland at home, Laura. If you have an airing cupboard use that, or just a cardboard box with some silica gel sachets in it in a warm place (ie. a shelf near a radiator). It’s best to hang it upside down in the box or cupboard to help preserve the shape. If you want to preserve the colour and plumpness of the blooms too, then you will have to enlist a professional.

    Im definitely of the opinion that ‘less is more’ when it comes to floral bridal headwear and when done well the impact and effect is dramatic, both on guests and your future wedding photographs.
    Think subtle tiarra rather than enormous crown!

    It’s amazing how many possibilities there are with constructing a flower crown…and they’re all great! If I had to choose one style over the other, I think it be the first shot of the “Small and Dainty” crowns. The looseness of that one feels so natural and organic, almost as if the flowers are growing in the models hair. Great pics!
