Dress up your wedding hairstyle or find a pretty alternative to a traditional headpiece with a fresh or fabric flower crown.
We'll always love a flower crown. It's one of the prettiest, easiest accessories to wear with your wedding dress, since it can stand alone as the sole accessory. It seems like you, our dear readers, can't get enough of them either, because we've seen so many gorgeous brides wearing them. And this is another reason flower crowns are so perfect for you: the possibilities are endless. Once reserved for bohemian brides, there's now one for everyone.
To find one that's quintessentially you, consider two factors: your personal style and the climate of your wedding. If you're more of an ethereal, Marchesa type of bride getting married in the spring, try a wreath of tiny white flowers, maybe intertwined with small pearls — so subtle and delicate.
Those getting married in a tropical climate might want to consider a punchy crown; one in an array of bright, bold colors. (Then, tie it all together with a lipstick color that matches one of the flowers in your crown — perhaps a pop of red or pink.)
Even winter brides can wear flower crowns: a wreath with acorns and greenery paired with cashmere wraps and fur muffs will look so chic. (A sprinkling of snow on your head also adds the perfect touch — check out slide four if you don't believe us.)
And one last thing: you don't have to choose between a flower crown and a veil. They work so beautifully together! Try our real bride's look in slide two and secure your veil into the back of the flower crown. Not only will it give your veil extra staying power, but will help it ever-so-softly breeze down the aisle.
