While we love a traditional veil, it’s safe to say we’re suckers for a flower crown wedding look. Many brides are exchanging veils and jeweled headpieces for one of these blooming halos. Aside from being absolutely stunning, flower crowns are exceptionally versatile wedding hairstyles.

Throwing a summer wedding? A vibrant flower crown will give you that fresh, garden-party appearance or add an effortless bohemian vibe to your bridal style. Even your bridal party can get in on the floral fun, or you can crown a flower girl with a halo of baby's breath for an adorably angelic look. Floral wreaths might just be the ultimate wedding hairstyle accessory and there's one for every wedding theme. Yes, there are even flower crown options for winter weddings.

To find a flower crown that's quintessentially you, consider two factors: your personal style and the climate of your wedding.

Scroll on for wedding flower crown ideas that could be the perfect finishing touch to your wedding hairstyle.

If you'd rather your crown take center stage, opt for bigger florals like peonies or zinnias.

Use a hint of greenery to break up the colors.
