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. And 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.
A Full-Bodied Statement Crown of Greenery and Orange Blooms
The vast color palette of this bride's show-stopping flower crown extends beyond the hues of the florals. With varying shades of greenery in the mix, this crown is full of life and excitement. We love the mesh of textures in the crown, dress, and shiny black waterfall curls.
Tiny Bits of Baby's Breath
A light dusting of delicate baby's breath is simple but absolutely stunning in a wedding updo. These tiny, white blooms look adorably soft and romantic by themselves, but also make great accents for larger arrangements. This reversed half-crown accentuates the updo in the back, without being overbearing in the front.
Ivory, Pale Greens, and Muted Berry Hues for Winter Weddings
White blooms mixed with greenery create the perfect Christmas flower crown. These berry and jewel-toned accents will warm up any chilly winter wedding and the tiny red and green botanicals lining muted sage leaves are a dream for a December bride.
Add some hints of crystal for an icy, frozen goddess aesthetic. Dusty, moody tones or crimsons and scarlets are also great for seasonal winter weddings.
Dusty Green Leaves Wound With Dried Lavender
This boho bride is carefree and spirited with her dried lavender flower crown woven with faded greenery. This gorgeous halo looks especially stunning with a mountainside as a backdrop. Lavender is also known for its powerful calming powers, so this crown could serve as a fashionable way to de-stress on your wedding day.
White Blossoms With Baby's Breath and Lush Greenery
White blooms give an ethereal finish to your bridal look and match just about any décor or venue. This bride framed her larger flowers with speckled baby's breath on a ring of neatly arranged leaves. This combination creates a laid-back, fun, and breezy vibe.
Statement Piece With Asymmetrically Arranged Flowers
How gorgeous is this lush flower crown full of colorful blooms? It makes for a flirty contrast to the bride's clean and simple wedding dress. The asymmetrical structure concentrates the majority of the height and drama to just one side, balancing out an otherwise overwhelming arrangement.
Tropical Arrangement of Bold and Bright Colors
This vibrant flower crown is stunning for a tropical destination wedding. Mixes of fuchsia, orange, and island greens make a fresh and vivid display. We love how the warm-hued blooms pick up the gold in that metallic dress and reflect this bride's radiant, glowing skin tone.
White Ranunculus Adorned in Spray Roses
Instead of the traditional veil, this bride wore a flower crown of white ranunculus, porcelina spray roses, and baby's breath at her backyard wedding in Virginia. The white and rose-hues wound around the head on a rope of fresh greenery. This look is as sweet as can be.
Fresh White Blooms in a Crown of Olive Branches
This bride accented her simple hairstyle with a posy of creamy white flowers and olive leaves for her rustic, Spanish countryside fête. The olive branches tied in other elements of their wedding décor, like their greenery-adorned minimalist stationery. The earthy look made for the ideal complement to the natural, pastoral landscape.
Oversized Pink Peony Crown
If you'd rather your crown take center stage, opt for bigger florals like peonies or zinnias. Take note of this brides placement: Wrapping the headpiece horizontally across her forehead (like a headband) balances out the height of her hair without adding extra inches. Use a hint of greenery to break up the colors.
Daisies With Pops of Lilac Buds
At this bride's beach wedding in Brazil, she completed her effortless look with a flower crown dotted with lilacs and daisies. Tiny, deep purple berries with speckled yellow petals and dusty rose blooms gave the crown a soft and feminine touch. Here's living proof that a beach wedding is not restricted to tropical décor.
Berries and Autumnal Tones for a Fall Wedding
For fall brides, add berries and mixed greenery to your crown. The golden hues with bright crimson berries prove fall botanicals don't have to be dried to evoke the quintessential feeling of Autumn. Add deep, rich greens to accent the more brightly colored elements.
A Colorful Blend of Herbs, Greens, and Blooms
Bright and beautiful, this bride chose a bold mix of botanicals. Marrying blooms of red-orange, deep maroon, pale pink, lilac, and white with herbs and greenery made a stunningly vivacious bridal flower crown. We love the subtle incorporation of succulents spread throughout.
A Wreath of Local Greenery and Fresh Garden Roses
Now, this is a regal headpiece. This bride rocked a wreath of garden roses and local greenery for her seaside nuptials in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. She kept the roses to a creamy ivory hue for the classic all-white wedding.
A Crown of Red Roses, Lilies, and Summer Greens
We can't stop obsessing over this mix of roses, lilies, and greenery. The white lilies set a gorgeous contrast with the darker tones of the roses and leafy greens. And we're loving how the reds and pinks look especially stunning with the warm tone of the bride's hair.
A Textured Mix of Orange and Fuchsia Hues
With shades of bright orange, plum, and pink, it's hard not to fall head over heels for this flower crown. We especially love how the textured florals add some extra dimension to the look. The small pops of greens are a totally unique take, and not your typical grasses or leaves.
Fresh Leaves With Minimal Florals
This bride's simple crown still manages to make a statement without completely overpowering her ensemble. White roses make a classic complement to the green of the leaves and go with any color palate. The placement of the roses keeps it interesting while creating a harmonious balance to the natural headpiece.
Delicate Blue Petals Pop Against Tiny Greens
This dainty crown starts off with a minimalist approach of tiny white buds and greenery in the front and then blossoms into a posy of vibrant blue delphinium at the back. The soft baby blue is made energetically eye-catching against the understated halo. Her outdoorsy Colorado nuptials made for the ideal setting to rock this organic, wildflower headpiece.
Pure White Florals With Peek-a-Boo Pink Blooms
This sweet flower crown of creamy white blossoms is so pure it's absolute perfection. The scant displays of pink give this bride an enticing air of sweetness. We love the contrast against the glossy, dark locks for her summer wedding in Greece.
Dusty Autumn Hues of Dahlias, Roses, Ranunculus, and Eucalyptus
In lieu of a full floral crown, bride Sarah nestled an assortment of dusty-hued roses and ranunculus into the half-up, half-down 'do for her autumnal vineyard wedding in Napa, California. Her petals of choice included dahlias, roses, ranunculus, and eucalyptus. The single bright pink rose adds a dose of energy to the bohemian arrangement of autumn-toned florals.
Fall Colors With Assorted Greenery and Textures
"I had [my bridesmaids] wear flower crowns instead of carrying bouquets, which made them look like autumn fairies," says bride Brooke. We have to agree: All of the ladies look every bit the enchanted storybook princess. The halos wound white florals with leaves in the midst of changing to fall colors–in proper autumn fairy fashion.
Yellow Blooms and Deep Green Leaves
This bride is happy as can be with sunny yellow for her florals and hot air balloon. Her halo of dainty greens and minuscule golden flowers look even more magical during golden hour. The way the crown sits upright atop her head adds a lively and youthful appearance to the ensemble.
