While we love a traditional veil, it’s safe to say we’re suckers for wedding-day flower crowns. It seems like brides everywhere can agree, too, as many are exchanging veils and jeweled headpieces for one of these blooming halos. Aside from being absolutely stunning, wedding 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.
To find a flower crown that's quintessentially you, consider two factors: your personal style and the climate of your wedding. If you're more of an ethereal, go-with-the-flow 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 wedding flower crown, featuring blooms 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 or a crown of blooms in deep burgundy hues and pretty plum shades, paired with cashmere wraps and fur muffs, will look oh-so chic. Just add a sprinkling of snow for all the whimsical winter vibes.
