The do's and do not's of rocking a flower crown

Once upon a traditional wedding, brides opted to dress their hair with conventional veils, headbands and hair-combs. Now, with a slew of celebrity brides donning flowers in their hair – thank you Miss Moss and Miss Knightley– the floral crown is back. And we couldn’t be more in love. From silk posies and delicate daisy chains to towering floral statements, there are displays to suit every style and taste. We have your guide to nailing the art of floral arrangement – and there’s nary a finishing school in sight.

The crown low-down

A flower crown immediately adds a stylish splash of femininity to any bridal ensemble, be it beach brides with baby breath or clusters of white garden roses for sophisticated dos. An innovative alternative to a veil, there are a handful of styles to choose from, including headbands, garlands, petite and half-halos, and eye-catching adornments inspired by Frida Kahlo.

Sitting pretty

Think of your flower crown like any other accessory: it has to complement your gown, hair, makeup and look, without competing for attention. Brides donning bold or bright garlands should treat it as a single, statement piece. Keep your hair and makeup low-key, avoiding fussy earrings and necklaces. We love gently tousled waves or a loose fishtail braid. For brides with dainty chains, there is more creative room with accessories and jewellery, however if it’s a whimsical nymph-like look you seek, it’s best to keep everything understated and simple. 

Blooms for bridesmaids

Having trouble only sticking to one floral crown? We understand, and we also have a solution: replace your bridesmaids’ traditional bouquets with impossibly feminine floral headpieces. Dressing your bridal party in similar arrangements will complement your bridal style and create a fluid, cohesive look. Or, make your littlest attendants even cuter with chains and headbands for your flower girls.
