Flower crowns have long been the domain of the flower girls. Now, however, in one of the fastest growing trends we’ve seen, brides, bridesmaids and flower girls are donning them for weddings.
Vintage, whimsical and bohemian inspired brides are all turning to the floral headdress, a flower wreath headband, or flower crown as a rustic and, in some instances, DIY alternative to the traditional veil or headpiece. What was once confined to the heads of a 1980’s bride, in all her frilly and puffy glory, is gracing the heads of many of the most chic and stylish brides.
Flower crowns are now topping the list of must-have accessories for women. Whether you’re planning a marriage ceremony, prom, graduation day or birthday party, hair accessories will glam up every event. If you haven’t yet used hair accessories, then it’s time to look at the variety available – from clips and pins to bows and ribbons. Headbands are yet a great way to show off your own personality and style.
Adding a flower hair accessory to your headband is an inexpensive way to create a whole new look for your wardrobe. You could wear the flowers on the back of your head instead of the top – that way, they don’t totally dominate your entire outfit.
Many floral designers use ivory ribbon tied on each end of the flower crown, so that you can tie it around your head or under your hair and adjust the fit easily, making it more of a headband or a halo crown, depending on your preference.
