Flower Crowns to Fit Your Style
With roots way back to Ancient Greece and the times of Pagan worship, flower crowns have been worn by women to signify important ceremonies. Today our neighbors in Ukraine wear floral crowns for many of their celebrations, including weddings, and all over the world brides choose to wear headbands made of flowers.
When you select your flower crown, you can have your blossoms speak for you through the language of flowers, you can pick a scent you’ll never forget, and make a fashion statement using beautiful colors and design.
Let us show you 12 fabulous floral crowns and what they are made of from big bold petals to delicate ferns and florets.
What to turn some heads? Try using peach roses and white jasmine to make a stunning statement.
When it is time to go big, go all the way with a bright crown of red dahlias, orange orchids, and pink peonies.
Headed to the beach for your vows? Wear tropical colors found in fuschia orchids and red anthurium.
Consider white and blush roses with peonies for a perfect pastel vibe.
Or choose a classic ivy crown signifying marriage, fidelity, friendship, and affection.
Of course, flower crowns look right at home in garden weddings with pink, red, and white roses,
with a matching bouquet of sunny yellow and peach poppies,
or a simple design of bayleaf and baby’s breath, which symbolize wisdom and everlasting love, respectively.
Heading to the mountains or snowy climes? Then white is always perfect, with roses for innocence or campanula for showing signs of gratitude.
Or use blush tones of antique roses with woven lily of the valley.
From the brightest colors worn by all your bridesmaids,
to a simple band of ferns that speaks of magic, fascination, and sincerity.
There are blooms throughout the seasons that will bring beauty and meaning to your wedding.
Here are some floral crown dos and don’ts to be sure you love your look all day:
- Choose hardy blossoms like orchids, freesia, roses, eucalyptus, and bay leaves if you want your crown to look gorgeous for hours.
- When choosing more fragile flowers, have a second crown made to wear at your reception.
- Show off your personal style. Flower crowns don’t have to look bohemian, so work with your florist to make something that’s all about you.
- Attach your crown securely. Be sure there are clips in place to keep your flowers on your head and off your shoulders.
- Let your hairstylist know how big your crown is and whether it will be worn with flowers around your face or toward the back of your head, and show them a picture if possible.
