Floral crowns, also called floral hair wreaths or flower crowns, have been around since ancient times and their popularity has seen its ups and downs throughout the years. Their use in weddings slowed down for a while but we now are seeing brides using them again. Not only do floral crowns work well for brides but flower girls look adorable wearing them. And for a big impact, your bridesmaids can wear them, too!
Once considered mainly for Boho-style weddings, today we see floral crowns incorporated in to many wedding styles. They work particularly well for rustic, country chic, garden and other outdoor weddings. Often a veil just doesn’t seem to “fit” less formal outdoor weddings but the bride may still want to add an embellishment in her hair. A floral crown may be the perfect choice.
Floral crowns can be created with just about any type of flower. Of course the size and shape of the flower used will give the crown its unique look. You can use all greenery, all one color, or a colorful mix of flowers. And fresh, dried or silk flowers will work equally well. You may want to coordinate your floral crown with your wedding bouquet and/or wedding décor.
If you would like to try making one yourself, I previewed several how-to videos on You Tube and have chosen three below. I also have links to three websites that have instructions.
