Spotted on the runway, floral crowns are now popping up in celebrity weddings like Natalie Portman’s recent nuptials. Portman’s tea length bridal dress with flats and a rustic floral crown of white flowers were the epitome of simple, elegance.
Bloggers and online sites are quickly catching on to this trend with their own wedding flower crown inspiration. Camille Wynn from Storkie.com recently blogged about “Flower Crowns; Wedding Inspiration”.
Wynn finds, “no matter what you choose to do, flower crowns on your wedding day are always a good choice.” Wynn states floral crowns can be styled in many fashions form flowers all the way around or only along the front band, whether you DIY a floral crown or get assistance from a florist they are a great wedding accessory. “Even with summer weddings coming to an end, flower crowns can be worn year round.”
Wedding flower sprays are an excellent flower stem to create a simple, rustic floral crown. Weave stems around each other to make a circle, securing ends with green floral wire or tape. Strategically placed small floral blooms can hide where stems were joined. Wedding flower sprays like orchids, hydrangeas, daisies, small roses, baby’s breath and berry sprays are good stems for full floral crowns.
Another option for a DIY floral crown is to adhere wedding flower blooms to a neutral color headband. Silk wedding flowers can be hot glued with greenery to create a fabulous accessory to accent your bridal bouquet. Wedding flower stems like small roses, peonies, gerbera daisies and ranunculus would make beautiful hair accessories for your special day.
