A bridal flower crown is the accessory for a summer wedding so we’ve compiled a list of handy hints and tips on the best way to wear this bohemian style.

Own it

Bright and bold bridal flower crowns are best for summer brides. They ooze confidence and if a bride has planned an energetic and fun day then this style will fit the theme perfectly.  Larger crowns are usually supplied with ribbon to secure in place and look best when paired with long wavy curls.

Simple does it

Don’t worry if a huge headdress isn’t for you, a simple flower crown using one or more blooms is the height of elegance. It also has the added of bonus of being easier to secure with hair pins. Thinner crowns are more versatile as brides who wear a simple crown look equally stunning rocking a sophisticated chignon or loose waves.

Fresh flowers

Here at Wedding Journal Online we can’t resist the smell of fresh flowers and there’s nothing more whimsical than a crown bursting with just picked blooms. However, be careful to consider the likely temperature of your wedding day and check with your florist the estimated shelf life of your favourite choices. Keep your flower crown refrigerated until the last minute to avoid wilting.

Dried Flowers

Dried flowers are an excellent choice for anyone worried about their gorgeous flower crown drooping in warm weather or their favourite blooms not being in season. They tend to be a more cost effective option and can be purchased well in advance of the big day. They have a rustic vibe which is best suited to an outdoor barn celebration.

Baby’s breath

Fake it till’ you make it
