Flowers in her Hair

So a couple of weeks ago I featured a roundup of beautiful birdcage veils, but if your style is more bohemian than retro, I have a bridal accessory trend that’s just for you. Brides with flowers in their hair are nothing new (although they’ve gained a lot of popularity as an alternative to veils in the last couple of years), but recently I have been seeing a bloom of brides wearing full-on floral crowns. And you guys, I LOVE them! Once the preserve of ’80s flowergirls, the new wave of flower wreaths are soft and sweet but with a bold, high fashion edge. They’re not subtle, but boy are they beautiful. Check out these lovelies…

The great thing is that you can combine the crowns with short or long hair, which makes this one of the most wearable trends (although it works best with soft curls, whatever the length). You can use fresh or fake blooms, and customise your wreath to suit your colours and bouquet. You can choose to keep it on all day, or just for your ceremony or photos. You can also choose how big you want to go, depending on the blossoms you choose. It’s so flexible. And you can also choose to use the look for one or all of your bridesmaids or flower girls, although I really like the statement it makes on a bride.
