Forget tiaras and the traditional veil, this year is the year of floral bridal crowns. Until now, the beautiful accessory was most popular in vintage or bohemian weddings, but now traditional brides are choosing the floral headdress over other usual headpieces.
To complement her amazing custom-made Alberta Ferretti wedding dress, Peaches chose a simple and elegant wreath of daisies. Margherita, on the other hand, had her three bridesmaids, Tatiana Santo Domingo, Eugenie Niarchos and her sister Teresa, wear daisy headdresses for her gypsy-inspired nuptials, as did Kate’s 15 bridesmaids for the country affair.
Traditionally it was only the bride’s flower girls who wore the crowns, but now everyone has taken a like to them, including A-listers for their red carpet appearances. Even designers such as Dolce & Gabbana have included them onto their latest catwalk shows.
The wonderfully colourful garlands are suitable for all seasonal weddings, whether it’s a summer or winter one. All you need to do is make your crown with the flowers in season. You can even match the wreath to your wedding colour scheme!
But there is one thing I love the most about these romantic headdresses, the fact that they can be made from real flowers, as seen in the picture above, dried flowers or silk flowers!
Actresses Anne Hathaway and Kirsten Dunst have gone one step further. Newlywed Anne was spotted months back wearing a floral headpiece made of crystals whilst Kirsten went for a special designer Dolce & Gabbana floral headband.
So out of all these, what headdress do you like most? Would you wear one on your wedding day or opt for the traditional tiara and veil?
