Bridal Inspiration: Floral Crowns

There are endless options for bridal headdresses and my favorite is the floral crown! It is a fun and fresh break from the traditional veil.

Floral Crown:  Meadow or Woodland?

I love the simplicity of the single floral for a fresh-from-the-meadow look. I would keep the make-up neutral and bring focus to the eyes with some false lashes to make them pop! On the other hand I love the dewy woodland look! It is almost like a bird’s nest with the vines and pops of fabric and feathers. I like the peachy cheek and soft pinks that are used in this image.

After you decide on the style of the crown you want you have to decide what you will do with your hair. I love the long and wavy locks with the style of the dress on the left. There is something about a modest long-sleeved dress.. when done right it looks soft and sexy. I think the pink under tones of image on the right is completely flattering for her skin tone. I like the clean yet effortless look that her hair has.

Floral Crown: Wear with a nude lip or a bold lip?

I think that last major decision would be to go with a complimentary bold lip or to keep it natural and let the colors of the flowers to take center stage. In most cases I am all for bold lips- corals, hot pinks, red… but I think with the bright crown I would stick with neutral colors and draw out colors from the skin tone and not from the arrangement.

How would you wear a floral crown? Any favorites?

I also wonder if you wore the flowers on your head if you could forgo the bouquet and carry something special instead…. a balloon, your favorite bible, and framed photo of a parent/grandparent who is deceased?

oh, the possibilities.

    I absolutely adore both the meadow and woodland looks. However, since I have to choose one.. I am going for the meadow look. There are several reasons why. One reason is balance, I am short and petite and so I feel the woodland look will be too ‘heavy’ of a look for me to carry off well. Also, my wedding gown is floral-ly and very soft and earthy, it has wildflowers on it and screams fairies or ‘meadow’ and so it is a natural fit, I like the sexy simplicity of using just one type of flower instead of a bunch of bold ones. Just my taste, I would use bold flowers to accent centerpieces or my cake instead… simple flowers let me beauty accent them.
