Flower crowns are back in a big way.  They started with Boho style, but these days even a traditional bride can look amazing in a floral crown. You just have to choose the right flowers…and the right designer.

Queen Victoria may have started the fashion by wearing a wreath of orange blossoms—a symbol of fertility—under her veil instead of a jeweled tiara. I guess if you could wear the Crown Jewels whenever you liked, choosing flowers to wear instead must seem like a daring choice. Considering she had nine children, the fertility symbol worked well!

Floral crowns were back in the 80s and 90s; we all remember the hapless Duck Face from Four Weddings and a Funeral also wearing a crown of orange blossoms:

Floral crowns went out of fashion for a while, but came back with the rise of Boho style. It’s easy to see how any bride might be inspired by a beautiful Boho bride with soft braids or loose waves crowned by flowers.

You can choose a simple band of white flowers, you can add greenery, or you can choose an explosion of color and blooms. It all depends on your personal style and your choice of wedding.

A floral crown doesn’t mean you can’t wear a veil, as this beautiful Boho bride shows:

If you don’t really like the “crown” part, you can wear flowers in your hair in any way your stylist can dream up.
