Head Over Heels For: Flower Crowns

From the sweet wedding we shared this morning to the bridal shoot below that I styled two years ago (where my main inspiration was a pretty flower crown with anemones + peonies), it’s clear that I’m still pretty head over heels for flower crowns! I realized I haven’t done a fun round up of some of my favorite looks, so I thought it would be helpful inspiration for you lovelies  planning right now. :) I just love that they can be made from real flowers, dried flowers or silk flowers. They can look boho chic or glam or whimsical. Some of my favorite looks are below showing all the different ways this fun trend can go! (top photo from here)

All the photos above are from previous features on Green Wedding Shoes. The glam + gold crown is from this feature with headpiece by Jannie Baltzar, the dried flower crown is from this real wedding, the boho bridesmaids are from this wedding, the fern + flower crown is from this woodsy shoot and the bottom two photos are from this inspirational shoot.

Ben Sasso recently sent over the photos below. Love the look of real flowers! These were done by The Conservatorie. If you are interested in real flowers for your wedding day, check with your florists to see if they can create something beautiful for you! So gorgeous!

Just loved all the little flower girls with their crowns from Kate Moss’ wedding photographed by Mario Testino.

So, where can you get this look? Well, if you are looking for a crown of real flowers, you can either DIY it yourself or I recommend having your florist create it since it can be a bit tricky depending which type of flowers you are using. And you want to make sure your flowers are alive and pretty when you walk down the aisle!

Another option is to buy (or DIY since we’ll be sharing how later today!) your flower crown. There are so many talented designers out there with their own spin on the trend using either fabric, silk or dried flowers. Some of my faves I recommend checking out for this trend include (starting at the top right): Twigs & HoneyWhichgooseMignonne HandmadeLo BohemeRucheTessa KimThe HoneycombUntamed Petals
