10 Things We Love About... Wedding Hair Garlands

Floral hair garlands and crowns are one of this year’s hottest wedding trends. Brides around the globe are clamoring to get their hands on everything from simple bohemian halos to show-stopping headpieces. 

A floral garland can give a fairytale feel to a wedding, and can look great as an alternative to a bouquet for a bride who wants to keep her hands free. In terms of blooms, anything solid works really well – think roses, begonias, camellias or, for something a little more delicate, fillipendulas (dogwort), gardenias or Jacob’s ladder. Think about balance, too; the more greenery, the more ethereal your garland, while full, coloured blooms are more romantic.

We have chosen our 10 favorite things about the floral hair garlands and crowns.

You Can Simplify Your Hairstyle 

Floral crowns look amazing with simple loose waves or a messy bun. Of course, it depends on your hair and the style of floral crown that you go for but, in general, less is more. Choose your crown then talk to your hairstylist to come up with a hair strategy. 

You Can Forget About the Massive Bouquet

For a more modern look, ditch the traditional bouquet. If you want a more elaborate floral crown, go with very simple arrangement or no bouquet at all. It will give you a unique look when you walk down the aisle and allow you to walk hand in hand with your dad or future husband. 

You Can Do It Yourself 

If you love do-it-yourself projects, this is for you! It is definitely important to do a trial run before the big day to hone your skills though. There a tons of tutorials out there for every style so go crazy with it. The worse case is that you will end up with a few less than perfect floral crowns to wear to pre-wedding events or just on fun nights out. 


You Can Keep Your Accessories Simple

A floral crown is definitely a statement piece. It can stand on its own so you don’t need to worry about accessorizing with earrings or a necklace. You can go simple and chic with just a floral crown and your gorgeous new ring. 

You Can Suit Your Style 

Sure, veils do come in a pretty wide range but there is something about the vast range of flowers that really allows you to cater them to your exact taste and wedding theme. Find your inspiration and create something that is uniquely you. 

Keep It As A Memento

Floral crowns make a gorgeous keepsake.  If you choose real flowers you can dry them out and hang them up for years to come as a memento of your special day.

The Bridal party can wear them 

Have each person in your bridal party design their own to create a distinct look for each person. It’s a great way to have a uniform style of dresses but still leave some room for personal style. 


You Can Lose the veil

If you want a more modern look, ditch the veil and show your beautiful face! Floral veils are easy to secure so you won’t have to worry about having a veil hanging down around you or flapping in the wind.

You Can Wear Your Hair Up or Down 

Don’t be limited by a veil or having to change your hairstyle for the reception. A small crown will look fantastic with your hair down, while an updo can be perfectly complimented by a more elaborate arrangement. 

When else would you wear one?!

It’s your big day and you deserve a crown! If you aren’t the glittery rhinestone type, you have found the perfect tiara alternative in the form of a floral crown.
