The 15 Best Flower Crown Ideas for Weddings
Self

Call me a hippie, or call me a Millennial, but I absolutely love the idea of incorporating a flower crown into a bridal outfit. A wedding flower crown is elegant, simple, and, more often than not, way more affordable than an old-school bridal veil. They also can be made by your local florist or yourself, if you’re crafty. 

As a fan of flower crowns and a fan of craft ideas, I had to put together a list of flower crowns I found on Instagram. Here are some inspirational wedding ideas that will make you want to get floral at your bridal bash!

1. Hippie beauty

Roses are the more traditional wedding flower, and it’s true, they definitely are romantic. Daisies, though, can be just as romantic and glamorous. They’re also more affordable, and work well with both rustic and bohemian weddings. 

This flower crown really works with anyone who views themselves as a hippie, a country girl, or just a fan of the simple things in life. In a world where we’re always pressured to glam up, isn’t it nice to have a flower crown that stays simple yet beautiful?

2. Something blue (and violet)

Traditional superstition says you need “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” Wearing this flower crown to your wedding definitely will put a check mark next to the “something blue” box!

The purple and blue flowers look absolutely breathtaking on this crown, and work amazingly well as a focal point for any bridal outfit. With such impressively bright colors, it’s safe to say that you will always get compliments once people see the wedding photos you take!

3. Laurel wreaths

Did you know that wearing a laurel crown used to be a sign of victory and success? It’s a tradition that came from the times of ancient Greece. Laurel wreaths are still a great wedding option, considering that you’re celebrating the accomplishment of starting a life with the one you love. 

Sometimes, giant flowers are not the way to go. Sometimes, you want something a little less flashy. For brides that are looking for a subtle, simple flower crown, a look similar to this one is a perfect pick.

4. Woven flowers

Another great way to wear a flower crown that isn’t too over the top is to have a crown that weaves smaller flowers close to your hairline. This bridal flower crown, for example, uses small accents of baby’s breath to give a rustic yet elegant look. 

Brides that want to wear all white should definitely consider using baby’s breath or Queen Anne’s Lace in their flower crowns. Both can be woven in a similar fashion, and will add a dash of classy floral fun to your ensemble.

5. Roses

Roses are the de facto flower tied to romance. Victorians actually used gifts of flowers to communicate messages, and the meanings behind roses still remain widely known today. All roses look beautiful in wedding crowns, but if you want to go Victorian, you might want to keep an eye on the color. 

Quite a few rose hues work with a matrimonial message. Red roses stand for passionate love, and white for pure love. Pink roses are seen as a symbol of femininity and refinement. Gold roses were typically only used for celebrations. You may want to avoid yellow roses, though, since those meant you only see someone as a friend.

6. Pastel wildflowers

Pastel hues always look tasteful at a wedding, especially when they are a part of the bride’s outfit. So, it only seems natural that many brides-to-be choose to put together pastel flower crowns for their day in the spotlight. 

This cool flower crown has a very free-spirited, bohemian vibe to it thanks to its selection of wildflowers. It almost looks like it was freshly picked out of a nearby field, doesn’t it?

7. Winter pine cones

Flower crowns are cool and all, but if you have a winter wedding, it can be difficult to find flowers that look good. Thankfully, Mother Nature makes beautiful things every season of the year, even in winter. 

This crown of pine cones is simple and remarkably easy to make. As long as you have glue, silver paint, some evergreens nearby, and a headband, you’re good to go. It’s so pretty, even Jack Frost’s heart would melt looking at it.

8. Floral starburst

There’s something really awesome about having a floral crown that literally radiates around your face. It creates a natural frame that will make your photographs pop, and veers away from the typical bridal look in a sophisticated yet imaginative way. 

This artsy way to reuse a summer bouquet turned out amazingly well. The way the flower crown highlights the model’s face would make most stylists turn green with envy.

9. Lush bouquet

Flower crowns don’t have to be petite if you don’t want them to be. With some outfits, having a larger flower crown just looks better and adds the right touch. When you go big with your crown, you better have a good idea of what you want it to look like.

This arrangement is an amazing example of an autumn-appropriate arrangement that adds some fiery flair to your hair. Black-eyed Susans, tiger lilies, and other golden petals really add some pop to this look, don’t you think?

10. Island beauty

It’s really easy to underestimate the beauty of island greenery and simple ferns, which is why this flower crown is so strikingly unique. The rich hues of an emerald fern add a pop of color without resorting to typical flower arrangements, while the shape of the leaves give a very strong island vibe.

Simple fern crowns are an affordable way to add island glamour to your wedding. When paired with a beachy outfit, this look will make jaws drop.

11. Fairytales

When you’re getting married, you’re headed towards your own “happily ever after.” Brides always love to talk about their ideal fairytale wedding, too. So, why not put together a crown that reflects that ethereal, dreamlike vibe?

You don’t have to include the elf ears to make this crown’s look work. It’s perfectly pagan, rustically refined, and a serious work of art. You can be anything you want to be on your wedding day, so why not be a happily married mythical creature?

12. Underwater fanta-sea

Flowers work beautifully with other natural elements, especially when it comes to seashells and crystals. If you’re planning an oceanic wedding with nautical themes, you might as well get a flower crown that reflects the theme.

You don’t have to have a full ring of flowers to have a flower crown. This cute mini-crown sits right above the bride’s updo, giving a beautiful accent that doesn’t ever look heavy-handed. A little splash of flower power is all you need in most cases. 

The blue roses add a nice touch to any bridal outfit, while the white helps pull it all together. Even if you’re not walking down the aisle, this will be one cute accessory to have.

14. A literal crown of flowers

Most flower crowns are more like flower headbands; they don’t have pointy peaks like a typical crown does. This one is a little bit different than most, and really brings out the “crown” part of your floral crown. 

The little flower buds and stems are carefully sculpted and placed onto a circular tiara, giving it a royally ethereal pop of style.

15. Golden daisy chain

There’s no rule saying that you need to stick to real, organic flowers for a bridal crown. If you are worried about wilting or dealing with petals falling out of place, keeping it simple with a flower-themed headband is the best way to foolproof your wedding look. 

A simple daisy chain design and a splash of gold is all this crown needed to look great. Brides that want a very low-key crown that still adds a little twist on traditionalism will love this look, as will brides that want to keep things low-maintenance

(Etsy, $85.07)

16. Fabulously fruity

Dried fruit slices can add a deliciously cute touch to an otherwise run-of-the-mill floral crown. Blood oranges, dried apples, faux berries, and even dried pumpkins can all be used to add accents to a standard crown. 

This trend is a great pick for both summer and autumn weddings, and can be done up a bunch of different ways. The arrangement might not be edible, but it will definitely be one of the most tasteful twists on a fall flower crown you can get. 

(Etsy, $82.50)

17. Pretty in pink

Pink is the epitome of girliness, and it’s also a wonderful color to add to your wedding attire. Pink flowers are known to represent feminine style, innocence, and the kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. It’s a girly color that works well with a girly bride. 

Pink flower crowns work for every season, simply because they work with every bridal outfit. Your inner Barbie will love having this cute accessory as you walk down the aisle, as will your photographer. After all, everyone looks great in pink!
