Our Real Life bride Niamh matched her fresh flower crown to her bouquet, making maximum impact without being to OTT.

Choose dried flowers 

A sustainable and long-lasting alternative to fresh florals is to choose a ready-made floral accessory, like this one from Lisa Angel. The dried flowers are delicate and will work well on a half-up, half-down look.

Pick your favourite blooms 

Smaller blooms with lots of texture lend themselves more to a floral hairstyle, however, that shouldn’t stop you from trying to incorporate your favourite flowers into your big day blooms. Real life bride Allana chose a crown that was heavy on the roses, which lends her look a lovely laidback boho vibe.

 Add some sparkle

If you can’t choose between sparkles and florals, why not try both? Using dried and painted flowers alongside rhinestones, pearls and crystals, this headband will add a touch of glam to your big day look. It can also be used on the back of the hair to secure your veil.

Short hair looks blooming good 

Just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you can’t wear flowers in it! Amy, one of our real life brides, shows just how stylish a flower crown can look with a pixie do.

Sweet and simple

Don’t want anything over the top? You can elevate a simple ponytail by tucking a couple of small blooms into it. Alternatively, choose one of these dried flower pins from Lisa Angel and tuck behind the ear for a cute, summery vibe.

Small is beautiful 

Smaller blooms, like gypsophila or heather, make for a really delicate flower crown, as seen on our gorgeous real life bride Neasa. It was the perfect match for her woodland wedding.
