Flower crowns started to gain a lot of popularity in Austin a couple of years ago – and ever since then, they have been permanently in the spotlight, especially for brides and bridesmaids.

What are some of the crucial tips all brides should know when choosing their flower crowns? We have gathered some tips for you – so if you want to look perfect, be sure to read on and find out more.

  • Make sure you choose the right flowers. And this doesn’t just refer to “choosing the flowers that go best with your wedding color scheme”, but also to the flowers that work best for the climate you’re in. Some types of blooms whither sooner than others, and you need to make sure you pick those that will stay fresh the longest. Also, do make sure you ask your florist how to preserve the flowers throughout the wedding day.
  • Be sure the flower crown is placed right. Test the way you look with a flower crown on your head and be sure your hairstylist knows how to incorporate that into your chosen wedding style. Even the slightest difference in placement can alter the final results, so it’s really important that you do this as many times as needed to be sure you get it right.
  • Make sure your flower crown works with the rest of the wedding. First of all, flower crowns are not suitable for any type of wedding. For instance, they might not work in an ultra-elegant, ultra-luxurious ballroom setting (they do work sometimes, but it all depends on the rest of the décor and the exact wedding style the bride has chosen). Furthermore, you need to make sure you create some sort of balance with your flower crown. For instance, if your wedding color scheme is very bright, you might want to avoid a bright flower crown, as that will just make everything feel like “too much”. Choose a flower crown style and colors that complement the Big Day in a beautiful, well-balanced way.
