Timeless Bliss

If you’re getting married, be sure to wear flowers in your hair. OK, so maybe that’s a song about San Francisco, but Minnesota brides are channeling their inner flower child, too — on their wedding day.

Floral crowns worn with or without a veil are the wedding trend du jour, said Leah Schmidt, Bachman’s wedding and special events manager. “We are always tracking new styles and trends via magazines and events, and it was announced at the American Institute of Floral Design Symposium this year that floral crowns are really hot right now, after years of slowly trying to make a comeback.”

Brides, flower girls and bridesmaids typically wear these floral arrangements slanted slightly back, just off the crown of their heads. They can also be worn around a bride’s updo. There also are half-crown options, which allows for a fuller veil off the back and makes a bigger statement. Some crowns contain no flowers at all, but plenty of foliage.

“We’ve done pieces with wheat, evergreen and sea grass. We’ve done pieces with gilded succulents. And we’ve done full floral crowns which are heavy, dramatic and really showy,” said Jackie Reisenauer, owner of Munster Rose. “Basically, it’s whatever the client wants — or has seen on Pinterest.”

From flirty and romantic to bohemian and casual, here are a few crowns to florally accessorize your bridal style.
