The flower crown has made its way from music festivals to wedding ceremonies. Once reserved for Bohemian brides, it is now an accessory that everyone can wear. Even virtually—thanks to Snapchat. The first thing to consider when selecting the perfect crown is climate.
Becky Cardenas of The Wilding Collective recommends choosing flowers that coordinate with the season of the wedding.
“For the fall, the crown should incorporate flowers that won’t wither away such as ranunculus, seeded eucalyptus and seasonal berries,” she says. “My favorite spring flower is the blushing bride protea. It lasts long and is really pretty.”
Aside from seasonal flowers, there are some that can be incorporated no matter the time of year. “I like to use greenery that is available year-round, such as eucalyptus and bay leaf.”
