Are floral crowns a classic wedding element, or a trend that has managed to stick around? It’s hard to say. In Ancient China, brides traditionally wore orange blossom wreaths on their wedding day, and Elizabeth Taylor crowned herself with hyacinths before she said “I do” to fellow actor Richard Burton in 1964. Throughout the centuries, brides have worn flowers in their hair to symbolize youth, fertility, and the natural cycle of life.
Modern flower crowns are less about tradition and symbolism than they are about color-schemes and overall aesthetics. Floral wreaths work at any time of year, but with the vibrant Spring and Summer wedding seasons quickly approaching, we need even more inspiration to fuel our creativity here in the Bride & Blossom studio.
