Forget the diamonds and pearls. You can keep your tulle and lace… because brides everywhere are flocking to flowers when it comes to finishing their looks, and the result is nothing short of stunning.
Breathtaking baby’s breath. Powerful peonies. Radiant roses. Delicate daisies. Lovely lilies and greens of grandeur all come together in one of this spring’s hottest trends: Flower Crowns!
Their popularity can really only be defined by their versatility. Sure, it’s easy to picture your happily clad, hippie friend or a Boho-chic beauty when you think of these blossoming toppers, but just below the surface of the obvious, there’s a whole new audience delightfully delving into this Mother Nature inspired trend.
Because the crowns can be anything from avant garde and over-the-top to softly serene and ethereal, they really are something every bride can adjust to her particular taste. Not to mention, they can make for an incredibly easy and fun DIY wedding project! Check out below and see what I mean :)

After the ceremony is complete, many brides opt to let their hair down… literally. The “I do’s” are done and the celebration can begin, which is why so many ”Mrs.”es opt to alter their overall look before entering the reception arena.
Perhaps they bustle their dress. Or maybe they put on their dancin’ shoes. I’ve even seen some brides pull an Oscar worthy performance and change wardrobes altogether – ultimate diva move, if you ask me :) But regardless of what is (or isn’t) in your bridal budget, a great number of brides will show up to their reception looking slightly different than they did just minutes before, even if their only change is that “new wife glow.”
More often than not, however, a great number of brides will take off their veil and replace it with something a little more maintainable, and one accessory that deserves some serious snaps are vintage hair clips. These tiny treasures had me doing a double take when I saw them highlighted at a local bridal fair. Not only did they look absolutely stunning, but they truly have a luster, fit with old world charm and timeless twinkle.
From simple and chic to bold and daring, these era inspired gems come in a wide array of designs, making it easy to fit every bride’s style, taste and look. Feel free to get inspired by online stores such as HairBoutique.com or SmartBrideOnline.com. And if inspiration strikes you and you find yourself to be a bit of a crafter, take these ideas to your local crafts store and make one of your own! It’s a perfect DIY, money saving project!
