Flower crowns are all the rage in decorative headpieces, allowing a creative bride to imbue her wedding with a boho fairy vibe. These flower crowns have roots in mythology and art and can be traced back to ancient Greece, where people wore them to celebrate the gods. European women also wore flower crowns as they celebrated spring by dancing around a maypole on May Day. Of course, flower crowns made a major comeback during the '60s and '70s, when hippies ushered them in as a symbol of peace, love and closeness to nature.
Bridesmaids, flower girls and brides can all accessorize themselves with floral crowns for a romantic wedding filled with blooms. Any hairstyle will accommodate a flower crown, whether it's sitting atop cascading tresses, encircling a high, wavy ponytail or wrapped around an elegant bun. A bride might choose pale pastel flowers for a spring wedding, deeper tones for a winter wedding or white and cream for any time of year. Planning a Day of the Dead theme? Try a flower crown in a riot of colors. Regardless, most brides won't want to part with their flower crowns after the big day, and they don't have to: These crowns, available at favorite retailers including BHLDN, David's Bridal, Walmart, H&M and even Amazon, can do double duty as a festival accessory. Watch out, Coachella!
