The wedding table runner has traditionally been a must-have décor item for dressing up a table, whether it's used to cover the midsection of a bare table or added atop a tablecloth to create a rich tableau. In earlier centuries, layering such items was reserved for the wealthy as a sumptuous way to display one's taste. (Downton Abbey, anyone?) As a new bride, you'll enjoy using runners to decorate your table, along with your new serveware, china and glassware. For a wedding, they give an additional pop to the overall wedding design. Table runners may reflect the bride's color scheme to create a coordinated color palette, or in a neutral color, wedding table runners can provide the perfect backdrop for flowers and table settings.
Table runners can help lend a summery vibe to a wedding, as well. A burlap runner is perfect for a rustic wedding, while a floral print runner is divine for a garden wedding, and a shiny table runner ups the ante for a black-tie affair. Whatever your style, we've collected the best table runners from stores such as Etsy, Nordstrom, Macy's and more.

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. Flower crowns made a major comeback during the '60s and '70s, when hippies ushered them in as a symbol of peace, love and intimacy with 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. Angela Cosmai, celebrity colorist and color corrector at Pierre Michel Salon in New York City, says, "A lovely idea to pair with a flower crown is a headband braid, which can be achieved with your hair or by adding a faux braid. Wrap the braid around the head then intertwine the hair in and out of the flower crown to give you a whimsical look."
Most brides won't want to part with their flower crown after the big day, and they don't have to: These crowns, available at favorite retailers including ASOS, David's Bridal, Amazon and more, can do double duty as a festival accessory. Watch out, Coachella!
