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!

Weddings offer a rare opportunity to gather all of one's favorite people -- his and yours -- into one room for a fabulous time. Far before the wedding day arrives, you'll have chosen your most intimate friends to take their positions within the bridal party as bridesmaids and groomsmen. Thanking these special bridal party members with a gift is customary. You can do so before the wedding at various points: during the bachelor or bachelorette weekend or at the rehearsal dinner, for instance. Others do it while getting ready for the wedding, especially if the gift is something the guests might use to spruce themselves up, such as earrings or cuff links. Below, we've gathered an affordable selection of wedding party gifts. Believe it: For $10 and under, you can offer your bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts they'll use and enjoy for years to come from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and other popular online stores.
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
