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!
Pearl earrings are a perennial favorite for brides. Aesthetically, they fit the occasion thanks to their glamorous luster and elegant personality. And because they're so versatile, pearl earrings can be worn long after your wedding. In fact, whether they're vintage pearl studs or on-trend drop earrings in a rose gold setting, pearl earrings are a staple of a jewelry collection.
Many lucky brides receive their first cultured or freshwater pearl earrings as a wedding gift. Traditionally, pearls worn as wedding earrings tended to be white, but modern brides can opt for black pearls (which are actually dark gray) or other shades, such as pale pink or nude.
Stud earrings are always a classic wedding look. Some studs are embellished with small diamonds or gemstones for extra glamour. And since a variety of shades are available, you can pick pearl earrings in tones to match your wedding colors. If pearl earrings are your only jewelry, you can also choose a style that is a true statement piece, such as dramatic teardrops or chic chandeliers. One of the best things about pearls is that they always look timeless and ladylike, no matter what the design.
Here's the thing about your wedding day makeup: It's going to look incredible. And aside from maybe the heavy powder and false lashes, you're going to want to replicate and incorporate what the makeup artist did into your daily (or evening) routine. So, when you do your beauty run-through, work with your stylist to find out the exact products and colors she's using or go online and choose them together. A pretty eyeshadow palette can take a bride from her wedding day, to the evening reception, the honeymoon, and all the way to her first anniversary celebration (and beyond!). Here, we've chosen some of our favorite bridal eyeshadow palettes from Sephora, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and more

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!)
