Flower crowns really are a thing of beauty and one of the only occasions you can use them is at a wedding.

I myself was a flower crown bride and I am so happy I opted for a crown of fresh blooms. They really did make me feel ever so special.

Now, if you are here it’s because you are considering a wedding flower crown either for you as a bride, for your bridesmaids or for flower girls. Great news, as I have rounded up my faves into one big ideas gallery!
