A traditional bride will see the veil as the ultimate finishing touch for her wedding ensemble. But, if your wedding has more of a rustic, bohemian look, a floral crown could be the perfect alternative bridal headpiece for you. These gorgeous accessories can be dramatic and romantic or simple and subdued to match the style of your celebration, and while many florists will happily design crowns alongside your bouquets and centrepieces, this can also be a fun project to tackle at home.
To get the scoop on how to design a gorgeous DIY floral crown we turned to the pros at DeLight Floral + Design in Toronto.
To build your crown, all you will need is some floral wire, brown twine, pruning sheers (wire cutters will work too) and of course, flowers. In terms of blooms, it's best to select a variety of flowers and leafy greens when building your headpiece. Using fresh flowers will help create a stunning, aromatic headpiece for your big day but remember to set aside time closer to the wedding to craft your crown so it will look fresh and vibrant (remember to store it in a cool place until you're ready to wear it). For a cost-effective alternative (that you can wear beyond your wedding day) consider faux flowers.
The best thing about wedding DIY projects like this is the freedom you'll have to adorn your creation however you like, so feel free to add ribbons, jewels or any other items you feel will make your crown special.
