Flower Girls Flower Crowns

Well aren’t these just the cutest addition to your wedding? Taking into consideration how long it will last on your gorgeous girls head, you may want to consider a flower headband. Beautiful lace textures and pearls would compliment your gown perfectly.
Another option would be to use a variety of flowers used in your own crown, to create a mini crown.

Classic/Timeless Flower Crowns

Amazing classic timeless flower crowns can be made from various materials such as wax flowers and pearls or from real flowers. If you love the classic look from yesteryear, classic would suit you perfectly.

The faux flower crown could be a great option if you are having a destination wedding, pop the crown in a special box and take it along with you. This style would go perfectly with a gown featuring a soft french overlay, or a beautiful lace bodice.

Classic timeless style crowns can be made up of simple elegant flowers such as white daisies, sweet peas or babies breath.

Australian Native Flower Crowns

If you are having an outdoor wedding or just love earthy colours and subdued tones, then this would be ideal for you. It also has the added bonus of longevity, no wilted flowers here!

As an ode to the famous Banjo Paterson, consider using Australian native plants such eucalyptus leaves, flannel flowers or even add a cheeky few gumnuts into the mix.

This style of flower crown would pair well with a gown featuring elegant parisienne tulle or a simple bow.

Subtle Flower Crowns

Perhaps your style is more rustic and simple. The simplicity of this crown means more focus on it complimenting your beautiful gown.
Suiting a wide range of styles, subtle flower crowns add a delicate touch to a gown with lace sleeves or if you are styling your dress with a shrug.

Small simple flowers such as tiny roses, or even flower buds look beautiful.
