There was a time when only the youngest members of the bridal party would sport flower crowns but not anymore!

You've just got to love a bride in a crown of wild flowers. It's so darn Bohemian. Waves, curls or slightly disheveled hair essential.

I love these images of pure white, ethereal, flower crown perfection {very bridal indeed}:

Here are some of my favourite flower crowns. I'm particularly loving those that incorporate lavender...gorgeous.

This British bride embraced a bright and beautifully colourful flower crown like no other I've seen.

She looks absolutely stunning...

Traditional brides who don't want to choose between a veil and a flower crown...

why not go for both?! You can always take the veil off after the ceremony.

There is a very good reason flower crowns have been so popular for child bridesmaids throughout the ages...they look sooo CUTE!
