Flower Crowns for Summer Brides

May 31, 2018

A re-emerging trend amongst brides is the whimsical and charming flower crown. Both fashion-forward and respectful of fashion history, Ellis Bridals has searched their archives and found some vintage images of an Ellis Bridals photoshoot from the 80s featuring stunning flower crowns and timeless Ellis Bridals dresses.

Simple yet elegant, this accessory will complement an outdoor wedding in a botanical garden or a scenic countryside view. Ellis Bridals fashion experts have put together a few looks based on some of the most popular flower crown styles.

The Classic Crown

The classic full crown with either neutral tones or a pop of colour would work well with this Ellis Bridals wedding dress with lace overlaying details.

Lace A-Line Dress | Style 12287

The 3-tiered scalloped lace skirt is unforgettable: endlessly romantic and free flowing, this overlaid lace moves like no other. A robust flower crown in pink and cream tones with your hair loose and dreamy and matching bouquet would capture a fairy-tale elegance.

Vintage Elegance

Why not try an understated and subtle way to incorporate flowers in your hair, try weaving them into your hair or attaching them to a pin to create an elegant yet breath-taking wedding hair style. Ellis Bridals fashion stylists have paired this flower crown type with this classic Ellis Bridals vintage dress that has a modern twist.

Beaded Sleeve Dress | Style 18085

With unique angel sleeves and vintage-inspired beaded detailing, this gown is one you will adore for a lifetime. Custom metallic beaded embroidery runs through this slim fluted piece, subtly catching the light. Pair with a diamond drop earrings and a subtle bouquet that matches the flowers in your hair.

Hair Coronet

Think outside the box! Why not actually combine the idea of a flower crown with the way you dress your hair on your big day? Have your wedding hair stylist create stunning flowers out of your hair wrapped around in a coronet-style. Ellis Bridals feel that this trendy and fashion-forward style would best suit a clean and chic Ellis Bridals gown. And what could be more chic than an Ellis Bridals mermaid style?

Beaded Mermaid Dress | Style 18056

We think that this full mermaid dress I the perfect combination of simplicity and detail. It features all over beaded lace appliqué that catches the light just beautifully. The striking sweetheart neckline is the finishing touch on a perfectly feminine design, pair with a simple silver pendant, and a subtle pink lip for the wow-factor.
