As you explore the world of bridal traditions, you may not be familiar with the term, “Bridal Trousseau.” It’s one of the most important traditions as it includes all the possessions the bride assembles for her wedding and goes beyond “the dress.” The trousseau may include bridal accessories, jewelry, lingerie, toiletries, and makeup.
Your wedding flowers should be considered an important finishing touch to the trousseau. Add additional charm and softness to your wedding attire with the new trend of a floral crown. Whether you’re going for a bohemian-look or just want to include the bountiful goodness that comes with living in Virginia, a flower crown can add an unexpected ethereal touch to your special day.
Florists nowadays are seeing more and more of them, and they can be used in any wedding setting. Try Spray Roses for a more formal event, or a crown made from greenery and Baby’s Breath for a more natural look. Here is a partial list of flowers that could also work: Waxflower, Hypericum Berries, Stock Blossoms, Chrysanthemums, Limonium, and Larkspur. Stay on trend with some lavish greenery in your flower crown by using Seeded Eucalyptus, Italian Ruscus, or Ivy.
Keep your details traditional with white and cream ribbons. Or if ribbons aren’t your style, a veil can easily be attached. Consult with your local florist on what exactly you envision for your flower crown. Also, consider using them for your flower girls. The precious addition will have the little ones looking and feeling like a princess for the day.
