Flower crowns…so summer 2013

It’s official: it’s not just boho brides and Lana del Ray that are wearing flower crowns.  They are one of the hottest trends of summer 2013.  So says Grazia magazine.  What bigger endorsement could this trend want?!

Brides, I urge you to jump on this bandwagon and run with it!  Etsy is a huge resource for flower crowns.  There are so many talented flower-weaving magicians on there.  One of my long-time favourite shops is BeSomethingNew.  They make incredibly intricate and unique wreaths, crowns, headbands and fascinators, in rustic and vintage styles. Here are two of my favourites from their Etsy shop:

whichgoose is another favourite shop of mine, for consistently desirable and beautifully photographed flower crowns and wreaths.

An Etsy shop called kisforkani also caught my eye and not just because its owner is an Aussie – you gotta love ’em (literally – I’m married to one ;-)).  Here you’ll find gloriously bright, plush flower crowns galore.

And if you’re still looking for inspiration, boho-weddings.com even has a pinterest pin board dedicated to flower crowns.

As for me, I’m trying to work out an opportunity for a flower crown this summer.  A silver flower crown for a friend’s silver wedding?  A baby’s breath crown for my baby god-daughter’s christening?  I’m stretching it, I know.
