Lovely, aren’t they? Now check out three key tips for wearing a hair crown.
3 Tips for Wearing a Hair Crown
1. Pick one in season.
Bridal hair crowns come in a variety of materials, sizes, and colors. Be sure to pick a hair crown that ties into your wedding season perfectly. For instance, in the spring and summer, pick flowers in pastel or brightly-hued blooms. This coral pink hair crown by KimArt is one of my favorites…
… and I adore this dusty rose hair crown, too. Both are perfect for spring or summer weddings!
One of my favorite looks for a summer wedding is a hair crown made of baby’s breath.
Another option is to wear a green leaf hair crown. It ties into any season effortlessly.
Winter wedding? Try a red berry hair crown as one example.
2. Wear a casual hairstyle.
Wondering how to wear a hair crown? Most brides wear one near their forehead with a casual, hair down hairstyle. We’ve also seen brides wear a hair crown with their hair pulled back in a more casual hairstyle, with wispy bangs near the front.
Likewise, a hair crown fits in best with a more casual wedding (and dress).
3. Try the look before the big day.
If you’re wearing a hair crown on your wedding day, be sure to bring your hair crown to your hairstylist as you try out wedding day styles… and see if you like the way the hair crown looks before you make your decision.
Also, wearing a bridal hair crown doesn’t mean you can’t wear a veil: some brides wear a veil during the ceremony and reserve the hair crown for the reception (or solely for photos with the groom). Other brides pair the crown with a veil.
So, what do you think? Will you be wearing a hair crown for your wedding? Why or why not?
