Wedding Hair Crowns
Wedding hair crowns (also known as hair wreaths) are a hair accessory worn as a headband. While some wedding hair crowns are tied with a ribbon, others are directly attached to a headband. Get a glimpse of wedding hair crowns below and let us know which one you love best!
Wedding Hair Crowns – #1: Wire Pearl Crown
The Wire Pearl Crown, our first featured item, is handmade with champagne colored pearls and wire. It secures in the back with a satin cream-colored ribbon. (This style is also pictured in the image above.)
Wedding Hair Crowns – #2: Sparkle Vine Crown
I love the ‘vine’ look of this next crown which is made of rhinestones. You can select either pale green rhinestone, traditional crystal rhinestones, or, if you have another color in mind, just ask – Regina says she’s happy to make a custom request if possible.
Wedding Hair Crowns – #3: Lace + Floral Crown
Am I supposed to pick a favorite? Who cares… THIS is it! This lovely lace + floral crown features two stems of lily of the valley silk flowers, champagne lace embroidery, beadwork, and is attached to a white fabric-wrapped crown. It ties in the back with a white ribbon made of velvet. This piece just says ‘bride’ to me. Love, love, love.
Wedding Hair Crowns – #4: Blush Leaf Crown
If you love blush, this is the piece for you: it features blush, white, and mocha-colored leaves on a thin metal headband. (Worried about metal headband pain through the night? Fear not – it’s backed with soft velvet for a comfortable, pain-free fit.)
Wedding Hair Crowns – #5: Blue Leaf Vine
And – last but certainly not least – is this blue leaf vine crown. This piece is perfect for adding a little ‘something blue’ to your ensemble and features misty blue, mint, and soft gray velvet leaves with champagne pearl beads paired with pale blue Swarovski crystals. It is attached to a gray ribbon as an easy addition to your hairstyle.
