The classic veil will never go out of style, but sometimes bridal hair trends come and go. Most recently we've been seeing more bridal halo's, flower crowns, and floral headpieces make their way over into the world of bridal. The flower crown is not something new, however; it's a tradition that started years ago and has since come-and-gone throughout history. Starting in Greece, both men and women wore them at special occasions to honor the gods. Laurel leaf crowns were also worn during this time, given to army victors to acknowledge achievement. In Chinese culture, orange blossom crowns are traditionally worn at wedding ceremonies. Since orange blossom trees blossom and bear fruit simultaneously, the orange blossom crown is thought to be a symbol of fertility in an effort to bring children to the marriage. In the 1960's the flower crown came full force into both the ready-to-wear world, and the world of bridal fashion. The 1960's era is often what we think of when we envision a flower crown but today they're back in many different ways. Whether it be large, small, and sometimes somewhere in between, this trend seems to be sticking around. Check out a few photos below! Photographs by Luna De Mare photography.
