Hooray, its finally Spring! Before too long, we’ll be starting to see the resurgence of the Flower Crown, set to still be on our trend radar this summer. So why are we still so darn obsessed with them?
Flower crowns have been a symbol of love, fertility and celebration throughout history, across different cultures, from all over the world. Perhaps it’s the halo effect. Or the ultra-romantic vibe. Regardless, there is something about wearing them that just makes you feel special.
The flower crown has been traced back to Ancient Greece, where it was symbol of celebration. Fastforward through medieval Europe where it made particular waves in Eastern Europe, to China, where the orangs blossom wreath was customarily worn for a wedding, symbolising fertility.
Like the white wedding gown, Queen Victoria also brought the flower crown back into European fashion when she wore an orange blossom wreath for her wedding to Prince Albert in 1840.
The flower crown has seen surges of popularity from the likes of Marie Antoinette, Frida Kahlo and Dolce and Gabbana. Whilst they may have more recently risen recently from the crowds of Coachella, history has proven that flower crowns will continue to weave in and out of fashion.
Due to the rising popularity of these gorgeous wreaths, we’re seeing more and more ways to incorporate flower crowns into special moments. You might think you can make your own, and luckily, Hobart how has it’s own flower crown party provider.
Queen of Crowns Hobart offers DIY flower crown kits for your hens party, bridal shower, wedding, or just a general girls day out! We love this idea so much that we’ll be hosting DIY flower crown workshops with Queen of Crowns Hobart at our Showcase Event on the 20th of October. Grab your ticket online to secure your spot, as they are super limited!
From oversize flowers to a few simple green sprigs, you can personalise flower crowns to your hearts content. Perhaps you could have your flower girls wear mini-crowns, or create unique ones for each bridesmaid, or ask your hairstylist about incorporating one for yourself.
Keep an eye out for DIY flower clips and more inspirational ideas in our next Issue of Pure Bride Magazine Issue #7, also out in October.
