STYLE IT: SIX REASONS TO WEAR A FLOWER CROWN
Flower crowns in my humble opinion are one of the best ways to express yourself - floraly. Is that a word? As a floral designer, I love to make them. For me it feels like I am creating a piece of floral jewelry for your hair. Today's post is all about giving you an excuse to wear a flower crowns (as if you needed one).
FOR YOUR BRIDAL SHOOT
Do a special bridal portrait shoot. Apparently, it's a southern thing but I think it should become a total must do before your wedding day. MELISSA BARAN from Bisou Style wrote this Style Me Pretty blog post and say's, "scheduling a bridal portrait shoot with your photographer gives you the opportunity to see exactly how you’ll look and allows you the opportunity to make desired changes prior to the big day." I couldn't agree more. It also allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera with your hair, makeup and bridal accessories. It's also the perfect opportunity to have a special crown and bouquet made just for you!
FOR A MATERNITY SHOOT OR BOUDOIR SHOOT
Keep it sweet and simple or bold and beautiful. I recommend talking with your photographer about doing a special maternity or boudoir shoot (if you feel comfortable). You could wear some special pieces that you picked out just for the shoot and accent your look with a whimsical floral crown. I love maternity milk bath shoots and maternity shoots on the beach. Both are definitely different aesthetically but both will give you beautiful photographs and memories. No matter your style or reason, Nordstrom and Anthropologie and BHLDN have some great pieces which will help you feel special, sexy and confident for your shoot.
WITH THE WOMEN IN YOUR FAMILY
How fun would it be to do a family photoshoot with all the women in your immediate family? A generational photo featuring you, grandma, mom, sister, cousin and aunts? This would be a special way to honor the legacy of women who came before you and stand by you.
BEST FRIENDS & MENTOR PICS
Don't forget that even if your family isn't down with a family shoot, you could always do a fun shoot of you and your best girlfriend(s) or you and your favorite work mentor. Keep the theme light and fun! Show Me Your Mumu has some gorgeous options to help you coordinate your looks!
FOR YOUR GETTING READY PHOTOS
Get your bridesmaids together and enjoy some delicious OJ, Mimosas, fruit and scones and have fun being yourselves whilst getting your makeup and hair done. Don't forget to get your tribe together to create lasting memories with a candid picture of you all celebrating your special day. You can also see more flower crown pictures here on my Pinterest board.
FOR YOUR CEREMONY
Not everyone loves veils, however lately there are some gorgeous options out there. So if you're not into veils, instead don a flower crown for the ceremony and then take it off and designate a friend to hold on to it until you are back from your honeymoon. This is especially sweet if you and your fiance are eloping! If you store it in a cool place allowing it to naturally dry, you will have a beautiful wreath to hang in your bedroom as a reminder of your special day.
