DIY Flower Crown Tips to Keep You from Going Over Budget

Let’s talk about this flower crown trend because it’s literally everywhere! They started off as a cute, hippie look for festivals and costumes, and now they’ve transformed into stunning accessories for your special day. We absolutely love the way they look, but we’re not as into how much they cost. Companies are selling them for prices as high as $200! And if you’re looking at having your entire bridal party in them, multiply that cost by, say, 8 bridesmaids? WHOA! Suddenly your price just went up $1600.

If you’re in the process of planning your wedding, then you have a pretty good idea of how things start to add up rather quickly and before you know it, you’re way over budget. So we can totally understand wanting to cut costs wherever possible. Which is exactly why we’ve created this easy DIY Guide to help you save and still have the most beautiful bridal party of your dreams!

A List of Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Floral wire
  • Floral tape
  • Garden Shears or Sharp Scissors
  • Flowers of Your Choice
  • Fillers/Greenery of Your Choice (Ex: baby’s breath, leafy branches)

First, you’ll want to make mini arrangements of flowers and greenery. Then, use your floral tape to keep them in place. When you’re done creating a few of those (at least 4 of them), measure the floral wire around your head and cut it so you have the perfect size for you!

Next, it’s time to wrap the wire around the ends of your mini arrangements and add any additional singular flowers or greenery that you’d like. (Don’t forget to tape things in place as you add!)

When your crown is complete, tape the two ends of the wire together and voilà! You’ve just made your very own flower crown! Plus, with your own personal touch, it probably looks way better than anything you could’ve bought.

Of course no flower crown would be complete without your perfect (Z)veil! Here are a few of our favorites:

SHORT VEILS

  1. CATALPA

This timeless style matches the beauty of your flower crown. Neither one outshines the other and we love that! They truly complement each other so well.

  1. WILLOW

This beautiful veil gets its femininity from its lace trim, which makes it a perfect match to a feminine flower crown like yours!

LONG VEILS

  1. BANYAN

A classic veil like this one is always going to be stunning on its own, but we also love the look of pairing it with a flower crown thanks to its unadorned design.

  1. TANOAK

If you’re a girly-girl whose motto is ‘the more flowers the better,’ you should absolutely pair this floral veil with your flower crown!
