1) Make sure it complements the overall theme
If you are going to wear a floral crown, make sure that it doesn’t deviate from your wedding theme. Every wedding has a story and you don’t want your crown to end that story abruptly. The crown must go together with other pieces seamlessly.
If you are having a really bright wedding motif, consider toning down a bit with your crown. Stick to your color motif or choose the shades that are closest to it. Think of the dominant color. Christy Meisner, a New York-based floral crown designer, advises using “a bunch of different flowers, huge blooms and smaller dainty ones.”
Make sure that the blooms complement your skin color, too. Otherwise, the crown will look outrightly out of place. Stick to the closest palette for a more cohesive look. Likewise, make sure that the crown complements your body shape. For petite brides, don’t wear over-sized garlands, or it will only overpower your bridal gown. For voluptuous brides, avoid wearing a wreath that flattens the head because the head will look smaller.
However, if your friends have known you for being bold, you may choose to be as dauntless as you can be with your crown. There are really no hard rules. Even if there are, you can always bend some of them.
