You take a deep breath.. the proposal and excitement has come down a notch when you realise the hunt is now on for any wedding inspiration you can get your hands on. As you pin, flick or paste you are sure to come across countless images of beautiful women wearing floral crowns. The rustic boho look was very much a desired look for many  brides in 2014.  Designers too, like Reem Acra and Dolce Gabbana, as part of their 2014 and 2015 collections have their models strutting the catwalks wearing floral crowns entwined with gold or diamonte tiaras or even lights to create extra sparkle. Flowers are finer and the combination is more subtle.  This is a lovely look for  a garden wedding or a less traditional bride. Marchesa too has referenced the 70's and all love of Boho Lux,  however have opted for  large pastel floral crowns to compliment  their 2015 collection. 

Styling your wedding look can be overwhelming with so much inspirational material to absorb through social media. Truth be told,  we are all in danger of Pinteresting  ourselves to death!!

Note to self; be true to your own sense of style regardless of what is on trend. Handmade lace headpieces are a classic option for a bride who is looking to complete their couture look. This can work to either compliment a veil or substitute it, depending on your preference. 

For the classic bride in search of a veil with a  modern twist, look no further than Monique Lhullier's latest collection. The cathedral length veils with lace borders and large appliquéd lace motifs look classic and fresh.  

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to looking at how to complete your wedding look next season. One thing is certain,  the floral crown  in all its incarnations are here to stay for 2015.
