A darling flower crown of unruly jasmine or whimsical wax buds encircling a blusher or cathedral veil? Be still my heart. How about a few delicate blooms gently tucked into a rolled chignon? Even showoff-y dinner plate dahlias pinned by the temples could feel absolutely flapperish if joined by a strand of honeysuckle vine.

A bib made of ranunculus, hellebore, juliet roses, anemones, and chamomile would feel downright Secret Garden. I also think the idea of foregoing bridesmaid bouquets and substituting with a collection of flower crowns or necklaces could be a really lovely alternative for the non-traditional bride.
Why stop there? Floral earrings might be a bit of a stretch, but a spyria bracelet could be so dainty and sweet. I also adore the idea of crafting a ring out of an orchid or red clover bud.
Accessorizing with flowers can be tailored to suit any bride's aesthetic with a little thoughtfulness and consideration. I hope to see more brides incorporating flowers in their attire—and not just their bouquet!
