    The only problem I see with it is that there’s nothing else delicate or flowery about the dress. Your dress, given the material and shape, seems like it’d be better paired with some bling, but if you want to go the flower crown route then I say go for it, and maybe add some other kind of accessory to play up the more delicate side.

    I have to agree with the pp, to me a flower crown would clash a little with your dress style – it just doesn’t have that romantic country vibe that I usually associate with flower crowns.

    I think flower crowns are usually with aline type dresses, bohemian or contry type more softness. you can definetly put some flowers in your hair with this dress, but i think a flower crown would clash in my opinoin. What about getting a second reception dress thats more flowy so then you could wear your flower cown afetwards?

    Noelliemar: I was thinking a little more about your dress and how you can potentially alter it to fit the country/flower crown theme a little better. 

    Perhaps a seamstress can take out all the ruffles from the skirt and instead add lace overlays with a slight train? This is sort of the vision I’m thinking of, just with more layers down the skirt:

    Noelliemar:  It really depends what the flower crown looks like tbh. What color will the flowers be? White? Pink? Pearls (necklace/bracelet) would soften it a bit, I think, and then definitely try and tie it in with your bouquet.

    Double post, but I agree that changing the bottom of the dress to make it more simple would help too.

    Noelliemar: I’m not a seamstress, so I don’t know. However, I know a good one can do miracles! If I were you I would look up reviews for seamstresses in your area and then contact the best one you can find. Bring along a bunch of pictures showing what you have in mind and then she can tell you if it’s doable or not. I’m not sure when your wedding is, but if you would do something like this it could take quite some time to get the alterations done – so I would book an appointment asap.
