@secretbee33:  This is not answering your question…. but before you decide on it I highly recommend going to the florist and seeing what you think of the smell… In a small-ish floral crown it should be fine, but in large quantities it smells pretty bad!

I don’t know about in the US, but here it is so cheap that any costs are likely to be somewhat inflated labour costs, rather than materials ones.

I didn’t have a full crown, but I used fresh baby’s breath (they stayed fine through the entire day even though it was +28C) at the back of my head:

Our flower girl had a full crown though – her mum (who is a florist) made it using a metal wire base.

@secretbee33: Thanks! It was a real last minute decision. The hair experience was a total catastrophe, and the back of my head looked very “bottom heavy”. One of my bridesmaids rushed away to the local flower store and bought a bunch of baby’s breath and then we just tucked it in there. Really balanced things out – so they saved the day!

In terms of how well they last, my hair was ready around 12 pm and they were fine through the ceremony and the party. By the time I took them out they were a little dry though, but not enough for them to fall apart. Unless you have a very early ceremony I don’t think you have to worry about them looking like dandruff. 🙂
