I think jeweled bolero OR flower crown, but not both. also agree with PP that a simple crown would look better.

Hello lovely Bees! I actually have the same question…Below is the dress that I will be wearing at my wedding:

I cannot decide on whether I should do a flower crown or a juliet cap veil.  I LOVE flower crowns (especially dainty all white ones) but fear that it may look disjointed with the dress style (Im wearing my hair down in cascading curls with a center part because it works well with my face). I feel that if I did a flower crown I may be able to get away with it if I steer clear of gaudy accessories. On the other hand I also love cap veils as they have an ethereal and angelic flare…….not sure wich headpiece+veil combination would go perfectly with my dress….any suggestions ladies?

I did a flower crown with a ballgown, I think it worked!

I’m obviously biased though. 🙂 But I loved having a flower crown. Do what you want, no regrets!

islandprincess7 :  I think it depends on your dress. As PPs said the OP her dress choice is light and flowy. I see your dress with more of a tiara or traditional veil.

HBIC :  

I agree with pp joesbride above, and  I don’t believe a Juliet cap/veil goes with it either,  as your dress is more princessy and traditional, and IMO flower crowns and Juliet caps etc belong much more to  the boho/ethereal genre.  I think your gown calls for  a long (chapel/cathedral)   plain or possibly very finely edged veil , worn from the crown of the head, not ‘ponytail’ style.

I know it doesn’t really matter if looks are mixed and of course anyone can wear  anything they like, but I do believe the best overall looks are where a theme has been understood and followed . I hope OP, for instance,  did NOT  go with the jewelled bolero, pretty though they are. .

Your dress is lovely btw and I note it looks at its best in  the pics where there is minimal jewellery . Far too much pearl  action in the first pic!

I personally think you could get away with a Juliet cap, but I would steer clear of a flower crown with this one. It’s a much more formal ball gown than OP’s, so I think a flower crown would look out of place. It’s a gorgeous dress though – you need to pick accessories that do it justice!

Something like this would look beautiful.

Definitely go with a flower crown!  I am wearing Hayley Paige’s “Halo” ballgown for my beach wedding and I am totally rocking a flower crown.  My bridesmaids will also wear smaller flower crowns.

Your dress is floaty and dreamy.  A flower crown will look beautiful….

Thank you ladies so much! I think I will go for the cathedral veil and more traditional headpiece 🙂

islandprincess7 :  your dress is honestly much too formal to wear with a flower crown. A tiara or elegant updo might be better
