In My Humble Opinion pick one or the other. Both together look too busy. The last picture doesn’t have a full crown like you’ve picked out that’s why it works. A full floral crown and that veil are too much together.

Honestly, it would look horrible!! Maybe just add a few flowers to your hair. Don’t do a full crown.

What about something like this? A comb with fresh flowers right where the veil is placed. I think that’s really the only way to have both.

bohosioux :  As someone who loves both birdcage veils and flower crowns I don’t think you can combine the two very easily. Busy-ness and conflicting aesthetics aside, here are things to consider:

A crown will not sit on your head the same way a comb or headband would. The inspiration pictures you’ve posted showing the combination do not appear to be full crowns that wrap around the head, and the true flower crowns in your first post sit much lower. Birdcage veils typically cover a swathe from the top of the head to the cheekbones, so you’re either going to have to wear your flower crown almost vertically or create a ‘bangs’ effect with the netting veil.

I also think that having both a horizontal tuft of textured fabric and a headpiece with as much horizontal symmetrical volume (and again, texture) as a flower crown will add an imbalanced amount of visual weight and width to your head, creating a bobblehead effect–especially if you’re going with a narrow sheath dress. I’m sorry bee but I think it will look sloppy, not avante-guarde.
