o_O   OMG I love it!

I maybe bias though because I want to do a flower crown, I love how dainty and whimsical yours is and it ties into the blush/champagne color.

Plus you can still do soft romantic hair with the crown

I think flower crowns are better suited to more bohemian dresses – yours is pretty traditional and formal (and absolutely beautiful I might add!!) I kind of think the dress and the crown might clash? Are you also adding a veil?

Honestly if you love the look of both together then go for it!! You’re going to look gorgeous either way.

I feel lik esometimes the flower crowns are way over the top but that one is so gorgeous! I think they would be pretty together.

The answer to any question “to flower crown or not to flower crown” will always be “to flower crown” in my book. I love flower crowns and you have the perfect, romantic dress to  pull it off.

Go forth and crown!

I’d say to do it! I know flower crowns are usually associated with bohemian type wedding dresses but long ago there was a bee who wore a flower crown with a traditional dress and she looked gorgeous. She kept the dress very simple though, without any competing details. Here are some of her pictures and site she was featured on. I think you should try on the whole ensemble with the flower crown and then determine if the look needs any editing.

I like the crown, but, don’t feel like one would fit your dress. That’s just me, though.

I think it’d be gorgeous. Are you getting married outside? I think that’s where they look best. It seems out of place in a banquet hall, hotel ballroom etc.

Hmm, I’m not sure if the crown goes with the (gorgeous!) dress, but maybe you could work a couple flowers into an updo?

Your dress has alot going on with the lace and beading and as PPs mentioned, I feel like flower crowns go best with simple, light, flowy dresses (even the bride in the pics a PP posted has a pretty simple dress even if it has some structure, although I feel like her crown would have been more flattering if it were more delicate and not so large). So my vote would be no.

I adore flower crowns, but I also agree that it may not complement your dress (which is beautiful!).

I adore flower crowns (and plan to wear one myself) but I think the belt on the dress takes it to a more dressed up look. I think this dress would he beautiful with a flowy veil.

Your dress is gorgeous and those earrings go perfect with it.  I think the crown would clash with the dress; agree with PP about incorporating some delicate flowers in an updo.
