Nothing puts a smile on my face quite like gorgeous wedding accessories – from shoes to bags, and everything else a bride could need. 

And you know what we're seriously loving right now? Floral crowns (yes, really).

Now don't get me wrong, the floral crown has been somewhat over-used by festival goers and young people everywhere – but don't be discouraged.

For years (decades even) gorgeous brides have been donning gorgeous floral crowns, and we are in love with the idea. 

So with that in mind, we decided to do a lovely little round up of our favourite bridal floral crowns. 

You're welcome.

Want to make an attention-grabbing bouquet for a festival, hen do, wedding or party? Bloom & Wild's floral stylist Rowan Blossom and author of bestselling book Living With Flowers, is here to show you how. 

And good news. It's not as hard as you'd think. Everyone can do this. You just need to allow about an hour to make it on the day you want to wear it so it's lovely and fresh. But if you really, really won't have time on the day? Just make it the day before and fill it in a big bowl of cold water overnight. 

What you'll need:

– Measuring tape

– Floristry wire

– Green floristry tape

– Floristry scissors

– Ribbon of your choice

– 1 Bloom & Wild letterbox bouquet, we've used The Rebecca

Top tip:

Choose a bouquet with woody or rigid stems as they last longer out of water. Roses, carnations, leucospermum, celosia, and foliage like ruscus and eucalyptus are all great choices. 

Steps:

1. Measure your head then cut your floristry wire to size

2. Twist each end of wire to create loops. Hold them in place by tightly wrapping them with floristry tape. You'll pop your ribbon through these later.

3. Trim each flower down so there's only 1-2 inches of stem left. Cut down your foliage into sprigs this long as well.

4. Start by placing a piece of foliage at one end of the floral wire, keeping it as close to the loop as you can without covering it.

5. To hold it in place, grab your floristry tape. Keep it on the reel, but hold the open end over the stem wire, pull the tape until it turns clear then tightly wrap it around. Do this one or twice until it feels securely held. 

6. Repeat with a flower. You want to pop your flower as close to the foliage as possible to hide any signs of tape.

7. Then keep repeating steps 6 and 7, alternating between foliage and flower, until your crown is full. Remember to keep pulling your tape tightly and to keep your stems lined up in the same direction as you go. Try saving some of your bigger, focal stems for the front where they'll be most seen.

8. If any stems poke out of line, just trim them at the edge of the tape as you go along.

9 When you reach the end of your crown, secure the last piece of foliage in place by tightly wrapping it with floristry tape. 

10. Next, tie your ribbon through the end loops.

11. Then you're ready to go.

Beyoncé stepped out in style at the Wearable Art Gala at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles on Saturday.

All eyes were on the iconic singer in her plunging red gown, but it was her amazing statement flower crown that really caught people's eye.

Not that Beyoncé needs any help commanding a room, but her commitment to the glorious flower crown definitely got people talking. 

 

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

The statement piece is reminiscent of festivals past, when the flower crown ruled the roost in terms of popular head gear. 

The item has waned in popularity since, with hats, bandanas and delicate head chains becoming more and more frequent, but Beyoncé makes a definite case for the triumphant return of the flower crown.
