Rock the Wreath!

In recent days the wedding of super model Kate Moss has brought a buzz to the flower shop. The buzz you ask? Hair wreaths. In the released photographs of her wedding, she is shown with many small children wearing fresh flower hair wreaths. This made us all start talking. These gorgeous wreaths are not only meant to be worn by children, but brides as well. With the spring wedding season just around the corner, more brides should think about a head wreath. The boho look has found its way into mainstream clothing more than ever and even now into bridal wear. You don't have to be a hippie to become a flower child.  

This week's blog is showing you how to rock a head wreath and still look polished and put together. Also, we take a brief look into the history and symbolism of wreaths.  Knowing what it is about them that is so interesting makes wearing one all that more fun.

We hope you enjoy the blog and we hope to see more of you rock the wreath this wedding season!

It's fair to say they rock the wreath!

  1. Really impressed with the fabulous planning done for the memorable day. Decorations and display signage boards done at my colleague's pre wedding dinner were amusing. Liked the wonderful location of NYC wedding venues with perfect party vibes all over. Flowers created a charming ambience as well.
