One of the most enjoyable parts of my sister’s hen do last summer was making our own flower crowns with Crown and Glory. In fact it was so fun that Sophie and I decided we had to create something for the rest of you to be able to experience the same thing. And so the concept of these DIY flower crown kits was born!
So whether you want to do it on your hen do like we did, at a birthday party, on a rainy Saturday afternoon, or you just want to make your own flower crown for your wedding then these kits are for you.
April and James’ wedding was colourful and retro inspired with lots of fun details. The bride wore a dress by Kitty and Dulcie and a veil from Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory.
“We envisaged a really fun and happy day, which included things we loved and that fitted with our personal style and tastes”, said the bride. “Generally the more colourful, vintage-y or kitsch the better! I spent a huge amount of time trawling through antiques stores, jumble sales, and charity shops for things that caught my eye. I love a bit of bric-a-brac! The owls were a result of a walk in the park one afternoon too. We stumbled upon Owl Adventures doing a public flying show – it just seemed like a fun thing that people would enjoy so we made the spontaneous decision to book it there and then!”
The couple ditched a lot of traditional elements and kept things as relaxed as possible. “We didn’t have a first dance, cake cutting, formal seating at the reception, or a typical three course meal situation!” April continued. “We didn’t even really have many group photos. We just wanted it to be easy going, and so we scrapped any elements that we didn’t want or that made us feel uncomfortable. And well, I guess I haven’t been to many weddings with the combination of owls, pizza and a bouncy disco!”
The day has come! The brand new veil collection from Rock n Roll Bride and Crown and Glory is finally available to buy online. I feel like I’ve been teasing you with this collection forever so I am super excited for you to now be able to get your hands on it! Our first veil collab was more popular than we ever could have imagined so, of course, we had to design some more for 2017 brides.
This collection is made up of seven gorgeous veils and three complementary pieces for your bridesmaids. They can also all be customised to suit your own, distinctive style. All the piece with glitter can be made in 30 different colours, and our showstopper, the Nebula cathedral length veil, can be dip dyed in any colour you like!
So let’s get on with it shall we!?
