FLOWER CROWNS: This season's bride style update

Stuck for an alternative to the tiara and not a veil girl? Call it the Lana Del Rey effect, but if you're not topping your (tumbling, glossy) tresses with a crown of blooms this wedding season you're missing a trick. A romantic nod to the summer of love or erstwhile fairytales dependent on which way your sartorial style swings, what started as a renaissance for the sweetly innocent flower-girl wreath adorned with teeny tiny buds and foliage - see the littlest maids of both Kate Moss and Middleton - has grown into a fully fledged, glamorous and fresh style statement. Perhaps that's because they take a certain amount of panache to pull off, and the aforementioned healthy, abundant hair. I'm even seriously considering giving it a whirl to inject my dress with a little 'now' factor and can't wait to see what magic my hair dresser works at my trial this Friday topped with one of these pretties.

Wonder if Lana would approve...?
