Despite the fact that wedding flower crowns are hugely popular today, they're really not a new idea. The fresh flower halo has been a popular accessory all over the world for centuries. And it's steeped in tradition and meaning. To get the full scoop on the flower crown, you have to go all the way back to ancient Greece. Let the history lesson begin.
Sunflower was used as a symbol of Spiritual Church due to its property of turning towards sun as “spiritualism turns toward the light of truth”. Its property of move towards sun is called “heliotropism”.
Daisies symbolize innocence. Daisy is a ‘two in one’ flower i.e. white petals peripherally and tiny yellow disc petals that form the eye. Its medicinal properties include relieving indigestion, easing of cough, slowing the bleeding and easing back pain.
Flower crowns were common in ancient Greece; it was especially popular to wear them at special occasions to honor the gods. Going along with that idea, during the same era, the laurel leaf wreath came into fashion as well (think: Julius Caesar). These laurel halos would be awarded to army victors to honor achievements and signify respect.
The late 1960s are practically synonymous with hippie culture—and flower crowns became a fashion accessory mainstay associated with peace and love, all ideals of the movement. Though the hippie style was a subculture of the time, it influenced mainstream fashion, thus bringing flower crowns back into style at weddings.
