Crowns have always symbolized grandeur, honor and celebration. In British royalty, tradition states that only married women might wear crowns and tiara, to denote they are no longer available. For brides, wearing a crown for decades was equal to wearing a ball-gown, bun and going for the “princess” look. Even though some brides still prefer that, today crowns have made a comeback for many kinds of brides, including the most unexpected one, the bohochic bride.
As our Fashion Director, Gisele Del Busto, explained, before it was easy to spot which bride wanted which headpiece. For instance, classic, modern brides that would choose a designer like Romona Keveza, will most likely wear a hair comb. While brides choosing more lacey styles would opt for headbands. The crowns, again, were saved for extravagant weddings and big gowns. That is not the case anymore.
Crowns have made a comeback in the fashion world in runways around the world, like in the Dolce & Gabanna one. Now crowns are more of a fashion – statement, than a regal symbol. Brides with many kinds of dresses, from the sensual, sparkly Berta and Galias, to the more romantic Lazaros, even to the bohos Rue De Seine Bridal, all have embraced and love crowns to complete their unique styles and bridal looks.
