Q. I love the look of flower crowns, but I'm worried it may look overwhelming next to my heavily-beaded dress. Do you have any ideas of how I could wear one without overdoing it?

A. Julie Berry says: A flower crown makes a beautiful hair accessory. It should enhance your look by accentuating your gown rather than overwhelming it.

Everyone is different, but as a general rule, I would suggest you look for a half-crown rather than a full crown. These work well with a couple of statement blooms or a row of delicate flowers.

For a more subtle look and depending on what style suits you and your chosen hairstyle, I would suggest wearing this to the side or back of your head rather than across the front of your forehead.

Work with your hairstylist and use your trial to test out different looks. Visiting bridal boutiques will allow you to try out different looks to help you make your decision.
