MORE FLORAL INSPIRATION

Blue Sky Flowers florist Liz Inigo-Jones says:  "There is nothing prettier than a little bridesmaid with a circlet made entirely of Gypsophila, or pretty daisies like white Santini Chrysanthemums."

Your flower choice will relate to the rest of your big day, of course, but when considering circlets you should always bear in mind who will be wearing it:  "It is a good idea to match the flower size to the size of the wearer, for example, smaller flowers for little girls, larger blooms for adults."

WHAT TO ASK YOUR FLORIST

There is also the question of what kind of blooms to use for smaller heads. The key to a beautiful circlet - as opposed to a crown which is more of a statement - is picking the right mix (and size) of blooms: "Spray Roses are very good as they come in a mix of sizes on one stem and are generally pretty robust. Larger flowers such as Spray Chrysanthemums, Roses, Freesia, small Calla Lilies and small peonies are all also good feature flowers, while details blooms like Waxflower, Gypsophilia, Statis, Limonia, Lavender (dried or fresh) plus foliage like Rosemary, Hebe, Ivy, Eucalyptus and Pittosporum ties it all together."
