The Return of the Crown

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.

At Maria Elena Headpieces & Accessories, we understand the many different tastes and customs of our brides worldwide that is why over the years we have created collections that have something from everyone. From colorful pieces, to bold crowns, to ones adorned with moon and stars, there is truly something to match every romantic fantasy our brides might have in mind.

Another wonderful reason to choose a crown is how versatile they can be. Most of our crowns can give you at least two looks for your wedding they. Many can be worn backwards to adorn a bun, and then used they usual way at the top of the head.

Also, our crown our heirloom pieces to be passed on from generation to generation. As beautiful and memorable as you look, your daughters, nieces, goddaughters or any younger woman you choose can wear it and look as breathtaking celebrating her love, as you once did too. After all, how many times do we get to be queen for a night?

Here are some of the favorite crowns over the years, which have never gone, and never will go out of style.

We know this is a difficult time for businesses, couples, and individuals alike. At Maria Elena, we are committed to helping our local, National, and International customers in the best way we can during this uncertain time. Over the last few days, we’ve thought long and hard about how to best give back and provide our customers peace of mind, happiness, and hope—as has always been our priority throughout the past 25 years.


In the hopes of providing care and comfort after disasters such as this pandemic, Maria Elena Headpieces is supporting COVID-19 relief efforts through the American Red Cross. We are donating 5% of all purchases made through our online shop from April 1st - June 30th to help the Red Cross deliver relief and hope.


Our main concern is the health and safety of our employees. For that reason, and in following the safety guidelines imposed by our local and federal government, we have shifted to a work from home policy. This is limiting our hours and flexibility, but we’re still producing and shipping pieces out in the hopes that our accessories will give our customers a glimmer of hope and happiness during these trying times.

If you placed an order through one of our retailers: For specific questions, please contact your store directly so they can further assist. We have already produced and shipped out all orders that our stores requested.
