Crowns are used for religious ceremonies in Orthodox Christian countries, where the style of the crown can change from country to country.
While in some ceremonies, the couple gets the “royal” looking crown, others, use simpler “tiaras” or even more minimal than that. The couple could in theory, choose the style of the crowns that suits them the most, but it is always good to ask your priest for guidance, before finalizing any decision. In Greece, widely popular are the minimal simple metal “wreath” shapes, usually made with precious or semi-precious metals like silver or gold.
Many people see the importance of their crowns and they cherish them forever. Similar to wedding rings, they represent a bond between a husband a wife or King and Queen of the family. The crowns are usually kept in a sacred place in your home, or above your bed.
The crowns or “Stefana” as they call them in Greece, are joined with a ribbon, which symbolizes the unity of the couple, while the crowns symbolize God’s glory and honor, making the couple King and Queen of their home, which they rule with wisdom and integrity.
As everything evolves, so does the design and style of modern wedding crowns.
“The wedding crowns first appear in ancient Greece, made of natural materials and embellished with lemon blossoms, symbol of Purity. In the course of time new materials are incorporated and wedding crowns are transformed into royal symbols. In Christianity, marriage symbolizes the creation of a new kingdom, which is the house and the family of the newlyweds. The wedding crowns, two circles of life that unite into one.”
