What are your general opinions on tiaras? Yay or Nay?
Are they something you’ve always wanted? Something you think is gawdy or dated? Maybe something you just couldn’t care less about?
I am not really a ‘princessy’ type ( for want of a less stereotypical term) so tiaras have never really been on my raydar until I happened across this photo and my heart stopped. I am now thinking an understated semi tiara like this could be something I would absolutely love (especially with that drop veil) !
Would love to hear your pros and cons on tiaras folks!

I hate traditional tiaras. I’ve always found them gaudy and too princessy for my taste.
But that is not a traditional tiara. It’s more like an embellished headband and I love it.

I think of this more as a headband/headpiece than a tiara. I love it! So cute.
I voted Nay on tiaras, I think they are becoming fairly dated I guess.

I like tiaras, as long as they are fairly small and not huge or over the top a la big fat gypsy weddings
ETA: I don’t have the desire to be a princess or anything (although I am considering the 2011 Alfred Angelo Belle dress) I just like the look of tiaras

@justjade: That is not a tiara, because that is beautiful. I see that as more of an embellished head band or clip.
This is a tiara
I’ve never seen anyone in real life pull it off. I don’t understand the whole desire to be a princess when you get married either though

I think tiaras look ridiculous, to be honest. OP, the same photo that you posted is not a tiara by any means, and looks very pretty!

Generally i say no to tiaras! But Lady Mary is (always) the exception! i love the vintage style headband/piece.

I guess I am by myself, but then again mine is an actual crown, a remake of the crown queen Elizabeth wore on her wedding day, it’s only like 2 inches tall though so it’s not to scale, but I will wear it with pride, tackiness or dated be damned.

If that is your definition of a tiara, then yes. Otherwise, I’m not a fan.

@Sassy9226: That will look great, you are not alone in your opinion at all 🙂

Can’t stand them. Too dated. Too princessy to me.

@Sassy9226: Rock it! To each their own. My Boyfriend or Best Friend wore a tiara and she loved it!

I don’t like tiaras, but I LOVED Mary’s headband! I wish I could find a similar one.

I wore a crown and it was beautiful. Some people on here are really rude about them but I HAVE seen people ‘pull them off’ and they looked amazing. The tiara you posted is beautiful, rock it without worry!
Here’s my beauty, I was worried about wearing it because of people on here but in the end I was so happy I did!

I agree that is more of a headband than a tiara.
I think tiaras look awful unless they are “real”. If they aren’t made of real precious metals and stones, then it’s a bit like saying you are something you’re really not.
I hate most costume jewelry for the same reason.
