    I personally feel like tiaras are kind of dated (unless you’re princess Kate) … but how do YOU feel? If it’s perfect and princessy, then do what makes you happy.

    cantwaittobemrsf:  Veils are a really personal choice. They depend on the venue, the train length, the details of the dress. I’m a fan, and intend on wearing a cathedral-length one for my Catholic ceremony and formal reception. Try several one and see how you feel!

    Honestly, I agree with tiaras being a bit dated. Both my grandmother and aunt had them, but that was 50+ and 30+ yes ago…and they were both 19 when they married! 

    Veil is completely your call! I won’t be wearing one, but my ceremony is outside and might have a decent breeze blowing it all over the place.

    If it fits your venue, and you love it, go for it!

    Honestly, I feel like tiaras send off the “pretty, pretty princes vibe,” so I personally did not wear one. But if you really like them, it’s your wedding, your choice. I just stuck with a simple veil for the ceremony (I didn’t put it over my face) and took it off after for pictures and the reception.

    I voted for veil no tiara. I wore a tiara at my prom 12 years ago so I definitely wouldn’t wear one now as a grown woman.

    cantwaittobemrsf:  No tiara…please!  I think a nice alternative is a pretty headband that gives you the same feel but isn’t a tiara – I am wearing one like that. I think veils are beautiful – I’m wearing a cathedral length one!

    I see you’ve decided already, and I’m in agreement with the other girls, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do a sparkly hairpiece or headband!

    In my opinion, it’s a more sophisticated version of a tiara 🙂

    cantwaittobemrsf:  All personal preference. 

    I’m just going for a simple raw edge veil (but cathedral length) no other hair assessories. I not a fan of silver plate and rhinestones. I would prob go for a tiara if I could afford a real silver + gemstone one. 

    But if you find a tiara that you really like you should wear it. Everybride should feel like a princess on their wedding day, marrying their prince charming.  It really doesn’t matter what other brides think is fashionable.

    I wore a tiara and don’t think I looked dated AT ALL. Personal preference is key. I knew I wouldn’t wear a veil… so tiara it was!
