I much prefer a headband or hair comb over a tiara every single time.  I know some women like them, but I have never seen a bride with a tiara that I thought looked good (unless it was an actual diamond one!)  I know hair combs and headbands are all made of the same material, but they look so much nicer to me but when it is made into a tiara they look so cheap.

I just can’t with tiaras. They are very 80s/90s to me and not very modern. I also think they very much scream “princess’ in a negative way. Go with a ebautiful headband or hairpiece.

When I think tiara, I think prom, and since you are probably a very classy, grownup woman I would say going with a very blingy headpiece (like a headband) or comb would look beautiful.

Not a fan. They look really 90s to me. I think there are a ton of beautiful sparkly alternatives out there.

i wore a tiara for my prom and i went thru the whole princessy phase when i was a kid/teen, so tried to stay away from anything that could be interpreted as princessy for my wedding. 

like others, i think a blingy headband is prettier, but i don’t think there’s anything wrong with wearing a tiara if it’s what you want.

Don’t like them.

They seem pretentious & self-important.

Plus, I think a beautiful hair comb, hair flower, or other accessory would look more classy and timeless.

I love certain head pieces but Unless ots your quincenera, skip the tiara.

Unless you’re wearing a huge immaculate ballgown and you have a diamond or other high quality tiara, and you’ll be wearing it to you very formal wedding, then sure – tiara away.

If you’re having a run of the mill wedding, then no tiara. It’ll look like you’re trying to be a 90s princess.
