I really don’t like them, I never have. I think they look juvenile, and remind me of a little girl playing princess, not an adult woman entering into a lifelong commitment.

But to each their own.

When I graduated high school, ( waaaay back in 2000) Tiaras were all the rage. Now I think they look dated, but that’s just me 🙂

I don’t think it’s tacky or outdated.   If it’s a personal prefrence then I say good on them.

See those Gypsy tiaras on “My big fat Gypsy wedding”   they are amazing and I guess they would be heavy too. 

I wouldn’t wear one.  I wore one as a bridesmaid to my older sister’s wedding and I felt like I had a big head (I had my hair curled and in an up do) but a tiara is supposed to be classic.

They’re ridiculously outdated and I hate them.

But I feel besides prom and maybe a sweet 16, the average non-Kate Middleton woman really won’t have any other tiara-wearing opportunities in their life, so I understand why they just won’t go away. Everyone deserves to feel like a princess.

Also, there’s a big difference between tiaras and a spangly headband.

I had originally wanted to just have a flower in my hair with no veil.

But my lovely mother really wanted to buy me a veil and a tiara. She wasn’t pushy about it or anything, so I took it more as a token of love. We don’t have a lot of money, but she wanted to give something to me to wear on the day (my Mother-In-Law bought my wedding dress). 

I ended up wearing both on my wedding day, and my hairdresser was awesome enough to make it look more like a hairband type of thing, rather than a prom-y princess tiara. 

To each her own!

I don’t think they’re outdated. But I’m also a bit biased because I want a tiara… and a fascinator… and a flower crown…

Here’s me in my tiara – and I felt I was rockin it!  Even if other brides think they are outdated, its what I wanted for my wedding day, so I loved it.  To each their own – and millions of brides are beautiful with or without tiaras!!!

I love all things princesses but will admit I don’t like tiara’s for weddings. I did rock one for my b-party though!

Yes, they definitely are!! I think they immediately make any bridal look seem outdated. I also think they cheapen the look. I can never figure out why a grown woman would want to look like a prom queen or a pageant queen.

I feel that tiaras are a classic look. My friend wore one at her wedding and it looked amazing. She also had excellent ‘tiara hair’ as they call it over at The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor

Like everything, there will be people who love and people who don’t like them. If someone wants to wear a tiara, I think they should go for it!

When I first clicked on this thread, i was thinking that tiaras were a newer thing at weddings. That was just me recalling the wedding pictures where I saw brides donning tiaras…all of them seemed to be anywhere from the late 1990s to about the mid 2000s.

I was right – it’s a newer tradition, but they seemed to fade out from the mainstream. I hate to call things outdated, even if they’re clearly not my style, so I’ll just say that I haven’t seen any lately.

Absolutely just say no. It’s not that it’s outdated, it just looks bizarre unless you’re Kate Middleton and you’re wearing that Cartier tiara, which was so gorgeous and appropriate because she’s royalty.

I don’t think so. I personally hate flower crowns and giant combs, but I love classy tiaras and headbands. So to each their own.

I always thought tiaras were way over the top for a wedding.
