    Tiara

    Headband

    Neither, I don't think either would look good with this particular style

    Niether, I think tiaras are tacky and/or out of style

    Not a fan of tiaras at all. Yes, I think tacky immediately when I see the word tiara.

    Tiaras to me are for toddlers or genuine royalty. BUT… I don’t know you and your tastes. Some could tell me that my polka dotted wedding dress makes them think of toddlers too.

    I think you could do just as well with a fabulously blingy headband.

    I don’t think they are tacky per se, I just don’t like the way they look.  Headbands, combs, and fascinators look much better to me. 

    As others have mentioned, unless you are royalty wearing a real tiara, I think they look cheap. Even though headbands and combs are made with the same materials, for some reason they don’t look as cheap to me.

    I think tiaras are *generally* tacky. It seems to be the sort of thing that’s done either exactly right, or very, very wrong.

    THAT tiara is going to make you look like you just won homecoming queen. If that’s what you’re going for, do it, but I think there are a few on BHLDN that are much more appropriate.

    Unless you have a tiara with real diamonds, I wouldn’t do it.  But I didn’t vote.  Who cares what I think?  This is your day and you should do what you like.

    Our weddings are the only time we can get away with such things – unless one happens to be a royal or a beauty queen. A tiara would certianly go with that dress!

    @HoneyBee22:  I feel very strongly that if youn’re not a princess and you do not rule a country, you should not be wearing a tiara. It just looks ridiculous. Now headbands, I love.
