    No tiaras for me! It’s not a pageant…it’s a wedding! Less is more sometimes.

    I’ve seen a tiara done and it looked sweet and tastefull…but it’s just not me. Besides that, I have a beautiful veil, and a tiara would just be too much.

    No tiaras for me! I have always loved a cage veil with a flower on the side.  After the first dance, I am taking off the veil and replacing it with some vintage flower pins.

    I tend to love a little bling, but I don’t like the overdone princess crown that looks like you got it from a beauty queen.  I think if I’m going to get a tiara… it better look like the real deal… fine jewelry heirloom!  Hmmm…  I think I wanna bee a real princess.  ;D

    I had to vote I’m not sure.  I love tiaras. I was planning on wearing one, and part of me still wishes I was going to wear one. However, I found a gorgeous vintage necklace that I’m going to wear, and a tiara just doesn’t look right with it.  I love my vintage necklace, so I’m not going to change my mind about not wearing a tiara. Giving up the tiara is a little thing.

    Learn something new everyday. I had no idea that brides wore tiaras unless they were royalty. They’re definitely not my style. I’d most likely wear a flower instead.

    I really didn’t think a tiara would suit me at all, thought it would be too brash for me. But tried one on and it looked great, really completed the look.

    I went sans vail, tiara and headband… and opted for five spray roses that i had a florist make for inserting in the ‘do. I LOVED IT. The only problem I had was that they started looking dead during the reception, so I would suggest getting two sets done to switch in between :).

    I think most brides these days are NOT wearing traditional bridal tiaras. There are so many great hair accessories available. Look at etsy.com and haircomesthebride.com for tons of great ideas, including hair flowers, feathers, fascinators and jeweled ribbons. I wore a simple headband with crystals and pearls (see below) but if I had it to do again, I think I’d wear a jeweled hair ribbon — something a touch more dramatic.

    I think these things go in waves. Tiaras are very 90s! Ten years from now the girls on the Bee will be saying ugh, hair flowers and bird cage veils, so cheesy and 2010 😉

    I am in a tough situation because when I was a little girl I was given a very high quality diamond tiara for my hope chest. It’s literally heirloom quality and has amazing diamonds. There is literally no other occasion on which I will use this thing. Problem is, I HATE bling, of any kind (no beading or sparklies on my dress!) and I don’t really care for the look.

    But but but, it’s such a sentimental piece. And it’s been in my hope chest for about 10 years. And what else am I going to do with this thing? Any ideas on a solution ladies? I was wondering if I could just wear it for the church and then take it off for the reception… but that would probably mess up my hair…ugh.

    @Magdalena: Wear it! So awesome! What other occasion in your life will you have to wear one without irony? You can tuck it under a veil.

    I wouldn’t wear a tiara myself, but I have worn a fake one for Halloween… as Holly Golightly. Was pretty fun.

    I have bought too many accessories out of indecisiveness! I bought um two headbands and two tiara combs. I am selling one of my tiara combs cause I feel like it’s too regal for me. The other tiara comb I may use. It almost could pass as a headband. It’s really between a headband and a tiara comb..as long as they aren’t too much..it looks pretty ok!
