If you want to wear a tiara, wear one. If you’re still offset by the comments, consider a decorative hair comb or pretty headband/headpiece. I, personally, think those would look better than the tiara. I’m not against tiaras, but I don’t love them either. Some brides can tie them in their look really well. Some women want to feel like princesses on their wedding day, some want to be sexy, some want to be totally comfy. It’s up to the bride. People get judged for wearing sneakers or flats instead of heels on their wedding day or judged on the size of their wedding. I might catch all of hell if I take my shoes OFF & go barefoot during the yard games. Tuh. Who cares?! Enjoy your day & be confident with whatever look you choose.

All wedding fashions will look dated in 10 years or so. It’s the nature of the beast. When I got married in 2008, tiaras were pretty popular, so of course I got one. I think the right one can look really pretty.
You may want to get a smaller, more delicate tiara worn angled slightly towards your head instead of the huge pageant crowns you posted, like mine. I got it from princessbridetiaras.com and even though tiaras aren’t popular anymore, they are still in business!

Sorry, but tiaras are freaking awesome and I wear one whenever I can! (Also my giant pageant crown, because hey! I won a freaking crown!)
I channelled a princess on my wedding day and I dare anyone to say Audrey and I don’t look ab fab!

Tiara’s are not my thing- I would not wear one, but that doesn’t mean that others can’t rock it. If you feel comfortable go with it. I agree with the poster who suggested a jeweled headband or comb- it’s just a more subtle elegance.

The headpiece the model is wearing is lovely!

Think the 2nd one you posted is perfect and please ignore when people say negative things about tiaras. If it is what you want then do it. The consensus on wedding bee is that Pnina Tornai makes trashy dresses and tiaras are tacky. I wore both and felt like a princess becoming a queen. Do what is going to make you feel the best.

Wow, is that you? If so, gorgeous, and eff anyone who tried to make you feel anything less!
(Well, I mean, even if that’s not you, I’m sure you were gorgeous and still eff the haters!)

Thanks for the advice ladies. It’s given me a bit more confidence in my choice. I might try to buy a tiara and a headpiece. I’ll just have to see which one would work better for me.

You could also rock the tiara with a veil for the ceremony and switch to a sparkly headband for the reception. Best of both worlds!

I totally plan on wearing a tiara for my wedding and ROCKING it. Forget the haters. If you love it, it’s you who wear it. Everyone (esp. other women tbqh) are going to find something to nitpick about the bride. Get and wear your tiara with pride.

I may be the wrong person to ask because I am in fact wearing a crown (first appintment with the designer tomorrow – yay!) but I think tiaras are awesome. And I think anything has the potential to look awful if not executed well, even veils.
Here’s an idea of a beautiful crown from Viktoria Novak

That crown looks like the perfect fit for a Princess Tiana! Great job!

What’s wrong with wanting to feel like a princess on your wedding day? Am I missing something?
I like them. They’re too polished to go with the dresses I like and my look will be completely understated, my hair will probably be loose and natural. But tiaras do look gorgeous sometimes.

Have you looked into vintage wax flower crowns? Here is a stunning vintage reproduction:
I decided to wear a metal German Pre-WWII crown. I figured it was the only day in my life I could pull something like this off.
For my other wedding dress (the one I wore first) I wore an oversized flower crown with rosemary in it. Again, if you can’t do it on your wedding day then when can you?
As a quick note this was the best picture I had showing the flower crown. I makes faces like this all the time. And apprently on my wedding day.
