You know since you paid that much for your tiara you could possibly get it made into jewelry after your weeding.  There’s a company that does it called WINTERS and RAIN or you can try to find someone more local.  So you can transform something you used for your wedding day and still wear it for special occasions.

Mine was like $14 from a company on amazon called Sparkly Crystal.  They also have a website under the same name.  My tiara was scheduled to come in 2 weeks aftrer ordered and I got it in about 4 days including the weekend.

I looked at some from BelAire tiaras for like $200 and they were absolutely gorgeous, Panda. Consider it a lesson and wear it like the couture accessory it is!

I made a tiara with a sterling silver plated base, sterling silver plated wire, and some miscellaneous beads I had. I’m happy with the way it turned out, but now I think I’m hooked on hair flowers… I might give it to my flower girl to wear. My total cost was about $16. I ordered my supplies from http://jansjewels.com/index.html.

Mine is worth $200 but my dress was meant to come with free shoes but I didn’t like any of the ones they had so I convinced them to let me have the tiara instead.:D

I love my tiara! I have never seen anything like it before, It’s probably my favourite thing in my whole outfit! If I could work out how to move photos from the camera to the computer I would show it to you. It is about 4cm high and is made with swarovski crystal rhynstones and also beads.

My mum got married last year and she also had an amazing (yet small) $200 tiara, the problem was that the hair dresser puffed the front of her hair up so you couldn’t really see it. That was the only thing that she didn’t like about how her hair was done. Therefore her advice to anyone who has bought an expensive tiara is to make sure you can see it.

If you search for pageant tiaras you can find some ot there that aren’t too bad.  But some of the ones on ebay with decent prices-the shipping is about $30 since they’re being shipped from HK or China. 

I collect tiaras and I am pretty sure mine all cost under $50.  There’s one that cost $100 something, but it’s an official Miss America pageant local crown, which I got when I won a local pageant years ago.  You never know, one of your friends may be a former pageant gal who has a tiara in the top of her closet.

I never looked into the price of tiaras because I just hate the way they look. I dont think they belong at a wedding.

Mine is by Bel Air. The quality when I compared it to cheaper ones in the store was just superb. It was $240.

I got mine on Ebay for 25.00. It’s a replica of the one Audrey Hepburn wore in Roman Holiday. I love it. That’s my favorite movie… I’ve used a purse with the image on it for ever and ever… soooo only natural that that’s the look I went for lol. The design actually coordinates with the beading on my dress, thankfully. Now the quest to find a similar necklace and earrings!

I just got my tiara today….i love it! its so pretty and covered in rhinestones and swarovski crystals! I got it for $47 from this website….weddingfactorydirect.com. I ordered it last week and got it yesterday. I recommend this site they have a great things. The only this is they are a wholesaler so there are no returns…if something is damaged they will send you a new one or give you a credit but you cannot return anything. I took the chance and I love my tiara!

I haven’t found exactly what I’m wearing yet, but I guess price depends on what you’re looking for. For $175 I think you’re paying for the work and the quality. Handmade ones especially with lots of detail, I think cost more. Factory produced ones you find in Claire’s are much cheaper, but to be honest, you get what you pay for.
