    I think it’s a great idea! We incorporated elements of Norwegian wedding tradtion into our wedding (solje for me and than a kransekake with our other cakes), I think it’s a great way to keep in touch with your heritage.

    Even without the explanation, I’d think it was cool. Both are gorgeous.

    If that is the expression of your culture you want to make at your wedding, go for it!  All of our mothers do that to us! Foot in mouth

    Look, I am a tiara hater forever, but I really, really love this idea and also the crown itself.

    I truly think it is a special nod to your heritage, and would encourage you to go for it. Get pics both with and without it, and there should be no way you would regret it : )

    hmm, at first I would have thought it to be a little out there.  But with the explaination and cultural signifigance, I love the idea of it.  I vote go for it.

    This is part of your culture so I think you should do it.

    I’m sorry, I don’t like this at all…  🙁 I think the focus will be on the crown instead of you and your face.

    I think its a nice idea.. you could wear it at your ceremony, and then get a more modern headpiece for the reception.

    I say go for it. It has great significance! I dont think you will regret it later. It will be a great addition to the ceremony, just remember to take it off if that is your wishes for the other pictures.

    I am actually debating this same thing myself – I have a crown that my grandmother made and gave me when I was a baby, so I would really like to incorporate it for the family/cultural significance… however I actually just hate the way I look wearing it.  I am trying to think of a way to have it displayed somewhere or even use it in my bouquet or something?? If you like the way it looks on you, you should wear it!

    At first glance I thought it was pretty strange, but after reading about the cultural part of it I think it’s pretty cool! Go for it!

    Big fan of including off-the-beaten-path cultural elements in weddings and this is fabulous.
