i just picked my earrings… they’re going to be large semi-precious rubies with white topaz stones surround them on top, and a cluster of white topaz and one small ruby on the lobe. they’re pretty large, like 3 1/4 inches but i’m 5’8 and my dress is a big ball gown… the kate hudson dress from bride wars. i can’t decide if i should do a tiara???? i always disliked them, but i feel like it may fit the whole royal look i’m going for with the ruby earrings and the big ball gown.
the first pic is to show you what the earrings looked like originally, and the second pic is to give you an idea of how it will be customized to be made bigger… it’s kind of hard to tell but my description above basically says it.

I would say don’t. Not only do they look dated in most cases, but with your earrings and the princess dress it would be overkill. I think you will look regal enough without one. Very pretty earrings btw. Maybe do a really elegant updo for your hair and use a bejeweled pin or comb? Something like these: http://www.advantagebridal.com/wedaybrhapi.html

A tiara would be overkill. Even if Kate Middleton did it, she’d do it because it was expected. If you were Kate Middleton and wore those with a tiara because it was expected, I’d still think it was overkill.

I’m not a fan of them myself, but if you love them, go for it!

i agree, overkill. you could always do a headband w/ crystals on it maybe. but a tiara would be too much.

No tiara, I think they are on their way out.

I too think it’d be too much with your earrings so I say don’t

you know how they say for makeup: intense eyes or intense lips, not both?
Exact same thing.

I’d skip the tiara as well. Overkill & dated. I’ve never cared for the look, personally.

I love a tiara – but those earrings are AH-Mazing and don’t deserve to share the spotlight!
Skip the tiara and instead maybe do jewelled bobby pins for a more subtle sparkle to allow the earring (and your face!) to have the focus.
