I’ve competed in pageants all of my life so I have always assumed I’d wear some form of a tiara on my wedding day. Now that I’ve started planning my wedding I’ve begun to shy away from the idea. I have planned for a while to have that be the final crown I’d ever wear, but now I fear it might seem too childish or tacky. Opinions? I know it’s my day and you’re going to say to wear what ever makes me happy but I don’t want those type of responses. I want honest opinions please!

I think it has a lot to do with styling. Just do you & you will have no regrets.

Honestly, I’ve seen them go both ways. The wrong style on the wrong person can look juvenile and ridiculous, but I’ve also seen them surprise me and look elegant. It definitely all depends on the person, the hair, the dress an the venue. I would imagine that if anyone would know how to style one, though, it would be you.

I’m not a fan. I rarely see a tiara on a bride and I think it looks good.

I hate the word tacky, but I always cringe when I see a bride wearing a tiara. What does getting married have to do with being a princess? (or a history of pageant competition?)

I don’t necessarily think it’s tacky. It’s not my style, and I won’t wear one on my day, but have a history with them which is sweet. And if you love the look, then you should wear one.
On the other hand, if you wear a tiara will it feel like just another pageant? I read a post on here once from a pageant girl, and she always wore form fitted dresses, so she decided she wanted to wear a ball gown for her wedding because she didn’t want to be compared to/or be reminded the days when she was competing by what she was wearing.

I love them and think it’s silly for people to say they’re silly. Especially the “if you’re not a princess you shouldn’t wear a tiara” comments. Only people lucky enough to be pushed out an annointed vag get to wear fun sparkly hats? How is that fair? Everyone should get to wear one if they want. And how is a tall headband OTT but a huge white floofy beaded or lace gown is just perfect? Doesn’t make sense. So I say wear it.

In Sweden every bride wears a crown by tradition, like every town has a special crown that the brides borrow. Sometimes families have their own, sometimes they’re rented.
Because every girl should feel like a princess on her wedding day! Even history all over the world has girls wearing tiara-like headpieces, including floral crowns.

Regardless of what anyone says, wear what you want and what you like. Whatever anyone else says or thinks is tacky does not matter one bit!
I didn’t respond to your poll because I think how good the tiara looks doesn’t depend on the girl, but on the tiara. I’ve seen good quality ones that are very beautiful.

That would be totally relevant if the OP were getting married in Sweden.
She also asked for honest opinions.

My 100% honest opinion: I think unless you are legitimately apart of a royal family or it is a cultural item/family heirloom, a tiara is incredibly tacky. To me, it absolutely screams early 2000’s, high maintenance, or like you’re trying too hard to play dress up when you shouldn’t be. Unless it’s for one of the first reasons as to why I think it’s okay, I can’t stand them.

I find they rarely look good…I too am a cringer. That said, it’s one of those things that doesnt hurt anyone else, and if wearing a tiara will truly make you happy, then knock yourself out.

I used to be the person who had a strong distaste for Tiara’s. HOWEVER, if chosen correctly and placed well, they can actually look quite elegant. So it really depends on the tiara and its placement. For example:
I much prefer a nice headpiece to a tiara still, however they can still look nice. Then again, the second picture may be classified as a headpiece and not a tiara…

I like them. I’m changing into a petite one for my reception after wearing a veil for my ceremony. I say go for it.

Maybe show us the kind of tiara you are thinking and we can provide feedback on it. 🙂
