Hi Bees! I’m looking for a crystal tiara about under 40-50 dollars that looks pretty similar to this (sorry in advance pic is sideways):
And a full volume petticoat for my dress to make it look like this (I have a petticoat on underneath the dress to make it fluff out) that’s under $25:

I would check ebay. I got a crystal tiara for $11 and a crystal headband for $18. I also bought a crinoline off of there but I think it was more like $30-40.

We paid full price for our petticoats, but we did get my headpiece and FI’s tiara off of ebay for $20 each as opposed to $100 and $189 MSRP.

Okay thanks ladies I will check ebay for the tiara. I checked there for the petticoats but wasn’t 100% sure of some of those would give me this look. I may have to end up renting the darn thing!

I bought a super mega crinoline from ebay, and it was poof-tastic! I think I paid $40 for it… brand new.

Check Hobby Lobby for the tiara. I think I got mine from there for like $15. Check the store ads for when their bridal stuff is half off. I got my crinoline from Ebay for maybe 20-40 bucks. Just as a warning, when I got my crinoline, it had a horrible fishy smell and I had to take it to the dry cleaners to get it out. Then when they got the smell out, they took the poof out too and I had to take it back to have it starched. Overall, adding in those costs, it was still cheaper than the $100 pricetag at the bridal salon.

I got both on eBay. For the crinoline, I would suggest looking only at the used ones. The new ones are almost all from Chinese sellers, and “one size fits all.” I’d be concerned that if your waist size was less than the maximum, all that extra fabric would make your waist look larger. However, I got a David’s Bridal one used for under $25.

I got my petticoat on craigslist for $20! You might try one of those chinese wholesale jewelry stores as well. I don’t know about other cities, but I know there are several in St. Louis.

Thanks you guys for all the helpful info! Fiance bought my petticoat from ebay for $15 and my mother surprised me with the veil and the tiara. Thank god she had my taste in mind when purchasing it because me and her has not always seen eye to eye when it comes to clothing.
