The dress is amazing! But I’m not too sure about the tiara. I’m 22 and had a rhinestone and pearl headband I decided against because it made me look like a child bride!

I would suggest skipping the tiara and getting a blingy headband instead. Same basic feel, but more grown-up.

@peonyinlove:  +1. If you’re trying to avoid that look, I think the tiara might be one of those things that makes you look like that. But if you love it, there’s nothing wrong with it.

I think your dress is gorgeous, and I say go for the tiara. It’s the only time you’ll have a legitimate reason for wearing one.

I sometimes look back at pictures from my first wedding when I was in my 20s (mom has them at her house, because they are beautiful pictures), and I wonder what I was thinking about my some of my choices (especially the choice of husband LOL!). But that was who I was at that time in my life.

The things I selected for my wedding in my 20s reflected who I was at that time in my life. You don’t want your wedding day to reflect someone you aren’t right now. You want it to reflect who you are now. And, yeah, in the future you’ll look back and wonder about some of your choices, but hopefully you say to yourself ‘but it was a perfect day.’

@AmyFarrahFowler:  Hahahaha! Awesome.

But no, I’d ditch the tiara too if you are concerned about looking too tween. Your dress is beautiful though!

It is HIGHLY unlikely that anyone will be able to look at their pictures 20 years from now and not cringe at something.

For example:  I was married once before at 20 (17 years ago… gah) and although the dress could still be worn today (Alfred Sung’s first collection… still dreamy and gorgeous and current) my HAIR!!! OMG my hair.  Tight ringlet curls in a 3/4 updo with STRAIGHT bangs and strings of pearls woven throughout.  *shudder

My point being:  just wear what makes you happy now, and look forward to feeling nostalgic looking back at pictures with your kids later.

The dress is AMAZING! But of you are worried about looking like you are playing dress up, loose the tiara. No matter what age a bride is, a tiara says dress up IMO. But in all other matters, don’t let anytell make you think your choices aren’t good just because you are young.

I think the dress is great.  I would get rid of the tiara if you are afraid of looking too young…I find them too childish/prom-ish on most people (I have seen some on here that can pull it off though).  I prefer headbands with a little something to the side or some pretty little hair clips/combs.

Wedding date twins! I am also a young bride. I will be 22 when we get married, I was 20 when we got engaged. I love the dress! I think it is modern and gorgeous. However, I am with some of the bees that the tiara might be a bit young. I am not usually a fan of tiaras in general.

Although I think Tiaras are fun, I do think they are kind of young looking on a bride.  I would say a good alternative is maybe a rhinestoned headband or something or a bedazzled clip.  You still get the fun of the glitz, but maybe is a bit more mature.

Gown is gorgeous, tiaras are generally a bit tacky In My Humble Opinion. But it’s totally a taste thing! If you love it, do it.
