I agree with the other PPs, ditch the tiara.

Your dress is stunning, you will have no regrets! I agree with the posters above, maybe nix the tiara. There are alot of blingy hairpieces you can choose from that would look a little more grown up. But hey, if you love the tiara then go for it, you are a young bride, so it’s ok to look young : )

It’s not like you’re still 3′ tall with a baby face. You’re full grown. You’re going to look every bit as adult as any of the older brides on here,  minus some wrinkles. But if you’re really worried about it, save the tiara for the bachelorette party.

Dress is perfect, however I would lose the tiara. The tiara will definitely make you look younger and will date really easily I think

I think your dress should express the time of your life you were in when  you got married. I’m struggling with not  liking my dress because I do not feel like it does that enough for me. You are going to be a young bride you should wear a fun youthful dress tiara and all. We are all going to look back on our wedding dress and say what was I thinking but I think what is important is that you love it when you are in it.

Honestly, go with your gut feeling right now. Looking back after a few years, people are always going to think about things they would’ve or could’ve done differently. But you look fabulous in your dress! And many brides want that “princess” feeling, so there’s definitely nothing wrong with that! Good luck with everything!

Love the dress but SKIP the tiara! The tiara will absolutely make it more like you are trying to play “dress up”. Wear what you love NOW! (especially since you look amazing) ๐Ÿ™‚

Great dress, but ditch the tiara. Sadly, whenever I see a bride wearing a tiara now, I think My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.

Yeah, I watch too many wedding reality shows.

I love everything about your plan! The dress is amazing, I love the tiara, and the veil will look great with it! I am sure it will look beautiful all together!

You know who wore a tiara and looked amazing? This lady here:

and I think yours is small enough to look just as lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, this is what I imagine when someone says gypsy tiara, not a little sparkly one like the OP’s. I think there’s a huge difference!

I don’t understand why you’re getting so many negative comments about the tiara. 

It’s a beautiful tiara.  Your wedding day is the one day when you CAN go completely over the top and no thinks twice about it.  And if you love it and have always dreamed of wearing one, no one should kill that dream. 

Ladies, I’m sorry, but on your wedding day, you ARE kind of playing dress up. I’m sure none of you wear elaborate wedding gowns every day. I mean, really, how often do you wear an elaborate gown with a veil, petticoat, expensive looking blingy jewelry, along with having your hair and make up done?

Your dress is gorgeous. And I like tiaras but I feel your dress is already “princessy” enough with the sparkles so the maybe go for a headband?

Although if you’re really keen on the tiara..go for it! It’s your day!

I agree with many previous posters…dress is GORGEOUS, but i’d take away the tiara. I’m pretty young (23, will be 24 at wedding), and that to me only adds to the “little girl” feeling.

You know something? When else can you even remotely get away with the big dress and a tiara? Never, that’s when! So I say go for it!  The tiara is pretty, and as long as you carry yourself with grace it will be beautiful. 

A lot of my regrets in matters like this in life came because I went just a little too cautious on something or other. Maybe you’ll look back and think, “that was childish,” but I think it more likely that you’ll instead think “that was so fun.”  Even if you think you looked like you were playing dress up, I think you’ll still appreciate the youthfulness and vigor that inspired it.  Yeah, sure, you could get a glitzy headpiece instead, but that is what everyone does, kind of a dime a dozen thing.  If you love tiaras, you wear a bloody tiara, dagnabbit! ๐Ÿ˜€

I don’t think you’ll regret the dress and tiara, personally. ๐Ÿ™‚
