Tiara ... or not tiara

I always assumed I would wear a tiara when I got married. Let me back about: I pictured all brides wearing tiaras, when I thought about getting married, anyway. Planning a wedding was not a preoccupying thought in my mind, but I won't deny I never thought about it. At least a little, anyway.

Tiaras look so fun and regal ... and as I mentioned in this past Thursday's post, how many opportunities do most of us have to wear tiaras?! However, when you actually look at many tiaras, they just don't look right on so many brides. Sometimes, they look overdone, some are too big, some look obviously cheap, and some just don't look right.

Here are some examples from glamgal Click Glam Gal Designs, which are all very pretty examples, but I still don't know if I like them for me:

Not to mention, most tiaras look best with high updos or high buns, which is not necessarily the hair style I want to wear. Although it's fun to find a reason to wear tiaras, it may not look appropriate for me on my wedding day.

As an aside, they do look right on some brides:

I am still considering the tiara as part of my wedding look. It's definitely very traditional, like you said, and I don't know if I want the "high bun" look. Also, I haven't found a tiara that I am in love with. Most of the ones I like are quite pricey. Let us know what you decide! :)

Tiaras look so stunning, when done right. I just think it's hard to pull off ... and I've also noticed the good ones are sooo expensive.

I've been thinking of a hair jewel or flower at the back of my head, instead of a tiara. Still a bit of bling, but a little more subtle: something for folks to look at during the ceremony, as they look at my back!
