When it comes to wedding accessories, none is more hotly debated than the bridal tiara. Some brides-to-be believe that the traditional princess tiara is an outdated piece that reminds them of children's fancy dress. But we believe that a woman's wedding day is a chance for her to go all out and make herself feel like royalty!
Ever since Kate Middleton married in a stunning Cartier piece designed for the late Queen Mother, the wedding tiara has been climbing in the popularity stakes. This traditional accessory is often associated with royalty, and we've seen many breathtaking designs on the heads of princesses (both real-life and on the silver screen) over the years.
So should you wear a stunning wedding tiara on your wedding day? The first thing you have to ask yourself is whether your day is suited to such a formal piece. If your dress, venue or theme is fairly casual, then a traditional tiara is going to look out of place as part of your bridal ensemble. We also recommend that you give the tiara pride of place among your wedding accessories. This glamorous piece speaks for itself, so don't overdo it with chandelier earrings or a large glitzy necklace.
We personally love the look of a tiara with a simple dress. One of the reasons that Kate's look worked so well at the Royal Wedding is that her dress was fairly conservative. Try a lace gown with long sleeves to get the same romantic yet traditional style.
